It’s that time of the year, folks. Gatvol time of the year. I-don’t-want-to-get-up-in-the-mornings time of the year. Sommer net nie lus nie time of the year.
I’ve been in such a slump this past 2 weeks, partially because I have DISGUSTING allergies and have been drowning in phlegm. (I’m not sorry for oversharing) But also because this month has just been too damn long.
I’m tired. I want it to be spring already. I want the weather to change and for the year to come to an end. Whenever I say this to people, they’re always like, “No man, Anja! It’s a sin to wish time away!”
I live for summer, and to me there’s actually just two periods in a year: Summer and not summer. I don’t give a shit about winter. I don’t even like to acknowledge its existence. So yes, I am wishing time away, because I can’t wait to wear shorts and vests again, for my legs to be tanned and my days to be longer!
But we live in the Western Cape, and spring is a sneaky shit here. One year it pitches up in September, another year it only arrives early November. So it’s been really difficult to really get excited about the changing of seasons.
That said, at least I know that it’s not that far away, and pretty soon I’ll be going to work in daylight, and coming home in daylight!
Until then I’ll have to find something to make me happy. So here’s what I’m going to do:
1. Google Britney’s past
Honestly though, nothing makes me feel better about myself than looking at photos of Britney during her downward spiral of doom. I swear she’s actually a vampire, and she switched her humanity off in 2007.
The only thing that makes me feel better than looking at Breakdown Britney, is Booming Britney. She picked herself up and got right back on the stage to wow the world with her ferocious fabulosity.
So every time I am down in the dumps, I’ll Google Britney and remember that I am on my way to 2014 Britney.
2. Laugh at GIFS
HAHAHA JUST LOOK AT THEM!
3. Change my haircolour
I can’t do anything about the kak darkness outside, but I can do something about my dark hair. So bring on those highlights!
4. Remind myself that the American summer is coming to an end
That’s right, Americans. Laugh it up, because summer is returning to the Southern Hemisphere!
Okay, not that any Americans have actually explicitly laughed at us for living in wintery conditions.
Also, I’m pretty sure they’re excited about winter.
But whatever, LAUGH IT UP BECAUSE WE WIN.
5. I’ma going shop for summer
I’m just casually going to drop some crop tops and dresses into my trolley like it’s summer. Whatever. It’s coming soon. I don’t need to justify my actions.
6. Get endorphins
Exercise is really good for endorphins, and guess what?
SO IS CHOCOLATE
7. Google dog pictures
8. Eat fuckloads of pizza
PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA PIZZA HAPPINESS!
