Like many places it seems, Academichic Central is in danger of being washed away with all this rain!
Multiple days of heavy rain mean to things: my wellies are getting a workout and my hair is ridiculously curly. I’ve been trying to take advantage of the short breaks in the rain to fit in a run, plant something, or do other outside projects. I keep reminding myself that all this rain is good for my new plants, my compost, and my lawn. Plus, I feel really “hard-core” when I start my run in the sun and finish it in a down pour or when I have to slip on my wellies to slop through the muddy lawn to my compost bin.
But, this means when I finally get cleaned up to head to campus, I don’t want to look like I am wearing my rain gear. The rain was too persistent (and my trek through campus too long) to wear regular shoes, so I opted for my secret wellies (people often can’t tell they are rubber instead of leather). Like L., instead of using bright colors, I found other things in my closet to make me think of spring. I chose this light gauzy scarf and wooden accessories – items that make me think of sunny islands rather than rainy cities.
Come on May flowers!
