It’s been a gradual process and I’ve succeeded in making myself completely miserable. True, some of it is weather-based. I hate the cold. Unless I am too hot, but that’s not really the case in winter, is it? In addition to the cold, winter in Milwaukee is an experience living without the sun for several months. I can’t imagine what it must be like for people who live even further north.
Anyway, aside from the winter, the other thing that gets me down is loneliness. And not just any kind of loneliness, but the longing for companionship. It’s been a while since I’ve been in a committed relationship, and I really crave it. I feel rather touch hungry, and getting laid probably wouldn’t help. I probably just need a good cuddle.
