There's snow way we can handle it.

5 Struggles Of A Person Who Is Perpetually Cold

So, today the northeast is being slammed with another nor'easter and I bet everyone is excited if they got off work and school. However if you're chronically cold like I am this is probably a rough day for you no matter where you are. Our biggest excitement will be keeping our power today so we don't lose the heat. Here are 5 more struggles of a chronically cold girl.

1. You Need Like 100 Blankets

Even if you had 100 you would still need more. I sleep with three blankets and I need like 200 more because otherwise I'll freeze. Oh, and body parts sticking out of the blanket. Yeah, forget about that foot Cindy, it's frostbitten. You need to cut it off prospector style now.

2. Space Heater? More Like Foot Warmers!

Let's be honest, we need a small army of these to even think about heating our lower body. Then we need one of those things that blasts hot air on you in the grocery store for above where you're sitting to heat the top of your body. Then you need the fire department on speed dial for when things inevitably go south.

3. You Have to Wear Full Winter Gear to Work at Your Desk

Gloves? Check. Snow Suit? Check. Mom's Faux Fur Coat? Check! Plus the other 30 t-shirts, leggings and pants you piled on this morning. You'll probably have to get out your early spring parka too!

4. No Amount of Hot Beverages Can Save You

Even though Starbucks' symbol is literally a Pagan goddess, she can't save you from your coffee turning cold and you having to microwave it so you don't freeze. Even then, it will only placate the frost demons for so long.

5. All Your Joints Hurt

Because the cold is penetrating deep into your soul and unsettling your bones. Or you actually just have arthritis and there's no cartilage to speak of in your joints, so the cold is like an ice pick to the knee.

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out? You've probably done this at least once in your life or at least seen a tweet where someone posted their screenshots with a potential love interest.

Winter Break As Told By 'Friends'

Is a month at home too much to handle?


If you're anything like me, winter break is a much-needed light at the end of the tunnel after a long, stressful semester. Working hard for 15 weeks can really take a toll on a person mentally, physically AND emotionally. It's a nice change of pace to be back at home with your family and friends, but after a couple weeks, it can get, well... boring.
