Like, it really sucks.

11 Reasons Why Winter Sucks
The Libertarian Republic

Winter is typically no one's favorite season. I mean, it's pretty, but I'm sure everyone starts to hate it as it starts to hit negative temperatures toward January. Coming from a college student's standpoint, winter only leads to being cooped up and bored. Here's 11 reasons why winter sucks.

1. You fall (a lot)

Winter means ice. Ice means falling. Falling isn't fun. It never is.

2. You feel like you're going to die outside

The windchill and freezing temperatures make you feel like you are going to pass away as soon as you leave your warm home.

3. You are cooped up

Winter leads to being stuck in your home for the most part. No one really wants to adventure into the tundra.

4. You have to start you car early

Nothing is worse than having to adventure outside just to start you car so you don't freeze or ruin your automobile.

5. People forget how to drive

For some reason every winter people forget basic laws of the road. They'll usually try to justify it as snow, but 9/10 times the roads aren't bad.

6. Your house can actually break

When the hardcore negative temperatures hit, you are at risk of pipes literally exploding.

7. January

This one doesn't really need an explanation. After New Year's Day, January is just the coldest, most bitter month.

8. Winter storms

Speaking for myself, and hopefully others, no one actually enjoys a snow storm.

9. Everything's like the dead

All of the vegetation for the most part becomes lifeless and gloomy. It gets old after a while.

10. Black ice

My biggest fear. You'll be going 10 miles an hour and suddenly you're in a ditch.

11. Boredom

Winter just bores people. It's nice and fun around Christmas, but then it loses its charm. There's just nothing to do when it's freezing.

There are plenty of reasons why winter sucks, but these were the first to come to mind. Winter is cool from the warmth of your house, but besides that it just sucks. Luckily it only last four months and then we can finally leave our homes. Just take advantage of your house time by finishing your Netflix queue.

Separation Anxiety in Pets

Separation anxiety in pets is a real thing and recognizing the warning signs is important.


Since March, Covid-19 required most of the world to quarantine in their homes. Majority of people ended up working from home for nearly five months. This meant pet owners were constantly with their pets giving them attention, playing with them, letting them out etc. Therefore, when the world slowly started to open up again and pet owners began returning to normal life work schedules away from the home, pet owners noticed a difference in the way their pet acted. Many pets develop separation anxiety especially during this crazy time when majority people were stuck inside barely leaving the house.

The history of photography is the recount of inventions, scientific discoveries and technical improvements that allowed human beings to capture an image on a photosensitive surface for the first time, using light and certain chemical elements that react with it.

5 Simple Ways To Give Yourself Grace, Especially When Life Gets Hard

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.
