It's pouring outside.

Chatterbox: Pudding's Place

It's pouring outside.

It's pouring outside. Rain spatters down on your yellow slicker, wet enough without you splashing through the puddles that dot the sidewalk. But, you think to yourself, wouldn't sidestepping around them take more time? You stop your pursuit of your house to think about this. But you come up with no answer, and end up getting more soaked by standing there. Finally, you reach the porch. Fumbling to insert the key, you spot a flash of red behind you and hear footsteps. Swiveling around, you see nothing, and open the door. Weird. 15 minutes later, you are toweled off and preparing to attack your Croatian homework. You crack open the laptop that sits on your desk, and jump back when a cream-colored envelope flutters out. You nervously look around, and pick up the envelope. You turn it over. A red, fancy sticker holds it in place. Peeling the sticker off, you pull out the two pieces of paper. You start with the first.

I've never been in a ski lodge before. Mostly because I was confused why it was called a ski lodge if the majority of them don't even take place at an actual ski lodge. Actually, I still am. Anyway, seems fun.

Name: DoodleGirl

Gender/pronouns:, female, she/her

Appearance: very curly brown hair, a bit past my shoulders, tan skin, and brown eyes. Turquoise-clear glasses. Average height, weight, etc. I usually wear something comfortable but also stylish (hopefully) and I love wearing lots of colors.

Personality: Usually quiet and shy, but I can get very bubbly and excited when talking about something I’m passionate about, pretty smart but not very clever, if that makes sense. Artistic, kind, overthinker, and a bit awkward. I’m kind of an old soul.

Luggage: extra clothes, toiletries, plenty of books, a sketchbook and pencils/pens, my journal, my phone (if that exists in this world), my trusty blue stuffed bear, and snacks.

Are you superstitous?: Nope. My neighbors have a black cat which I have seen cross the street more times than I can count, and that never gave me bad luck. At least, I don't think so. (this is actually true)

High or Low: High!
