Mellau Snowboarding Trip – Monthly Happiness Report – December, 2015

Another week in relationship hell… This monthly happiness report would have been an exact replica of the previous month, had I not gone on a fantastic snowboarding trip to Mellau, Austria.

According to the internet, this saying means that many difficult things always happen at the same time. I was in a very challenging long distance relationship in November, 2015. My relationship was constantly disrupted by arguments, and the lows far outweighed the highs. Needless to say, I was feeling pretty unhappy. It was raining…
