so i think i’m starting to get ‘cabin fever’. no, i have it. and i’m fairly certain that my students do too — we’re all a bit crazy around this time of year.
personally i can’t take another day of cold grey clouds, bleeeeeeeeh. i know spring is coming…eventually, but it just can’t get here fast enough. i don’t even really remember what a sunny day looks or feels like. even though some snow continues to drift down from the low-hanging greyness above, it doesn’t last long so it’s pretty pointless. it’s just ugly and grey and cold. and no i’m not whining…fine, maybe i am.
but for those of you who might also be living alone in a ukrainian village and trying to get through these dreary winter days here are some tips to help you through it:
what to do when you have cabin fever:
1.) look at photos of green or warm places and wish you were there.
2.) practice your push-up and plank form. then eat some chocolate.
3.) challenge yourself to a “how many cups of tea can you drink in a minute” contest.
4.) contemplate how new zealanders pronounce the word “deck”.
5.) cook something and narrate your own cooking show!
6.) dance party for one? yes, please.
7.) brush-up on your karaoke skills (no one’s judging you…except maybe your neighbors).
8.) goof around on photobooth and take photos to document your slow transition into crazyville.
9.) do anything but look up the weather forecast.
9.) and of course, read this blog.
