Life | Monsoon of 2015 Snapshots

While I've never been the monsoon's greatest fan, I do make an exception on select occasions *read: days spent indoors watching it pour outside* I love the eternal never-ending summer vibe but when howling winds and gloomy skies came calling in June, I decided to take the necessity that is the monsoon in my stride and not only get set for the rains, but dress for it as well.
So I sat there and prepared for it like I did in the previous years however, after a month and a half of wondering where the monsoons really are, what we've got are a few flash floods and tragically humid days spent trying to deal with it.

So while I'm a summer lover at heart, a little part of me is hoping for the rains to come in full swing so I can spend many more days in, watching it rain with a bowl of steaming hot soup.
