Winters in Florida

5 Reasons Winter In Florida Sucks

Florida is no Winter Wonderland


Many may say, you can't even consider winter in Florida winter, but for someone like me, who can't function below 70 degree weather, winters in Florida suck!

1. Not enough clothes


When it's winter in Florida, you will never feel like you have enough clothes on. Outside is cold, but inside is like a sauna. And wait a few hours, and outside will feel like a sauna too. You're only option is to layer it up, but then you end the day walking around with half your closet in your hand. Which brings me to my next part

2. Bipolar weather changes


Florida is bipolar! You will wake-up in the arctic circle. Walking outside you can barely feel your face. However, you leave work or class after few hours, and it is miraculous summer in December outside.

3. People who swear it's not cold


No matter how realistically cold outside it is, you will always have those people wearing a t shirt, shorts, and sandals who swear it's not cold. It's great for you my friend, but the rest of us who are able to feel temperature changes - we know it's cold outside. So don't tell me it's not that cold outside when you see me wearing three shirts and a hoodie.

4. You become sad and cold


I don't know if anybody else can relate to this, but my overall mood completely changes with the weather. As soon as the switch from summer to Fall begins, I just get so sad and unmotivated. The Summer is always my prime, and I loathe winter for that reason.

5. No snow?!


The only good part about winter any where else is snow, but not Florida. So not only do we have to deal with the frigid cold outside, we also do not get the joys of building snowmen, going sledding, or just plain playing in the snow. Winter in Florida sucks!

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
