Things I Hate #2: The Heat

It has been over a week of 30c/86F degree days, and I’m completely over it. I’m never a fan of hot weather, but it’s even worse on work/school days.

Travelling to and from classes each day, in a stinking hot train, waiting on platforms for them to open the damn train, as it just sits there. Air conditioning not working, then schlepping up and down stairs, sprinting to air conditioned rooms, to only have to face it all again on the way home.

It’s not good, in fact what makes it worse is I missed most of summer, having been overseas. So stepping into theĀ furnaceĀ from winter elsewhere, is a bit of a shock to the system.

Relief is apparently on the way come Thursday. It can’t come soon enough, even those crazy friends of mine who love hot weather, are over it already.

Here’s hoping it’s a cold and wet winter ahead, we all need it.
