Picture of a frosty football field the other morning on my way to class... At least the sun was up too!

I don’t like this cold and grey weather that we had this past week. It is depressing, and it makes me lazy. In other words, it makes me procrastinate even worse than before… I don’t like it at all! I miss the warm weather, but I know it will be months until we get to experience that around here again.
I am usually very cold, and when people are comfortable I often complain about it being too cold. However, I do dress accordingly with warm jackets, hats and mittens. When I do so, people like to comment on it. I often get the comment: “you are from Sweden, shouldn’t you be used to this kind of weather?!” – it never fails! I swear, if I had a dollar for every time someone said that to me, I would be rich today! It’s probably at least one every day. I’m not going to lie, it is kind of annoying!
My attitude is that as long as I don’t complain about being cold; don’t pick on me for it! I know I’m easily cold, but hey at least I am taking care of it with my warm jackets, scarves and hats. Even though I am very comfy in my big jacket in wintertime, I can’t help but longing for the summer… I like the warm weather – but who doesn’t?
