Discussion in 'GENERAL CHATTING' started by Hana, Jan 8, 2017.

  1. Serendipity
    Serendipity
    means a "fortunate happenstance" or "pleasant surprise". It was coined by Horace Walpole in 1754. In a letter he wrote to a friend, Walpole explained an unexpected discovery he had made by reference to a Persian fairy tale, The Three Princes of Serendip.


    What are the pleasant and unexpected surprises or fortunes that you've encountered today?​

  5. Is this serendipity in the meaning of a fortunate happenstance, which doesn't always have to be pleasant? :P

  8. My sister casually told me that she is flying over next week to visit us and stay with us for a month. :D

    My parents still have no idea because they aren't picking up their phone, so I have been giddy all day to drop the bomb on them.
