Texas summers are the worst!

Dallas, Texas Skyline

Texas summers are no joke, but you’d think I’d be used to it by now. After all, this Texas girl has lived here for all of her life. Yet, as triple-digit days remain in the books, I can’t help but sigh. I can’t wait for fall to get here!

Dear Texas Summer,

A howdy from me, you will never hear.
Longing for your departure grows more each day.

I would say it isn't you, but it certainly isn't me!
Your rays are anything but warm and lovely.

With you, there is no cool and gentle breeze.
Your winds are only scorching hot and dry.

A break from you is much needed.
So, it's time to pencil in a getaway. 

Goodbye, my old friend, Tex.

About me? I’m never good at these things, but here are the basics. I’m a journalism and film graduate from the University of Texas at Austin. I'm a dedicated digital content nerd with over eight years of experience in digital content management, content writing, copy editing, and project management. Currently, I'm a staff writer for The American Genius, and I manage my personal blog that advocates for epilepsy awareness. I LOVE to bake! I like to challenge myself to learn new decorating and baking techniques. And although I’d love to say I’ve mastered everything and have never burnt a dessert, it simply isn’t true.
