Say Hello To Summer: The Season We've All Been Waiting For...Or Not

Summer already started, some folks believe, as temperatures on certain days have felt like sweltering ones.

FirstDayOfSummer and it's currently 115° outside expected to hit 120°???? https://t.co/0eDAY5mu0H

However, the start of the summer season officially begins today, June 21st.

Some people are already celebrating on Twitter using the hashtag #FirstDayOfSummer.

But doesn't it feel like summer struggles a bit with patience? Didn't it sort of creep in between winter and spring this year? Summer, it's finally your turn!

If my sweat glands are any indicator, surely the #FirstDayOfSummer was four days ago.

To be fair, mother nature has been quite the indecisive one lately. One minute it's chilly, the next minute it's unbearably hot that you can't last five minutes outside. And in states like Florida, summertime lasts all year.

Either way, the world is ready to soak up the sun. Well, not the entire world. The heat is not everyone's best friend.

Maybe you'll want to skip into summer with a trip to the mall for a new outfit, a vacation on the beach, or time spent with friends. And if you're a guy, maybe you'll be cracking open a cold one with the boys. Isn't that what people are 'meming' about these days?

How will you be kicking off your first day of summer?
