Yes. It is cold out. The temperature is pretty much a daily conversation at school these days. I feel bad for the classmates experiencing extremely cold temperature for the first time. Growing up in Minnesota has taught me a thing or two about surviving long cold winters. Here are a couple of tips:
- Hibernate! Plan your schedule strategically to limit the amount of outside exposure. This quarter I have all of my classes stacked on Mondays, Wednesday, and Thursdays, so I’m able to stay home if there are no meetings or get-togethers during other days of the week. If you work full-time, run your errands after work so that you can Netflix and chill on the weekends.
- Ditch the heels. This is common sense. The streets will be icy, so there is a high chance of slipping and falling. Get a pair of UGG or SOREL.
- Bundle up. Winter accessories–hats, scarves, gloves, leg warmers–are a must! Down jackets are amazing–super light yet extremely warm. Forget about looking good. If it’s super windy out, all you will see are my eyes while the rest of my face is wrapped up.
- Plan a vacation. The winters will be long, so plan a getaway to look forward to and pray that your flight won’t be canceled due to weather.
Let me know where you live and how the winter is going for you! I hope all of my east coast friends are staying warm and safe.
