Winters make the day seem shorter and the grey skies tend to make people easily depressed. I never really pictured myself wanting to live in a place like Buffalo, especially since I hail from a country well-known for its tropical climate. Yet, I’ve been here for five years already. It’s here that I realized that it’s commonplace for people to take anti-depression pills. I wonder if there are more pill-poppers here than in the tropical climates. Since I wouldn’t advocate taking mood altering drugs, I’m glad to find alternative methods of altering unhappiness. Perhaps this would be the better remedy though: If you can’t take it, move to warmer climates like the West Coast!
