I really, really hate all my clothes at the moment. Well, maybe hate is a bit too strong a word. But I definitely have an occasional, irrational urge to just burn all my clothes. I’m just so bored with my wardrobe. My winter wardrobe, that is.
What? It’s spring? Getting sunny and warm? Oh please! I’m in Finland: Mother Nature may just decide to dump a fresh load of snow on us on a whim, April or not… And sure, we do get sunny days, lots of them. But they’re usually accompanied by balmy temperatures of 5 °C(= 41 °F) or so this time of the year…
So, to say I’m ready for some warmer weather would be an understatement… And at this point I’m really struggling to come up with new outfits. And that’s why I keep wearing the same clothes all the time. Dressing up is such a hassle, what with the weather being so moody (snow / rain / cold / windy or all of the above) and all. Really, why bother?
I’ve never understood why people complain about ‘the cold, dark autumn’. I’ve always found spring a million times more depressing. I mean, you think it’s finally getting warmer, and the sun is shining, and a moment later you’re suddenly knee deep in snow. Or it’s raining all the time, whatever.
I guess what I’m trying to say is spring doesn’t inspire me at all (for the record: I love autumn).
I do look forward to summer, of course, eventually. But for now, I’m suffering from kevätväsymys. Yes, that’s a word. It’s Finnish, and it means getting a bit depressed and tired in spring. It has something to do with adjusting to the increasing light after the long, dark winter. And I’ve decided to make the most of it. So, it’s OK to feel uninspired and bored, and it’s OK to wear the same clothes all the time.
I’ll get my groove back, of course. I promise. As soon as the temperature hits double digits… (yes, Mother Nature, that was a hint…)
