This Month is NOT Such a Special Month...



And neither are the next two really. I'll be honest, when Christmas is over, I get a little depressed. Not the I-want-to-go-in-my-room-and-never-come-out kind of depressed. But the man-this-weather-sucks depressed. Or the where-did-my-Christmas-break-go? depressed. Or why-do-I-live-in-such-a-freezing-tundra? depressed. Or I'm-still-in-school? depressed. Or where-is-my-boyfriend? depressed. And do you want to know what's the most depressing thing of all? That we still have another 3 months of this nonsense. 

January is lame. February is even lamer. And March! Don't even get me started on March. Sheesh! If I could I'd stay in my bed for the entire month of March. Every year. All month. In. My. Bed. 

Although I should be looking on the bright side this year. March won't be so bad, at least not for a day or two. I will be getting a new nephew during that dreadful month. Which equals most likely missing school, which equals me smiling more and scowling less. Plus, I'll have a new baby nephew to mold into someone awesome(Becca isn't the only mind-molder). But seriously, January is 31 frigid days. February is 28, but throw Valentine's Day in there and the fact that you don't have a boyfriend, makes this month even worse than January. Then March comes and people are like, it's not so bad, there's St. Patrick's day and maybe a Spring Break and a new baby... What good does St. Patrick's day do for me? It's some weird Irish holiday that's not important enough to get work or school off. Also, if I'm not wearing a lousy piece of green something on my person then I get pinched by people who think they're being clever and funny. We're adults now people! Stop pinching me. In fact, I've made it a point NOT to wear green on St. Patrick's day just to show that I'm not supporting it. And then there's my Spring Break. Okay, that's nice, a break from school. But in recent years it has dwindled down to a measly 2 DAYS! It used to be a WEEK!!! I don't know how that happened. I think the evil dictators of the school board set up a plan to slowly start removing days from our spring break in an attempt to make it so we wouldn't really notice, but they haven't fooled me! I miss my week long spring break. And on top of that, what's with it being in March? March isn't Spring! It's the dead of winter! What am I going to do in the dead of winter on my "Spring Break"? Yeah, great, maybe I'll go lay out and try to get a tan while sporting boots, ski gloves and a hat. SPRING BREAK '09!!!!!!!!

But then April comes, and it's still not real warm, but you can tell that winter is thinking about going away finally. And then the light at the end of the tunnel continues to become brighter and brighter with each passing day. The end of the semester is nearing and summer is closing in. Ahh joyous, beautiful, lovely, flower-filled May! AND my Golden 22 Birfday. 

I guess I'll just keep my mind on the glorious month of May and hope that I can survive the next three dreary, gray, white-skinned months which lie ahead.

Cady,
So, I've been thinking. There are three solutions to remedy your SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). 1. Move with Uncle Bill under a bridge in La Jolla, CA. He's been threatening to do it for years now. Perhaps he just needs a sidekick, you would be perfect. The climate is very mild and the sun is always shining. 2. About the boyfriend thing, have you seen Lars and the Real Girl? Maybe you could send for a Real Boy, he may be quiet, but I bet he would be a great listener. 3. According to Wikipedia, light therapy may help. So, let's get a giant lamp and put it in our apartment and just keep it on all of the time.
Just some suggestions.

You need to go snowboarding on a beautiful clear day and see how really beautiful winter can be from the top of a mountain. How about it? MOM

I'm hurt. You've totally dissed my birthday month after I specifically asked you not to. What did March every do to you Kate?!?!?! And once my baby's born, you better back off our birthday month!

Toe Pick,
I hear ya loud and clear. I just saw Miracle on 34th Street sitting on the end of the counter and about watched it. Then I remembered that it's January. JANUARY? Seriously? Stupiduary.

However, look at all the dreariness this way: Come May, we'll have a Bachelor hopefully getting a bangin' new wife. And we've got 14 weeks to watch all the magic happen. (Also, 14 episodes of Peyton being freakin' pregnant.)

Love, your neighbor

PS: What did the deleted comment say? something dirty?
