Spring is here and it’s my favorite season of the year! I love when the days get longer, and warmer. It’s so exciting to be able to pack my thick winter clothes away and pull out my favorite spring clothes. Last year, the weather was pretty crazy and it felt almost like we went from really cold weather to hot all of a sudden. But this year, I hope we get to enjoy gradual change in weather and the beauty of spring.
Since I’m usually at home wrapped in blankets during the winter, I like to get outside during spring. One of my favorite things to do is take walks in the evenings. We already know that exercise is an extremely important part of a healthy lifestyle, so I try to incorporate it into my daily life. During the winter, exercise is mostly walking on the treadmill or doing yoga in my room, but during spring, I like to go running at the local boardwalk. It’s a nice feeling to listen to some music and feel the cool breeze on my skin as I get in some daily steps.
Another thing I look forward to in the spring is sitting outside to do normal things. I like to sit in my favorite chair in the backyard and just read, sketch, or write. Just things that I would normally do inside! I actually don’t like to do things outside during the summer because it’s just too hot and sticky, and there are wayyy too many mosquitos flying around. But spring is the perfect season–the weather is not too cold or too hot, and there aren’t as many bugs as there are in the summer.
The last thing I can’t wait to do this spring is…drink lots of iced drinks! I love iced drinks, but the ones from Dunkin or Starbucks are just too sweet and over time, the price adds up. So last year, I watched some videos and learned how to make my own iced tea and iced coffee! Now they are a lot healthier and so much cheaper than if I were to buy them every time I felt like drinking them. I pretty much only drink hot drinks during winter, but as the weather starts to warm up, don’t be surprised if you see me sporting my homemade drinks as I walk to class.
As you can probably tell from my post, I am just so excited and ready for spring this year. I hope the weather starts warming up soon so we can all enjoy some nice time before the hot weather comes again.
