i look better in fall clothing.
i love shorts...i enjoy wearing them...i enjoy being comfortable in them when it's hot.
i don't however enjoy being seen in them. (i have weird legs)
that all changes in the fall however. put me in some jeans, boots, a nice button up, and a light jacket, and you give me a chance to hide my "fat" a little better. also, there's a good chance the temperature is cool enough that i wont be sweating like i just thought about jogging a quarter mile.
if i have to meet someone, for the first time, i'd prefer it be in the autumn months. the way i look and dress in the fall is a way better first impression then i could make in shorts and flip flops. you never want to have someones first impression of you to be,
"whoa, those are some weird legs"
This is why, no matter what the temperature is, as well as general professionalism, i've always worn jeans or slacks to a job interview. i'd much rather the interviewer see me sweat and curious if i had just run a marathon before our meeting, then burn into their brain a vision of my weird legs.
i feel like inland maine and i are very similar. since moving here, the majority of my exploring has been on the coast. i haven't traveled "into" maine much. last sunday is decided to change that with a quick trip around sebago lake. the trees were at peak foliage and the reflections off the lake were amazing. i drove completely around the lake and spent two hours in awe. i'm not sure i would have had the same feeling if i would have seen sebago lake for the first time this summer.
i might have noticed weird "coves" or something.
