Almost every year, I change my mind about what season is my favorite here at Penn. However, with the weather being so beautiful lately, I have decided that I am in love with spring.
There’s something special about how all of a sudden the cold, dreary winter weather is replaced by bursts of sunshine and temperatures in the mid 70s. The entire demeanor of the campus changes for the better.
People spend their afternoons outside, attempting to study or just throwing a Frisbee around College Green. The flowers begin to bloom and robins can be found chattering in the treetops.
Unfortunately, I still have midterms to study for and papers to write. But the warmer weather makes walking to class that much more enjoyable. To be honest, the unseasonably nice weather is slightly absurd, seeing as it is only mid-March. However, I’m not going to question it! Instead, I’m going to grab my cognitive neuroscience textbook and an iced skinny vanilla latte and soak up the sun.
