Today has been declared the most depressing day of the year. A psychologist named Cliff Arnall bases this on several factors, including how bad the weather is at this time of year, the amount of debt accumulated over the holidays minus how much is paid off, the time since the holidays, the amount of time passed since New Year’s resolutions have gone south, and our general motivation levels.
It's funny because I was planning on staying home today (I just didn't feel like going in), but I thought, "What the hell? I'll take a shower and see how I feel". Needless to say, I'm at work now, but I was awfully tempted to just stay home.
