You know, I have always felt like FAll was the best season of the year. I can remember way back to being a little kid, when everyone would ask such simple questions as “what’s your favorite season?” and my response was always different than the other kids. They, on repeat, would always answer that the best season was summer time, because they didn’t have to go to school and got to spend time at the beach, going on vacations, and watching TV. Me, on the other hand, I thought that autumn was the best time of the year. I didn’t really like the heat and humidity of summer, in fact it often made me sick as a child because I was predisposed to nasty migraines. Instead, I liked the cool, crisp fall air. I loved the changing colors of the trees. I adored the smell of dried leaves and the feeling of chilly mornings before the sun came out. The only thing I didn’t like very much about fall was how difficult it could be to regulate your own personal temperature properly with the changing air temperatures. Like I said, the mornings are always brisk and shockingly crisp feeling, so you are tempted to layer on tons of fall clothing to protect yourself. The extra warmth feels so cozy and welcoming… at first. However, in the fall, the sun plays a cruel trick around 11am when it suddenly starts pumping tons of heat down to the earth. Suddenly the outdoor air temperature makes leaps and bounds, increasing drastically and making your warm fall outfit completely unnecessary. After you shed about 5 layers of sweaty clothing the day can be saved, but don’t leave your jacket at home; the air temperature will plummet again around 6pm and you’ll be begging for that warm coat back.
