Happy Chinese New Year / Blue Monday

Sad blue dragon is sad

Today is Blue Monday, supposedly the most depressing day of the year.

"The date, a relatively new phenomenon, was determined by Dr. Cliff Arnall in 2005. He used a formula that factored in holiday debts, the hour of sundown, cold gray weather, the amount of time since Christmas had passed and despondence over failing to keep New Year's resolutions." Source

In slightly cheerier news, today is the chinese new year! This is a year of the dragon so red (MY FAVORITE COLOR) and water (MY FAVORITE ELEMENT) are going to be everywhere! Its a drizzly day and I will be going home soon to celebrate with chinese food.

Whether your day is half full or half empty - enjoy it!
