Date check: 27th of September, 2017.
With only a couple more months (or weeks, hopefully) left, the chilly season would again reveal itself. Winter is undoubtedly fast- approaching. Oh what a joy, and like almost everyone else living here in the sandbox a.k.a. the UAE, I can't wait!
I can't wait until it gets cold, and I mean cold, to the point when I can literally see my breath. I can't wait until I get to roam the streets wearing at least three layers of clothing. I can't wait for the rain and thunderstorms, and I can't wait until my family and I can actually get in the car (and not die due to extreme heat) after leaving it out in the sun for an hour.
I hear a lot of people — mostly coming from cold places — say that they love summer in Dubai. Please note that they usually visit the UAE during months like February, March, or October. They stay for a month or two, then they leave. Hey, if you think that is heat, you're seriously missing something here. That is not heat. That is not summer in Dubai. You wanna know what summer in Dubai feels like? Come visit in May, June, or July!
It's not a secret that Summer in Dubai is super extreme and intense. (I used all the strong adjectives!) But just like how summer is an extremity in this country, so is Winter. I'm probably my happiest during the cold season, and whenever I look back and compare both seasons, I am without a doubt, more productive during the winter. I study more, I do more chores, I socialize more, and I live more! I hate to say this, but during summer, I always tend to laze around instead of doing something worth it, something productive,
It is just too hot to function!
If winter was a place, I would call it my happy place. If winter was a food, it would obviously be my favorite food. And if it were a place, I would immediately go get a plane ticket, board the fasting plane, and be there in an instant.
So winter, please do me a favor and come sooner.!
