Emotional Geometry

I'm wearing:

1. Denim jacket, from Pull & Bear.
2. Black & white t-shirt with inserted triangle, from Asos.
3. Super skinny jeans, from Asos.
4. Black, white and gold sneakers, from Adidas.
5. Hip flask necklace, from Pull & Bear.
6. Cross rings, from Asos.
Just like sadness is usually triggered by an action, I'm making myself believe that happiness works in the same way, that there's a spark that starts something and, eventually, everything gets better. If an uncontained spark manages to shine and start a rebellion (I'm pseudo-quoting The Hunger Games here), wouldn't that be enough to improve my emotional state of mind?

I think it works like geometry or better said: emotional geometry. I mean, there's formulas and everything. For example, if you make someone angry, you'll feel bad after. If you start something, you have to finish it... Stuff like that. When I was little, I was pretty bad at geometry, I always came up with very complex figures and, while calculating the perimeter was easy, the inside area was a huge mess. 

But, after everything, I always found my figures to be the most exciting. I guess it happens just like that in real life. Complex beats classic, all the time. And what thought sparked this weird metaphoric analysis? An inserted triangle t-shirt from Asos. It's quite cool. The light blue denim jacket and the gold details really add something to what could be a blah-black&white outfit, don't you think?

**Spanish translation below**
// Así como la tristeza es generalmente detonada por una acción, me obligo a pensar que producir sentimientos felices funciona de la misma manera, que hay una chispa que inicia algo y, eventualmente, todo mejora. Si una chispa que no puede ser contenida se las arregla para brillar e iniciar una rebelión (estoy haciendo una pseudo-referencia a The Hunger Games), ¿no sería eso suficiente para mejorar mi estado emocional?

Creo que funciona como geometría, o mejor dicho: geometría emocional. Digo, hay fórmulas y toda la cosa. Por ejemplo, si haces enojar a alguien, te sientes mal después. Si inicias algo, debes finalizarlo... Cosas así. Cuando era chiquito, era muy malo para geometría, siempre salía con figuras muy complejas y, si bien calcular el perímetro era fácil, el área interna era un desastre.

Pero, después de todo, siempre encontraba mis figuras como las más emocionantes. Supongo que pasa así en la vida real. Complejo le gana a clásico, siempre. Y se preguntarán ¿cuál pensamiento fue la chispa para este análisis metafórico? Una playera con un triángulo insertado que conseguí en Asos. Está buena onda. La chamarra de mezclilla y los detalles dorados realmente le añaden algo a lo que sería un conjuntito blanco y negro blah, ¿no lo creen?
Let's draw complex figures together sometime.
Love always, Hen.
