So… what’s going on with me? School, pretty much. And procrastinating on said school. Business as usual, basically :P.
It’s raining today. That’s a thing that’s different from your typical Tuesday. You know, I like rain. Precipitation in general, really. I mean, snow is obviously my favorite, but rain is cool too. Less so if I have to walk across campus and I forgot my umbrella, but as long as you’re prepared, the rain is actually pretty fun, in my opinion. Like, you put on your rain boots, and you’ve got your umbrella, and you’re walking around with really no cares in the world. You can spin your umbrella around, and slosh through the rain puddles to your heart’s content, even jump in them if you want to!
And if you’re inside, I really see no reason to complain. The rain makes a happy drummy noise on the roof, which is especially good for falling asleep at night- it’s like nature’s lullaby :).
Plus, there might be thunder! I actually really like thunder storms. The lightning and the clouds are really pretty to watch (as long as they don’t start spinning around and coming toward the ground- tornadoes are a thing I definitely don’t like), and I think it’s fun to try and count the seconds between the lightning and thunder to see how far away the storm is.
And really, I think rain and storms are a nice change of pace. Like, I don’t think I’d enjoy living somewhere like California where it’s always 70 degrees and sunny. It’d just get so boring. Plus, the sun and I don’t really get along, but you guys should know that by now…
Besides, if you consider the alternative, I feel like rain is really the better option. Rain waters the plants and makes everything pretty and green and alive. Drought turns everything brown and dead. Places without enough rain turn into miserable, hot, thirsty deserts. Too much rain
makes floods, and I… actually kind of enjoyed it the last time it flooded? I felt bad for the people who had flood damage and everything, but I thought it was really pretty seeing all the ponds spring up out of nowhere, and it kind of made getting places an adventure. Especially my house, since basically three of the four routes leading to it were flooded over. I dunno, I just thought it was cool getting to see the same place in a different way.
And… I have now spent an entire blog talking about rain. I’ll go now. Bye!
