Snowy Days

I wake up this morning for my first day of second semester, and about ten minutes into my yogurt, my friend texts me “Please tell me you looked outside”

Now, I had not, mostly because it was 7:15am and I don’t think of things like “sunlight” or “outside” when I first try to knock myself out of dreamland and back into life mode.

I opened my blinds, and…well…I was given a winter wonderland.

I did not think of taking photos as I shoveled the rest of my yogurt down and knocked back my morning tea, but here are two from this afternoon after my classes:

Imagine the walk in the morning. our dorm circle barely plowed and the winds a-ragin. Not my favorite as the snow slapped me across the face and removed half of my makeup (note to all: ALWAYS check your mascara after a walk like that. Mine spotted my eyelids), but I finally arrived at my classes and buckled down.

While I really should be re-copying my notes from today, I needed a tiny break and decided to get into my comfiest shorts and sweatshirt, slap a heating pack around my shoulders, and dance around a bit. I soon realized there really is not anything better during a snowy snowy day like today: Warm shoulders, comfy clothes, a smidgen of sunlight, and a fabulous new playlist, but don’t let me sway you! Check it out for yourselves!

1. Recover – CHVRCHES

2. Love Don’t Die – The Fray

3. Over & Over – Smallpools

Hopefully the list puts a smile on your faces. It certainly turned my damp, snowy frown upside down!
