Fighting the February Factor is the new awesome

I am glad it is finally the last day of this month. February is my least favorite month of the year, because without fail, it seems to be the time of year for me that everything feels a little out of sorts. My friends in college and I named it the February Factor - if ever there is a time of year to feel a little stressed, depressed, or just kind of not yourself, it seems to be February.

I can't quite figure out what brings it about every year. It is probably a combo of the after-holiday slump, prolonged chilly winter weather, all those breakups right after the holidays and before valentines day, realizing that you haven't kept any of your new years resolutions yet, or some wacky yearly alignment of stars.

I am proud to say that I handled the February Factor better than some people this year ...


still. good riddance, February. I am ready to really start 2007.

    I the year started off just TOO strong, they next few months were bound to be a let down.

    I say, bring on Spring.

    I love Feb. I turned 28, had a great V-Day and got engaged. What could better?

    I agree. I never quite understood why I hate Jan and Feb until I read this blog post. Thank you for showing me the light.
    DO you think this means that tomorrow (march 1)I will actually work out and eat right?

    i heart february (because it has my birthday in it) but other than that it has been a really dumpy month!

    what's not to love? feb is short, it gives you a reason to feel lonely, the weather is cold, and wait a minute. my list isn't looking so good anymore.

    february made me realize that every month should have 4 weeks which would make 13 total months + new years day. perfect.
