Everyone has some form of the blues around the holidays -- it's inevitable. I try to combat it by making plans for the new year. In addition to the usual diet and exercie thing (I want to start jogging again), I write down projects I want to work on, places I want to submit my writing to (publishers and agents) and send out a boatload of resumes to agencies looking for graphic designers. I try to see some films (The Golden Compass and Beowulf are on my list this year) and watch the usual holiday films at home. I have an extensive library of films and I always have something new on hand. The holidays come very fast (it seems) every year and just as soon they are gone. It helps to have some goals to aim for after the holiday lag sets in.
