Even though most people I know would say summer is their favorite season, a lot of people, myself included, would disagree with that.
Now, summer is great and all. You don't have to wear excessive layers, worry about slipping on ice and you can eat all the ice cream and smores your heart desires, among many other perks. However, summer can be pretty problematic. Here are the top reasons.
All I want to do is go cool off in the pool and enjoy the sunshine. But if I do this for too long, even if it doesn't seem very long, I'll get burnt to a crisp. Not only does it hurt now, but it'll continue to hurt for the next few days, at which point my skin will be all pealy. Gross.
2. Bugs. Everywhere.
Ah yes, summer. The time where all the bugs come out from hiding and into, well, literally everywhere. You can't enjoy a summer night without falling victim to the mosquitos. You can't do anything around flowers without risking a bee sting. You can't even sit inside without seeing at least a fly. Bugs are gross, sometimes they hurt and I'm just not a fan.
Alright, so maybe your skin works really well with aloe and bug spray and the first two don't really bother you. What you can't really escape from outside is the humidity. You go outside and your skin feels sticky and gross. If you're like me, your hair will do its own crazy thing and look disgusting too. To make it even better, sometimes it's so gross out you can't breathe. That just sounds like torture, which it is.
4. Everything is 1,000 degrees.
Even if it's not particularly humid that day, going outside still hurts. You want to go on a nice walk and get some exercise in? Okay, but you'll probably melt. Do you have to go somewhere or just want to take a drive? Well even that's risky since the seats and seatbelt might burn you. The only safe haven is inside with the A.C. on high blast.
Don't get me wrong, I like summer, I do. And I like the heat more than I like the cold, which I hate with a fiery passion. It's just sometimes heat and bugs get the best of you and your skin burning makes everything worse. Oh well, the suffering is just an excuse to eat more ice cream (until it melts).
