9 Reasons Why Winter Sucks

Am I the only one who actually despises the winter? Every year, as the last of the fall leaves float off the barren branches and form brown piles on the curbs, I dread the feeling of the oncoming winter chill. And the more and more I dread the winter each year, the worse it gets, as if it knows I hate it so much. Here's 9 reasons why the winter sucks.

1. The cold

The #1 problem with the winter: it's goddamn freezing. And ask anyone who knows me, I HATE THE COLD. I'm the girl who brings a sweatshirt with her everywhere she goes, even in the middle of August. So to have to live in a perpetual state of freezing cold air for months at a time is terrible. My skin dries out, my nose is always running, my teeth chatter so hard I nearly chop off my tongue. It's terrible.

2. The snow

Don't get me wrong, the first snowfall of the season is exciting. And it's fun and all if things actually get canceled or delayed because of the weather. But after December, the snow is just a huge pain in the ass. It's messy and honestly quite dangerous to travel in. Plus, it makes a huge mess in the house. Honestly, snow just isn't fun anymore when you're not a kid.

3. It lasts forever

Am I the only one who starts wearing her spring clothes March 1st? If you ask me, the winter drags on for the longest out of all the seasons. You can still feel it's chill all the way to April, when all I want is flowers blooming and bunnies hopping around hiding eggs. It's unnecessary.

4. Layers on layers on layers

Like I said before, I hate the cold and I always bring extra clothes to stay warm. But when I wear a million layers of clothing to stay warm outside, the second you go inside anywhere it's like a sauna! Then you have to strip off five layers of coats, sweaters and scarves, and you have a whole damn clothing store you have to carry around with you.

5. How early it gets dark

I can't get anything done when it's pitch black out at 5 pm. It just makes you feel exhausted and lazy and like you should be going to bed. Winter is definitely the laziest time of the year.

6. Lack of activities

With the freezing temperatures and the darkness, no one wants to leave their bed in the winter for anything. And, along with the layers and warm clothing, no one wants to get dressed up in cute outfits to even go out and get one drink. And don't even try to suggest sledding or ice skating or something "winter themed" to me.

7. Static

Winter clothes = static. After I take off my winter coat, my scarf, my hat and my gloves, my hair is sticking up so much I feel like a science experiment.

8. Wet boots in my house

I HATE when I'm wearing my warm fuzzy socks and I step in a puddle of melted snow from my boots. And no matter how much you wipe your feet on the mat or shake off your shoes before you go inside, it's always there. Mocking you with it's wetness.

9. December is the only good month

After the holidays, winter is so unnecessary. It's fine for the first weeks, but once January starts it just gets colder and colder. And there's nothing to look forward to until the freezing cold starts to thaw out in April. It's just 4 months of desperate waiting for warmth in the dark.

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.

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.
