This morning my alarm yelled at me to wake up.
Having barely slept the night before, I could hardly handle the thought of dragging my body to my early morning English class.
Outside my window the wind howled and snowflakes flung themselves in every direction. Needless to say, I put my tired head back under my covers and fell back asleep.
Life changes when it gets this cold. I avoid walking outside, I forget fashion altogether and bundle myself like a snowman, and I find myself leaving my heels safely tucked away in my closet to avoid icy accidents on the sidewalk.
I stay alive with the blue skies and sunny days. The snow shines and glitters in the sun, making chapped lips and dry hands worthwhile.
And I can always count on the warmth of good roomates, hot meals infused with spices, interesting classes at school (that I manage not to sleep through), and as a single girl in the city, the gaze of a beautiful stranger can warm me up anyday.
I've even decided to continue spending my weekends in the heat of the restaurant as a hostess, under the agreement that I'll be trained as a bartender in summer and that I work one less night a week.
January was bitter cold, but if I have anything to say about it, things will start to heat up this month.
