    Walking in the rain has always been a peaceful

    experience for me. I don't know what it is about being consumed by the rain that makes me feel so calm, but I always considered it a bit therapeutic.

    Its just a habit of mine.

    Even when there's gonna be a storm, I don't bring it. My Aunt used to always remind me to take an umbrella with me and i always say i have it in my bag but its a lie. I just like the rain. I remember always going home soaked cause of the rain. And actually I don't mind if I...

    Who would use an umbrella?

    ?? When you can be taking a shower with your clothes on.

    I never knew so many people didn't really care,

    or that liked being rained on. I actually do have an umbrella, but I got it kind of as an accessory more than anything else. I'm just used to getting rained on I guess; it doesn't bother me.

    When I Can I Won't

    Unless I have to be somewhere, I always chose to walk in the rian without an umbrella. I find it invigorating and refreshing. It cleans the soul and the mind, and washes away all the 'dirt' collected. It's healing.

    I Never..

    ...have an umbrella when it rains. I usually tilt my head down a little. That way I can prevent rain from getting on my glasses.

    I prefer a raincoat and using the hood!

    I'm really short so it's awkward for me to use one as it be in everyone's way and probably poke everyone out with it as well as can't see where I'm going! I dislike carrying anything so I won't carry a umbrella as after a while it hurts my arm! As well as having to keep...

    Forgetful

    I always forget an umbrella, so I never even have one to use. Be that as it may, I enjoy not using one anyways. The rain feels good. When it drenches me, I just have to laugh at my own expense. I tend to look like a drowned cat when wet, so I appear positively ridiculous :P Why...

    I don't even own one.

    and thinking back I don't think I ever have. I don't mind the rain falling on me, it actually feels freeing the way I feel when I jump in a pool. my dog I thinks would like one.

    When It Rains...

    I walk while everyone else runs if I am caught in the rain. It never surprises me though, I can smell the rain in the air about a day before it comes. I like to let the cool drops hit my face as I look into the sky, it makes me have a feeling...like there is something good I...

    Every time in rains, I'll go out

    and just stand there with my arms out, my head back and my tongue out to catch raindrops. It's so calming. Almost an escape.

    I Have Three Umbrellas In My Closet.

    But I never use them. Most of the time, I don't mind getting wet, unless I spent a long time getting ready or I'm wearing something expensive or that will get ruined. But even then, I rarely use an umbrella. I just never remember to grab it on the way out. My roommate bought me...

    I met Bobby when I was 9 years old. We were in the same class in grade 4. At that time, I developed a little girl crush on him, which was not reciprocated, but he did decide I was good enough to have as a best friend; even better, in my opinion. When we were in grade 5, my family...

    It's not that I won't use one.

    It's because keeping track of an umbrella for the few times I'd need one is just unnecessary. I am so very dedicated to an uncomplicated maintenance free lifestyle! Keep life simple and enjoy every raindrop!
