The 5 Phrases Every Midwesterner Says During The Winter, At Least Once

It's that time of year again that every Midwesterner dreads: winter.

The time of year where the air is so cold that it hurts your face and we get barricaded in our own homes with snow. Being from the Midwest, we have developed many sayings to describe just how we feel during this season, so I thought I'd share some of those as December is currently in full force.

1. "It wouldn't be so cold out here if it weren't for the darn wind."

Curse you, wind! You make the weather even more bitter than it was before.

2. "Let's go drive around and look at the Christmas lights!"

When it's so cold that we can't even stand taking a walk outside, we will drive around in the evening to look at the Christmas lights around the neighborhood. We will usually do this while drinking a hot beverage because even though we are in our cars, we are still cold.

3. "LOOK! THE SUN!"

Usually, the sun does not hit the Midwest from the months of November-March, so when we get a day that isn't overcast, we are bound to talk about it.

4. "Only six months till summer vacation!"

Only 200 days until we get to hit the beach and be happy again.

5. "Ope, at least we can use the oven to cook now."

One of the few benefits of winter is getting to whip out our very best stew recipes.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
