    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...

    I

    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...

    No More Snow For Me

    The anticipation of a life changing move really seems to get the mind engaged. I am very close now to leaving the home state. I find myself falling into daydreams throughout the day now in regards to the move. I dream of greener pastures and vast oceans with sparkling ripples...

    I'm Finally realizing

    that I'm not a cold climate person. I absolutely hate the fact that I can't go outside and enjoy 30 minutes of sunshine. This is not surprising given my parents / ancestors all grew up in warm and tropical climate part of the world. Last few month, the cold and snowy dates...
