    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...

    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...

    Especially Long Winters, But Also Rainy Days Bring Me Down

    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*

    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...

    Winter is not my best season. When it comes around, I get depressed. However, I know it's necessary for the earth to cleanse itself from germs, among other things.
