Thawing Out

This winter was a strange one for me. I just had no motivation to do anything but go to work and come home. People would always try to make plans with me but I'd just cancel, or in some cases it was just to late to go out. I used to get extremely terrible seasonal depression when I was younger, but this didn't feel like that. It could have been slight seasonal depression, but I just didn't want to do anything. I wasn't homesick either. It felt more like I wanted to recover from something. As the days are getting longer and the temperature getting higher I feel my mood changing.

Last Saturday was just what I needed to kick start my spring. I finally felt more motivated to go out after 7 pm, and more willing to meet with people. Sorry to any of those people who want to meet up! It's not you, it's me! I met Elizabeth around 4 because we wanted to get together and she's always willing to go on photo hunts with me. I had intentions of taking photos of an old building only to find that it was covered in some kind of tarp, so the only photo I managed to get was the one above. We walked a bit when I started to get hungry so we decided to get dinner. We chose Cafe Barashki because neither of us had been there since my birthday, and they have really great food.. During dinner my friend called me to see if I wanted to meet at a pub that night. I haven't seen her since August, so I agreed to go. After dinner Elizabeth and I walked home where I waited a little bit to go back out. It was so great to see my friend, Elmira, and meet her family. I even got to meet another friend who has constantly been inviting me to the pub, but I've always been to tired to go. The night starts so late here in Russia, and I'm seriously an old women who likes to be in bed by 10 pm.

All in all, it was a good weekend to recharge and get me ready for spring. How was your weekend? Any plans this weekend?

  1. Same here! I'm so happy that the days are getting a little bit longer now! I can't wait until warmer, sunnier weather!

    1. The sun helps so much! But it's deceiving too because it looks warm and then you go outside it's only 20F degrees!

  2. Feeling the exact same way. Definitely getting out more and enjoying the weather... although it's before 10 and I'm already in bed so I'm an old lady too.

  3. I know what you mean about feeling like an old lady. I used to stay up all night, no issue, but now if I am not in bed by 9pm I feel like something is wrong. haha
