The Dog Days are Over



A lot of you must wonder why do I hate the coming of fall and end of summer so much? I actually do love fall very much: to be able to wear layers, drink warm cups of tea to bed, admire the falling leaves, see my school friends, meet new professors etc. However, it also means I have to stop being lazy and I know I just won't have the time to read books of my choice, to daydream, and to sit and perfect the art of doing nothing. The days will only get shorter and shorter until there is little sunshine left in the day. Though winter is generally bearable until Christmas, fall seems like some kind of cruel teaser to the ensuing horrible weather. How do you guys get through winter?

Yay She and Him! <3

Ah, I'm trying not to think about the amount of work that will pour down on us.

I just get myself a pumpkin spice latte and do all of my work at a cafe. Hopefully no procrastination...

oh summer is quite horrible on my side of the world, so I'm dreading it. I wish winter would stay forever (to be fair, we have 'fake' winters in Australia - i.e. pleasant ones).

@Hila, I totally understand what you mean! Hong Kong's summers are positively hell on earth and the winters are rather pleasant and enjoyable. If only we could have the best of both worlds.

@Jada, Yea I'll try and get out more but one of the ways I procrastinate is to find "new" places to study, hee.

Watching loads of movies, drawing and going to gigs. The gig fall season is pretty good here in Belgium. But I do hate the cold and the lack of sunshine, my body can't handle it, I'm always wearing three layers of everything, which make me look like a michelin man ^^

I tend to like autumn and spring best, it's winter/summer I dislike.

Maybe it's because I was born in April when it's not too hot or too cold..
