Here are some reasons why summer is not my favorite season.

5 Reasons Why I Dislike Summer

Most of my friends and family really love summer. I am not a part of that group. It is not that I hate summer, I'd just rather it be fall or winter. Of course there are many things you can do in Summer that is not an option during the fall and winter, but it also goes the same way for any other season. Because summer is a beloved season for some, here is a list of why I dislike summer:

1. The Heat

I hate being hot. I am always hot as it is, even in the fall and winter. I don't like feeling even hotter than normal. Plus, I live in Tennessee, so I not only have to deal with the heat, but also the humidity. It makes me feel super gross and I feel like I need to shower after I've only been outside for 10 minutes.

2. Makeup Mishaps

I like wearing a full face of makeup sometimes, but in summer that is awfully hard to do. It is not that my makeup gets ruined because of the heat. I use setting powder, so if I do decide to wear makeup, it makes me feel super hot and disgusting. I wore makeup out to a 4th of July event and I was continuously blotting my face to make sure my sweat wasn't dripping everywhere. The makeup makes it feel even hotter outside than it actually is. I was so happy to finally go home and let my face feel the cool air conditioning after I washed my face.

3. Hair

I have naturally curly, frizzy hair. I love my hair, but I also hate my hair (oh, the woes of being a female). If my hair is naturally frizzy, you can imagine what happens when the humidity gets to it. I have huge hair in the summer (Dolly Parton may disagree with me on it being a bad thing).The volume of my hair isn't necessarily a bad thing, it's the problem that I cannot control my frizz. I put product in my hair for this reason and sometimes it still does not help.

4. What is Tanning?

I have semi-fair skin, which makes summer a hard time for me. I do not tan, but burn. If I want to sit outside for a long time in the sun, I must remember to wear sunscreen or I will resemble a lobster in no time. This summer I have hardly been outside for long periods of time, so I haven't burned...yet. This sounds great, right? The problem is that now that I'm not burning, I'm also not tanning, so I am extremely pale. I would love to be able to bronze it up in the Summer, but it's not in the cards for me.

5. The Smell

I hope most of you are smart and wear deodorant and shower in the summer, but there are some who have yet to get the memo. Sometimes it is hard to avoid, especially if you are hanging in a crowded area outside or in a place with no air conditioning. I completely understand that sometimes you are so hot that the deodorant just can't uphold for so long, before it gets that old deodorant smell. I just wish people would realize that because it is so hot in the summer, that taking showers and maintaining your hygiene is vital and honestly just a nice thing to do for the sake of the people around you.

I know this may seem like I am just complaining, but I do like some aspects of summer: swimming, the smell of sunscreen, the way my hair gets lighter, and the possibility of adventure. With that being said, I just prefer fall or winter over summer. Tell me why you like or dislike summer in the comments below! If summer is your favorite season, tell me why.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
