I think we can all agree that this whole winter bullsh*t has dragged on for far too long. Had it been snowing on St. Patrick’s Day, I’m sure there would have been countless outbursts of cursing and physical violence by many as well as increased intoxication by all, the purpose of which would of course be to try and forget that we have such awful weather.
Side note: How funny would the drunk tank at the London Police Station look the morning after St. Patty’s? Probably just as funny as the drunk tank the morning after Halloween.
Anyways we have seen a slight warming in conditions as of late, which is nice don’t get me wrong, but get this: there is snow in the forecast for later this week and even in April (check the weather network I’m serious). What a disaster.
I am a personal believer that weather is a HUGE mood-altering variable, and I asked myself why this was, several times in fact, but I seem to have come up with a short list of the main reasons why.
- Clothes come off.
This is just plain obvious.
If this isn’t the first thing that came to your mind, you’ve got some issues. Furthermore, if you are a Western student, this is huge. It is no secret that the amount of good looking people on this campus outnumbers some small countries, like Lithuania. So when the temperature goes up, you will see a number of things develop. The girls will be having a who-is-wearing-a-shorter-skirt competition that will be ongoing, the boys will be rockin’ some sick Vs, and everybody will be trying to get fit for the beach. They could charge cover to come on campus when the weather is warm.
2. Patio chills
Does anything beat chilling on a patio and having a drink with some friends in the middle of the day? If there is, let me know. The Spoke patio is a sick spot to this after class. Don’t forget your shades because you look way cooler with them on. Also, guys: order a beer not a cocktail.
3. Outdoor parties
This is also pretty self-explanatory. Order a keg, make a Facebook event that DOES NOT contain the address, buy some sort of a ticket/bracelet type deal, hire me or one of our other DJs to provide the music, and you’ve got yourself a jam, and maybe a rap video.
4. Activities, so many activities
Girls will don some outfit from Lulu Lemon, guys will throw on a shirt that’s ripped at the shoulder, and you will see them running all over the place. The world is in better physical shape in the summer, this is a fact. Outdoor activities also include pick up hockey, football, basketball, and soccer games if you’re European. The cool kids are also known for pulling a sick road trip and camping outside.
5. The Beach
The beach is where it’s at. Minimal clothes + sun + good looking people = winning. Whether you’re in Cancun or Grand Bend, this is a proven formula. Don’t forget your sunscreen kids.
I can’t wait.
Keep it fresh,
