    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 don't hate winter. I just don't like how it's so cold. The worst part is that the cold is sensitive to my stomach and I feel like vomiting throughout the whole winter.
