Loving the Weather

I love Oswego when the weather is nice. The campus is unbelievably beautiful, and so is the lake. I recently realized that I may very possibly have a touch of SAD, which is an acronym for Seasonal Affective Disorder. Although Winter was not the source of the low feelings I’ve been experiencing for the past few months, I cannot deny that it has played a key role in it. I think it affects a lot of us, especially those who do not have cars or readily available methods of transportation. The weather does not permit walking since it is so bad, and you therefore feel trapped in a bubble.

The reason I feel as if that has had a lot to do with the way I have been feeling is because ever since the weather has gotten considerably better, I am much happier. There are other reasons for that, but I know as a fact that that has something to do with it. I know how the cold weather and the snow make me feel. I hate it, and I know how the warm weather and the sun make me feel, and it is the basic opposite.

I know that there aren’t that many photos here, but I have included a couple of photos of the lake. I went down to see the sunset tonight at around 8 PM tonight and could not believe how utterly beautiful the sight was. The water was a purple-pink color, because the color of the setting sun was reflecting on it. It was definitely a sight to see. If I could have that all year round, it would be awesome. I usually get the same argument from people when it comes to this too. “You shouldn’t have picked Oswego then.” However, just about anywhere in New York State is going to snow, and I would say that we actually had a fairly bearable winter this year. The snow, for example, went much earlier than it did in Rome, which is where I live.

I’m not really sure what the point or central message to this blog entry is or if there even is one. I just felt that I’d share some random thoughts. Enjoy the photos!

  1. Over 70 on Friday! If you can believe the forecast!

    Loved the photos, by the way. The spooky stairway one is probably my favorite.
