But oh, oh those summer nights....

Was it love at first sight?"

I have a love-hate relationship with summer. You're probably thinking, what can I even hate about summer? Simple-A LOT. For starters, 'tis the season for all the bugs to come out. I was born and raised a city girl, so bugs and insects altogether make for my number one enemy. Also, they love to bite me, which is the icing on the cake. A lot of times, it is too hot outside! At least in the winter you can layer endlessly to become warm; you cannot strip any more than your underwear to become cool. Unless you can peel your skin off, which is impossible and won't really help the situation. Lastly, I frequently have nose bleeds and they're not fun.

Despite the reasons I have not to love summer, I still do. The days are longer and the nights are shorter. There are more people venturing outside, more children playing and laughing in the neighborhood, and basically, more fun and happiness. I would tell the Pink Ladies that it really is love at first sight once summer starts to show up. It is something to look forward to every single year, don't you think so?

Love,
Allyssa
