Snow Days Are A Waste Of Time

They are nice, but they are also terrible.

Snow Days Are A Waste Of Time

In the past, snow days were always filled with playing in the snow, having hot chocolate, and snuggling up in the warmth. They were a day off from school or work in which you could sleep in as late as you wanted to and spend the day doing whatever you desired.

As a kid, I always hoped and prayed for a snow day because of how awesome they were. But seeing it now that I’m older, I realized how annoying they actually are.

Snow days screw with everything.

Don’t get me wrong; they are awesome. They give you time to hang out and take the day off. Lots of time can be spent watching movies, doing homework and even making lots of yummy food. It’s a good time to spend more time with family and friends.

But in reality, the issue is you can’t do a lot. You can’t really go out to do something fun or even go get groceries. You can’t make up too much of the things you are behind on unless they can be done inside.

Even though snow is pretty, it is super annoying to clean up the snow when trying to shovel or clean off your car to go anywhere. Shoveling takes a long time and it is definitely a pain unless you have people to help, especially when it is heavy.

Having a snow day is super difficult to reschedule events and classwork. School schedules get screwed up and you fall behind at work.

As nice as it is to have a day off, it’s more annoying in the long run. The things that snow days ruin outweigh the fun that comes from them. I definitely will miss all of the fun I used to have during snow days, but now my life is a little bit more work-focused.

It’s just a pain.
