weird weather

i don't understand the weather here. i think i'm going crazy (this isn't the only reason why i'm going crazy, but it definitely contributes to it).

here's an excerpt from my daily email from
Saturday: Abundant sunshine. Highs in the low 40s and lows in the upper 20s.

so i read the first sentence and get so encouraged! then i read the rest and i get glum. dude, how can they do that to me!?

oh, and earlier this week, it said this:
A chilly start across the Northeast

Clear skies and light winds (courtesy of high pressure) have combined to
result in a chilly morning across the region. In some cases, the cold has set
new record lows for today's date. The same high pressure responsible for the
cold will also result in plenty of sunshine across the region throughout the
day. The sun should help to warm the air this afternoon, although expect
today's highs to run a few degrees below seasonal averages for this time of
the year. Afternoon temperatures will range from the low 40s across Northern
New England to the low 50s across the mid-Atlantic. Enjoy today's sunshine
because wet weather is due to arrive by Tuesday across much of the region.

i don't know how i'm going to survive. i mean, the weather doesn't feel that bad, but if they keep on breaking it to me like that, i'm going to feel terrible for the rest of my time here. when it first started getting cold, i was seriously wondering in my head why i even wanted to leave california and why i chose boston of all cities (though my other choices - new york and connecticut - aren't much better weather-wise).

but good news is that i think i'm adjusting quickly. i was walking home with just a light sweater today around 11:30 and i felt fine. weird. but when the wind kicks up, it's wicked cold (like that, "wicked"?).

ok, gotta go to bed now. have a test tomorrow. will barely pass, but then again, P=MD. aren't you encouraged that tomorrow's doctors are looking to only get 70% correct?
