Goeun Park: I used to hate you: An open letter to November

Email News Alerts

Dear November,

I used to hate you.

I’m not talking about the coy, cute sort of hatred shown in rom-coms. I’m talking vendetta. I’m convinced that it was in my blood to find everything about you detestable. The chill. The dark. The impending doom that was another Minnesotan winter.


If sentiment alone could change seasons, you would have been a goner. I regarded you with the kind of violent contempt that would have wiped you off the calendar.
