  • If you tried to sum up my personality into an ice cream flavor it wouldn't taste very good. It would be a complicated mixture of flavors and textures which would constantly change in pretty close correlation with the weather. It might be a successful flavor if featured in a Willy Wonka factory because it would almost seem to posses magical qualities. My personality might be more successfully expressed in the version of an ice-cream store, where all the flavors and toppings could be separated and displayed in a less complicated way. But then again maybe not, because where would the magic be in that?

    On a snowy day the ice-cream would be filled with crunchy bursts of excitement and swirls of adventure and an after taste filled with the feeling of flight. This can be attributed to the best activity a snowy day can offer; snowboarding. And those are the very emotions I feel while up in the mountains on a snowy day. However, just wait until a rainy spring afternoon when the clouds start to roll in and shield the sun. The ice cream would taste a little bit more frost bitten and each spoonful would have a hint of contemplation and reflection; the very state of mind that so often consumes me while being cramped inside on a stormy day.
