Screw Winter

Fuck You Old Man Winter

When I was a kid I used to love sitting inside a nice cozy house during the winter by playing video games, watching TV, or playing with my toys. The outside didn’t really fascinate me so much since I could just receive it all right here at the tip of my fingertips. Take a little imagination and some stimulus and boom you’re set for another couple of days.  Now that I’m older I’d like to formally say that winter can suck a big floppy dick.

As I’ve grown I’ve found that I FUCKING HATE BEING COOPED UP. I get antsy and irritable and the main culprit of it is the cold weather. Cold weather isnt really the problem though it just prevents people from wanting to go outside so like a drug addicted relative it plays off like a bad influence. I cant really blame them though since you cant really appreciate the outside when everything’s dead and dark out there like an ex girlfriends heart.So, on that note, where are we on turning the fucking heat up.

Currently we are teetering on the daylight savings change, about 7 days, and we’ve experience a brief taste of the spring weather to come so everyone is pining for it, like seriously  I had all the windows off on the jeep it was sweeeeet. At this moment though, according to the super duper accurate bullshit that is the accuweather on my phone, it says its a chillingly nut sack freezing of 9 degrees outside but sunny as fuck. I can appreciate sun but without the warmth of it I feel like its just teasing me and then trying to coerce me to pay it for the full show.

So here I sit in a pair of boxers, knee high socks, and BU hoodie waiting for the weather to break while my girlfriend parks her ass directly on the heat vents in each room of the house. Hurry the hell up spring, I want to go outside!

And thus I leave  you with this hilarious comic from OwlTurd by ShenT! This is exactly how I picture winter this year.

A Child of Summer

This is going to be short and sweet so strap in. The weather up here in NY finally broke for the better and it finally seems like winter has left us. The mornings are still somewhat cold and mucky but when the sun comes out you begin to see the terrain with a whole new set of colors. Of course much of the state is still in the post death winter stage of grey’s, brown’s, and pale colors but if you look close enough you can see some of the trees are beginning to show off the faintest hint of red where the new blooms are coming in. What is neat about this state is that when everything does decide to blossom and bud and bloom it does so in a really dramatic way and suddenly. Almost like you wake up one morning, look around, and realize there are flowers everywhere and all the trees have young leaves on them. Its kinda like defacto spring christmas or something although I am sure the Easter bunny would argue with me on that one. I have also noticed a sudden change in many peoples personality in both my personal life and day to day encounters. Its as if a heavy stale mist has finally been removed from a poorly ventilated and crowded room. People are finally starting to relax and become friendly again. I hope for big things this coming spring and cant wait to begin new chapters with some fresh motivation!
