Question of the day.

What’s your favourite season? Why?

My answer:

I used to love summer. If someone would ask me why, I’d typically say that because holidays are in summer (so I could be home from the boarding school for a longer time), because you can be in the sea, and because you can pick berries (I loved berries as a kid, I still do, but back then I lived in the countryside so we had a forest on the other side of our gate and we would often go there to pick them. But I never really had high tolerance for heat so for that reason summer also really sucked for me. Now that I’m out of school and don’t have to wait for holidays, and still hate heat, it doesn’t have all that appeal to me anymore. I think these days I like winter more, when it’s cold outside but you can keep yourself cosy inside if it gets too cold and feel happy that you don’t have to be outside. Misha is also so delightfully sleepy in winter. He’s also super sleepy in summer but that’s more of the heat and it feels more lethargic and apathetic, while in winter he’s just kinda lazy and often even a bit more cuddly. And generally the feel of winter feels somehow friendly to me these days. My ex-pen pal said once that he thinks that winter is a very friendly season for introverts. I got very curious and asked him why he thought so (with all my current liking for winter I think Christmas, New Year celebrations and the like don’t necessarily have to be the best thing for all introverts, in my family we also have a lot of winter birthdays, myself included, so I wasn’t really sure if I shared this opinion) but he couldn’t really specify. But when I think of it more, even with all the Christmas shopping, socialising and what not, there is something about winter indeed that makes it friendly for introverts and other asocial individuals. What do you think? πŸ™‚

And what about your favourite season? πŸ™‚

  1. Winter for introverts, huh! I like the idea, and it makes me think of, like, hiding inside on a cold day, draped over the space heater with a mug of cocoa and a wonderful book!! But your points about holidays are also valid! And for me, winter is disastrous, as the lack of sunshine renders me freakin’ irrational. I live in constant fear of getting my fool self arrested. [Shaking my head at myself.]

    I guess my favorite season is… hmm… not summer, because it’s sort of hot and feels endless and permanent. I like both spring and fall a lot as the in-between seasons, and I never spend fall being anxious about winter because I love the holidays too much!! But then my birthday’s in spring, and the return of warm weather after it’s been gone feels so wonderful!! I’d call it a tossup between spring and fall then, followed by summer, with winter in dead last.

    1. Hahaha, oh yeah, you’re making a great point about winter. πŸ™‚
      I feel for all the people who have SAD. Luckily for me, my depression doesn’t have a seasonal pattern so I don’t need to hate autumn and winter.

    1. Early autumn is very nice weather-wise indeed. πŸ™‚ I tend to feel rather apprehensive of September though since I still get a fair bit of stressful memories and weird dreams around that time. But since it’s getting better, I’m learning to like autumn more and I think there’s a lot to like about early autumn.

  2. Autumn for me I think. Summer in the UK tends to be humid and unpleasant, so it’s nice when autumn comes along and cools it down a bit. I don’t like the shorter days though πŸ€”
