    This is only the second year that I've lived in Canada so already I have to deal with being a "new kid" in school. But my parents are scared that the cold Canadian weather will literally kill me so they force to bundle up in so much winter gear that I get made fun of for it. It's only October and when I go outside my parents make me wear huge winter boots, snow pants, a long down jacket, and an enormous parka that's so thick and bulky that I can barely move in it. I also have to wear a toque, a scarf wrapped all around my face up, dorky looking kittens, and both of my hoods up. This is how I have to dress when I walk to school!

    Lmao I remember those days, my parents were the exact same way. All I wanted to do was wear a Halloween costume one year without a snowsuit :cry:

    I wish I could wear long underwear instead of snow pants and only one coat. My parents think I need all this winter gear to stay warm and every time I tell them that I'm way too warm wearing all this they just tell me to stop complaining.

    I love cold weather. It’s funny, if there’s even a slight breeze, all these California snowflakes throw enough winter gear for a blizzard in Antarctica.

    I honestly don't know if I would rather wear something like that, or all the heavy outerwear I'm forced to wear now!

    IMG_0507.JPG This is my parka, my parents bought it a few sizes too big so that I can wear another coat under it, so when I wear it the bottom goes below my knees.

    Thanks but I honestly don't feel cute when I'm all bundled up.
