8561176604_ca53ca63d8_o.jpg     Before I came here, my friend was telling me to be prepared for the bad weather. I thought he was kidding, and told him yeah I’m ready don’t worry about that. So I showed him what I got, my coat and shoes. He started laughing and told me that wouldn’t work, you need one’s for our winter a waterproof coat and shoes. I told my self well this is what I got, my coat and shoes will do just fine. What could go wrong?

I arrived and when I came the weather was good, so I told him see everything is just fine. He smiled and said wait and see, for now it’s  ok but you’ll regret it. So a week passed and everything was going smoothly and it was so nice. We came to the first day of school, the forecast was showing that there is going to be small showers. Dressed up for school looking at my shoes and coat, said that definitely these will do just fine and will survive the small showers. Went walking to the bus station, it was a small walk and the weather was little bit cloudy. Got on the bus went to the Port Authority Terminal, it was my first time and that place was so big.. don’t want to tell you how I got lost it took me about half an hour to figure it out. Got to school the first day was good, but all I was thinking of was going back home.

Going back home was a different story, it was raining and can’t remember when was the last time I saw heavy rain like that. I was looking at it and telling my self you can do it, but only if I had an umbrella!! Walked back home from the bus station, and you can imagine how I look. I was soaked in water from head to toe, talking to my self about what my friend was saying about the bad weather. Next day i called him and told him that I need to go to the mall for new clothes, he laughed and said ” I told you so”.
