Let's just get straight to the point. MY LIFE IS AWESOME. I live in a place in California where it never snows, and if it does it's basically just frozen rain (wow no duh) that melts the minute it touches anything solid. So basically, it never snows where I live... until now.
I go to a really cool high school where the educators really enjoy seeing teenagers SMILE (wow, who would have thought anything of the sort possible in an educational institution??? WUSSUP WITH THIS?!?!?) But how can a teenager truly smile without experiencing at least one snow day a year? Well, my wonderful school was able to solve this problem: soap.
One day a year, my high school has a snow day. This means that us high schoolers get to come to school decked out in snow clothes (i.e. scarves, jeans, thin sweaters covered in moose. i.e. wannabe snow clothes) and party it up with a snow machine that spurts out soap all over our schools courtyard, drink powered hot chocolate with rehydrated marshmallows, and eat lovely snow cones that transform your tongue, lips, and teeth into a rainbow masterpiece. And this year, my high school decided to make it an extra special snow day and rent a fake ice skating rink!
Since I am a freshman, this was my first experience with a snow day, but apparently this was the first time in FIVE YEARS that they'd rented a mini ice skating rink made of wax. It was a pretty special experience, because you got to skate on this fake rink with REAL SKATES to really maximize the awesomeness of the oh-so-magical snow day. I really indulged myself (like I ever don't when it comes to free food) with three hot chocolates (two that included delicious rehydrated marshmallows) and a fruit punch flavored snow cone that tasted like a cross between AWESOME and TOXINS, leaving me with a great memento of red teeth to cherish for approximately 4 hours.
And then I hit the wax, skates and all, and partied it up for about 5 minutes with some friends. But it was sadly uneventful. My school decided to be cool and turn off the snow/soap machine and the music when I was finally in the mood to glide gracefully along some wax. I'm a pretty avid ice (wax) skater when it comes to being able to skate really fast and fall down/run into people accidentally, but the mini rink did not allow for much room to do either of these things. I also was clearly just on a sugar crash from my powered hot cocoa/rehydrated marshmallows/teeth tinting snow cone eating parade, so my enthusiasm for life was in need of a battery change. So after my 5 minutes of wax skating, I bowed -hands pressed together in front of chest style- and then returned my skates and went to go sit down and mourn for my inability to enjoy such an amazing event.
Anyway, I was a dumb butt and didn't take photos of my outfit (sweater+skirt+tights+Clarks+scarf) but I like this outfit and I wore it 2 or 3 days ago so I'm just going to post it for y'all.
PS: Before you die make sure you experience a snow day.
