And I don't think I'm alone in this.
When it's summer I always wish it was December so I could spend time picking out Christmas gifts and making snow angels -- completely disregarding how much I hate driving in the snow and despise even having to go outside in below zero temperatures.
On the same token, on winter days like today, I wish it was a sunny summer day in July. Again, disregarding the fact that I hate the heat when I'm actually in it, don't like going to the beach, and can't breath in the humidity.
I guess the grass is always greener.

I drove to work this morning with sliding all over the roads with visibility barely over 10 percent, and saw a car flipped over on the side of the highway leaving that sinking feeling of doom in the pit of my stomach.
Yeah, yeah I know...for someone who has lived here my whole life I should be used to it, huh? And if I don't like it I should move, right? Well I guess it just comes along with my CNY blood. Does anyone see where I coming from with this or am I just a complainer? (I can handle the truth and I've been called much worse.)
