    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 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*
