Winter, why must you exist?

18 Reasons Why I Hate Winter (As Told By A Winter Hater)
Slow Robot

I have never been a winter person. I don't like snow, sweaters, or being cold. There are literally only a couple of things I like about the winter time (like Christmas) but I could be anywhere in the world and celebrate Christmas... why do I have to celebrate it while being cold???

Since winter is coming, here are just some of the "few" reasons why a winter hater (aka me) HATES winter:


1. You have to be extra careful driving

I already hate driving when it's warm, sunny, and not a cloud in the sky... but add slush, snow, and gloomy skies to the mix and I don't ever want to get in my car... ever.


2. You lose all of your gloves, scarves, and head warmers

What happened to my glove? Let me just retrace all of my steps today to go back and try to find the little straggler that fell out of my pocket probably 5 hours ago.


3. Your nose is always running

Say goodbye to looking cute for your crush across the classroom... all he'll be listening to is your sniffles and seeing drips of mucus coming out of your nostrils


4. You lose all feeling of your nose and ears because of how cold it is

I wish I remembered what it was like to have a nose or ears during the winter, but they're too busy being numb from the below freezing temperatures outside.


5. Your gas/electric bill is way more expensive

I'm in college. I'm poor. Why winter... why????


6. Let's take a stroll in the park....

Lol jk can't even leave the house or you'll turn into an icicle


7. You burn up in all of the buildings from the 15 layers you have on, then when you go outside you are even more cold because you were sweating from burning inside the building

It's a vicious cycle


8. You are always wet..

From snow, from sweat, from rain, from sleet, from your tears....


9. Your skin is always dry

Excuse me while I shed like a freaking snake and itch until I bleed for the next 4 months.


10. Where's the sun?

Miss you baby... come back to me soon.


11. You have so much more laundry

FROM WEARING 15 LAYERS A DAY YOUR LAUNDRY HAMPER GOES FROM 0 to 100 REAL QUICK


12. You have to put on so many layers just to take out the garbage

I just want to get rid of my trash in my shorts and flip flops... but nooo, winter just doesn't allow it


13. You can't just get in your car and leave... you have to defrost and scrape and shovel

Which means getting up 15 minutes earlier. Ugh.


14. Getting out of the shower is almost worse than getting out of bed in the morning

It's just so warm and steamy, then your naked body turns in to a snowman as soon as you step out of the shower


15. The damn static in your hair and on your clothes... there aren't enough dryer sheets in the world to solve that problem

Thanks Downy for trying so hard


16. It's falling season...

Walking is more difficult than ever because of the icy ground.. this is not good for us clumsy people


17. You can't run outside without coming back with frost bite

Do I really have to spend the next 4 months on the treadmill?


18. Everyone is always sick

And for us hypochondriac's that is not something you want to mess with.


I've tried to like you winter, but we just don't get along. Maybe one day I'll understand the loveliness of your snow and your nasty bitterness, but for now I'm just going to sit and mope until the end of March.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
