I've been feeling down in the dumps lately. It's only late October and usually I don't start feeling down until November, every single year! 

If I am in school, I usually have a hard time finding motivation to study. If I am at work, I have the feeling that I want to quit. If I am lonely, I would feel extra lonely. And it happens usually in November. I've noticed this pattern about myself since I was in my early 20s. I don't know if it's the weather change or if the holidays are coming up and I am anticipating something greater but I am self-aware of it. 

Right now I am losing motivation to clean at home. I am a stay at home mom and my 20 month old baby is taking a nap after coming home from preschool. 

I also feel like people around me are a lot more gloomier around this time of year. So maybe it's just not happening to me but it's happening to everyone else but they are not aware of it?
