Living in California certainly has more pro’s than con’s. However, the occasional heat wave is enough to get every Californian sweaty and irritated. It is particularly frustrating as a student, because we have to dress for the heat, get from class to class in the heat, and sleep in the heat…without air conditioning. It isn’t that I don’t like warm weather, I do! But when it gets to a temperature when it is too hot to be outside, sleep, or be productive, it becomes a bit of an issue. The best way to beat the heat is to drink lots of water, dress appropriately, and wear some SPF. Chances are the heat wave will pass in a few days, so try not to let it drag you down and make the most of it!
