Is it Thursday yet???

*shrugs* It's around that time of year again...

I'm starting to hit my usual "funk" of depression. I have to say, though, this year hasn't been a bad year for it, all things considered. Each year, for some reason, it seems to get easier and easier to deal with. Maybe it's because I have some constructive coping strategies now (yay for the good ol' "trial and error" method). As well, I have very understanding friends. And when they can't understand, they are very supportive anyway. *grins*

For those readers who are just recently tuning in, depression runs in my family. It comes from my mother's side of the family. Sometimes events or stress can trigger it, but nothing can suppress it. I have "episodes" a couple of times during the year. Some are easier than others. Over the years, I have developed strategies to turn these gut-wrenching times into a minor nuisances. These times are not really that horrible (most of the time). No, I am not on medication. I try my hardest to exercise, eat right, get plenty of rest, and chill out from extra-curriculars. One person once asked me why I wouldn't want drugs to "get rid of it". *shakes head* Different strokes for different folks, I suppose. I have seen what it does to loved ones when it doesn't work. And if it did work, I don't know if I would really want it to. Get rid of the depression, and you get rid of who I am. Does that make sense?

*sighs* Anyway, life is pretty good otherwise. hoo_baa_joo and I are blowing off this province in a few measly days, and this will be great. *grins* A change of scenery always helps. Classes are going well. Due to procrastination on both parts, I'm not being formally evaluated by my Administration until after the Break, which is always nice. *WAHOO!* hoo_baa_joo's Dad's birthday is tonight, so I'm looking forward to a decent meal at one of our more classier restaurants. Also, hoo_baa_joo may be leaving for a couple of weeks to do some more training for his job. I'm happy for him, since it will be an awesome opportunity for him. And though it makes me a bit pouty, I might actually sit down and do some work now. *chuckles*

You have now been updated. Until next time....

Life sucks sometimes and that's just it. It tend to deal with my blues (not that they are anywhere close to your blues) with a little Buffy action. Hmmm. That sounded dirty.

Enjoy Toronto. I'll enjoy T-dot. Gross.

Why yes, that did sound dirty. *grins* I'll give you the big T-Dot vs. T-Dot North comparison when I get back.
