Why Is it So Dam Cold

No, people, I’m not cursing. I’m on an island, so the “dam” joke applied to the situation.

I walked about two miles today in the cold, unforgiving snow of New York. I got uncountable amounts of ice dropped into my eyes from the sky, and I wrapped my face tightly in my hoodie. My very eyeballs were cold from being out in the 36 degrees of cold.

I honestly don’t understand how you people stand it being so cold so late in the year. Back home, it’s 80 degrees, and here I am wearing 2-3 layers of clothing.

However, despite the cold, I managed to get a few pictures and three videos! I’m going to post them over the course of the next few days, so be on the lookout for some New York action!20170318_070438

sNOW!? – taken by me several hours later.

Hope you enjoyed these!

Woo! It’s time for the seasonal GIRLPOWER awards that I just started and am super nervous about because it’s my first ever award and don’t know if it’ll catch on!

So! These are the nominees:

Loren: Happy House of AG

Kellyn Roth: Reveries


Cora and Calli: coraandcalli.wordpress.com

All of you must write a blog post containing a (at least) 300 word blobĀ about your favorite thing/book/person in the world. It can be a story about unicorns, a fanfiction based off Harry Potter, a love letter to coffee, or whatever – but it has to be a one-shot. Also, link me to the post in the comments.

Also, I am pretty positive that all of you are girls. However, if one of you are not a girl, please contact me immediately and I will remove you from the nominations. This is a girls-only award.

Your post has to be done by August 15th. All of you will come in places, 1st-4th. There is no significant prize except bragging rights.

The Leibster Award
