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.
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.
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.)
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.
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.
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.
