9 Feelings Everyone Who Loves The Cold And Hates The Heat Will Relate To

I hate hot weather. Like, I really REALLY hate it. While most other people (it seems) thrive and rejoice in the sunshine, I've found it's the so-called "dark and dreary" days of winter that make me come alive. If you're one of those (seemingly rare) people who detest summer and thrive in the spring, then you'll probably relate to at least some, if not all, of the following emotions/thoughts on a spiritual level.

1. You secretly hope the groundhog will see his shadow. 

Okay, so maybe the whole idea of Groundhog Day is just a bunch of silliness and superstition. But seriously, if you love the cold as much as I do, you'll desperately cling to any shred of hope that winter will last just a bit longer – even if your only hope is a furry ground dweller.

2. While others rejoice at the dawn of spring weather, you "welcome" it with despair.

Oh, the number of times I've heard someone say, "Isn't this warm weather we've been having so amazing?!" To which I can only respond meekly, "Actually, I'm more of a cold weather person," then proceed to hang my head in shame at my own words. Yes, I find the spring aesthetic beautiful, but the weather is much too warm for my taste.

3. You dress like it's the dead of winter in the middle of August.

These were my roommate's exact words to me the other day when I dressed in leggings and a sweater. Yes, I know I'll be roasted alive while wearing these clothes in 80-degree weather. But part of winter's appeal to me is the clothing choices. I'll take sweatshirts and beanies over shorts and tank tops any day.

4. When a brief day of cool weather breaks up the summer heat, you come alive.

Just the other night, I stepped outside expecting to be swallowed up by oppressive, sticky heat, only to find myself shivering and saying, "Oh, it's cold." When the weight of my words fully dawned on me, I exclaimed excitedly, "It's COLD!!!" After months of wallowing in the misery of the heat, I found myself feeling lighter and more refreshed than I had in a long time.

5. On the flip side, summer leaves you feeling dead inside.

No, this heat and sun isn't revitalizing and energizing me. It's only making me cranky and exhausted. End of story.

6. Your dream home is somewhere that's cold year-round.

Alaska, anyone? You're open to living pretty much anywhere, as long as the temperatures are chilly to moderate throughout the year. Other excellent choices include Iceland, Greenland, Canada, or maybe even Antarctica (okay, maybe that's a bit extreme, but still).

7. Your other option is to live in the Northern Hemisphere for half the year, and in the Southern Hemisphere for the other half.

I've always wanted to visit Australia and New Zealand. And since the seasons there are on a different timeline than in the North, why not make one of these countries my home when spring and summer roll around in the Northern Hemisphere?

8. You probably don't have much of a tan, if any at all.

It's not that you aren't able to tan. Goodness knows I brown after just a day wearing shorts and a t-shirt out in the sun. But your aversion to the heat leads you to seek out anyplace that's cold: usually, the inside of an air-conditioned building where getting a natural tan is impossible.

9. You legitimately don't understand how anyone is able to look decent on a 90-degree day.

Seriously, my hair turns frizzy after just five minutes of being outside during the summer, and I'm soon enveloped by a sticky layer of sweat that leaves my clothes clinging to me. All of my efforts to look cute and presentable fly out the window almost the moment I set foot outside into the jaws of heat and misery.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
