We have quite the weekend ahead of us. I’m only back from Palm Beach six days tomorrow and already I am planning my next excursion for memorial day weekend. I am a sucker for any location on the beach and thats where I am heading. My grandparents on my fathers side have a home on Long Beach Island,N.J. I grew up summering there with my family. I have such an attachment to the island because of how happy I felt whenever I could escape the day to day of my life and spend some time in such a beautiful place. Beautiful surroundings are really very important to me. Thats why I love spending as much of my winters in Florida as I can manage; I cant stand how terribly depressing New Jersey is during the winter season. There’s no glamour to it, its just darkness and sadness.
My grandparents have a stunning oceanfront home on the shore, its everything that I love. The funny thing about the house though is the air conditioning situation. My fathers side of the family doesn't enjoy the cold. My dad can barely breath at nice if the air is too high, and my grandparents don't mind the heat. They are old-school Italians who don't let much bother them. Im quite jealous of this mindset to be perfectly honest. But, I cant really change the fact that I am very bothered by almost everything! I get annoyed when my manicure isn't perfect, I cant stand manual labor, If my grades in school aren't perfect Im ready to shoot somebody, and if I am slightly hot I instantly grow enraged. I start to panic whenever I get too hot. I hate to sweat and I hate being uncomfortable. I spent so much of my early life having to deal with discomfort that now I have no tolerance for it. So imagine me in an un-airconditioned house in the dead heat of summer, it sure ain’t pretty! Even when the air is on I am so much warmer than everybody else and its never cool enough for me. The other part of my “heat issues” is that I can not stand short sleeve shirts. They are fine for other people, but they look just awful on me! I wear long sleeve shirts year round. So I admit that I am only adding to my issues here with being hot. But, I'm ridiculous and I accept that. I head down to the beach house with my sisters and cousins tomorrow afternoon, so stay tuned for more stories to follow!
