Awkward Girl is slowly melting

If my hands dissolve into a pool of sweat all over my keyboard before I finish this, I’m sorry…

I know I have not posted in a while, and I am terribly sorry about that. I know you all just live to hear about all of my awkward encounters. But you see, I’ve recently been immobilized. Paralyzed. Destabilized.

Because…it is so damn hot!

Now you can judge all you want, but I happen to live in a very beautiful place where the temperature is never supposed to exceed 75 degrees. I have been blessed with this picturesque weather, but it left me utterly unprepared for the heat wave that just smothered the whole town. The highs are in the 90s, and its like all of sudden, no one knows what to do with themselves.

And we are not equipped to deal with it. Its 70 degrees year round, we don’t need air conditioning! Until now. I sit in class, feeling the sweat slowly drip down my back and the heavy air crushing me. I can’t breathe. I can’t think! How am I supposed to learn in this environment!

And I can’t bring myself to do anything. Its like I’ve entered survival mode, and the only thing my brain can think about is how to get cool.

Open the window…

Turn the fan on…

Sit as close to the fan as possible…

Closer…

Roll up shirt…

Tie up hair…

Hold water bottle to neck…

Drink water…

Become frustrated…

Violently open water bottle and dump water onto your chest…

Realize you’ve made a mess…

Clean up mess…

Sit back down…

Realize you are still hot…

Cry.

Laugh all you want people, but the fact of the matter is, Awkward Girl does not know how to deal with this heat, and it is only making me more awkward. I’m only a faction of my real self. I shuffle around campus with my head down like a zombie, and it takes all my will power not to shout “I’M MELTING!”
