The cuddle weather looming on the horizon

At the end of last summer I was dreading the cold lonely days that we know as cuddle weather…. (for those of you who don’t, it consists of the late fall and early winter months). The calm air that slowly knocks the leaves one by one to the ground, informing us that winter will be approaching in only just a little while. What makes these months enjoyable, despite the fact that we are no longer sweating down our backs when we just step outside, is that we can take full advantage of the excuse of needing a cuddle buddy :3.
The reason why last year was a lonely cuddle weather for me, was because I was single, with no cuddle buddy in sight. It was mid fall when I had realized my true desire for a cuddle buddy, but at that point it was to late. Everyone had coupled up after their promiscuous summer days, and things fell back into a coupled cycle, everyone already having their cuddle buddy reserved.
My lack of a cuddle buddy made me feel lonely because I could only imagine the endless cuddle weather activities you could do with one :D. Like: sipping hot cocoa, sitting by the fire, cuddling anywhere (outside on a blanket, inside on a couch, or a bed, etc.), keeping each other warm ;), pretending to be arctic dragons that blow air (like when you blow air and you see your breath in the winter) instead of fire :p, going on walks only to come back to a warm house to defrost, watching movies snuggled up in a blanket, going to bonfires together, the options are limitless :).
I think I’ll end this post stating that I think we all learn something new every day given a minuscule event that may happen in our day. I say this because I learned a little tid bit of information today as a result of this post. I wasn’t quite sure what months went with each season, so I googled it :). I learned that fall consists of: September, October, and November. Winter: december, January, February. Spring: March, April, may. Summer: June, July, and August. (just in case you didn’t know that :p).

Bring on the cuddle weather :3!!!

Our frustration

It completely baffles me at how bothered or impatient I get waiting for my IPod touch to update, YouTube video to load, and other laggy kinds of tasks that electronics have to complete. There I am just staring at this darn piece of work and I’m just thinking “why can’t you give me a while on that google page before you decide I can’t look at it anymore. Jeez!! I could totally retain all the information from all those sites and repeat it to you in a second. But no you’re just my wimpy little iPod touch that can’t stay on one task without blacking out because of all the ‘pressure’. You’re like some bottle blonde crash dieter who forgot to eat her lunch that consists of two crackers!!”
Then I thought of it this way….
Say you were the fastest sprinter that held the world record for running like 300 yards in 15 seconds (idk even know if that’s physically possible, but let’s just go with those numbers for now). After you just topped all those old records you feel on top of the world, you made a record that until the second it is conquered, is impossible for any one to beat. Sadly it’s just not good enough, your trainer, coach, whatever, tells you you’re going to run 600 yards in the same exact time it took for 300 yards. It’s crazy right!! You are astonished at what you do, yet you just can’t please the fans.
Well that same kind of insane expectations are just like the ones we put on our electronics. The normal YouTube video for a song with ever changing slides with lyrics on them and a soundtrack playing in the back is usually 2-3 minutes long. It loads pretty fast, in a matter of seconds, yet some see those micro seconds as seconds of their lives wasted waiting. But wait, then after our perfect little devices shoot out video after video in a matter of seconds we just think “yes my minion, yes -_-. Good kitty”. Then your precious little computer kitty stops to purr and switches to irritable computer kitty (like an actual cat changes its mood). The billionth video isn’t loading for you and you look at it with that disapproving stare “how dare you get over whelmed with all the different computer codes, ever changing genres of songs, lyrics, soundtracks, or video commercials!!”
Back to my sprinting example…it’s similar to when we go from a 3 minute lyrics video of a song we like, then go to a totally new song (stairway to heaven maybe? Lol) about double the length of the last video and expect it to load up just as fast with ease and no lags.
All I can say is our poor devices….
