I always love these blustery, rainy days. Overcast forecasts make me feel gloomy and melancholy, but I love it anyway, especially when accompanied by some chill music.
I love to listen to songs by Corinne Bailey Rae, Esthero, Colbie Caillat, and Jem among others. They put me in the mood to just kick back, relax, and reminisce. I love thinking of memories long passed, or just looking at the world with a clean, fresh view.
This weather has the habit of taking all the pressure and stress away, turning me into a big ball of sweat pants and hoodies. It’s not all emotions of melancholy and relaxation though.
Driving in the rain can make me frustrated at other drivers. One of my biggest peeves to pet is driving without headlights on when it’s foggy or rainy; however, driving with high beams on is also a no-no as it’s blindingly ignorant.
It’s days like this that make me want to nap all day and eat soup from the Chinese place up the road. Perhaps read a book, solve a puzzle, or just lay there contemplating life.
