5 Reasons I Do [Not] Like Summer


I know what you're thinking.

'HOW COULD YOU NOT LIKE SUMMER, RAQUEL?!'

Well, hear me out.  And by the end of this, you may agree with me on these top 5 reasons.  Or at least one of them.


1.  Heat
C'mon, admit it.  sometimes it just gets too dang hot.  I've learned to always have a lemonade, smoothie or a pool nearby during the summer months.  And a fan or air conditioner with me at all times.  Not only does the heat make you too hot to DO anything, but if you're like me, you get pretty severe migraines because of it too.  And yes, I stay hydrated.

2.  Immodesty
This goes hand in hand with the heat.  There's only so much you can take off, you know?  And some people don't really know the limit.  (I'm talking about string bikinis here, haters.  Not shorts and a tank-top.)

3.  Smoking
Yes, I know, people smoke year round.  But during the summer, when the air is thick and the heat is unmoving, one of the worst smells to catch your nose is the smoke coming from a cigarette.

4.  Static
Because of the heat, there is more electricity everywhere and static is on everything metallic that you touch.  Not cool.  I get shocked pretty much everywhere I go.

5.  Creatures
All the creepy critters decide that now is the time to come out and enjoy the sun...WITH ME.  Yellow jackets, mosquitos, spiders, you name it.  No thanks.  I'll just go back inside where my room is cool and no bugs can even attempt to crawl on me.

I've always preferred colder months, honestly.  Sorry (not sorry) if this post offends you heat-lovers at all.
And yes, I will be writing a 5 Reasons I Love Autumn as soon as September rolls around.

  4. all of these reasons. XD

    I've always said I prefer winter because you can keep adding clothes on during winter, but theres only so much you can take off before it becomes an issue during summer.

  5. I agree 100%. Summer is my least favorite season . . . how can ANYBODY like so much heat? I suppose if one's from a more temperate area, it wouldn't be so bad, but I know you're from the Portland region and I only live about 120 miles away in Goldendale, WA. It gets ridiculously hot 'round here.

  6. Yesss. I love summer activities (camps, more free time, swimming, beach times) but not the heat and humidity that comes along with it.

  7. I am from Oklahoma, the ungodly land where temperatures potentially rise to 115 degrees Fahrenheit during the summer. It's ridiculous and disgusting. I agree. And don't even get me started on the bugs and creepy creatures. Here we not only have mosquitoes, spiders and disease-bearing ticks but also scorpions!! Ew. Fortunately next week I will be escaping to the Great Lakes in Michigan!! Autumn, please come again soon.

  8. Man, I hate also how bugs (aka spiders) decide, "Oh, hey, let's all go in the house, especially in Rachel's bedroom, and turn her into a Kung Fu master in the middle of the night." I think for me the bugs and the humidity (even in Oregon) is the worse :/
