Well. I did it. My New Years Resolution last year was to gain one hundred pounds in my Pokemon form, and I did it. So, I'm happy about that. I just got weighed at the Pokemon center. I even beat my goal by ten pounds.

I think this year my resolution should be another hundred pounds. That would be good. And maybe to sleep a little bit less. I tried coffee today - It's actually kind of tasty with a lot of sugar and some whipped cream and some cinnamon on it.

Yeah... but....

I went to sleep and missed Vinnie leaving. I didn't get to say Bye. He left a note and I read his thing on the network. And it's OK! He can go if he needs to and I hope he comes home happy! But still... I feel bad. And who knows what else I might miss while I'm sleeping, you know? It can be hard to wake up and what if someone needs me...

He'll be back. Sometimes saying goodbye makes things more painful.

But you are very thoughtful for your concern.

Well. Maybe they do. But. They're still important, you know.

I want to be more helpful. I can't just let everyone else be unhappy while I'm sleeping happily in bed. That's not fair. I don't think so.

Sometimes you can not help those who are unhappy. They must learn to be happy by themselves.

But I can try and help them, and maybe it won't work all the time. But sometimes it might and that's the important part, right?

I know it is. Maybe if I was awake more, I could have helped Vinnie feel like he didn't have to go. Maybe I could have spent more time with Marie and helped him out of whatever that thing with Volgin was a few weeks ago. And even if I couldn't do either of those things, they would know I tried and maybe that would make them a little bit happier.

I think Vinnie needed to go. This is someething he must do on his own.

You can't be responsible for people's happiness though. You must first worry about yourself before you can help others.

I don't understand that.

Well, I don't know. I think worrying about myself is a little bit selfish when things are going kind of sour for everyone else.

But it is their responsibility to handle their happiness.

....maybe. But... if you can help them then isn't it best to do that? You can't just let people be sad because it's their responsibility to be happy. That sounds so... uncaring. Doesn't it?

I dunno. This is confusing. I just want our team to be happy again.

Hnn. I suppose the easiest way to explain it is... As long as you aren't neglecting your own needs for someone else. And sometimes, no matter how hard you try, they may not want to be helped.

Well. My needs seem to be kinda getting in the way of things a little. I've always kinda thought so. But more lately.

I don't think they are... At least not from what I have seen.
