Hello there, I’m here to talk about January which in my opinion is the least eventful month on our 12 month calendar. Now I bet you’re asking why did you bother to write a whole article on this useless topic and to that I say, it’s a boring month and there hasn’t been anything in my mind to write about lately so onward with my “Evidence” of January being boring. Do keep in mind that this is my opinion.

First off, there’s only one day off this month, which is Martin Luther King, Jr. day. We would at least want another day off if possible. Most people just got off of a long and eventful winter break and everyone would be miserable coming back to school with their broken sleep schedules. (I know some of you stay up until 1-3 am. You cannot hide from me.)

Secondly, this month has some of the most miserable weather known to man. The snow is too hard to roll up into a neat snowman, not malleable enough to clump into a snowball. It’s somehow cold enough to cause the most slippery ice on sidewalks and even roads. During this month it’s just the right amount  to make it feel like the Alaskan tundra in a shirt but if you wear a sweater it becomes hotter than the core of the sun. It’s just unnatural how this type of temperature is possible.

I just don’t like this month man, it’s not eventful and it’s boring as heck. But then again your birthday could be in this month so maybe it’s alright but I don’t know that ¯\_(ツ)_/¯ . Also do keep in mind that this is the opinion of a silly fella, I don’t really hate this month it’s just that it is uneventful as heck and I needed something to write about.
