Thank you winter but if you're not getting my classes canceled then I do not want you.
There are few things more beautiful than the first snow fall of the winter or waking up one morning only to find out you have no class because of snow. There is nothing better than staying inside on those days and doing absolutely nothing but watch movies and eat. It's a dream.
I'm over the winter.
It can go away. Or maybe one of you winter lovers can send me away to a nice tropical island. I miss the sunshine. I miss craving ice cream and then actually getting it because the weather isn't in the negatives. I miss walking to class in the morning with my iced coffee—not an iced body.
Sunburn sounds good right now, well, not good but better than the way my fingers feel when I walk around without gloves on or the way my toes feel when I only wear two pairs of socks instead of three.
"Lauren, stop complaining." You might be saying.
But I am not complaining (well I am but not fully). I am most likely speaking for many others.
I know I'm lucky I get to layer up. Not everyone has what they need to stay warm. Yet, as I scroll through Instagram and see vacation pictures or celebrities and influences basking in the "golden hour" sunshine, I become envious. The winter isn't my cup of tea. Bundling up isn't cute and cozy to me. I prefer shorts and t-shirts or better yet, a swimsuit. I don't really understand the appeal of cold weather.
Basically, I just need warm weather. "Don't rush to summer," you might be saying. Well, I'm not… I am simply saying send me to a tropical island. Thank you.
