reasons fall sucks.

I touched upon this in an earlier post but I felt the need to elaborate. I’m probably not going to convince anyone that I’m right about fall (unless you already hate it like I do), but that isn’t my mission anyway. I just enjoy expressing my feelings… in a bitchy way.

reasons fall sucks.

1. The kids are back in school. My daughter, especially, has been in a ‘mom-phase‘. We spent a huge amount of time together this summer. I’m going to miss that.

2. I have too much alone time. That means my brain works overtime… creating all sorts of worst-case scenarios. That means I am a huge mess.

3. It is not even September yet and the school supplies are already being cleared out for Halloween stuff and Christmas stuff, for fuck’s sake! I hate Christmas. But that’s a whole different list. I think I’ve even made one before. Maybe I will make another one. I’m probably going to repeat myself. Deal with it.

4. Enough with the pumpkin spice shit already! First of all, pumpkin is gross. Does all this pumpkin spice crap taste like pumpkin? Or is it just the ‘spice‘ part that’s in these flavored things? I’ve never been clear on that. But no matter. It has gone way overboard. I already want it to go away. They have pumpkin spice Frosted Flakes now. Don’t fuck with my Frosted Flakes, dammit. Is nothing sacred?

5. My tan is already fading. I know… the sun is bad for my skin. Whatever. I know… terrible attitude. I don’t care… I look better with a tan.

6. At some point, sooner than I would like, I’m going to have to stop wearing sandals. I love sandals. I hate socks. Don’t get me started on socks with sandals. What the fuck is that?? (Apparently, it’s all the rage in middle school…)

But wearing sandals isn’t over yet… since this happened today (yeah, my car thinks ‘outside’ is two words)…


7. The days are getting shorter… and darker. Some say fall is pretty, and it can be. But really, everything is just dying. Including my soul.

Okay, I’ll give you this…

reasons fall is good.

1. apple cider donuts.

the end.

    I like Fall for the weather being cooler and some seasonal events. I am not a fan of Summer because of the heat.

    Fall is my FAVORITE season. I LOVE all the school supplies and pumpkin EVERYTHING… And the pretty leaves. And the pretty jackets… Sigh! I wait all year for fall. In Michigan, if you blink you might miss it. Some years we seem to go straight from summer to snow and ice. YUCK!!!

    • I used to like fall but it’s sooo depressing to me now. Maybe I have S.A.D. Losing daylight brings me down so much… I end up crying a lot. It just feels so… dead.

      I live in New England and people come from all over to see the leaves. It’s pretty, I guess, but then it’s all dead. Spring… when everything comes alive and blooms… that’s my favorite.

      And I hate pumpkin! lol

  6. Hey man, I’m right there with you 3, 4, 5, 6, and 7. I do like Halloween though. And it’s sentimental because of when we first started dating. But 3-7? I with all that. 😃

    • I like Halloween candy. 🙂 I enjoyed the day itself more when I was younger. Maybe if I had friends and plans, I’d like it again.

      I’m glad someone gets me. 😏

      • Oh, my costume partying days are likely over, and the boys don’t trick or treat anymore. But I still like it. We don’t get any trick or treaters at our house either, but I still buy the candy for me. Reese’s, snickers, smarties, and even whoppers. I like it all…except for those god foresaken orange and black taffy things. Those are horrible.

    I feel you on the pumpkin spice thing! OMG I hate it! I don’t even like pumpkin pie. I will eat one slice at Thanksgiving just because it’s Thanksgiving but that’s it. GROSS.

    And can your list of good things include apple cider AND donuts or just apple cider flavoured donuts? lol

    • Sure… cider and donuts. Hot cider, even. Yum. I won’t go near pumpkin pie. Ick! I always bring at least one dessert to Thanksgiving… and it’s NOT pumpkin pie!

        We don’t do big family Thanksgivings anymore. I’m sure if either my brother or I ever get married that will change but right now it’s just the 4 family members. But if aunt used to always bring this AMAZING cheesecake to Thanksgiving so I’d have that. I make it myself now hehe I should again soon cos I’ve been craving it

    I hate the pumpkin spice stuff too. I devoted at least two posts to my disdain for it. And the extent of it is ridiculous! Ah, well as for fall, I will not miss sweating, but I will miss the longer days. It does get depressing when the sun sets so early. Nevertheless bring on the jeans and sweaters!

    • As I do not “do” shorts, I’ve been wearing cropped jeans all summer. With sandals, obviously. 🙂 Actually, when it gets colder and I need “whole pants”, I’m in trouble because the ones I have are all too big and I’m going to look like a bag lady. No offense to bag ladies.

      I do like putting on a nice sweater though. I have many cardigans. Some even fit!

  11. I do like pumpkin cheesecake. Not much on the flavored coffee though. I just saw a meme for pumpkin spice xanax for seasonal disorders. Made me laugh! I would include it here for you but — I don’t know how! Sorry

  14. Once you put it this way yeah fall kinda sucks. Leaves are fucking everywhere and it’s still 95 degrees. I was in Wal-Mart yesterday and I was pissed at the winter shit everywhere. Shaking my head. I’m sorry the kids are back in school. I know it makes things rough for you. (((Hugs)))

  15. I’m just here to say that I hate sandals and that I’m so glad that summer ended here a month ago. I hate having to see people’s feet. So, I guess I’m Team Fall 😏

    • Haha… I don’t pay attention to other feet… just my own. And I love sandals. But… I admit that I have enjoyed wrapping up in a nice sweater over the last few days…

      • I’m hyper aware of other people’s feet for whatever reason. I get so frustrated when people leave the house with dry feet with visible dead skin or cracked heels… Like fair enough, a pedicure is time consuming but slapping some Vaseline overnight would make them presentable for a day at least. It makes me irrationally angry. Men should also just refrain from open toed shoes FOREVER. Ick! LOL. I have a very real foot phobia. I hate my own feet.

        Sweaters are nice but I can’t even wear those half of the time. Only at home… I’m one of those weirdos who is always boiling… perks of being a chub chub 😂
