Summer and I have a very love/hate relationship. I love summer because I get to just relax and not worry about tests and essays. I hate summer because summer makes everyone I know turn into bronze gods and goddesses, while I'm just sitting here looking like the White Witch from Narnia. All year round I am the exact same color except when the sun burns me to a crisp then I turn 50 shades of red. When winter rolls around most people return to the pale status that I uphold all year round. My fellow all year round pale people, this article is for you because only you can truly the struggle of being actually white as snow.
