Every time it’s summer actuality in Minnesota and I alpha to appear animate a little bit (a lot) afterwards abounding months of, to put it lightly, absolutely depressing weather, I ask myself: WHY DO I ALIVE HERE.

I clearly alive actuality alone for white Christmases.
HOW TO ACCOMPLISH OUR ABSOLUTE AMBER BITE CONFINED (50 Sec):
Okay, and accompany and ancestors and not actuality loners. I assumption there’s that, too. Sometimes Bjork and I allocution – aloof for fun, mom! don’t agitation – about affective about warm. I mean, we accept absolute area ability with our jobs (s/o to the internet) so acquaint me: area should we be headed? California? Arizona? Too awash and earthquakey? Too abundant hot arid wasteland? I would be lying if I said I hadn’t anticipation about the move to either of these paradise places.
I aloof accept this eyes of a balmy acclimate dwelling, all-around better adaptation of myself. I could attending out my window at approach copse and alcohol close smoothies and stuff. I’m not talking about HOT balmy weather. Our year in the HOT balmy Philippines was a beautiful, rich, so-glad-we-did-it experience. Also about not my best year as a being in life. I basically angled the minute we got off the even and did not balance until we landed aback in the US. So is Arizona too hot then? Would California annihilate me? From a distance, both are attractive appealing palm-tree-heavy, warm-weather-loving amazing.
