Daily Prompt Turn, Turn, Turn Seasons change so quickly! Which one do you most look forward to? Which is your least favorite?
I may have atypical seasonal affective disorder, I don’t know, but summer has never been my favorite season. I can’t remember not feeling pressured by something in summer; I can’t remember not feeling like a huge failure in summer. Summer is like a 3 month long Christmas with its absurd expectations that never pan out. Living in California it was easy to dislike summer — summer was the season when it was too hot to hike in the middle of the day and the rattlesnakes were out in the late afternoon and early morning, not that I ever hiked in the early morning. Late afternoon for me. Why would any rational person hike when the day is just going to get HOTTER the light would blast white, when they could hike when the day is going to get cooler as time passes, and the light would change to something golden and beautiful?
I basically just endure summer — traveling somewhere makes it more bearable, and I’ve just filled out the application to renew my passport. I got my photo, too. It says “winter” if anything ever did.
