This time of year is always a struggle for me. Today has been particularly cold here in Sydney and we are having some rain as well. Now I know we need the rain as I don’t feel like we’ve had anywhere near enough this year, but I’m not really coping with it. Of course in a literal sense I am but I would MUCH rather it be warm and sunny.
I’m a solar powered creature and while I can cope with being cold, cold and wet makes me miserable. There are people in the office saying how much they love Winter and I have to stop myself from looking at them like they are fucking crazy. Sure, fashion in Winter is more glamorous and there are so many more options but if I had the option I’d be in a tank top or t-shirt and shorts, if I can’t be somewhere nude.
One of the guys in the office is off to Bali next week. I’ve been to Bali and don’t think I’ll go back but being somewhere warm and enjoying beers while naked in a private villa is exactly what I’m in the mood for. Now that I’ve decided that a European adventure is on the cards next year, all going to plan, that is keeping me going. It’s always good to have something like that to look forward to.
This week is the Winter Solstice here and even though we have more cold weather in the couple of months to come, knowing that the days are going to start getting ever so slightly longer and longer from this week on is a glimmer of light on my solar powered horizon.
