Anywho, I just wanted to say hello. I found myself with a little extra time on my hands today and I am just sitting here enjoying -as much as one can- this obnoxious weather that Waco is currently witnessing. I've got a big cup of hot chocolate and an oddly positive/ motivated outlook today, and let me tell you guys; it does wonders. Seriously though, I am so ready for today and I have no idea why... it is a funny, yet refreshing feeling.
HA! It's funny how quickly things change. I wrote the first half of this post as I was waiting for my 9:30 class to start, but now its the end of my school day and my outlook isn't near as cheery. To those of you that know me personally, you know how snarky and sarcastic I am...well believe it or not that part of me is amplified up in that things that sits between my oddly large ears. I provide little monologues to keep myself entertained as I walk and I make up scenarios for, and often mock the people that I pass. I find it to be quite amusing, and this afternoon it was in full swing and I was not holding my thoughts back one bit.
The weather had quickly been deteriorating all day; getting worse as each minute ticked by. I got off work around three and after awkwardly flinging my body into the ginormous brass doors of the lovely Armstrong Browning Library in order to open them, I stepped outside and was greeted with rain. Excuse me, I meant something more along the lines of little icy bullets threatening to end my life with every step I took after parting my workplace... or at least that is what it felt like anyways.
Now I know people living up North or somewhere where snow is an actual thing and temperatures of 32 and below are normal for you are probably laughing and wishing you could experience this. Seeing as how I am not used to weird ice rains of death though, I found this to be a particularly miserable experience.
Moving on. I instinctively reached for my hood to pull it up over my head to provide some sort of protection from the wanna be snow and realized I had no hood. TWO JACKETS ON AND I HAD NO STINKIN' HOOD. So I found myself in one of those half walk/ half run kind of things where you look as if you are trying frolic, unsuccessfully, through some field of pretty daisies, stumbling all the while. My hands were balled up into fists that I shoved into my pockets the moment I started my trek, and with the amount of force that I was using to keep them there, I was sure they would punch out the bottom of my pockets.
The rain, or sleet... or whatever it was stung like crazy, and to top it off it was coming down in a side-ways manner due to the heavy gusts of wind that kept threatening to knock me over as I ran. And with my face being completely exposed to these horrendous elements, I'm pretty sure I got a brain freeze. Not even joking. It felt like I had been munching on ice cream for a couple minutes straight. By the time I got to where I was heading I had no feeling left in my face and I was fairly soaked, that was not a pleasant feeling.
I had been talking to myself this entire time too; cursing the weather and commenting on the people that looked as if they were suffering just as much, or more than I was. Honestly, I was cracking myself up, like it was bad guys. I'm just going to go ahead and say that it was my way of keeping my mind off the cold to prevent myself from looking like THAT person that laughs hysterically at their own jokes.
Now I have to throw in a little disclaimer. This post was written on Thursday AND earlier I stated "my outlook isn't near as cheery," but by that I didn't mean that I wasn't happy because I was still in a surprisingly good mood. I meant it more as in I got a billion times sassier and a little bit more offensive. In other words, I was my normal self, but that positive mood that I had this morning, thankfully stuck with me throughout the day. To prove that here is some pictures of kitties! Looky at how cute they are.
