I remember growing up I never wore sleeves in school or in school period, I honestly hated it. Even when it was cold. I felt like I didn’t need a jacket to wear when it was cold outside. I just hated wearing long sleeves period, until I got older.
Growing up, the old heads used to tell me to wait until I get older you’ll be wearing a jacket just like everyone else. My other family members just call me young bull with tough skin( well some). My grandmother always got on me about wearing a jacket. Leaving for school in the morning when it was cold was hard because she will be up and to make sure you on a jacket before you left her house but I took it off when I got to the bus stop.
High school was always funny to me when it was cold outside. Seeing other students with their heavy jackets made me laugh a little. They always use to ask me you ain’t cold bro? you going to get sick bro, man your bones don’t hurt? do you even get cold? Truth is, yes I do but it didn’t affect me like everyone one.
Now that I’m 25, I enjoy wearing my black jacket. Sometimes it doesn’t even be cold and I’ll randomly put it on and just chill. Oh yeah, The old heads were right about the getting older part. I feel the cold and it affects me much better now and boy it sucks. Plus I do security and gotta ride this jitney around work so I can pick up the residents and take them to their location and I dislike when they call because that wind chill hit ya hard
I caught the flu for the first time because of the cold weather and that was just last year. I took an hour and 30-minute walk home in 35 degrees weather and caught the flu 3 days later and that shit was depression but I learned my lesson and that is to always take care of yourself no matter what because we only have one body.
