One of the comments I got before coming to Boston was how much colder it is than Philadelphia and how much more snow I would see. Honestly I never understood that… Nemo was a pretty bad storm and we have gotten a lot of snow but I actually think we usually get more back home. It definitely does get colder here, but I also may think that because I used to run to and from my car where is in the city I walk everywhere. (Though while at work this past December the lock on the door froze on one of the company trucks and that blew my mind) But of course my senior winter here we get an intense amount of snow.
Snow days are always fun. The anticipation of whether or not Wentworth will call off classes and having that little bit more time to do homework, when lets face it you are just going to spend the day hanging out with friends watching movies and drinking tea. Now that I live off campus there is the fear of us loosing power and stocking up on food so you do not have to try to get to the insane grocery store before or during the storm. However, my room has three huge windows so I am able to open the blinds and lay in bed as the snow falls… it is like a fairytale. The little kid inside everyone comes out as you see grown college students playing in the snow and helping each other dig out their cars.
So far we have had three snow days and a late opening within six school days… I think I may be the only person who is sick of missing class! Even though it sucks to go out into the slushy roads to get to school I actually miss learning and being productive instead of trying to get homework done while Netflix and food calls my name. It was nice to be able to sleep in after staying up late to watch the pats game! I did buy a patriots shirt and wear it and my family did say that I am no longer part of the family since we are die-hard eagles fans! However there is a ton more snow coming our way and soon the piles on the sides of the roads will be taller than me (not THAT tall since I am 5’3″) and I will officially never want to see snow again in my lifetime.
