The Detrimental Sun
I live in sunny southern California, and I find it difficult to live here because I can not have a normal social life. While most people my age are hanging out and having a good time, I am secluded. I have been like this for 5 years now and my entire family recognizes me as a reclusive person. I do not care what people think of me at this point because avoiding the sun is extremely important. When I go to school I wear a hoodie and pants, but only when the sun is out. It does not matter what season it is, I will cover my entire body if the sun is out. When clouds are thick and grey to cover the entire sky, I find so much relieve to wear shorts and a t shirt with light shoes like sandals, and to let the rain wet my cold pale skin. It sounds crazy, but I love the cold because it numbs my hands and face. It reminds me about the feeling of being drunk off beer outside on a chilly night with friends. I am a fun person at heart, so this annual plot builds to its peek when the Winter season arrives to show my character in all of its glory. I know it sounds ridiculous, but I find people looking at me with curiosity towards this wondrous moment.
