It's around this time of year, as winter drags on, that I start to get a bit depressed. Think it's something allot of people in similar climates experience each year. The last few weeks have been pretty hard, seems like the bad luck and problems have been piling up. I try not to take to the internet with my personal problems (as I know they are nothing compared to allot) but life has kind of sucked lately.

other than it being cold, dark and stormy, over the past few weeks allot of my technology has decided to die or start dying(desktop PC,printer,camera and Xbox 360) I caught the zombie flu which really keep me down. My dog developed a tumor on his side, which needed to be removed. and to top all of that off a couple weeks ago my wife rolled and totaled our car on her way to work(she was fine but the car was toast) a few other things here and there(and my tendency to worry like crazy) has me feeling pretty crappy....

But that's how you get stuck in a rut and become unproductive. Anyways it seems like the bad luck might be shifting. While life has been pretty crazy I think things are starting to look up. my dogs tumor was benign , I am finally over the flu, I still got my laptop for all my gaming (which I have been playing too much of lol) and our insurance came back on our car (and using money I had put aside for a nice new PC) was able to get a nice and reliable car for my family. I got my 1/35 outpost pretty much done just needs photos. speaking of photos, I used what I had left over from the our car to get a wayyyyy better camera (seeing how I will not be getting a new PC anytime soon) so this entire weekend I have been running around learning how to use it (expect outpost photos next week) Ohhhh and the Olympics started, I LOVE the Olympics, so hours of that will keep me in a better mood too.

Hoping for spring to come soon but for now I am feeling much better than I had. Are any of you starting to feel the winter blues or have some advice on how to fight it?

I am a 27 year old shut in, from a very rural area of Vermont. I live there with my wonderful wife and fantastic daughter. ohhh and the many many critters that share our property with us. seeings how there is not much to do around here I keep my self busy with my many animals and building models and dioramas.
I am a little bit of a weirdo and I think that shows in my dioramas. I enjoy thinking up weird scenes and then trying to build them.
If anyone has any questions about my work, I am more than happy to try to answer them.
