When it snows, it can either be a wonderfully magical time of the year or a hellish nightmare of being stuck at home for days on end. Either way, everyone has something to say about it, an opinion. Here are several things that people undoubtedly think when snow starts to fly:

"Oh, how pretty and tranquil!"

Giphy

When you first wake up and see snow, all you can think about is how pretty it looks outside. The whole world is blanketed and it couldn't look more calming and serene.

"Snow day?"

Giphy

Do you remember putting ice in every toilet in your house, going to bed with your PJs inside out and backwards, and putting a spoon under your pillow before bed? The good ole' wise tales that kids where convinced would guarantee them a snow day when there was snow in the forecast. In all honestly, snow days were very exciting as a kid whether or not those tricks helped. Snow days made for a whole day of watching movies, wearing PJs all day, and sipping on hot chocolate.

"'Guess I have to start shoveling snow and clearing the sidewalks."

Giphy

Shoveling snow is arguably one of the downfalls to it snowing. Shoveling snow is always a pain and is definitely a workout if you get more than a couple inches.

"Geez, it's cold outside."

Giphy

Snow and cold temperatures are basically synonymous so bundle up if you are heading outside for some fun in the snow!

"Hot chocolate sounds delicious right now!"

Giphy

Hot chocolate always tastes better when you come inside after being outside while it's snowing. It's a staple anytime it snows.

"I can't get over how pretty the snow is."

Giphy

Winter time can be so beautiful especially when it snows. The trees, snow covered fences, and icicles make for some great pictures!

"At what age is it acceptable to stop going sledding?"

Giphy

Asking for a friend here, when is it too old to go snowing? I vote never because sledding is such a fun time! Grab a sled and your pals no matter their age and find the biggest hill around for a good time on a snow day!

"I want it to snow everyday!"

Giphy

Snowball fights and eating snowflakes, along with all the cool things that snow brings, it's no matter that snow days are always desired!

"I want to move somewhere that it snows all the time!"

Giphy

Head to where polar bears live and you'll have your wish of snow all the time granted!

"What's a good book I can curl up by the fireplace and read?"

Giphy

Snow days are the best days to grab some fuzzy sock, a soft blanket, and a good book to sit by a fire and read.

The Birthplace of Basketball

The NBA Playoffs are here. It’s kind of funny that my history kind of started out in the same place that basketball’s did too.

Basketball was originally created by James Naismith, a Presbyterian minister who taught P.E. at YMCA in Springfield, Massachusetts. He invented the new game to keep the young men occupied inside during the winter. Borrowing ideas from rugby and a game he used to play as a boy, “duck on the rock”, he thought of nailing up boxes to throw a ball into. He couldn’t find boxes so he used peach baskets instead. The rest of the rules he made up in about an hour.

I Met You At The Wrong Time

At least, that's what I keep telling myself.

I met you when I was in middle school and I thought boys still had cooties. I wore flared jeans, Aeropostale shirts, and had the dorkiest braces ever. I cared about what other people thought of me, and I definitely cared a lot about what you thought, too. You were older, and your friends made fun of me when I talked to you. I pretended it didn’t bother me, but it did. I sat two rows in front of you in class, and constantly tried to think of reasons to talk to you. Your hair was a curly mess. It still is. You graduated from middle school a year before me, and I missed you. I don’t think you even knew my name.

Why I Don't Believe In Religion

I used to be comfortable with religion, but now I'm uncomfortable.

I’m not one of those people who doesn’t believe in God because“if there was a God, why would He let such horrible things happen?” Saying that because sometimes bad things happen, there must be no benevolent higher power, to me, makes about as much sense as saying that because sometimes it gets dark, there must be no light.
