So today's So Whats! Are going to be me
Here's why I dislike the season (aside from the mini Bath and Body Works scented candles, those I love):
I hate to be scared. Yes, if you haven't noticed I like to focus on the "lovely" things in life. I feel like Halloween is all about scary, gross, stuff like torture and death. It's not that I am against Halloween in general for religious reasons (tons of people are and that's okay), I just think Halloween not fun for me and I prefer more happy celebrations during you know, the daytime.
Haunted houses. I refuse to go to them. I guess back on the scared thing... I have no desire to have fear/scariness in my life. I work pretty hard at keeping myself and Gav happy. I know haunted houses are fake, but I just don't think they are fun. I never have.
Horror movies. Same thing. I'd rather watch a romantic comedy. Or documentary. Or I don't know, there are enough effed up people in the world. How about watch the news sometime. That's pretty much a horror movie if you really think about it, right?
I like pumpkin. I really do. I have had probably 5 pumpkin spice latte's already this year. I have made the infamous 2 ingredient pumpkin/spice muffins. I feel like this time of year I have to eat all the pumpkin I can get my hands on. If someone offered me a PSL in May I'd probably say no way. But I think I like pumpkin more for the novelty than the actual taste. Same with candy corn. I mean I like it, I'll eat it. But why do they not offer it year round if it's so delicious? Just sayin!
The sudden rainyness all the time - It should only rain at night. This goes for any time of year. But in the fall it just seems to be this constant annoying state of dreariness I've never been to Seattle or London, but this is how I'd imagine both of them to be.
Remember a couple Fridays ago I shared that BF and I were going to our HS's football game? Well we couldn't. Because of rain. So no cute pics of me in his letter jacket :(
The slick roads. The other week Gav was outside and took a bad tumble on slick leaves outside. He scraped his knee, got a bloody nose, and hit his head. He still has bruises. He says he also hates fall because it made him 'fall.' true story.
Also.. Remember a couple weeks back I talked about taking off work and going to the apple orchard with Gav's class because I had never picked apples and was so excited? Well 0 for 1 on the apple picking. Apparently the orchard was 'all picked out' and they gave the kids pumpkins. Not the same.
The sun. The whole reason the weather's changing is because of the earth's tilt and yes I understand. What I don't like is the crazy amounts of fog on my car every morning making it all covered in wetness. Then the sun's at this weird angle, reflecting on the wet car and I'm seriously blind. I turn on the winsheld wipers, and the inside is foggy. I turn on the defrost and it's the outside that is covered in mist. It's super unsafe and annoying.
The sun (again). It gets dark so so so so early. I hate it. I feel trapped in my home. I need sunshine for motivation. I stop going to Target, just this time of year and the darkness is so depressing.
I found this on weheartit.com and I pretty much don't love any of these things. Some are like a 4 out of 10 on the scale of awesome. But zero are worth bragging that you 'love'
I am thinking there is something wrong with me. EVERYONE loves fall. I just hate it. I like winter okay, but fall is like the warm-up (not literally) getting me ready for the coldness and super short days of winter. (insert sarcastic tone) I can't wait to take a day off work because school is closed due to snow.
Seriously, though... am I the only one who seriously hates fall and makes lists of everything I don't like about it? So what! I really do not like it. Please help!
