Waiting for Autumn

Well, summer is ending and I definitely can see autumn kicking in. It’s been dark in the morning and cloudy rainy skies throughout the day lately. I’m feeling a familiar sense of blues sneaking up on me. I think after this week we’re getting a couple more weeks of sunny summer weather before autumn officially kicks in, and I’m honestly very excited for it to start. I can’t stand the heat despite growing up in Thailand in my childhood, sweating stinks(literally)!

I remember when I used to hate the rain and cloudy days with a passion but now I think I’m going to be fine with it. I remember when I was 16 I felt sad all the time and I had no idea why. Then a couple years later I didn’t realize that my sadness was a thing called SAD (Seasonal Affective Disorder). Something funny I found from the SAD wiki page is this quote

“One study looked at whether some people could be predisposed to SAD based on personality traits. Correlations between certain personality traits, higher levels of neuroticism, agreeableness, openness, and an avoidance-oriented coping style, appeared to be common in those with SAD”

The traits they describe sure sounds like someone I know very well lol ☚(*´∀`☚). So the phenomenon I was experiencing back then was probably what people call SAD.

Just a random thought of the day.
