Yes, I really do need all these blankets.

If you are anything like me, you understand what it is like to be constantly cold. No amount of blankets can warm your body, and no amount of hot beverages can warm your soul. You will never understand people who love winter, and you secretly loathe the people who do not need to wear a sweatshirt on summer evenings to stay warm.

1. You sleep with about 500 blankets

The only acceptable way to sleep is in blanket burrito position, which ensures optimal warmth and comfort.

2. Getting out of bed when it's cold out is nearly impossible

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F6359572534644329541656080601_bed.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=624&h=f4ce04a3de19901486c7c9f4d8a651cd57603fa6cea0366fc669210d9006f243&size=980x&c=1217736306 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F6359572534644329541656080601_bed.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D624%26h%3Df4ce04a3de19901486c7c9f4d8a651cd57603fa6cea0366fc669210d9006f243%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1217736306%22%7D" expand=1]

Getting out of your blanket burrito is a highly unpleasant experience, because as soon as the air hits you, you are sure to start shivering uncontrollably.

3. Your hands are always cold

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F07%2F635956683904085302-1691633285_ice%2520hands.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=523&h=0f0f87a8a38431697de0eac65262ccb6b3d37a55dea1c095e3ed6b1f56ab40b1&size=980x&c=3022205063 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F07%252F635956683904085302-1691633285_ice%252520hands.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D523%26h%3D0f0f87a8a38431697de0eac65262ccb6b3d37a55dea1c095e3ed6b1f56ab40b1%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3022205063%22%7D" expand=1]

To anyone who has to shake or hold my hands: I am sorry. The temperature of my hands is approximately -50 degrees, and I'm fairly certain that coming in contact with my hands is a form of cruel and unusual punishment.

4. The same thing applies to your feet

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F07%2F635956684478035510-831667982_frozen%2520puppy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=885&h=7279d4e755eeeb36e3b6ea7751e55c10579590156e9f36775e8dff869d1c09bc&size=980x&c=1697597347 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F07%252F635956684478035510-831667982_frozen%252520puppy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D885%26h%3D7279d4e755eeeb36e3b6ea7751e55c10579590156e9f36775e8dff869d1c09bc%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1697597347%22%7D" expand=1]

Warm socks and Ugg boots all day every day.

5. Fuzzy socks are your number one accessory

You probably have a whole drawer full of these. They're comfy, colorful, and keep your feet warm. What more could you possibly ask for?

6. Layers are very important

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F07%2F635956684999090303-1815367907_layers.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=850&h=eb77da80dfaa32632909b013e73cc65bc3b5e14e70737f73eb5e00f7ca257ed0&size=980x&c=173047595 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F07%252F635956684999090303-1815367907_layers.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D850%26h%3Deb77da80dfaa32632909b013e73cc65bc3b5e14e70737f73eb5e00f7ca257ed0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D173047595%22%7D" expand=1]

Every time you go out, you wear two shirts, a sweater, a jacket, and bring another sweatshirt (just in case). You can never have too many layers, because you never know when they'll come in handy.

7. You are used to looking like a human marshmallow

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957255491251794-356797124_marshmallow.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=771&h=c090500100cd45c3a3b177e07ee81b4cb65afd000f4cb2d751d1c20742bbc317&size=980x&c=3188557528 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957255491251794-356797124_marshmallow.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D771%26h%3Dc090500100cd45c3a3b177e07ee81b4cb65afd000f4cb2d751d1c20742bbc317%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3188557528%22%7D" expand=1]

Wearing huge winter coats is your style, and you rock it.

8. When the AC is on, you freeze

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957215377578226-2084461734_ac%2520gif.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=965&h=811d108ae191366345580394185904365a37d7b31e5f65ac96424d34d68e131c&size=980x&c=4107248063 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957215377578226-2084461734_ac%252520gif.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D965%26h%3D811d108ae191366345580394185904365a37d7b31e5f65ac96424d34d68e131c%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4107248063%22%7D" expand=1]

Air conditioning: A life saver to many; but a horror to you. There is no reason for the temperature inside to ever be below 75, because who wants to wear seven layers of clothing indoors?

9. Forget about going outside in the snow

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957213919015851-657849154_snow.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=510&h=d5e73a4c2d36e8d3ed71b35a0c8e42615420eaed7bba7e069e92fa287f3f4702&size=980x&c=323442337 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957213919015851-657849154_snow.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D510%26h%3Dd5e73a4c2d36e8d3ed71b35a0c8e42615420eaed7bba7e069e92fa287f3f4702%26size%3D980x%26c%3D323442337%22%7D" expand=1]

Snow is your mortal enemy. As if you weren't cold enough, the universe performs some cruel joke by sending tiny ice pellets flying at your face.

10. Or winter in general

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957214443511509-867039211_cold%2520elf.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=658&h=3ea5fa8574a313e6da7f063c90ef996eb1b67ff6fa4f25e07071d0936a93a9a7&size=980x&c=2886866017 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957214443511509-867039211_cold%252520elf.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D658%26h%3D3ea5fa8574a313e6da7f063c90ef996eb1b67ff6fa4f25e07071d0936a93a9a7%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2886866017%22%7D" expand=1]

Seasons are cool and all, but I'll just stay inside with my 500 blankets until spring.

11. It's normal for your fingertips to be slightly blue

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F63595722416678544750946545_cold%2520anna.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=313&h=26d05e273864858fb1243a5e8ccddfde587cd11c11867086f76739c9c678e73a&size=980x&c=1082442878 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F63595722416678544750946545_cold%252520anna.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D313%26h%3D26d05e273864858fb1243a5e8ccddfde587cd11c11867086f76739c9c678e73a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1082442878%22%7D" expand=1]

Blue tint nail polish? No, just my abnormally cold fingertips doing their thing.

12. And your lips

At this point, it's pretty much a fashion statement. Maybe all us cold folks will start a new trend.

13. And every time you go outside, your cheeks turn bright red

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957223219041397-1842569213_red%2520cheeks.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=758&h=fd0910481a99dc68b714d78b2c15de5ab257f8c75d6076160d0c33775f628504&size=980x&c=1263933734 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957223219041397-1842569213_red%252520cheeks.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D758%26h%3Dfd0910481a99dc68b714d78b2c15de5ab257f8c75d6076160d0c33775f628504%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1263933734%22%7D" expand=1]

No, I am not blushing. My face just does not like cold air, and the cold air does not like my face.

14. It's sweater weather until it's 60 degrees

You will never understand how people wear shorts at the first sign of spring, because you're still bundled up until mid-April.

15. Hot showers are life savers

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957221736403936136777172_hot%2520shower.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=309&h=8cdcce8ec9cbca03e69892cd9c5cb52e0ffb415c5a8c9d13153b64a9614f688f&size=980x&c=1906844307 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957221736403936136777172_hot%252520shower.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D309%26h%3D8cdcce8ec9cbca03e69892cd9c5cb52e0ffb415c5a8c9d13153b64a9614f688f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1906844307%22%7D" expand=1]

The only struggle is deciding whether or not it's worth it to get out of your warm bed to go take one.

16. So are hot beverages

Hot beverages are not just for drinking. Sometimes it's nice to just hold something warm so for a brief instant your hands don't feel like the ice caps of Antartica.

17. And you know no matter what, you will never be warm

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F04%2F08%2F635957224677841517-805047536_still%2520cold.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=117&h=30c6da4adbf49623efb9afbd867c7b02938116377e38f5a7d75e705469de5d81&size=980x&c=63844766 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F04%252F08%252F635957224677841517-805047536_still%252520cold.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D117%26h%3D30c6da4adbf49623efb9afbd867c7b02938116377e38f5a7d75e705469de5d81%26size%3D980x%26c%3D63844766%22%7D" expand=1]

Just embrace it. It's who you are, and that will never change.

Patriotism doesn't end with Independence day

I'm the child of a Marine Veteran. He may have been out of the service by the time I was born, but the Patriotic Pride he lived by has been my family's life line. I grew up with the American Flag hanging in my front porch. My dad has the "Proud to be a Marine" license plate in the front of his car. And red, white, and blue is a completely acceptable way to decorate your living room. But it doesn't end with just that. You need to know why we celebrate freedom.

According to Katy Perry, "Baby You're a Firework." I don't know if she was referring to the Fourth of July when she was referencing fireworks, but this song has allowed this generation to rejoice. The song "Firework" allows people of all ages to appreciate the lyrics, as the song brings forth a positive state of mind. Unfortunately, just like the song, not every knows what the Fourth of July is actually for. Many just assume it is that one time of year you get to spend time barbecuing and see fireworks light up the sky. Even though many are not aware of the American historical significance, this holiday has annually encouraged people to come together happily, which could very much be the importance of it.
