The weather is definitely warming up. This was the first day where I started with tights and then had to ditch them. While I’m happy that it’s spring, I have mixed emotions. It feels great to not have to wear four layers just to leave the house, but at the same time, I feel so exposed without all my winter layers. I know I’ll get used to it. Spring is wonderful and bittersweet at the same time, because it means that my boots, tights and sweaters will once again be hidden in the back of my closet til October.
But the weather is so beautiful right now; I can’t stay grumpy for long. We only get a few weeks of spring here in Florida before the brutal summer temps start to hit, so I want to enjoy these glorious days in the 60s and 70s while I can. It is wonderful to be able to wear a light cardigan and have bare legs. Soon it will be so hot, that I will be sweating like crazy after standing outside for five minutes.
I guess I’m just really mixed on my weather preferences. Maybe I should live somewhere like San Diego. The weather was so fantastic there when I visited back in October. But then I would probably miss Florida. I guess the grass is always greener.
Still, I’m feeling great, and I’m so excited to start my new job next week. It will be so great to finally have a regular job with regular hours (and regular pay!). I’d always fought the concept of a 9 – 5 (or in this case, 7 – 4) job but right now, I think that consistency is what I really need. One day, I would love to own my own business (a vintage shop maybe? or start an indie clothing line? or be a professional photographer?) but for now, this is really, really what I need.
How do you feel about the changing of the seasons? What would your ideal climate be?
