A change of Season

I try to soak in the heat from the deceptive winter sun before a chill wind takes it all away, I'm not too sucessful.
It's colder than ever here, about 11 degrees. I'm an icicle. Visions of grande vanilla mochas float before my eyes. Visions of being wrapped up in never ending hugs to shield me from the cold. Visions of sitting on the bed, wrapped up in a huge blanket, with someone to hold. Someone nice and warm. And my mocha.

Blanket+Mocha+hug= Reasonably tolerable winter. I might even enjoy it.

But alas, the only ones who wish to envelope me in their not-so-warm embraces are the physics, chem and math. Ugh.

I've always been terrible with cold. Maybe it hits me worse coz I'm so thin, the chill goes right through. It's not even like a Delhi winter, those are cold and kinda stationary...(I pity all you Delhiites right now) I've been to Delhi in winter, for about 2-3 days at a time, and the last time I was there I was wearing 3 layers and I was still freezing!
But here, it's windy. You get those precious golden rays at like 10 am, but then this wind comes up and whips it all away. I curl up and shiver. My winter wardrobe is nonexistent. Apart from my fave Puma double-sleevie thing.
I think my mood differs with season.....I love the heat. LOVE summer. Especially here, where I can feel the burn on my face and my arms (Ironically, the only place I got sunburnt was in Himachal Pradesh. Bharmour. And I live in a country where peak summer temperature is 45 degrees) Sadly I never get to enjoy the full summer, when it's hottest here, I'm in Mumbai, on summer vacation, hiding from the rain.
Brrrrrrrr.
I want to hibernate for a week. Muscles all stiff.
Wake me up when this winter ends..........


Anyway, the tuition teachers have got me all freaked out, so for the first time in my life, I'm going to make a study timetable. And stick to it.
Or try.
Wish me luck........

I love the cold. And yes, the wind sucks. :/

Cold + no wind = fun.

Probably not as much fun as Blankie+Mocha+Hug. You beat me there. >_<

Still, I need no blankie, have had 6 capuchinos this evening to conpensate, and see no signs of hugs from any direction other than my doggie, and that always leaves me with a whole lot of fur in my mouth. X_X

Best of luck with your schedules. I've never been able to stick to any I've made in my life. By Bob, there are too many shiny things out there to stay in one place doing something you thought you'd be doing three weeks ago!

Nothing's going by the rulebook any more. Winter's threatening to freeze half my friend-circle into grouchy iced-amigos. Rain arrives and departs as it pleases. Can't even trust the summer to behave now, given how cold it was this year. >_<

I should go burn some more caffeine now, before I hit the character limit for this comment.

Cheers! ^_^

taurius1 said...

And I think even more. :)

It used to be very ugly, once upon a time. I actually used to get migranes coz I couldn't stop thinking. Over time, I developed my own ways to deal with it.

i miss winters in bombay and this time though we were in for a plesant surprise. though it was still nothing like yours or delhi for that matter, nor did we dress in layers, it was still better.

and i wish you all the best with your time table. like all time tables, may you not stick to it.

Espèra said...

Ooh. Insulting Delhi winters, are you? Come on. They're not soo bad.

I like the wind. Even though it's completely freezing.

But then again, if all you wanted out of winters was the sun, what's the point of it being winter?

2 espera: yes they are. and ther IS no point of winter. Not one with me in it.
