My family and I traveled to Tampa Bay, Florida every summer time when I was a kid, but i remember going to Tampa For the first time when I was around 10 years old, but my family and I rented boats during the summer time and both of us kayaked all over the Tampa Bay, but the two of us went to the beach and both of us also visited several freshwater Springs, and one of the Springs even had real mermaids in the water.
- I looked at the pictures from our summer time vacation every year and I wanted to return when I was an adult, then when it came time to look at colleges, I decided to apply to a couple of colleges in the Tampa Bay area.
I was accepted to the University of Tampa. I moved to the neighborhood before college started, so I could meet my classmates and get used to the campus. The sizzling and humid temperatures were more than I could handle. I didn’t remember the heat and humidity being so bad, however living in the neighborhood full-time was a lot weird then a weeklong vacation. I ran the cooling system every single day when I was in the dorm. Thankfully, I didn’t have to pay any of the air-conditioning bills. I am sure they were significantly higher than most. I didn’t have a roommate during the first year, and I didn’t have to listen to anyone complain about the indoor temperatures. That first summer time I spent in Tampa was a nightmare and not 1 of the best memories I have from college. It took some time to get used to the heat and humidity. It’s still humid in Winter and it never gets cold.
