Yesterday I sat outside in a sweater, under a tree, and read. Today, I am huddled in the warm under belly of Physical Sciences. Why the change from natural to nerdy? One word: snow.
Initially, I cursed the precipitation, but then I thought maybe I should pro con this snow business. So here it is, me deciding if I like the snow...

PRO: I get to wear more clothes. Shirt, sweater, scarf, hat, blazer, thick socks, and my favorite boots. Every hipster kid dreams of wearing several ironic items all at one. What is a better excuse than freezing weather?

PRO: Less visible skanks on campus. Sure it was nice out a couple days later. However, that also meant I had to see half ass hanging out of skirts and shorts. Granted snow doesn't mean these people don't exist anymore (can you imagine? awesome), however at least I don't have the urge to gouge my eyes out.

PRO: In an emergency situation I can probably just lie down in the snow and blend in to the sparkly whiteness.

CON: To blend into the snow I would probably have to dress like a Bond girl circa 1965.

CON? Was that last one really a con....?

CON: People tend to want to have ridiculous coffee drinks when it snows. I realize correlation doesn't equal causation (egad! Thanks Sats. 1000), but anytime it remotely looks like Christmas people want diabetes in a cup.

PRO: I kind of want hot cocoa...

So, taking a tally that is four pros and one (one and a half?) cons. I guess I do like the snow. Who's up for sledding?

And a little snow related playlist

    Also, I love Tunnels from Arcade Fire. Very wintery. and lovely.
