Spring is my least favorite season. I just have the hardest time with it. Summer is great, Fall is awesome, Winter is survivable, but Spring is a little torturous for me. It makes me all sad, gloomy, slow, depressed even.
I'm sure there are some people that just love Spring. They love the flowers and... and.. well, I don't know what else there is to love about spring (because I don't love it).
Did you know that in Washington, Spring means rain? And lots of it. Like as much rain as you can imagine... plus a little more. See the forecast on my phone... that thing to the right of my thumb is not a chandelier... it's the image of rain. Rain all week. No sun, just rain. Rain rain rain rain rain. Rain.
Sure, you have to get through Spring to get to Summer, but we still have MONTHS until Summer happens here. (In my opinion, Summer doesn't even start here until mid to late July). And there are the occasional days of sunshine (like amazing Monday) but not nearly enough to keep my pale skin pink.... or a spring in my step.
Today was so sad and gloomy and rainy that I almost got washed away. I feel like I would give anything to have some sunshine everyday. I feel like it's extremely rare to wake up to sunshine here. On most of the forecasted sunny days, you have to wait until noon for the 'fog' to 'burn' off.
Oh man, I'm such a complainer when it comes to the lack of natural vitamin D (and I know I'm not the only one) but it's just so hard to do anything in the rain. It's not awesome to drive in. Nobody in real life dances in it. It's not enjoyable to run in, ride your bike in, or even check the mail in. It's good for nothing... except for the water cycle and pretty much everything else.
But the water cycle and everything else needs the sun too and we don't see very much of that. :'( I'm dying for some sun. Waaaaaaah
