10 Reasons Why Winter Is The Worst

I'm looking forward to spring.

As fall comes to an end, everyone starts getting excited because the holidays are coming up and winter is approaching. But after that, there really isn't too much to look forward to. Winter is cold, dark, and awful, and despite the holidays, it has no redeemable qualities. Here are ten reasons why winter is, by far, the worst season.

1. It's cold.

The first and the worst. Duh.

2. Cold wind feels like a thousand little knives on your skin.

Wind chill is -10 degrees today? NBD.

3. Dirty snow is gross.

It's pretty when it's falling from the sky or untouched, but after a day or two, it becomes miserable to look at.

4. The outdoors is freezing, but the indoors is like a sauna.

I want to wear a heavy sweater to class, and that keeps me somewhat warm under my jacket. But the second I get inside, I'm sweating like I just ran the New York City Marathon.

5. ...or the indoors is freezing, too.

There's no escape from the cold, really.

6. Your gas bill goes up.

I'm a poor college student and can't afford to have my gas bill go up any more. I guess I'll be living under a pile of blankets with the thermostat on 65 for the next 4 months.

7. Driving conditions are awful after any kind of precipitation


If it rains, you have to deal with ice. If it snows, you have to deal with snow and ice. And then it all turns to slush, which is the worst. It's just so slippery.

And everyone forgets how to drive the second a snowflake hits the ground. Ugh.

8. It gets dark at 4 pm.


Therefore, my day is over, and I have to go to bed at 5. When the sun goes to sleep, so does my motivation.

9. Cabin fever becomes so real, even when it’s not snowing, because you just don’t want to leave your house.


You lose all desire to do anything because you literally cannot stand the thought of going outside.

10. Everyone is sick. Everyone.



Wash your hands, folks.

I love listening to Christmas music just as much as the next person, but when I turn on my local holiday radio station each year, it just feels repetitive. No hate to musicians like Burl Ives or Nat King Cole, but Christmas music needs an update. Personally, I'm tired of the same "Let It Snow" and "Have Yourself A Merry Little Christmas". So plug in your Christmas tree, make some hot cocoa, and listen to these amazing (and updated) holiday songs.

10 Christmas Songs For Your Festive Playlist

I have no shame in starting to feel festive super early.

301

All of these songs are definitely popular. However, I have the strong opinion that having the songs on your Christmas playlist be popular is extremely important. Having everyone sing to the songs is most of the fun; it adds to the festivity of whatever you're doing.

Personally, I love to bake cookies and hum along as I cannot sing and no one should ever hear me. Whatever you do for the holidays, enjoy your festive time and the season!

Every Track On Ariana Grande's 'Positions' Album Ranked

Ariana Grande has achieved major success with her new album and we're ranking every track.

43135

Ariana Grande surprised fans in October, tweeting that her new album was being released. What followed was yet another number one peak on the Billboard 200 albums chart. The album's title track and lead single, "Positions," also hit number one on the Billboard Hot 100 chart.

With "Positions," Grande took a much more light-hearted approach than the confessional nature of its predecessor, "Thank U, Next." It was a welcome and refreshing change of pace. Now that the album has been out for a solid month, it's the perfect time to see how the songs rank.

In the four Christmas' that I have spent with my boyfriend, I have realized one thing: boys are hard to shop for. Each year I have to rack my brain for gift ideas because when I ask my boyfriend what he wants for Christmas, he always says something along the lines of "nothing," which as a girl is hard to fathom since I literally give him a list each year before Black Friday.

After hours each year scouring the internet for the perfect Christmas gifts to get my boyfriend, I have come up with a pretty long and inclusive list. To help those girlfriends going through the same thing, I decided to put together some of the best gifts I have come across.
