The winter has always gotten to me. Less so when I lived in a place where winter activity abounded or when I lived in places where I knew lots fun and awesome people - hello Bread Loaf! But this year, because I am living with someone I love, who does not deserve to have to put up with my very moody self if I can help it, I invested in one of those SAD Lamps.

I guess I can't say whether or not it is working for me as I am not 100% consistent in my usage of it. I think it is helping some as I am not feeling nearly as bad as I know that I could. Today, however, I know that I need it as it is dark out. I don't think the sun will be peeping out at all and I really could use something to pick me up and keep me going while I write, write, write away on the dissertation.
