Lately it has started getting really warm up here in northern Sweden where I live and by warm I mean warm, at least if you take into account how high up in the country I reside and what temperatures I'm used to having here. We're reaching minimum 25 °C or something and it will only get warmer this week, maybe even to 30 °C!
I'm one of those guys who just can't stand heat; I start feeling slow, out of energy and occasionally slightly sick because of high heat and I just can't get myself to do anything productive whatsoever. It's definitely too hot to do any kind of kitsuke – just looking at my kimono box under my bed makes me sweat. I would get grilled alive under the layers!
I can barely survive inside my apartment in everyday western wear currently and that's with the fan blowing at full power 24/7. I'm breathing inside a toast box directly from Hell, in other words.
At best I can maybe manage to wear one of my yukata, but even that is if I wear it sloppily and with a can't-be-bothered obi (read: heko obi). Well, that's actually what I did today...
Yeah I know, I look so lively
not and my hair looks like nothing because I couldn't be bothered to style it. Blegh. But hey, even with yukata on I need to go wipe my face, arms and stuff with water every now and then.. or at least spray water on me. Ikea gardener spray bottles are surprisingly useful! Gah, I want winter back...! OTL
