Well my friends, November is upon us and that means one thing. The worst month of the year has officially begun.
Everyone has a particular time of the year they hate. For some people it's the last day of summer, for others it may be Valentine's Day, but for me and for many other people, the worst by far is the month of November.
Everything was beautiful and colorful only a few weeks ago, but now it's just rainy, dark, and boring.
In case you happen to disagree, give me a chance to explain why November is the worst and I'm sure that by the end of this article, it will be your most hated month as well.
1. The Weather Hates Us
Have you taken a look outside lately? It's been grey for 2 weeks now and it's going to stay that way all through November. The sky just looks like a sad, pale mess. Every morning a new shitty surprise awaits you: It's either raining or freezing or both.
2. The Sun Is Giving Us The Middle Finger
One of the worst things about November is Daylight Savings. the sun doesn't rise so it's impossible to wake up feeling refreshed. and juts when you think you're getting used to it. DST kicks in to give you a month long feeling of being jet-lagged. get the least amount of sun exposure. It's like our bodies have no idea what time it is.
3. Death Is Everywhere
Is it just me, or does the whole city look like the set of a post apocalyptic movie right now? Everything look dead. The morning are foggy, the pretty leave are gone, the bare branches make everything look old and evil, the flower pots are empty, the grass has turned to mud and it the city looks just plain dirty.
4. Shit's About To Hit The Fan
November is the calm before the storm. It's a month full of promises of horrible things to come: Final exams, winter, seasonal expenses, holiday shopping, performance reviews at work. It's hard to stay positive and relaxed when you have such a massive "to-do" list built up.
5. The Holiday Chasm
In October the weather is crappy, but at least we have Halloween to look forward to. The decorations, costumes and candy really steal focus away from the shit that awaits us outside.
But now, Halloween is over and it's too early to talk about Christmas, so we can't even use that to cheer ourselves up.
