    Tis The Season ....

    Winter has always depressed me. But this winter is a welcome change! Ahhh.... I need this down time to energize myself. We all change with the seasons, I know this. I am such a hyper soul that it has always been hard on me to sit still. I get bored easily. Not this time. This...

    I Hate It

    I hate cold. I can't stand the grey. Trees depress me when they don't have leaves on them. I miss the sunlight. I miss being able to go outside with bare legs. I hate the shivering. I hate that between the end of October and the beginning of March, I'm never ever truly warm. I'm...

    I'm Finally realizing

    I have to get out of Minnesota before another winter.  I honestly don't think I could handle another winter in my life.  Another cold, long winter in Minnesota.   :( Just thinking about it gets me sad again.  *sigh*

    Winter Definitely Depresses Me

    I'm a fairly optimistic person. I have my mopey periods, but I always bounce back. However, when winter settles in I begin spiraling into this pathetic, hopeless, miserable descent. I like the snow and all...but the reality is that it's COLD, you can't stay out for very long, and...

    Especially Long Winters, But Also Rainy Days Bring Me Down

    If it's a long winter like I've had before in Belgium, it's getting really depressing, though it was already depressing when it started. I also feel quite down when it's raining all day long and it's very cloudy outside and dark inside.. yuck.. I really don't like it. But...
