Winter in Florida is something that only us Floridians truly understand.

It's a complex time of the year for us. While the rest of the world is making snow angels, we're still in a Summer state of mind. Although it is a weird time here in sunshine state, it makes it a little easier knowing that no one is doing this alone. Year after year, we face these few months together.

So for all of you not Florida people, this is is. This is what we go through. You might not feel our pain, but at least you get an idea of our hardships.

1. When the weather drops below 80 degrees.

2. Getting out of bed for your 8 a.m. when it's 70 degrees is impossible.

3. Your relatives from colder states make fun of you for being so cold.

4. You get ready for the day in a long sleeve shirt, but at noon it's back to 90 degrees and you might die.

5. Contemplating getting your coffee hot because it's November (even though it's hot outside).

6. Hearing Christmas music about "white Christmases."

7. Wondering what it's like to have class get canceled because it's a snow day.

8. Trying to get into the Christmas spirit, even though you were just in a swimsuit last week.

9. Everyone in your class says they've never seen snow.

10. Wishing that you could build a snowman.

11. When the one cold day of the year falls on the same day you planned on going to the beach.

12. Taking pictures with your friends, pretending you're all cozy in the 70-degree weather.

13. Seeing people decorate their palm trees in their yards with lights.

14. Forgetting what it's like to see your breath in the cold.

15. Realizing how thankful you are for Florida, regardless of your love/hate relationship with the Winter season.

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.
