This mixture of feelings is foreign to me. It's tiring.

wake up when my alarm clock goes off (read all 2 entries…)
Untitled

The best thing is to keep your alarm clock across the room from you, so that you absolutely cannot reach it without getting completely out of bed. For a while I had it so that I got up at first, but then I realized I could reach it by leaning way out of bed, almost falling out, but I would still do it just so I wouldn’t have to get up. Terrible!

Also, at least for me, I can’t wake up to music or even a ringtone or anything. It has to be this generic, loud beeping. I hate it so much. It literally fills me with rage when I hear it. But it works. And I have never slept through it. Not once.

kiss in the pouring rain
Kisses in the Rain

It was raining once again in ever-wet, little Berea, KY. This time it was truly pouring and it had been very hot the day before so it was a warm rain. My boyfriend and I had been hanging out in the lobby of my dorm, playing Scattergories with a couple of friends, and we decided to go play in the rain together. My other friends wouldn’t do it, but he got me out there. I didn’t want to at first because I thought it would be cold out there, but as soon as I got in (haha just like a pool) the water was fine. We ran around and got soaked and then he brought me further away from the building where we would be less likely to be seen. He picked me up and spun me around and then kissed me. Then he said, “Hey, it’s like we’re in The Notebook.” It was so sweet. I couldn’t believe he said it. Then we lay down in the grass next to one another and just lay there getting soaked. It was so much fun.
