College Adventures: Dancing in the Rain

As some of you know, I am now a college student. Last night, a lot of the people in my hall went to a bonfire. And it rained. And when they got back, they were soaked so they decided to go dance in the rain.

I had spent the night in my dorm doing homework listening to them. So they came inside and said, "You should come dance in the rain with us."

And I said, "Okay."

There were six or seven of us (all girls) running around in the dark and the cold and the rain jumping in puddles and splashing each other and standing in the waterfalls of rain that are pouring off the roof.

And then we found a particularly large puddle and one of my housemates decided to lay down in it. So she did. And then we turned it into a house initiation where we all had to lay down in it. It was cold. And wet. But so much fun.

There was one guy that saw us and walked by and said, "You girls are all crazy" (we're an all-girl house). We kept trying to convince random people to come jump in the puddles with us but none of them would do it. When we were done, we tramped into the building, up the elevator, and stood in the hall until our RA came out and took a picture of us all standing there soaking wet.

Some days you just have to dance in the rain.
