It’s been a long week. How do I cope with long weeks? I talk about them.
Get ready. (That is also code for ‘You’ve been warned.’)
Here is everything that contributed to the badness/longness of the week. In a convenient list too!
My car broke down (But is fixed thanks to a VERY kind mechanic and EVEN MORE kind and loving parents. Furthermore, I’ve been assured that this cause was not my fault at all, but was actually time’s fault. Time and the desert and the mountains and the summer and winter and snow and rain and life).
I had an exam.
I had a project due.
I cried a lot.
I ate crappy pizza (in our defense, we didn’t know it was going to be crappy).
I lost a fight with a granola bar box. I was trying to open it and it retaliated. I now have two parallel
paper cardboard cuts on my index finger, right below my nail. Ouch.
I didn’t sleep a lot.
I woke up early.
I had to navigate the least helpful website on the internet, the UTA website (I was successful).
I thought I missed the bus yesterday morning when trying to get from the mechanic to school so I walked the 15ish (it was probably only ten) blocks to school (turns out I didn’t miss the bus and it drove by me while I was walking).
I accidentally updated my iPhone to iOS 7. Whoops. Don’t like it, but that is probably because I wasn’t prepared.
I now have to close this evening because the girl who I traded shifts with decided she couldn’t close.
But let’s look at some positives (also in a convenient list!):
I survived the exam.
The project was the Big One of the semester for that class and now it is OVER! Huzzah! And I turned it in on time. It was due, via email, at 1159 PM. I hit send at 1154 PM. hashtag winning. Also under the hashtag winning, I understood how to complete the project, which is good!
I have great friends who are willing to help me out and give me a ride home after rehearsal (in fact, I have multiple friends who would be willing to do so, as they let me all know as I recounted my saga to them).
It was my parent’s anniversary. How is this a positive for me? I don’t know, it just feels like it is. And my mom uploaded the most adorable picture of them right after their wedding. They both had really good hair. Did I mention it is adorable?
I wasn’t the one who broke my car.
Furthermore, my car is fixable. (Confession: my car is really just a convenience. I mean, I actually do need it for orchestra, but other than that, it is just really really really convenient)
I don’t have to close at work on Saturday (which for all of you playing along at home, is tomorrow).
I get to go watch the BYU/Utah football game at my good friend Kylie’s house.
I got a surprise!nap yesterday. It was lovely.
It’s an F1 weekend!! Yes, I will be parked on the couch at 545 AM Sunday morning to watch. Duh.
It’s getting cooler, yay fall!
I had hot chocolates #1 and #2 of the season this week. As much as I love summer, I love fall even more.
I had a very lovely (albeit uphill) walk yesterday.
I received, also a surprise, new eyeliner and some eye shadow from my momma. Yay surprise packages! Yay mom! Thanks mom!
I still feel like the negatives overshadowed the positives. Where do I apply for a new, less stressful week? Oh, yes. Sunday. I’ll go fill out the application.
