    23 Things Everyone Who Is Afraid Of The Sun Will Understand

    SPF one million, please.

    1. It's summertime. And that is a scary thing.

    2. All it takes is one bad burn, and you're converted.

    Once bitten, twice shy, baby.

    3. Seeing the sunlight pouring in when you wake up just isn't that exciting.

    Oh great, another glorious morning.

    4. You try to convince people to come over rather than go out.


    Plus, that's where the snacks are.

    5. And you're a lil ~picky~ about where to sit in the park or at the beach.


    So sometimes that means staying indoors. Because bed, amirite?

    6. Summertime = Netflix time.

    7. You have to rule out a lot of the places your friends suggest to have a picnic or outing.

    No shade, no way.

    8. But when you finally find the perfect tree to sit under, it's a beautiful thing.

    9. Your beachwear choices are a little different from everyone else's.

    And if a beach doesn't have umbrella rentals, it has to get crossed off the list.

    13. Hats are way more than an accessory. They're a way of life.

    The wider the brim, the better.

    14. Sometimes you have a ~moment~ when you get the most updated sunscreen formula:
