17 Things You Know If You Are Always Cold

Yes, I really do need all these blankets.

17 Things You Know If You Are Always Cold

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.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s. Before this time, and throughout it, we often look back at the things we've learned and how they've influenced who we are as people today. Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
