You Might Think You Like Spring, But You Could Be Wrong.
During winter, I always long for when spring comes around. I don't like the cold, and I'm always pumped for the sun to start shining again. This past winter, I felt a longing for spring that I had never felt before because the season was extra cold, and I was just done with it. Over it. Even though I'm a December baby, I just really don't like winter.
Now that spring is here, some days, I'm like "Yay! The weather is perfect!" and then other days, I'm like "Okay...can it be summer already?" When I was in school, I wanted summer for a break from school; now I want summer for a break from spring! It's like a never-ending cycle of season hatred. The only season that's got everything going for it is fall.
Why this sudden longing for summer? Because spring sucks. Yeah, I said. Okay, not everything about it sucks, but it's definitely got a lot of downsides.
I hate pollen! My car is blue, and when the pollen attacks it, it looks green and grossly dirty. It's pretty much pointless to even wash my car during spring because the next day it'll just get covered in pollen, and all of the elbow grease would have gone to waste, so I just drive around with a dirty car.
Adding onto the dirty car comment, the birds are just flying about during the spring, which is awesome in some cases. I've always been fascinated by birds. Not bird-watcher fascinated, but I love when I see a ton of birds flying together. I just think it's so pretty! Until they poop. The parking spots for my apartment are all under trees, meaning that the birds just come take their rests on the trees above my car, and the next day, my car is even more gross. Yuck.
I don't have allergies, but everyone around me seems to. I'm so greatful for my lack of allergies, but it sucks that everyone around me is sneezing, Molly included. She sneezes on my feet all the time, and it's just gross. Poor puppy, but also poor Tiffany.
Rain is only okay in certain circumstances: (1) When I'm inside and have nowhere to go. (2) When it's raining and storming so bad that the power goes out. (3) When it's cleaning all of the pollen off of my car. That's pretty much all that rain is good for. Otherwise, it's annoying. It rains so much in the spring, and I hate it. I hate driving in the rain because I already suck at driving. We don't need to add in the slippery roads and decrease my ability to see.
Louisiana humidity is absolutely awful. The air is sticky and always makes me feel like I'm sweating. Plus, my hair... Oh, my hair.
Anytime that I see a mosquito (or any flying insect), it makes me itchy. Doesn't matter if I haven't been stung or bitten, it just makes me itchy. I hate going through swarms of flying gnats and having gross bumps all over me from mosquito bites. I just hate bugs. All of them.
Not everything about spring is horrible. For example, I like:
Spring colors (all the pastels)
When the sun is shining and the weather is actually nice
Wearing floral prints and spring colors
The beginning of crawfish season!!!
Spring does have its redeeming qualities, but I'm ready to skip to summer.
