About 7-8, I'd estimate.

Would like to go out and do stuff, and most local places are still shut.

hey, I still have a job and a good income. This will be over soon and we'll be fine.

I've found my "happiness" has a near perfect correlation to my diet. If I eat like shit, I feel like shit and vice versa.

Quitting caffeine made me an exponentially more positive person. So much happier that I sometimes cringe at myself. Really only quit because I didn't want to go bald.

Even working 100 hour weeks isn't as bad anymore.

Caffeine/coffee can cause iron deficiency and vitamin D deficiency. You really need to eat a lot of heme-iron and vitamin D rich foods in order to not lose hair on coffee. I personally can attest as my hair stopped shedding when I quit coffee and added a few more eggs/red meats to my diet.

Probably an 8 out of 10. I don't always feel this happy. And this score comes in rare form as my mom is getting locked up tomorrow in memory care and my parents kitty went missing yesterday. I trained this kitty and they had it since June. It's half exotic (Snow Bengal Siamese) so it likely got catnapped in broad daylight. Sucks. The vet actually warned me about this. But, I am here on this earth to serve a purpose and that is doing good works to those around me. This makes me happy. I really wish the kitty would come back though. We were super tight. It's real bad timing as my Dad will be alone when I'm not visiting. No kitty no wife. Terrible timing. It's actually the second Snow Bengal Siamese that they had and the other went missing as well after a few years. Damn.

Why am I here? Like what the fuck is the point of all this bullshit? I don't even have a life philosophy or purpose at this point. I'm so lost.

3.5/4  - High stress period in my life and contemplating/executing leaving finance and yeeting the rest of my 20's. All while stuck inside with snow on the ground and my friends moving away has made the new year exceptionally challenging. I'm normally a happy guy, but coming to terms with the fleeting nature of youth + pandemic is a real bummer.

Probably a 2. Live alone and work in a sweaty group with poor culture. Have been facing significant health problems (both physical and mental) over the past several months and am reaching a breaking point.
