According to countless articles I read today, this formula is meant to explain the reason for today, Blue Monday, being the most depressing day of the year:
weather=W, debt=d, time since Christmas=T, time since failing our new year’s resolutions=Q, low motivational levels=M and the feeling of a need to take action=Na. ‘D’ is not defined, but I think it stands for the number of days I’ve been out of the country, and they feel like a lot.
On a more positive note, classes started. Finally. Then again, I have no Monday classes, which means classes start tomorrow. Oh wait, and did I mention that I only have class on Tuesday and Thursday? Because I do. And I just purchased a ticket to visit Stratford-upon-Avon in two weeks’ time, to hang out with the Bard’s ghost.
Unfortunately, I still agree with Karen Carpenter. Some Mondays get me down, and my formula for happiness (classes two times a week + weekend trip + being in London + friends) can’t seem to make the negatives positive. So I guess for now, I equal zero.
