Right now it’s raining, and I need to say what’s in my mind on this rainy day.
I don’t like rainy days. I won’t say I hate them, because I don’t. I like hearing the rain fall outside when I’m laying in bed; it helps put me to sleep. But if it’s raining while I’m at school, I feel like everything and everyone needs to be in a sad, bitter mood.
I never know what to do on a rainy day in the summer time because I want to curl up in a big, fluffy blanket and drink hot cocoa or coffee. I can actually do that now that it’s winter.
I love to read. I read (or write) whenever I can. I’m also an actual child trapped in a sixteen year old’s body, so you bet I read all the “kid” books. By saying that, I’m not referring to the actual children books. I’m talking about stuff like “The Land of Stories” by Chris Colfer, or “Kingdom Keepers” by Ridley Pearson. I just started rereading the latter, which I originally only finished the first three books, and I’m thoroughly enjoying it.
It’s books like those that really help me calm down after a possibly stressful day. The greatest book series to read on a rainy day, all series considered, is the Harry Potter book series. I know I’m not the only one who thinks so.
I’ve read the series through one full time. I’m currently old enough that I would be a sixth year if I went to Hogwarts, so I’m rereading the sixth book, The Halfblood Prince. Give me that and my butterbeer latte brew for the Keurig and I’m all set.
I also love coloring. Before the adult coloring books were a big thing, I literally begged my mom to buy me a Strawberry Shortcake coloring book. (The cartoon character, not the actual food.) I went home and got through three pages before I decided to watch some TV with my mom. But I could color for hours on end.
I also love to write. I don’t know why, but my creative juices really start to flow on rainy days. I have so much to write, so much I want people to know but never want them to find out. Girls, you know what I mean.
