Today is the Most Depressing Day...

...of the year, according to a UK psychologist, Dr. Cliff Arnall. He's even devised a formula:

The model is:
[W + (D-d)] x TQ
M x NA

The equation is broken down into seven variables: (W) weather, (D) debt, (d) monthly salary, (T) time since Christmas, (Q) time since failed quit attempt, (M) low motivational levels and (NA) the need to take action.

Strangely, this makes me feel better. It's like I'm not completely responsible for my unhappiness, because the cosmos has decreed that today is supposed to be a bummer. I know I'm bound to be happier in a week, when I'll have more than $1.13 in my checking account. ;)

Seriously. This is the WORST part of the year, for all the reasons mentioned... And it's awfully nice to know I'm not alone!!
