summer used to be defined as being done with school for a solid 3 months. but now that i’ve graduated how do i know it’s summertime? i’ve been thinking a lot about this, and here is a list of the tell tales signs that i’ve come up with :

– 80% of your jeans mysteriously get transformed into shorts
– day drinking becoming a much more prominent activity throughout all days of the week
– there is a constant craving for mexican ice waters/micheladas/margaritas/mojitos
– sun tea can be found in the fridge at all times
– arnold palmers become the lunchtime drink of choice
– the amount of sweating that you do multiplies, specifically that elbow/behind the knees area…you know what i’m talkin’ about
– funny tan lines begin to emerge
– guys suddenly stop wearing shirts while riding their bikes, or just altogether
– porch sitting becomes a more frequent activity
– movie nights return with a vengeance
– the frequencies of barbecues increases dramatically
– raspados become a staple to ones diet
– the good ol’ swamp cooler gets turned back on
– the hair dryer can be put away, all you have to do now is step outside for about 5 minutes
– and my personal favorite, the tucson summer sky.

how does it do that?

also- anything i’m missing?

**addendum to list!

– all the college kids the clog the streets, bars, coffee shops are GONE. gone! gone! gone!                                          – eegee’s become a staple to your diet, as do watermelons
– you can leave your bike lights on your bike and know that the odds of them getting stolen are slim to none
– crickets slowly become a background noise for the next few months
