January 24, 2007

We once learned in health class about a condition called S.A.D., which stands for Seasonal Affective Disorder. If I remember right (I have been known to tune out in class once in a while), S.A.D. is a sort of winter depression caused by lack of sunlight. I think I may be coming down with a bad case of the S.A.D.

It's dark when I go to school. It's dark when I come home from school. My school has the tiniest windows so it's even dark when I'm at school. Maybe people are hard-wired to hibernate like bears do but we just have more willpower to fight the urge? I, for one, am ready to throw in the towel. I'll be in my cave if you need me.

Things are still going well with Vanessa, which I'm stoked about but it's sort of hard to see her because she lives on the other side of town (and I can't seem to find the energy to do much more than play video games and nap). At least we chat on MSN and see each other on the weekends. Valentines Day isn't that far away so I guess I should start thinking about what to do for that. Honestly, I always feel sort of embarrassed trying to be "romantic". It just feels so cheesy and fake - like I'm in some sort of Jennifer Aniston movie - only without the fat paycheck.

So, how do you cope with the Winter Blues? Or do you get them at all? Maybe you're one of those crazy people I see jogging in the dark and rain all winter (If you are, what's your secret?!). .

    What Do You Do When You Get Blue?

    • I curl up in front of the tube with a bowl of ice cream.
    • I retreat to my room and crank the tunes.
    • I surround myself with my friends and fam.
    • I take long walks and avoid my peeps at all costs.
