How Are You Feeling Today?





I thought I should provide a free mental health check, since today is the infamous Blue Monday. That's the day experts have identified as the most depressing day of the year.

(They took six factors into account when searching for the gloomiest day: bad weather, high levels of debt, the number of days since Christmas, the number of days since failing our New Year's resolutions, low motivational levels and the feeling of a need to take action.)

This year, the state of the economy may make Blue Monday, 2009 the worst in history! Low spirits will inspire a high percentage of people to play hooky from work/school, and accidents of all sorts will be far more likely to occur. So I recommend that we all stay in bed today!

What? You're already out of bed? How brave of you! Please feel free to share your feelings with the rest of us.

Actually, feeling pretty good, but then again I just got up since I have the day off do to Martin Luther King Jr. Day and the weather's pretty good (it's not snowing and I can see the sun). The day has just begun and it feels like a calm, light blue day. I hope everyone's able to enjoy a bright blue day today, too.

How odd...I've had this feeling all afternoon that I forgot to do something, like I needed to "take action". And the weather around here has been dull, gloomy, and cold....

I have semester exams tomorrow so I think it's safe to call it Blue Monday.

I'm in the Sf Bay Area, and the weather's fine. Although I do feel kind of depressed, maybe Blue Monday is true worldwide! Someone take a survey in India or something!

I had a pretty good day. I had almost no history in school, got a fair amount of writing in, and my sisters' friend had come to visit.
