I used to get really depressed in the winter, but I've been on more of an even keel the past couple years. The happy thinking part of my brain still goes into hibernation, but at least the dark, nasty emo part hasn't taken full-on control. Being a bit of a zombie is definitely far better than the usual winter moods.
But now I need to snap out of it. I haven't written much of anything for weeks and weeks, so I'm trying to kickstart that again. Come on, brain, springtime starts tomorrow!
