    Yes! ...

    Yes! I just feel happier in the sun. Strangely, I love the rain more than the sun. I just like the warmth of the sun's rays on my skin. When it's a good sunny day I like to take a nap out on my cement driveway. I know, it's weird, but it's comfortable.

    Winter Drains The Life Out Of Me

    I am generally depressed throughout all of the cold months. Throughout the winter it doesn't take much to make me upset, I have no energy, I'm always ill, and I can never get warm enough. Also, in the winter it takes very little to tire me out, whereas in the summertime I can get...
