Feeling down? You’re not alone — this is officially the most depressing day of the year, and there’s even an equation to explain why.
Today, Jan. 16 — the third Monday of the month — is known as Blue Monday, the most depressing day of the year. Linked with post-holiday blues along with cold nights, short days and unpaid credit card bills, today feels like one giant post-holiday hangover
The term Blue Monday was coined by Dr. Cliff Arnall, a psychologist for Cardiff University in London, when he was commissioned in 2005 by PR company Sky Travel to do research on holiday moods as a publicity campaign.
Arnall compiled an equation finding that weather, debt, time, Christmas, and New Year’s resolutions result in low motivational levels, the International Business Times reports.

“To love is to suffer. To avoid suffering one must not love. But then one suffers from not loving. Therefore to love is to suffer, not to love is to suffer. To suffer is to suffer. To be happy is to love. To be happy then is to suffer. But suffering makes one unhappy. Therefore, to be unhappy one must love, or love to suffer, or suffer from too much happiness. I hope you’re getting this down.”

My best friend Sarah and I are psycho and plan our weddings. She has a bf and they have been dating for 5 years and aren’t engaged yet. We all know I am single as shit. We plan hers way harder than we plan mine because she is the closest to actually having a wedding.
She emailed a magazine…
“Love is the answer - but while you’re waiting for the answer sex raises some pretty good questions.”
