Freezing COLD!

‘DID YOU SIGN UP’ for this?

Oh jeez! I know I didn’t! Being an International student, commuting around to get and/or do things is as challenging as it gets. And with these extreme temperatures only added to the dull mood. But it was quite an experience.

My parents, family and friends were so psyched to hear from me about this cold climate. For an hour or two there I was the celebrity of the fam! “Why aren’t you wrapped up in blanket?”, “Does boiling water turn to vapor?” and many similar questions were thrown at me. I simply enjoyed responding. The idea of a heater or centralized heating system is so farcical for people back home that I literally had to explain it to my little brother.

Born and raised in India, my body was alien to the weather and conditions here. I believe it has adapted a bit in the last years to retain more heat, but I still get really cold, really fast. To be fair, I was more anxious than anything else. The anticipation of this cold setting in had me nervous. However, I survived. I will remember and cherish being a part of this hyped climatic change.

Now I can proudly announce that I survived the Polar Vortex!
