Exactly, how else are they supposed to know you REALLY wanna go there??
(also if it wasn't clear from this statement and as I've mentioned ITT a few times I'm currently a UG in Ann Arbor so if anybody has any questions about the town or the University as a whole I'm always down to talk Michigan. Also the law quad had been under construction for months and it's really taking away from the aesthetic)
On a scale of 1-10 how cold would you say you are on a regular basis?
edit: 10 is really cold
This is actually an interesting question because my freshman year and this year there have been polar vortexes but my sophomore and junior years it was uncharacteristically warm. I'm from NY so it's not like I'd ever experienced prolonged periods of warm or cold so I think I'm a decent measurement.
Honestly in the two years that it's been particularly cold I find that your get used to it pretty quickly. I've gotten to the point where it can be like 15-20 degrees out and I make the 5-10 minute walk to the gym wearing shorts. In general when it gets really cold (like single digits) that's when I wear long underwear and a trapper hat and I'm usually good.
It’s comforting to hear it is easy to get used to! We’ve had one of the coldest winters where I live in Texas but I’ve found ive been the warmest I have ever been simply by getting better winter clothes. Made my spouse and I go walk around in 20 degree weather and freezing rain and once we were dressed appropriately it really wasn’t that bad. Going back up to the 40s a few days later we were like, oh, this really isn’t so bad.
I’m about to go to Chicago for work in a week, so extra opportunity to test out my winter gear and see how it holds up!
