Hey guys! It’s that time of the year again! No, it’s not quite Christmas. It’s autumn. Fall has always been my favorite season and October my favorite month. Is it because my birthday is exactly one week before Halloween? Possibly. But I love the cool weather that accompanies the fall (and especially October) where it’s comfortable enough to just need a sweater and a pair of jeans.
Some people started to complain when the weather began to change over the past week or so. Some don’t want the summer to end and others are not looking forward to what is most likely bound to be a frigid winter (if it’s anything like last year). I embraced it. Don’t get me wrong, I love the freedom that summer brings (although I haven’t been able to go on a vacation or take full advantage of it for years), it’s just not my thing.
When I was much younger, I, like all kids, loved the winter. Loved playing in the snow, making forts, snow angels and snowmen. Now, I loathe having to shovel the driveway and worrying about getting sick in the process. Who enjoys the bitter cold? I’m sure there’s a lot of people who love getting cozy in the winter, but I’d much rather stick to the autumn.
If I could move somewhere and live where it’s always 65-75 degrees year round, I would in a heartbeat. This place doesn’t seem to exist, at least not in the East Coast. I love being in such close proximity to the City (that’s New York City to all of you South Jersey/non-tri state area people) but if I had the option of being in eternal fall, I would. Apparently, Seattle has a climate similar to the one I described, although it’s very cloudy there. Santa Barbara, California is almost identical to being 65-75 all year. Maybe I’ll move there.
