The Stages Of Transitioning From Summer To Winter

The Stages Of Transitioning From Summer To Winter

Forever wishing for whatever season you aren't in.

If you live in a state where you get all four seasons, sometimes all four within a week, you know the struggle of transitioning between one extreme to the next. At one point you’re dying for the cold and the next you’re dying for the heat, and a good in-between never lasts for long. Here are the stages of transitioning from summer to winter:


This 90-degree weather has GOT TO GO. I can feel myself melting. There is no relief anywhere. Is it normal to sweat this much? I think I lost 20 pounds just from sweating.

2. Ahhh this is more like it

When the temperature drops to 75 degrees and you can comfortably wear pants again. This is perfect. Not too hot, not too cold. Can it stay like this forever?

3. Okay a little chilly, but it's fine

Okay, 65 is a little chilly, but nothing I can’t handle. I can finally bust out all of my cute fall clothes. FLANNEL SEASON!

4. This sucks

Why did I ever want it to be colder? This 50 degrees and raining crap is a no from me. I think it’s about time to break out the parka.

5. Wow, this REALLY sucks.

I’m moving someplace warm and tropical when I’m older so I never have to put up with this again. When it drops below 50 I am not a happy camper. I can feel the cold in my bones.

6. Can I hibernate?

WHY. IS. WINTER. SO. LONG. I’m lucky if I get a day above 0 degrees. Can I just abandon all my responsibilities and hibernate for the winter? I mean, bears get to do it and I don’t think it’s fair that if I wanted to it’s “socially unacceptable.”


Okay, I’m fed up. This negative windchill is not okay. I can feel the cold in my bones even when I go inside. I’m wearing 5 layers of clothing 24/7.

8. Summer, please come back.

I’m longing for the 90 degree days again, summer where are you? Why does winter feel like it lasts ten times longer than summer does?

To The Girl Who Can't Wait For Fall

Fall is overrated.


I don't hate fall. I want to make that very clear. As long as it's not too hot and not too cold, the weather is actually pretty enjoyable. I do love to watch the leaves change color and I like watching certain scary(ish) movies close to Halloween. But here's the thing: It's still summer!

Around this time of year, I start seeing posts about how fall is coming soon and I just don't get the hype. Personally, I like to savor every remaining ounce of summer that I can before switching gears into cold weather mode. So last year when Starbucks rolled out the pumpkin spice lattes before August was even over, I was a little annoyed.

As I said earlier, I just don't understand why people get so hyped up about the fall season. Yes, summer can be hot and miserable, but fall is the time of year when everything seems to get dark and gloomy. It rains a lot and starts to get dark earlier. Sure, you can throw on a sweater and curl up by the fire, but that doesn't compare to being able to bask in the sunshine all day.

Fall is nice when it comes around, but there's no need to rush into the next season. Once fall is over, we go into the holiday season, and after that, we're back into the dead of winter. As much as I look forward to these things, I think it's important to appreciate each season for what it has to offer, and not constantly anticipate what's coming next.
