What’s better: being sweaty, or shivering? Do you prefer “Baby it’s cold outside,” sung by Dean Martin or “Summer breeze, makes me feel fine,” sung by Seals and Crofts? Funny how these are both involving the weather, but not everyone likes them equally. Some people prefer the cold weather and others prefer it being hot, so why is that?
Everyone has mixed emotions towards the cold weather, but some people definitely don’t enjoy it. For example, Mr. Palacios, an English teacher, says he doesn’t like the cold weather because of how it affects athletic activity. As he stated, “I remember playing baseball when I was younger and it was cold, and you couldn’t feel your hands. Your chest hurts, trying to catch the ball hurt, trying to throw the ball hurt, trying to hit the ball hurt. All I wanted to do was go home…” When it’s cold at school, it doesn’t really bother him because he spends most of his time in his classroom, but when he’s home he wants to stay inside under a blanket.
Others seem to enjoy the cold weather. It’s that time of the year to start layering your clothing. Grab yourself a hoodie, a blanket, make yourself some hot coffee or chocolate, turn on the T.V., and relax for a couple of hours on the couch. When it’s cold at home, most people want to make themselves warm and just relax, while watching T.V., and not move around too much. Jennah Shreim, a freshman, is proof of that. She states, “I’d rather put on a jacket then be sweating… if it was hot, you would be sweating, but when it's cold, you can just put on a sweater.” When it’s cold you can simply put on a sweater but when it’s hot you can’t do anything about it.
As you can see, there are many pros and cons to hot weather and cold weather. You may like the cold weather because it’s perfect for hot chocolate, and hot weather gives you the perfect excuse to go to the beach. Which one do you prefer? Let us know in the comments.
