insouciant

in

insouciant \in-SOO-see-uhnt\, adjective:Marked by lighthearted unconcern or indifference; carefree; nonchalant.

Now there's a nice word, one i wish i could use to describe myself; instead of melancholy, moody, and the worst one: depressed.

I always thought you were "insouciant", but I pronounced it the french way...

I'll join you in being anti-insouciant. Life just gets too heavy sometimes. :(

Mare - you've got it.
