I have a confession to make. If you know me in real life, than you know I absolutely detest the cold. I hate being cold and avoid it at all costs. I’ve dabbled in having severe cases of hypothermia which I think probably plays a big role in it-but cold is not for me. I’ll bundle up in at least 10 layers before venturing outdoors in the winter-but I’d rather just not. Don’t get me wrong-I would have NEVER known if I didn’t try and go to school in the arctic but hopefully I won’t have to life somewhere near here again.
I try not to complain about it too much but having weeks where it doesn’t get above 0 is somewhat obnoxious. It has quite caused me to really not care for my college at this particular time of year. As in-drag me out of my bed to want to even pretend I want to be in Northern NY. Let me just lay in bed and blog forever.
But I’m going to remain positive because it’s my senior year of college and hopefully the last semester I spend in this climate. Your attitude is what makes or breaks you and this girl is NOT going to be broken her last semester of college up here.
So I’ve compiled a list of things I love about my life at Upstate:
1. My friends. Duh ya’ll are number 1.
2. My campus is absolutely beautiful in the winter time. SPU!
3. I can wear lots of scarves, UGG boots and leg warmers and not be questioned.
4. While running on the treadmill is god awful most of the time, it forces me to be slow and cut my mileage. My body will thank me in the spring months when I’m *NOT* burnt out and PRing (because I full intend too).
I’ve also looked around some good photos to remind me of all the good times I’ve had throughout college and how much I’ve had.
This was at orientation!
Question for you:
How do you stay positive during negative times?
