Once upon a time, when the Winter of 2013 was just a little tiny Winter, her mother sat her down and had a talk with her.
"Honey," said Winter of 2013's mom. "You can do anything or be anything you put your mind to. Follow your dreams. You are beautiful and competant and nothing can get in your way."
Little Winter of 2013 came home from school one day crying.
"People are telling me to just leave already, that I don't belong here. Spring said I have overstayed my welcome and Summer pushed me down. They said I'm too nasty and miserable to play with them."
"There there, honey," said Little Winter of 2013's mother. "Don't let anyone tell you what to do. Stick to your guns. If you want to stay, stay. You will leave when you feel like it. Do not let anyone discourage you from your goals."
Little Winter of 2013 never forgot that moment, and although her mother, Winter of 2005 was gone, her words stayed with her the rest of her life. Winter of 2013 vowed when it was her turn, she would stay as long as she could, and not let anyone discourage her from her dreams of being the longest-running Winter in history.
In fact, Winter of 2013 has such a strong hatred for Spring and Summer, she has vowed to hold them off until June, no matter how much people complain about the cold, the snow, their vehicles getting stuck or not starting. Oh, and saying you're SO READY for Spring won't help either.
