Who turned out the sun? Itís so cold and dark this time of year! I feel like I blink and the whole day has gone by. Blah. Everything is cold and quiet. The world outside my window looks like an old black and white photograph. And worse of all, the day is just going to get shorter and shorter until December 21st!

I need a sunlamp or something. Iím feeling pretty bummed about this whole no-such-thing-as-the-sun thing going on. Maybe Iíll just get some people to go outside with me once in a while. Getting vitamin D from the sun is a great way to fight off the winter blahs. I wonder if Carlo would like to go for a jog.

Thanks to Jax taking care of the garden while I was away, weíre going to have a great Thanksgiving feast this year! There are even enough pumpkins left over to make a ton of great pies for dessert.

I think this year Iíll donate a lot of the food I make to local soup kitchens. Itís easy to forget that not everyone gets to have a big dinner with people they care about this time of year. Maybe I can get a few other cadets or some of the faculty to help out. It feels great to give!
