i'm somewhat embarrassed to have found this out only after i posted mhm, but i couldn't possibly let the day go by without mentioning that today is blue monday, the sobriquet for the most depressing day of the entire year. the day has been a moveable feast, but this year, it's been determined by people who get off determining such things that january 6th is the absolute low point. so while you might be feeling pretty low at the moment, keep in mind:
- misery loves company and misery will never have as much company as it does at this very moment
- statistically speaking, tomorrow is going to be better.
- the amount of daylight per day, a crucial factor in mood, has already started to increase.
