It Was Hot Today, Day

Hi Day,

I understand that with my geographical location, you will be providing many warm- to hot-temperature days. So, I don’t know if you were angry, but it was quite hot today, Day.

Neither the wind that would occasionally blow through my windows nor the two electric fans pointed directly toward my body alleviated the heat I was enduring. Granted, having an AC would’ve most likely lessened the heat, but I do not have one, nor do I plan to get one anytime soon.

This reminds me of that one week in the Bay Area where we experienced an intense heatwave. Well, today felt like that very same weeklong wave but all concentrated into one day.

It was not enjoyable.

I guess I can’t put all the blame on you for today, Day. I mean, I did just come from an extremely cold-weathered city, and it’s been years since I’ve stepped foot into your 80 to 90-degree home.

My body needs to remember your temperatures again, and I hope it happens soon. Although I don’t think I could ever get used to tropical climates, even though I’ve lived in one for the majority of my life. If I’m being honest, I quite highly prefer cooler temperatures.

I digress.

Day, aside from the humid temperature, I was feeling okay, to say the least. I think I’m still trying to grasp this whole move and get used to actually moving again.

I know it’ll take another couple of weeks to actually feel some sort of freedom, seeing as the cases so coincidentally began rising here days before I was set to arrive and still continue to rise.

How lovely – please note the sarcasm.

I do appreciate that my days are now surrounded by greenery again. After living in the city for about five years, I realized in the second year that I was most definitely not a city girl. I need nature within feet away from me – the forest or the beach especially would work wonders.

Nonetheless, I appreciate you today, and every day, Day. No matter what challenge I’m going through or what the weather is like – I woke up to see you again, Day.

I am constantly given chances to make the most out of you and to appreciate the time that you offer. There are days when I wish you’d last more than 24 hours, but last I checked that’s not how science works (even with the whole Daylight Savings Time).

Before today ends, thank you, Day.

Thank you for arriving and for slowing things down a bit. Thanks for not making me look at the clock every couple of minutes because of how productive you’ve been. Though there might not be as many days of you in a row (which I’ll be happy to not have extremely hot weather multiple days in a row), I’m grateful to experience the many versions of you.

I look forward to the other days you’ll be bringing.

Keep being inspired and take care always,
