5 Things I Hate About Winter

Wake Me Up When It's Summer

5 Things I Hate About Winter

There are some people who absolutely love when winter comes around but I am not one of those people. Many see it as a pretty time where they stay in and stay by the fire. I think of it dramatically differently. Here are just a few reasons I hate the winter:

1. Snow

There are so many reasons why I hate the snow. Sure it's pretty, but only when I have nowhere to go, but when I have to drive or walk in it's the worst. I have work to get to on the weekends which is always when it manages to snow the most, making it nerve-wracking for me to get there. Driving in the snow is dangerous and while I try to avoid it at all costs, the snow makes it impossible to go anywhere you are absolutely needed. It also makes me feel very lazy which I resent it for even though that's on me!

2. Being cold all the time

I have an important question: who likes being cold? I love when the a/c makes me cold in summer but I have control to turn it off. There's no off button for winter! I hate walking around on campus freezing during the winter months. I almost always underestimate how truly cold it is so now I always keep a scarf handy.

3. The in between sprint and winter period

Right around now, early march, there is an awkward in-between period where some days is spring with sunshine and warmth, but the next day it's a blizzard. Why can't there be a day it just decides to be warm again for good? I've worn short sleeves recently but today had to clean snow off my car in a winter coat. Mother Nature, help a girl out!

4. Falling down all the time

Winter brings the inevitable: ice. Every winter I slip almost daily because of ice patches. I'm already prone to falling a lot so this doesn't make it any better! Bruises can be found at random and I'll try to figure out what fall recently caused them.

5. Missing the summer

Maybe it's because I'm a summer baby but I love summer so much. Whenever winter comes it reminds me how it's far from summer where I'll be the happiest person. I miss summer always but I miss it more when it's freezing and snowing. I'd rather be outside in the sun going swimming.

The message here is: send some warm weather asap.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

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.
