The Link Between Rain, Bad Relationships And Insomnia

Day 3/365: It’s been raining non-stop for the past 48 hours, so yeah, insomnia and bad relationships!


Imagine the next scene: Poorly-lit bus station. Two men sitting on the bench. One of them wears a suit and has a briefcase, while the other is dressed casually. Suddenly, the rain starts pouring down heavily. The regularly dressed guy, a genius, savant, whatnot, makes some remarks culminating with the one below.

Rain. Another great equalizer. Falling on the head of the brilliant, and the unremarkable alike

For the fans of The Big Bang Theory, one of the best TV series ever produced, this scene is no secret. In fact, I love it so much, because it shows you that no matter how smart you think you are, sometimes you can be as dumb as a bag of rocks. Sheldon forgot his umbrella at home, and when the rain started and the unremarkable dude opened his, the smart one had no choice but to turn his head and exclaim “smarty pants”.

Bad Relationships

Although rain is a great equalizer indeed, it can also teach us a lot about destructive relationships. We all love rain but imagine a three or four or seven days straight rain. It starts feeling wrong, right? It’s not that pleasant anymore, even if you really REALLY love rain.

In fact, in these situations, rain is the nagging, constantly checking up on you, overly interested and protective, always liking your Facebook posts the second you post them, easily irritable, highly prone to drama, significant other from any abnormal, heading for disaster relationship.


I’m rambling. To be honest, I started this article at 2 AM last night, when dear Insomnia, a friend of mine who shows up from time to time, decided to surprise me. It’s been raining for two days straight here, which is not helping the mild, yet unpleasant “end-of-the-holidays-season” blues that I’m dealing with not even a tiny bit. The cure? A mix of some crappy take-out later, maybe pizza, and overclocking my brain with studying a ton about itself.

I hope that soon, somewhere in this amazing Psychology course that I’m taking right now, I’ll stumble upon the explanation for why does my brain think about this kind of stuff at 2 in the morning.

In the meantime, the rain stopped…
