5 Reasons Why I Dislike Summer

5 Reasons Why I Dislike Summer

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

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.

What’s The Deal With Women Wearing Makeup Anyways?

Makeup is a form of empowerment for both men and women it should not be seen as a way to hide insecurities.


Many people do not understand why makeup is worn. Many believe it has to do with insecurities, self-esteem issues, and more positive attention to their appearance. However, makeup is more used for empowerment and creativity for both men and women rather than a mask to cover themselves up.

Makeup has been around since ancient Egypt. It would be used for both men and women of all social statuses. According to Reader's Digest, they used makeup.

Makeup is a skill that is used because people enjoy it or appreciate it, obviously, it is not for everyone, but the people that use makeup, use it as a way of armor to empower themselves and the way they feel. It is no different from any other form of self-care people use for empowerment or to feel stronger.

According to Refinery29, our relationship with makeup has evolved over the years it is no longer seen as a way to impress men, but it is a celebration of oneself.

Using makeup gives people a chance to control the way they look and gives them a way to express themselves in their daily lives.

According to Bustle, "they are taking control of their own image and using makeup in a way that empowers them. And that is extremely cool."

Makeup is not limited to just women; it can be used for men as well. For instance, back in 2016, James Charles was the first male Covergirl. This allows all people to be involved in the empowerment and creativity that makeup gives us.

According to Health, beauty is for everyone, no matter what you look like or who you are that is what makes it so amazing.
