The mood is not an emotional situation. It is a state, a way to stay, to be, which dosen't last much longer and fades over in the rest of the psychic world. Emotions differs in that, are less specific, less intense and longer-lasting.
I prefer this state of mind, some call it a mood disorder, as they feel that my activity is exaggerated, my joy defined as euphoria, my affection as excessive and my personality as exalted.
As for me, I feel happy, optimistic, full of energy and I'm going to wipe out the world with my moves. These come from the depths of my being, from the basics, I feel like an animal and you'll see what it really means to be in a animalistic mood, in a bestial mood. [Antonieta Landa]
