It’s all Greek to me

In my Intro to Western Philosophy class I’ve had a hard time connecting to some of the things being taught, until Epicurus.

Epicurus was a Greek philosopher who believed that a purposeful, happy life is achieved through relaxation, indulgence in certain pleasures (intellectual conversation, and food), and little to none of other pleasures (alcohol, and most sex).

Heck, I’m already doing most of that…

I guess I’m happy then.
