I prefer winter.

I was born in a blizzard and that has become the base of my claim of why I prefer winter to every other season. Sure, I love fall, I enjoy the first part of spring but honestly I hate summer. I get angry when the summer heat is blazing even though I know that I have no control over the weather circumstances. Living in Kentucky, we get winter extremes and we get summer extremes. You may think that I'm crazy for choosing negative below weather over 98 degrees with 100% humidity but we can agree to disagree. Yeah, of course there are nice aspects about the summer heat that come with the season. I love swimming as much as you do, people. But remember there are indoor pools. I can get my fix in the winter whenever I please but I can't stand outside on a summer day and enjoy a nice hot cup of hot chocolate without feeling like my skin is going to melt off in the summer. These activities are simply more enjoyable in the cooler and colder weather.

1. Walking to class/work.

Can we all go ahead and agree that there is nothing as terrible as making the journey to and from school/work in the heat. You have to plan on your outfit to make sure you don't look like a drowned rat by the time you get to where you are going. In the winter you get to throw on whatever you want and go out the door. You can always add more layers and be warm but there is only so much that you can take off.

2. Going to the gym.

Going to the gym can and is a task. But going to the gym when it is burning up outside is a whole other story. Yes, I know that maybe it is easier to make yourself go when it is pretty outside than on gray days but the sun shines in the winter too. Plus when you go outside it is cool and refreshing opposed to suffocatingly hot.

3. Hot drinks.

I love iced coffee as much as the next person but sometimes you just want it hot. But for me it is seriously impossible to drink any hot drink when it is above 60 outside.

4. Fashion.

We all know that fall and winter fashion is the best. We will just leave that at that.

5. Football.

Tailgating and attending a football game is always a blast but it is draining when you are sweating as much as the players, well at least you think you are when you really can't imagine how hot they are. All in all football is better when its cold/cool.

6. Holidays.

The 4th of July is a blast. I will not even begin to deny that fact. But Halloween, Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Years all come in the cool months.


Have you seen the fall/winter booties that are out? We all know we would rather wear a cute boot over a wedge.

8. Movies.

There is just something special about cuddling up with a big warm blanket and watching movies on a cold day. It is one of those blissful things that few things can compare.

9. Food.

Hearty soups and chilis that warm your soul are perfect on a cool day. Yeah these foods are always delicious but they are the best with snow on the ground.

10. Television.

Most of your favorite shows are finally restarting during these seasons so less time watching reruns on Hulu.

Freshly popped buttered popcorn in your lap and a glass full of crisp Coca-Cola is at your side. All the lights are turned off and you are tucked into a cozy blanket. You have the whole day off and no responsibilities besides refilling your popcorn bucket. Now all you have to do is decide on what movie to watch, but you know one movie will not fulfill your need of relaxing all day. A movie marathon is the only answer to your problem. In case you did not know what movie series to start with, try a few of these.

What was usually buried at the bottom of my purse has now become a pocket essential — and I know I'm not alone in that.

It used to be something I'd use if I happened to be at a restaurant that ran out of soap in their bathroom, but now it's almost more essential to have on-hand at all times than my cell phone.

The decision-makers of Yale's law students have invested in therapy dog sessions in order to reduce stress. In 2011, Yale Law Library had a sign-out sheet for their certified library dog. The 30-minute sessions were equipped with unconditional, stress-busting puppy love.

Law Librarian Blair Kauffman stated that the free, three-day pilot pet therapy program at Yale Law Library launched as "a positive addition to current services offered by the library."

I have been working at Dunkin' Donuts for over two years, and during this time, I have progressed from regular crew member to crew coach, and finally, to shift leader. Among my great skills involving the job is my ability to deal with stressful situations, including awful customers. My boss has continuously pointed out the fact that I am able to handle these people with grace and kindness. She herself often finds that she gets snippy with rude customers, but somehow I am able to keep a straight face through these tough times.

Let's be real here — sometimes essential oils and acknowledging all five senses (touch, see, hear, smell, taste) just don't cut it when you need to cope. It's those days when you have so much rage that you don't even know what to do with yourself, or those days when you physically cannot stop crying because of the most suffocating sadness, or all those other days when you are craving healthy coping mechanisms that actually work.

But before I let you in, we need to continue being real. I hope you are comforted with the knowledge that before I uncovered (or, even wanted to uncover) healthy mechanisms, I also went through my drought of horrible coping mechanisms. I have, and sometimes continue, to fall short of genuinely trying to help myself. It takes a lot of courage, and energy, to genuinely try and help yourself.
