On January 29, 2019, The entire state of Alabama shut down due to a potential snowstorm, that was calling for possibly 2-4 inches of snow. However, when everyone woke up the next morning, most places had little to no snow. This called for a lot of disappointed kids and students. While it was a little heartbreaking to wake up to no snow, I'm very thankful for the day off and that it wasn't as bad as it could've been.

Next time you're locked in the house because James Spann says there's going to be snow, Here are some things you can do to occupy your time.

1. Sleep

Take this day off and catch up on the extra Z's that you've been missing while staying up late to finish all that school work.

2. Get ahead on school work

Help your future self out and get a couple assignments ahead. I promise, you'll thank yourself later.

3. Meal Prep for the next few days/weeks

Again, your future self will thank you later.

4. Take a nap

Take that nap that you've wanted to take for weeks but haven't found the time to.

5. Do a workout at home

Make yourself feel a little more productive and exercise. Not only will it make yourself feel better, but it'll make you feel like you accomplished something.

6. Clean your room/apartment/house

Keep that productive streak going and turn on some music, and power clean your house. It'll feel amazing at the end of the day.

7. Cook yourself dinner.

End the long productive day with make yourself a dinner that you feel proud of.

8. Binge watch your favorite Netflix show.

While you're eating the dinner that you cooked for yourself, binge watch your favorite show. You can clean up your kitchen later. Take this time to relax.

9. Go to bed early.

End this long, productive day by clocking out early. After all you've done today, you deserve it!!

Weather And Climate Are Not The Same

Clarification between weather and climate can support awareness for climate change

The difference between weather and climate is the measurement of time we associate with them; weather is related to short-term changes in the atmosphere while climate is the average weather over a long period of time. You could also think of the difference between the two as, "weather is your mood, climate is your personality."

Weather is the balancing of the atmosphere. We associate weather with sunshine, rain, cloud cover, winds, hail, snow, sleet, freezing rain, flooding, blizzards, ice storms, thunderstorms, steady rains from a cold front or warm front, excessive heat, heat waves and more.

Then climate is the way of describing weather patterns over a long period of time. Climate is a way for scientists to visualize the average weather over periods of ten or fifty years. Studying climate is important because it affects many people around the world. Many types of ecosystems could be altered permanently due to rising global temperatures which will affect plants, humans and other animals. "Rising global temperatures are expected to raise sea levels, and change precipitation and other local climate conditions. Changing regional climate could alter forests, crop yields, and water supplies."

Climate change does make the weather more severe, such as hurricanes, flooding, and droughts: the amount of water vapor that the atmosphere can hold increases with temperature. Just because colder months still happen, does not mean that global warming is not presently happening. Though just because there are a few more warm days in November does not completely prove there is global warming either.

This is not to say that climate change is not real because global warming is in fact happening. The planet has been experiencing more severe weather patterns and loss of ice at the poles due to an overall higher average temperature that is only increasing. Greenhouse gas emissions are trapping heat in the earth's atmosphere causing this detrimental rise in temperatures.

Rainy Days Are Absolutely AWFUL, Don't @ Me

A gloomy day is also a doomed day.

58

I am going to lose quite a few friendships after this article is published, but this needs to be said: rainy days suck! I'd rather it be snowing than raining any day.

During rainy days, I literally have no motivation to do anything. It's so dark and gloomy out, and everyone just feels — gray. How do you expect me to get work done if the weather is so bad? Getting up for class daily is already hard enough but on rainy days it's especially difficult and nearly impossible. Every rainy day should be dubbed as days that classes are canceled.

Also, can we talk about how it ruins HAIR? Like, I could have my hair straightened and the moment any part of my head comes in contact with a water droplet, it's over. All of the effort and work that I put into my thick hair is gone, all because of the weather. The frizz is real and I look like I got electrocuted by the time I reach my destination. Humidity plays a huge factor too. The rain could pause but if I walk outside all done up, you best believe my hair will poof up due to the humidity lingering in the air.

When I'm wearing my glasses and it starts pouring, it's so uncomfortable. I hate it when raindrops fill up my glasses and then I am in no control of the fact that I can't see for a second. With the drivers on our campus, that's NOT safe. Ugh, I hate it.

Okay, I am a sucker for keeping my shoes clean, I freaking love my sneakers. If there is unexpected rain and I don't have my rain boots on, I literally will refuse to leave the building until the rain stops or I will Uber everywhere. And even when I am wearing rain boots, they are so uncomfy and walking in them around campus sucks. They don't look cute with any outfit either (at least mine don't). Walking in the rain on campus in general sucks, whether you have an umbrella or raincoat. There are too many people and someone's bound to get poked in the eye by an umbrella.

Rainy days take a TOLL on my mood, too.

Like, I feel just as sad as the weather looks for no apparent reason and start having really dark thoughts about life and my future, or I go to sleep and end up sleeping the entire day. I don't even want to leave my bed. I have things to do and places to be every single day and rainy days will ruin my week whenever they come along.

Rainy days are the literal worst and if you agree, please let me know so we can bond over this.
