I walked out of Biology class, into the rainy, wet day. I buckled my jacket, my hands clenched in fists, my nails digging into my palms. I was having the worst day. First I had forgotten to do my Math homework, then in Biology I had gotten a 78 on my test. I trudged through the sidewalks, which had started to become slick with water from the days long rain. I hurried through the rain. All I wanted to do was to get back to my dorm, take a shower, and sleep. Ugh. I made a shortcut through the grass, which had become thick with mud. Suddenly, I slipped, landing in a puddle of disgusting mud. The knees of my new jeans were coated in a layer of the brown muck. I brought myself to my feet, racing back to my dorm. Worst. Day. Ever! Luckily, my phone was safely in my jacket pocket and my book bag hadn't gotten muddy, but I had. Great. I walked into the dorm, not really caring if I was leaving a muddy trail behind me. I still hoped that nobody saw me. I walked to the end of the hallway to my dorm and searched for my key in my pocket. darn. It must have fallen out when I had tripped! I didn't want to get another key from the dorm advisor (embarrassing!). I knocked four times on the door, hoping that someone was home. Luckily, the door opened.

"You're telling me." I said, biting my lip, trying to hold back tears. "It was awful!" I knew I must have looked like a mess: covered in mud, crazy wet from all the rain, my hair literally attacking my face. Having Sammie as a roommate was hard, but awesome. She always looked perfect, and I knew that nothing like this would ever happen to her. But she was an amazing friend and I knew she would be sympathetic.
Sammie grinned and put a hand on Kate's shoulder. "Cry now or you're gonna do it at dinner!" She said softly, giving her friend a warm hug. "Then, hop in the shower and we'll do facials and mani-pedis." Sammie smiles sweetly. "That'll cheer you up."

I walked into the dorm I shared with Sam and Kate. Kate must of had a bad day, because she was trying to hold back tears. Before I could say anything. Sammie rushed her into the bathroom. I raised an eyebrow, but didn't say anything. i walked into my room and threw my bag on the bed, closing the door as quietly as possible. Hopefully they didn't hear me.

I smiled and laughed weakly, despite feeling like crap. "That might make me feel better." I told Sammie as we walked towards the bathroom. She walked out, leaving me to take a shower. I quickly got out of my dirty clothes and hopped in the shower, letting the warm water flow over me. I relaxed a little. I wanted to stay in the warm water for ever, but I knew mani-pedis were waiting, and that was something I could pass up. I quickly showered, using my Garnier Fructis Pure Clean shampoo and conditioner and my favorite soap, which smelled like lemons. I washed my face, trying to scrub away the day (I'm sure I looked terrible). I quickly slipped into a huge grey sweatshirt with Ride on the front, and a pair of Hollister hot pink skinny sweatpants. I tied my long hair into a messy bun, not bothering to dry it. Later, I decided. I grabbed the huge box of nail polishes and other mani-pedi things out of the cabinet, and walked out of the bathroom.
I grinned. I'd changed into my comfiest Roots sweats, my long, slim legs warm against the soft fabric. I also wore my hooded sweatshirt, with shredded cuffs and neckline, that said "PEI" on the front. It was hot pink, my fave color, but it was definetely too casual for anything but this. This was when I let my guard down- when I was with my amazing friend. I scanned the polish colors before deciding on a pale purple. "This one!" I cried, as if it was a soap opera. Then, I giggled.

"Love it!" I said, picking out a few colors before settling on a bright orange color that was perfect for Fall. I waved my left hand around the bottle, like it was a prize on The Price Is Right. I clicked on the tv, flopping back into one of the white poofy beanbags. I flicked through the channels until I found "The Real Tenth Graders of California", my guilty pleasure show. "Want to watch?" I asked, sitting back, and removing my chipped pale pink nail polish.
I leaned back on my deep red bean bag chair from Potters. I smiled when she turned to the show. "Of course! I love this crap." I said, and laughed. I started carefully removing my deep orange nail polish from before, making sure to get every last bit of paint off before grabbing the new bottle.

"It's my guilty pleasure show." I told her, watching one of the girls brag to her friends about her new boyfriend. "They're so fake." I said, rolling my eyes and wiping the remaining polish off my nails. I started with a single coat of a the dark orange, then waving my hands to let them dry. "So, what's new?" I asked.
I smiled, but on the inside I wondered if I was like that. I turned to her and pulled my blond hair up into a messy pony. "Well, there's this guy..." I started, grinning mischeviously. I swiped a first coat of polish onto my nail. Then, I turned to her excitedly.
Sammie grinned. "Okay, so you probably know him.." She said slowly, pausing for effect. She tossed her hair and examined her nails, leaning her head back and closing her eyes before looking up at her again. "Isaac."
