As some of you may know, I live pretty near the Tropic of Cancer, and summer's really kicking in. Temperatures are fluctuating between the late 20s and early 30s (we use the metric system). We turn on the fan all the time (although the one in my room doesn't always work...)

How's it going in your area?

It's adorable that you think that's very hot :)

Average 35 degrees. Max 38-39.

Meh, the post was written to a mostly Western audience.

I suppose that's normal in India. We only get those temperatures for a week or so every year though.

On a related note, has anyone noticed that on the average, winters are getting nicer (there are always exceptions like this year for us, but I mean on average) while summers are getting worse?

Around 80-90 degrees Fahrenheit.

Eh. It's 80 here and it doesn't feel all that terribly hot.

I think it depends on stuff other than temperature... it doesn't always feel hot here, either. You'll feel hotter when you're between buildings than when you're in the park, for example.

And I'm not really complaining about the heat per se - I can stand that really. I'm mostly unhappy about my sweating, as I dislike getting all sticky...

Yesterday in Eugene the pollen count was 850, which is nearly five times what's considered " very high." Today it's "only" 250. Oh, and the temp is supposed to get to 98 today. Things are pretty bad.

This may sound counterproductive, but have you tried wearing clothing that covers most of the body (pants and long-sleeve shirts)?

I never wear shorts, though my mum will kill me if I wear long-sleeve shirts lol... (Except at home - I'm almost naked when I'm at home lol...) Do you sweat less in them?

Lol wow, 98... We usually don't get that until we're really deep in summer, and it doesn't last more than a week. Has it always been like this, or was it better when you were little? Could it be global warming/urban heat islands aggravating the situation?

I'm not sure what the significance of the pollen count is lol... I guess I'm just too much of an urban dweller to know about nature stuff.

What I find is that while long clothing is associated with being hotter, it can block out the heat. This applies especially to pants. Wear somewhat baggy pants (with a belt, of course) that aren't too thick. Thin, semi-lightweight materials are best. Like a typical jacket.
Of course, if you try this and find that it's a load of bull, you're perfectly free to try something else.

The best response to sweat, of course, is to make sure you shower once a day.

It usually gets this hot for only a few days a year. Idk if things have gotten worse over the years or if it's always been like this.

If you have allergies, it means you're basically sick until the pollen dies down, which can take months.

Haha, thanks. I don't have a real problem with my legs sweating, actually (and I always wear pants anyhow). I sometimes wear jackets when I go home (because the air conditioning at school is pretty darn cold and I go home by rail, which is also air-conditioned). I always find myself sweating buckets after walking home from the station (which isn't a particular long path)... so I'm not sure if it will help much. But thanks for the suggestion anyway (it could be that my jacket simply isn't thin enough!)

Lol I'm aware of pollen allergies but I didn't know it was this bad... Possibly because I don't know anyone who's told me he has such allergies, or because there simply aren't enough flowers around here to be a problem (most flowers here grow on trees...)

How's it going in your area?

Was rainy and cloudy through the near entirety of May, just now the summer weather is kicking in. I had to create a new unit of heat for this phenomena, the Emma Watson.

Right now the weather is roughly 0.45 Watson today, pretty hot if you ask me.

It's adorable that you think that's very hot :)

Average 35 degrees. Max 38-39.

Last time my province had weather like that a massive forest fire burned down most of Fort McMurray.

Right now the weather is roughly 0.45 Watson today, pretty hot if you ask me.
And in Celsius?

How's it going in your area?

It's adorable that you think that's very hot :)

Average 35 degrees. Max 38-39.

Last time my province had weather like that a massive forest fire burned down most of Fort McMurray.

Was it natural or did some idiot start the fire?

^In retrospect that was a pretty dumb question, since we probably don't have an answer

Likely natural given the scale but I heard it may have had something to do with a guy dropping his cigarette in the dry grass.

Was rainy and cloudy through the near entirety of May, just now the summer weather is kicking in. I had to create a new unit of heat for this phenomena, the Emma Watson.
lol...
Right now the weather is roughly 0.45 Watson today, pretty hot if you ask me.
And in Celsius?

24 degrees Celsius (Supossed to be up to 30 by Monday)

Let's meet at 30 then :P

24 is nice... I like everything from 20 to 25, and the more a temperature is away from this range, the less I like it...

I live in Auburn, Alabama, and it's currently 28 here. But, after Sunday, all of the temperatures for the next eight days are supposed to be in the 30s, and one day, it's even supposed to get up to 36. What's worse is the humidity is always very high, so it usually feels at least 3 or 4 degrees hotter than it really is.
I'm becoming less defined as days go by, fading away, and well you might say, I'm losing focus, kinda drifting into the abstract in terms of how I see myself.
