Attitude is key.

"I've learned that you can tell a lot about a person by the way s/he handles these three things: a rainy day, lost luggage, and tangled christmas tree lights." -Maya Angelou

For about a week now it has been raining just about every day in Kennesaw, and let me be the first to say that walking across campus in the rain, fighting the wind from blowing your umbrella inside out, and trying your hardest to keep your belongings dry and yourself just mildly decent looking is not the most fun in the world. In fact, it's pretty damn miserable, especially when it's only 50 degrees and you have poor circulation to your extremities (i.e. me). But ever since reading that quotation I have been much more aware of my attitude towards the rain. Yeah, it sucks. Point blank, period. It's not a good time. But at the end of the day it's just water, and I will dry, and life will continue as usual. Sure, my hair might be a hot mess that day, but Hermione Granger had a mess of frizzy hair, and she turned out to be a badass witch. Not to mention rain makes for the perfect lying in bed watching movies, reading books, and blogging days.

My point is things are only as bad as you allow them to be. It's all about your attitude. When you change your mindset and decide you're going to be positive when things aren't going as planned you'll be surprised by how much better your day will be. It's like magic, seriously.

Stay golden,
Jessie
