The strangest thing I’ve encountered in the Midwest is the rain.Now, I’ve experienced rain before, don’t get me wrong, It probably rains every afternoon in early June in Kentucky. But in Kentucky, the rain falls down, upon your head. In Northern Indiana, the rain falls sideways, into your face.(Ironically, of course, it’s not raining at all in these photos – it had stopped by the time I was doing these. In fact, it was heating up a bit, and I just really wanted to take my raincoat off.)The whole “rain in your face” thing, of course, is due to the wind we get here – we are only about an hour way from the Windy City. I don’t mind a breeze, especially at this time of year, when things are only just beginning to cool off, but it scares me for the winter – a bitter cold wind is one of the worst things that can hit you when it’s 20 degrees out, and I’m certain we’re going to have a lot of 20 degree days here.The prospect of rain, however, doesn’t scare me in the least. I love the rain, and I have since I was a kid! I have two rain coats, two pairs of rain boots, a rain hat, and an umbrella (that I left at home…), so I’m always prepared with a fashionable outfit for a storm.Almost always – there was that one time I got caught in a torrential downpour at an All Time Low concert with Amanda and had to spend the extortionate $10 for a plastic rain poncho, which wasn’t fun. Good concert though.
On another note – check out my wide range of poses in these photos, lol. We have “hands in pockets and looking right” and “hands in pockets and looking left.” So diverse. Guess I should try to think up some new poses some time soon 😅
Anywho, that’s all for today! I’m actually in a movie theater right now, writing this, so I need to put my phone away. I can already see an old lady who’s just itching to yell at me.
Thanks for reading, and I’ll see you in the next one with more updates on my life here at Notre Dame. Don’t forget to check me out on Pinterest, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr! For business inquiries, shoot me an email at email@example.com!
