It seems that all sorts of annoying crap happens in mid-january, on top of the short days and creeping cold. It's pretty annoying, since my life is pretty much amazing by objective standards - I have a new job, new house, make plenty of money, my only debt is my house, I have friends and no enemies - and I still feel like it's all worthless and I need to drop it all and move on. So come up with ideas to ward off SAD for me. I've already planned my garden and done what work I can, I have a project boat and project car, and a cat. Oh and you guys thinking about suicide or other dumb things - it's just the weather. Promise yourself you'll wait till you see green leaves, then re-evaluate.
