The Rain Can’t Be All That Bad.

I will admit, I am sick of all of this rain. It has continuously rained here for a week now, and shows no sign of letting up. Tomorrow is supposed to be the worst we have faced here in Kentucky, so I will see how it goes.

I do have to admit, purchasing rain boots might of been the best investment I have ever made. Before I transferred here there was no need for them. The campus I was on never had any puddles, I could wear any shoes I wanted, and it was great. Now, here in Kentucky, the campus is as flat as a pancake so the water has no runoff. It just sits forever and a day it seems like, so there are puddles galore, and at times this can be a pain.

However.

Today was my friend Katie’s birthday, (who by the way is going to be my roommate next year). Us girls did all kinds of things for her all day. We went to Walmart and purchased all kinds of candy and goodies (all of the Easter candy was 50% off. SCORE!). Then her current roommate got her out of her room long enough for us to decorate the entire thing. Actually, Katie came back in the middle of our decorating process and I had to keep my fingers on the lock to keep her from unlocking the door to getting in and ruining the surprise. After many attempts to get in, Katie came to the conclusion her door’s lock was broken. Little did she know we were filling her entire room with balloons and streamers. Finally, when we revealed to her our beautiful creation, she was shocked beyond belief. She loved it, but that was only the beginning. We then blindfolded her and drove her to Cheddar’s for dinner. She has not idea where we were taking her, although we kept telling her we were going to the strip club. She was even more surprised when we let her take her blindfold off once we sat her down in the booth. Then we drove back, but she wanted Cold Stone, so we stopped for the princess. Again, little did she know that we had a cookie cake waiting for her back at the dorm. Once we did finally get back home, she was floored that we went above and beyond for her birthday.

To finish off the night we changed into our bathing suits and clothes we didn’t mind ruining and went out into our quad. Since the rain has still yet to subside, a huge puddle has formed in the middle of the quad. It is probably six inches deep and forever wide it seems, so basically it is a mini pond. So all of us girls went sliding, belly diving, splashing, and running into the puddle. It was like we were little kids. So see, you can make all of this gloomy rain fun.
