Pennsylvania Weather As Told By Your Favorite Memes

Pennsylvania Weather As Told By Your Favorite Memes

Pennsylvania is not just beautiful, it's my home and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

Pennsylvania is beautiful, there's no denying it. I love the state I was born in and it's definitely my favorite place to live (though I may be biased). We all know it's beautiful, but Pennsylvania has its downsides. One of the biggest downers of being a Pennsylvanian is the unpredictable weather. When we talk about weather in PA, there is always a slight unknown aspect when you talk. Here is PA weather told by your favorite memes:

1. Spring

At first: In the beginning of spring, everything seems great. The flowers are blooming, there are baby animals everywhere, and you can finally dress in less than eskimo clothes.

But then: I mean, it's cool until all the mud gathers from the snow melting. And you see all those cute babies dead on the side of the road.

And finally: How it randomly snows during March and April and you're just here like:

2. Summer

At first: Sumer takes FOREVER to get here. All you want is for classes to be over and beach season to start!

But then: Summer finally gets here and the summer fun begins.

And finally: It gets bad during the middle of July when the humidity kicks in and you are bored AF.

3. Fall

At first: Fall is fucking awesome. The colorful leaves, layering clothes, Halloween (my favorite holiday), hay rides, and so much more. Fall is literally full of awesome.

But then: Everything dies. We see the pretty leaves fall to their deaths, we have to rake them, and worst of all, Halloween passes.

And finally: The air turns bitter because we know Winter is coming. And everyone starts screwing around because people get bored AF in winter and do naughty things.

4. Winter

At first: Winter isn't so bad. It has lights, joy, and you can wear super cute sweaters or dresses with tights. Christmas and Thanksgiving are in the winter time, which makes it even better. It's all pretty great, but deep down inside you KNOW PA weather is a sly bitch.

Winter: I'm not going to snow that much.

Winter to winter: Fucking own them with blizzards.

But then: The first ice storm hits and you're like what.the.fuck.bro? I thought this was gonna be a light winter with a few snow showers. And winter was like "Nah, PA. I was just screwing with you, like I do every year. You people fall for it every time."

And finally: You realize that mother nature gives no fucks and owns you, right as winter is "ending." And your high hopes for peaceful spring? It fades with each foot of snow you shovel away.

The weather may be crazy but I wouldn't have it any other way. I love having all four seasons, even as fucked as they are. The seasons show the beauty that comes with each passing moment and each passing year. Pennsylvania is not just beautiful, it's my home and I wouldn't want to live anywhere else.

New Year, Not New You

January 1st changes nothing.

New Year’s resolutions are obviously made with good intent, but the reality is that many people fail to keep their resolution within a couple of months. People often give up on their goals and claim that they will “try again next year, for real next time.” I personally believe that the easiest way to avoid this type of failure, is to not create new goals for the New Year.

A new year is exciting- the start of the calendar, celebrations, and a new date to write. However, there has always been a tradition where people set goals for themselves to accomplish during the new year. But why? I had a teacher who always said, “If there is something you want to improve in your life, start now.” And I couldn't agree more. Why wait for the first day of the year to change something?

Every year, we hope to change ourselves for the better starting January 1st. Most people are unable to pursue their goals because they often forget their goals, get sidetracked, or just give up. And that’s okay. Goals take time to be accomplished- it definitely does not happen overnight. Trying to change a lot at once is challenging and the goals we set for ourselves should be simple and realistic. I do believe everyone has something they can improve about themselves. Instead of making a list of goals on January 1st, we should periodically set goals throughout the year in order to work on ourselves everyday.

New Year’s does not mean you have to change. Keep being you and find small aspects of your life to improve on everyday because a small change can make a big difference.

Happy New Year!

6 New Year's Resolutions You Can Tell To Get People Off Your Back

When someone asks, you can just throw one of these out there.

Let's face it; New Year's Resolutions have become an over-hyped fad. People at the grocery store or at your job or in class with you want to make small talk and of course, they ask the most basic question of January: "What is your resolution for the New Year?"

Until Valentines Day, you will hear this question asked a lot especially when you see people crowding at the gym the first few weeks of January in hopes to start their doomed fitness journey or the shelves cleaned off at the local pharmacies for teeth whitening strips (seriously, I've seen it).

Yes, some people want to start 2018 with a better smile and make all sorts of promises and then there are others who just want to live their life. As a person who believes in living each day learning from mistakes and striving to change with each lesson gained, I really don't care about new years resolutions. No offense to the people who do.

I want to be able to have something happen to me any day out of the 365 in the year and say "Hey, maybe I could change this and push to be better."

However, I'm 99% sure that the New Years Resolution trend will continue forth for a while to come because it's a fun idea for the holiday. So in order to fall in line with society and act like you believe in resolutions, here are a few resolutions ideas you can tell in order to appease the questioners and what they will most likely think of them.

1. "I'm starting a fitness journey."

What they hear: "I'm going to buy $50 Nike sneakers and spend over a hundred dollars on workout clothes and a gym membership, but I'm only going to for the first few weeks of January. I'll keep paying the membership and tell myself I'll go the next day,"

2. "I'm quitting smoking / a bad habit."

What they hear: "I'm going to quit but then I'm going to get the bill for my textbooks and break down and do it again in stress,"

3. "I'm going to stop texting my ex."

What they hear: "I'm going to stop texting him but then I'm going to get lonely in the middle of the night and break down. Maybe I'll go to the bar and drunk-dial him and act like it was a mistake,"

4. "I'm quitting meat/starting veganism."

What they hear: "I'm going to give up meat because I'm tired of feeling guilty because I'm eating something that had a face. Sadly, I'll see a Chick-Fil-A on the way to class and break down. Maybe I'll just get a kid's meal? Let's be real I'm getting an eight-count nugget meal,"

5. "I'm going to save money."

What they hear: "I'm going to put my direct deposit from my job straight into savings but then I'm going to transfer it into my checking account so I can get Cookout with my friends at 3 a.m."

6. "I'll get better grades."

What they hear: "I'm going to buy a ton of notebooks and pencils and go to class regularly the first two weeks of the semester, but then I'll realize economics is BORING and then skip to stay in and nap or watch Netflix,"

These are some of the most stereotypical resolutions for fellow nonbelievers of the holiday who are pestered with questions. Say these resolutions at your own risk because there are stereotypes associated with some of the more common resolutions. I urge everyone to strive to be better this year. Like, legit. Welcome to 2018 and may the year be in your favor.
