March – the worst month?

Give January some love!!!

Gabe Josefowicz, Student Writer

Contrary to popular belief, I think that March is the worst month of the year, not January.

I feel that March has been overlooked for being the worst month of the year because there is nothing fun about January; it’s right after the holiday season, it’s cold, and just the word January sounds dark and gloomy. But, have we ever considered March? I think some people could argue that March is one of the best months, but I like to argue that it is one of the worst, if not the worst month of the year.

You know March just makes me angry to begin with in all honesty. It’s like the halfway point to Spring. Some years we get three feet of snow and others it’s 60 degrees. Or, the more common occurrence – snow Saturday and 62 degrees on Tuesdays, followed by my next favorite thing – allergy season. Everyone that sneezes from pollen will know what I’m talking about. The pain and suffering of the beginning of allergy season.

Here’s another thing with the weather. At this point, I am extremely sick of wearing pants. I am unaware if I am the only person with this problem and I love pants. It’s just the feeling like “Hey, it’s March now, wheres the warm weather?” Then all of a sudden – a massive blizzard.

You wake up in the morning and it’s 30 degrees outside, so you dress warmly. Then in the afternoon, you go outside and it’s 60 with the sun beating down on you. So there you are with your winter coat on thinking to yourself,  “Do I really want to stop walking and take this coat off and carry it, or do I power through it and start sweating?” But then you see everyone wearing shorts as well and you are in jeans and still have this three-inch-thick coat on. So, after walking for a while you decide to take it off considering there is now sweat dripping down your face, and of course, it’s a struggle. Your back is bent and you cant get your one arm out. It’s horrible, to say the least, and awful to say the most. Now everyone is looking at you and you just start walking again with your coat hanging half off your body

Now aside from all of those fun things March is the month where I start to get very anxious with school. It’s like school is going to be over soon but not really. The non-school days even seem to drag. Just the word March is giving me a headache. I just can’t wait for it to be April when I see March 1st on the calendar.

Now what makes it even worse is I will always affiliate March with Covid -which just ruins it even more for me. Every time I hear the word March and Corona in the same sentence my head starts to pound. Actually right now my head just hurts thinking about it.

Is March that bad or is it me? Maybe, just maybe, after reading this, you will agree with me!
