Hey! I definitely think we can help each other! :D I went to school in the east coast, and SAD got me way, way, way down, so I understand where you're coming from. No more cold, dark, and dreary climates for me!
I graduated last june, so free gym is not an option.... Though with the amount of times I end up going to the local gym, I'm thinking maybe it's better to just cancel my membership. *g*
