Write On Despite The Rain.

18 Apr

Asheville has been hit with a crazy amount of rain over the past few days, but it’s been perfect for me. I forgot how much I love walking in the rain. It’s not exactly my favorite when I have to walk to class (especially when I’m in a hurry), but overall, I love it. I love the way everything smells so much greener after it rains, and I love the sound the rain makes as it hits the leaves of the trees that surround campus. Rain has a different feel to it in the mountains. Instead of something to complain about, it’s something to celebrate. It has a kind of calming effect that is truly hard to describe, but sometimes when it rains, I just sit outside and listen to the pure sound of such a simple thing: rain falling from the sky.

These rainy days haven’t been good for my productivity level however. Even though I did get a good bit of work done on a Humanities paper that’s due on Monday, I’d much rather open my window and curl up with a book and some coffee. Or even better: sleep. Adequate amounts of sleep are rare at college campuses this time of year. It’s the time of year for final projects, presentations, papers and the favorite of all, final exams. Even though my final exams officially begin a week from today, there is still so much to be done before I can even think about studying for that Wednesday final exam. Chief among them is the paper that’s due Monday. Therefore, instead of listening to the rain and reading a good book with some hot coffee at my side, I’ll be working on this Humanities paper until it’s done. I’m hoping that I’ll be finished sooner rather than later, but with papers it’s so hard to tell. One day I may be able to crank out a good 3-4 pages of the 7-page paper, while other days I may struggle just to get one paragraph. Alas, this is college, and I must do what I do best: Write On!

    Good luck with the paper! I like to sleep when it’s rainy, but unfortunately that’s usually because I’m in pain. Sometimes I like the thunder and lightning.

    Good luck with your finals. 🙂 I understand your dilemma. I’d rather listen to the rain, too.
    I am passing on two awards to you. If you don’t want to accept, that’s fine, no obligation, but I was to pick 6 other bloggers to give them to and I picked you as one of them. ♥

    good luck with your paper… the rain sounds nice to me – you could fit time to write a Haiku about walking in the rain too.

    I love waking up and hearing rain outside. One of the best sounds in the world 🙂 Unless I have to go to class, haha. Good luck with school work! Sounds like a library weekend…
