    Seasonal Depression- What to do in the winter?

    Discussion started by Ethreadzny2 - Nov 19, 2003

    Since winters in the east are a bitch. Painting is not an option. And many nights there is nothing to do to occupy the bordom. So what do you do to keep yourself entertained during the winter? I usually go for a walk, but get bored half way through. anybody else get the winter blues, and how do you overcome it.

    S.A.D.S is a major issue most just write off but I know from experneice with family and freinds you need to stay on top of your emotions on the later half of the year.I rack alot durring the winter cause it makes me feel good to be bad:) lame I know but it helps,I go to alot more openings and shows etc.I still bench and streak.

    El Mamerro, some have the luck. I got a sewer infested lake behind my pad. I may have to give it a try. Frate Raper- I hear you man. Its all about keepin up on the emotions, and keeping yourself occupied. My major problem is that I have the attention span of a 4yr old. I need a good set of coloring books for the winter.

    ^I really start to dislike that kid...

    Anyway, i shouldnt be complaining either, i definatelly
    cant go on the beach but the winter around here is mild.
    You have to face cold-cold for 10 days per year max and
    the country has the biggest sunshine ratio in europe so
    you can still take walks, paint and pretty much everything.


    What i hate about winter is that i have to wear all that shit
    and by the time i reach a bar i have to fuckin strip my self
    to tshirt and find a place to stash my gear.

    I tend to pack on more weight, drink more wine and liquor, and drink more coffee. Fireplaces are a plus too. * Oh and movies, I watch about double the amount of movies I do in the summer

    Eth, me and you will have to find some inside spots to hit this winter.

    Not to mention winter shows.

    I don't have a seasonial depression type deal so much as a situational depression. Little things usually make me want to kill. Then semi-serious type deals make me overly depressed.

    Like now, I haven't gone to class in like the past 3 days.

    I do a lot more studio work. I also can still paint outside on warmer days (above freezing), I just have to wear more clothes and gloves. Hard to paint with gloves though, but not impossible by any means. I wont need gloves, though, unless it's below freezing.
    I actually like the cold, but the short days can be the real downer.
    also trips to the south are always good to defrost the body.

    no doubt. My depression comes and go in the winter. Just don't like the feeling of being stranded. However, I can always make it to a show. Cage played last sun at S.O.B's. I was low on the funds, but next time through I will get intouch with you. as far as painting indoor spots, I am always down. And better yet, once this rain passes, we need to make a trip to a few college parties. There is women to be seen.
