Singing and Dancing in the Rain

#37. Create a summer playlist.

#108. Dance in the rain. image[1]

I love rain. I love those days when the sky is gray and the world is hushed and quiet. I like the way the world seems to fall into a sort of humming silence on rainy days. I’m not saying I would like to live in a world where it only rained, because I wouldn’t, but I do enjoy the rain. And because of that I decided that I would try to dance in the rain while it was pouring – a little ode to those childhood days when I would splash in  puddles and run around until I was soaked to the bone. For the week or so I’ve been out of school I’d say half of those days have been rainy. However I was looking for a downpour and all I was getting was a drizzle. Finally about two days ago the heavy dark clouds of a storm rolled in. I waited patiently and when the sky opened up and released a torrent of rain I dashed out side. Within minutes my clothes were soaked and I was dancing with a fury I didn’t know I possessed. The storm lasted all of ten minutes and then it was back indoors to change out of my wet attire. All I can say is I had a splashin’ good time.

May the summer be ever in your favor,

#11 Participate in a charity walk/run/event and more!

This weekend I was able to participate in a charity walk for Crohn’s and Colitis. If you missed the previous memo I was diagnosed with Crohn’s disease this past April. To be entirely honest, when I added this list item I was thinking I would participate in something for cancer or AIDS research, not for my own disease since it’s not life-threatening. The opportunity was too perfect to pass up though, being that the walk was taking place relatively near my home and at a time I was available. However it was only a meer 2.5 mile walk, a cinch for me and really I feel like I didn’t get the full effect on this one. So while technically yes, I did complete this item, I’m hoping I will be able to participate in another charity event before the end of summer. Anyway if your interested in finding out more about Crohn’s and Colitis walks near you check out this website: http://online.ccfa.org

Another accomplishment I made over the weekend was to complete #24 Pick an offical summer song. What song did I pick as my anthem for summer? Titanium by David Guetta feat. Sia. Normally I try to stay away from any of Guetta’s cookie cutter pop music, but Sia’s voice is truly something magical. And I haven’t been able to get the song out of my head since yesterday, it’s just that addicting. I also think the lyric’s have a good message behind them, staying strong even when people are criticizing you. Yes, it’s not the deepest song out there, but at least she’s singing about something other than sex, drugs, and partying, which seems to be the norm of songs nowadays.

So overall I’d say this weekend was a complete and utter success, not only did I complete some list items, I also got to just splash around in the pool with friends and soak up the sun. Basically it was the perfect summer weekend. And once again I would like to say thanks to all of you who have read, commented, and supported my blog so far, you guys are so fantastically fabulous!

May the summer be ever in your favor,
