Most people hate rainy days, but then you’re not most people. You fully embody the Singing in the Rain mentality, and you just want to yell it from the rooftops… in a rainstorm.
1. You’re a rainy day homebody.
Your ideal day is staying snuggly under your covers with a hot drink. Rainy weather totally grants you full permission to do so. No more of this “it’s so nice out, I have be outside” mentality.
2. Umbrellas are a sign of weakness.
It’s ridiculous to you when people pull out their umbrellas at the slightest hint of a slight drip. Like when was the last time rain ever seriously hurt someone? To you, using an umbrella is the ultimate sign of disrespect for your favorite weather pattern. As my favorite Southern belle always tells me, “You ain’t made of sugar, you won’t melt.”
3. Rainboots are you favorite boots.
They’re actually just your favorite shoes in general. You wish that it was okay to wear your rain boots on clear days just so that you could pretend it’s raining outside. Hey, who knows, you probably actually do wear your rain boots on blue sky days.
4. You love the feeling of surrendering to the rain.
There’s that one moment in a real downpour when you finally accept you’re going to be soaked. You’re tensed shoulders relax, your head tilts up as you embrace the oncoming curtain of water, and it’s in this that you find true rainstorm freedom.
5. Rain is just a shower for the soul.
…and possibly a legitimate shower for your body. No judgment.
6. You know that rain is the perfect time for deep thinking.
You can’t use your headphones or phone because they’ll either break or electrocute you, and no one’s going to bother you on the street because they’re freaking out about the weather. Rain gives you total freedom to lose yourself in your thoughts.
7. Clouds bring the drama.
You’re a total drama queen, and dark clouds on the horizon have a way of adding a touch of seriousness to the world below. Not to mention the great insta photos you get from cloudy skies.
8. You can’t sleep at night without some sort of rain sound.
Laying in bed at night with the gentle tapping of rain on the window is the only bedtime story you’ve ever need. You actually have a rain soundtrack on your computer or phone that you play at night when you can’t get your fix with the real thing.
It might not be the same, but it’s better than hearing drunk people in the streets below.
9. Rain makes you feel alive.
It’s the times like when your skin gets pricked by the first drops of rain and the skin on your back tightens and your skin erupts into goosebumps. It’s this moment of tickled sensation on your skin that reminds you that you feel and sense the world around you, and that’s what it is to be alive.
10. You don’t understand why people describe rainy weather as “gross.”
It’s just water falling from an incredibly high altitude, and the last time you checked it’s a process that sustains all life across the world. So you would please like an explanation from someone about what’s so gross about your fav weather pattern.
