Ah, spring! The season that brings increasing daylight and warmer temperatures! A couple of weekends ago we were gifted with a little teaser of what it’s like when the sun comes out. But now spring is actually here! March 20th signifies the beginning of spring and with it will come expectations, societal changes and an overwhelming need to fixate on the weather forecast more than normal.
Activities that people turned their noses up at a few weeks ago are now considered standard behaviour so jump on the spring bandwagon and indulge in the following...
LACK OF CLOTHING:
After Christmas many people will have been putting in the hours down the gym precisely for this moment. It doesn’t take much for the most vain individuals to decide the rest of the world simply must see their chiseled torso or toned legs and spring is the perfect showcase to show off your new physique. Summer dresses, brightly colored t-shirts, short shorts, flip-flops and vests will dominate wardrobes for the foreseeable future, while knitwear is discarded like a flyer for some new band you've never heard of.
TAKE UP A SPORT:
Occasional sportspeople get to come out of the woodworks and dominate local football goals, tennis courts, or any available space for an ill-fated game of rounders.
USE YOUR GARDEN:
With the frequently changing weather it can be a risky strategy but drying your clothes outside and succeeding is a good feeling. It’s also an excuse to get some new clothes as your snooping neighbours will probably look at your existing stuff and pass judgement. You may also start doing weird things like getting a book and actively wanting to sit outside rather than on the sofa.
