The hot mess that is my life—Pt 1

6:20 A.M. —Woke up to the sound of a beloved mother vacuuming. Thought “how annoying.” Briefly considered dream that included random placement of platonic male friend (could it mean something?). Briefly considered my laziness in how I fell asleep instead of finishing homework and massive pages of reading last night. Briefly depressed at the thought of massive pages of readings before falling back asleep.

8:05 A.M.—Re-AWOKE. Checked emails, glanced at a few blogs, glanced at a couple royal wedding photos (loved Kate’s dress), checked facebook…Finally updated planner the way that Jessica does as I peeked in her planner the last time she opened it and saw that she lists tasks next to a little box that she checks off.

8:20ish A.M.—Showered and conditioned hair. While showering, thought how wonderful to have time to do homework and make breakfast before I have to leave for class at 11:10.

9:30 A.M.—Had breakfast while watching and listening to this. Beautiful—and her song’s sentiments are so true for me, too.

Thought, "I really need to eat clean like this always."

10:00 A.M.—Finally finally started homework. Thought it shouldn’t take me any more than one hour, leaving me a little time to leave home and walk to train station making it on time for Linguistics class at 11:10.

45 minutes later—still on first problem for Linguistics!!! Realized that six problems will probably take me 28 hours to complete, since I STILL haven’t completed all the readings. And if I did the readings, would probably take me sixteen hours to complete.

(Basically I am trying to analyze sentence grammar based on the complex language rules)

Gave up on homework figuring I’ve been a week—two?—late submitting it already, so what's another weekend. Packed bag, grabbed yogurt and grapefruit from kitchen and headed out.

11:05 A.M.—Thought, “WOW, it’s so sunny out here today. I don’t remember it being so bright when I headed out for class in the past.”

11:07 A.M.—LIGHTNING BOLT MOMENT: “Wait a minute!! I’m suppose to be in class at 11:10, not leaving my house at 11:10!!”

UH, WOE IS ME. LE SIGH. WHERE IS MY HEAD?!!! I CAN’T BELIEVE THE THINGS THAT HAPPEN TO ME. I THINK SPRING BREAK TOTALLY FRIED MY BRAIN.

Anyways, got to train platform mildly depressed.

When train came, man bumped into me with his bum cart—and then after I took this photo, I feared for my life that he was going to come over and stab me.

Then I noticed the man across from me wearing a t-shirt with a Chinese takeout menu on it’s front, stretched over his large belly.  I think that might just be the greediest thing I’ve ever seen ever.


To be continued, as these things happen to me…
