Feeling the end of summer approach is heartbreaking. It’s a combination of my love of southern california summer and my absolute loathing for winter. Being cold is a miserable feeling, and waking up when the sky is still dark isn’t quite as uplifting as waking up to a bright, sunny morning. Rolling out of bed, stepping out of the shower, pumping gas … all are things that become excruciatingly difficult when it’s cold.
If I had the means, I would spend my year globe-trotting, chasing summer, never letting winter catch up to me.
