Blaugust 25: Yes, It IS Too Hot


Recently, it’s started to cool off a little bit. That would tend to happen in the later part of summer, right? Seems logical? I couldn’t say. It’s so hot that I DON’T UNDERSTAND WHAT LOGIC IS.

I guess this is how weather in New England has always been, but according to most news outlets each year is setting new records for heat. So when it gets cooler for a few days and I can get through the day without feeling like I’m melting–and then it gets hot again, I really feel offended. The weather has perpetrated a personal slight against me. I get too comfortable when it cools off, thinking that I’ll finally be able to function like a human rather than a pile of goo, and I’m never prepared for the heat wave that ALWAYS comes back again, it seems.

That was very badly written. It’s because I’m so hot. Because my room retains heat like it’s lined in lead or something. (Is that how lead would work? I’m really tired so I’m not sure if that’s correct.)

 

This post is stupid.

Death to summer. Long live fall!

Blaugust 5: Too Darn Hot


When the weather cooled down a little while ago, it felt so good. Too good, really. Weather just should not make me this happy. But it seems that as much as I hate being cold (so I wear multiple layers every day in the winter), I also can’t stand being hot. My body just does not react well to it.

This is the reason I love fall. It has nothing to do with a particular flavor of latte or the leaves changing. It’s because the relief of being too hot for days (or weeks!!!!) on end finally comes. It’s finally possible to wear clothes without wanting to pass out.

Sure, I could just drink beverages loaded up with ice all day, but 1. the ice melts really fast and 2. then I have to pee every ten minutes. I also don’t have easy access to a pool, air conditioning or even good air flow at home, or nearly enough clothes that are loose and airy but still things I can wear in public.

If you are an adult (who does not work as a teacher) and you love summer, I’m sorry but I think you’re lying.

An Update: Where the Hell Have I Been? (A: I don’t know…)


I have one or two posts I intended to put up but I’m not going to do that right now. :/

 

I realize I haven’t been blogging much lately. Work is busy, and outside of work one can only sort of have both free time and a social life. One cannot have both. As I’ve been trying to get certain things done in my free time, I haven’t really thought much about blogging. I also have not been doing anything that exciting with food, plus I am not fond of the practice of going to get my phone so I can take crappy pictures while I’m cooking. It’s just… no. Not really. In addition, I don’t like taking pictures of my food while I’m eating out. It’s not that I think doing so just automatically makes you something of a hipster/douche (which… it only sort of does, and only if you post all the pictures on instagram), it’s more that when I go to eat food I think more about EATING the food. So how likely is it that I’m going to pause to take a picture before starting to stuff my face? (A: Not freaking likely.)

 

I have been making an effort to continue my Monday Madness posts here and the new weekly feature, Five Things Friday, on my writing blog. I think that’s been going pretty well. However, I still have not found time to sit down and write, for several reasons, and I have also been dying in the heat this week. I am so glad it’s about to cool off a bit, because otherwise I might have to give up on clothes entirely. Since I don’t work at home, that could have caused problems.

I have a Love with Food unboxing up on youtube and I’m soon going to make another video about how I’m planning to use the channel as a tool related to my writing. Not sure how well that one’s going to go yet, but if you’re curious, check my channel in a few days to find that one. Since that video will be centered on writing, I will probably post a link to it in a Between Worlds post, so you can also check there. (Links to the blog and my youtube channel are both in the sidebar, just scroll down a little, you’ll find it!)

 

So, I’m sorry if you’ve been waiting for more food posts, I’ve just been having a lot AND nothing going on at the same time, which has made for a huge lag in posting. I’m hoping I’ll have a chance to pick up with this again over the next few months. I am going to be making something hopefully very yummy in the next few weeks, and maybe I will get a chance to get some good pictures of it.  Just stick around and you won’t regret it! (At least, I don’t think you will. But I’m not psychic.)
