As I sit in my cold room, waiting for the heater to start up, I can’t stop thinking about how much I love summer and hate the winters. Living in snowy Michigan isn’t too fun.
Being a Summer baby, (July 6th to be exact), I feel like my esscense is sunny. Being stuck with dreary skies makes me feel drained and isolated.
Summer means long nights, laughs with old friends, my birthday month (of course!), road trips, concerts, and so much more.
Now don’t get me wrong, Winter does have perks. Holidays, hot chocolate, visits from old friends, cuddling against the warm fire. I just feel like Michigan winters are ages long, 6 months to be exact.
I feel like I need two summers to be able to cope with the cold force that is winter. I am very affected by weather, as are many with types of seasonal depression. I can’t wait to someday live somewhere sunny.
I had a dream the other night I was on a beach, which is hilarious because the one thing I don’t enjoy that much about Summer are beaches. It could be the sand get stuck everywhere, or sweating more thn tanning, but I think the thing I don’t like most is the relaxing part. All year we have time to sit and relax, so why waste the sun?
I am a very impulsive person with a go-go-go personality. Sitting around on a beach all the time is just not ideal to me.
We can all find imperfections with what we love, and we can find that in anything.
I guess from now until when the sunshine makes a return, I’m stuck here with my summer playlists and my sun & sand candle. Hopefully, I don’t have to wait too long.
