The Definitive Signs That You're A Winter Person

Because winter is a lifestyle.

Some people like spring.

And they’re weird.

Some people like summer.

And they’re (usually) the weirdest.

Some people like fall.

And, yeah, they’re weird but on the right track.

Because winter is the best season.

And if you’re a winter person, now is your time to truly live. There’s a few ways to know if you’re really a winter person!

Bring out your ~cold weather~ clothes

Winter has the best fashion of all time. Gone are the summer days of tight-fitting and sweaty shorts and tank tops! In winter, you can cover all your extra holiday weight with loose fitting layers and strategically placed scarves. So drag your cold weather clothes out of your closet and start wearing your beanies with pom-poms on top, cuddly scarves, striped mittens, fuzzy coats, fleece-lined leggings and wool socks.

Prepare for the holidays

Holidays are a vital part of winter, and if you’re a winter person, you probably love the spirit of Thanksgiving, Hanukkah, Christmas and New Years. It’s always fun to hang with family and eat lots of food, especially when you can happily celebrate in climate-controlled houses (looking at you Fourth of July and your hot, sticky outdoorsy-ness).

Get ready for winter weather

Snow. Is. Magical. Especially if you live in the south. You get to roll around in a winter wonderland, you get the day off from work or school and you get to drink hot chocolate and stare out the window like you’re in a movie. It’s a win-win-win.

There’s no sweating (praise the Lord)

In the winter, there’s no sweating. Which is what the Lord intended. But in winter, you never have to sweat. You can walk outside and not have to worry about sweating your makeup off or frizzing your hair or getting sweat stains on your nice, white shirt.

There are no bugs (and it’s a miracle)

In spring and summer, the world crawls with insects. They’re in your house and in your car and on your bed and all over you. It’s a travesty. However, in winter, you don’t have to worry about mosquito bites or stepping in an anthill or getting swarmed by gnats.

The movies and tv shows are great

In the winter, you get action-packed mid-season finales, Christmas specials and big-budget movie premieres. Winter is prime time for media of all kinds and anyone who says otherwise is probably a spring person, so can you really trust them? (The answer is no, by the way). So sit down and enjoy those classic Christmas movies and TV episodes!

Hot drinks are everywhere and they’re amazing

Hot drinks are one of life’s simple pleasures and while it’s never too hot outside to drink hot beverages (don’t listen to the summer people), it’s a lot easier to drink them when it’s cold outside. What’s more, you get those ~seasonal~ drinks like peppermint mocha! So grab your hot drink (whether coffee, hot chocolate, or tea) and let it warm your hands up in the cold!

(Disclaimer: Every season is wonderful, but I just love winter and I’m ready to fight for it.)

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.
