Summer is just one of those seasons that you have to brace yourself for. But let's be real here: even if you think you're prepared for summer, you truly aren't. You can slap on all the sunblock you want and crank up the A/C, but you're never really ready for it when the heat starts to slap.

And then there's a Texas summer.

Now, don't get me wrong - Alabama summers were hot. But I'm not sure I'm ready for a Texas summer. Heck, we're under a heat advisory right now at the time of writing.

If you're even seen me, I'm a tiny individual. Which means I can't hold any heat. So when a building is cold, I'll be shivering. So at the station, I'm basically bundled up because we have to keep the equipment frosty.

Stepping into 100 degree while in jeans and a sweatshirt isn't fun to say the least.

But for others, simply wearing a shirt and shorts still doesn't make it easy. Take TikTok user Lauren Compton, for example:

This...tracks on all levels. I mean, I feel this. Literally there have been times where I've wanted to check the mail and it feels 25 miles away in the heat when it's like a 2 minute walk.

Also this begs the question of how does anyone survive this season? I'm already afraid of getting into my car when it's in the direct sunlight!

Maybe it's time to invest in a sunscreen. That or a fan that I carry with me at all times. Not sure which one comes first.
