Chub rub. Thigh chafing. Hell. Whatever you call the horrible pain that is your thighs rubbing together whenever you move, it is the WORST. All hail the oncoming wave of jeans and tights.
Boob sweat. Granted, this doesn’t necessarily go away at the end of summer, but the amount of perspiring our jugs do in the cooler months is WAY lower than the constant dampness we have to suffer through in the summer.
Tan lines. Being beautifully bronzed is wonderful, but having wacky tan lines that make us regret buying that cute monokini last May is not.
Halloween. If you’d rather hang around in sweaty shorts and tank tops rather than dress up as a Spice Girl or a Flintstones character, are you really living your life right?
Cooler temperatures. This is an obvious one, but sweltering heat gets really old really fast. I long for the chilly breezes and sub-seventy temperatures of fall. I’m SO over sweat dripping into my buttcrack and behind my knees and in other ungodly places where I really shouldn’t sweat. Aren’t you?
Fall fashion. Who doesn’t love a good ankle boot or scarf? If I could go all year wearing blazers and jeans and trench coats, I honestly would.
I spend about 50% of my summer shaving my legs, and the other 50% is spent complaining about shaving my legs. I don’t have to pick up that razor as much after cutoff season is over.
Halloween. Again. It’s important, people.
Back to school shopping. Everyone always complains about having to go back to school, but everyone, whether they want to admit it or not, harbors a little love for picking out notebooks and highlighters. And if you’re in college? Don’t even get me started on shopping for the dorm. It’s like a drug to me.
And finally, the end of summer is just one step closer to being able to listen to THAT Mariah Carey Christmas song once December rolls around. And no, it is NOT too early to be thinking about Christmas.
Good luck with the rest of your summer, and don’t worry. The constant sweat and sunburn and mugginess will all be over soon. Fall is just around the corner!
