For the first time in a year and a half, I own a raincoat*. With my upcoming trip to Vancouver, where it is consistently sprinkling, I decided it was high time that I got a proper raincoat.
The shopping process was a little ridiculous; a lot of me being a flailing fool while my mother tolerated me. In the end, I got a coat that fits nicely, covers my bum, and has a proper hood.

*My cheapy one gave out almost 2 years ago. I’ve been using the one my mom left with me in Halifax for the time in between.
