Sooo it is cold outside. Literally I am looking at the weather report right now and it says that it feels like 9 degrees outside. And we all scream and plea “WHYYY” I have never had the urge to skip more classes in my life, not because of the class itself but because of HOW COLD it is! Seriously though, that should be reason enough to cancel classes.
Anywho, I thought it would be most convenient of me to provide a semi-sarcastic, semi-realtalk on how to stay warm.
1. Don’t go outside. Seriously, avoid it at all costs. Just hibernate all winter… like a bear. If that was socially, financially, and spiritually acceptable I think I might consider. I would say goodbye to all my loved ones and bam you wouldn’t see me until March.
2. Wear layers. I hope for most of you this is an immediate “duh” however according to some people on this campus and other college campuses around the country I might think differently. I mean seriously! Flip flops? And you think you are done with the “bro tank” phase once winter hits, but believe me you are not. I guess muscle men don’t get cold? Are “muscle men” a thing?
3. Sometimes you have to sacrifice. I would like to think I am a girl who likes to dress “cute.” I mean I tend to be the friend of the group who is rarely seen in sweat pants and t-shirts. But sometimes you have to be willing to sacrifice to keep warm. In a perfect world, this is how I would want to dress for winter: (courtesy of my obsession with pinterest)
Maybe I am not to that extent yet, but I feel that way. I also feel like I make that face quite a bit. I see people walking all the time with their completely normal face, and when I am walking out in cold weather I make the worst faces. Oh well. Again, sacrifices.
Now winter isn’t all bad– I love the snow (when I don’t have to drive in it), THANKSGIVING, Christmastime, College Basketball (Go NEERS and gooo to my Jayhawks), Football, warm sweaters, chai lattes.. you know… But all this will be relevant around January/February.
The point of this, I am not sure. It might be me venting of my hatred for single digit weather, or it may be of help to those of you who struggle with these concepts…
Also, if my Minnesota relatives or my Alaskan friends are reading this– I know, I’m a wimp.
