Christmas shopping for people and retail therapy when I am sad. Just a few clicks and the money is spent.
BRYAN: Any plans today?
ME (TYPICAL CINDY ANSWER): Stay home and cry
ME: What about you?
BRYAN: Gonna stay home and eat and go out Black Friday shopping
BRYAN (FIVE MINUTES LATER): Have fun crying!
I made up the exam I missed that unfortunate day when there was an accident on the 60. I’ve been constantly bothered because I am not used to being so out of control of my life. To be punished for an event I had no control over is absurd. I feel a burden lifted off my shoulders as one by one, I finally cross things off my to-do list. I very much rather it be a bucket list, but priorities come first. I’m thankful.
In addition to the good fortune that I might not actually be penalized at all, I find it astounding that a classmate of mine actually took the time to Facebook me and ask me how the exam went. Not only did I score fairly well, but I had someone that is nearly a stranger to me remember the day that I am to take my exam and do a little follow up on me. It should be insignificant to him! I’m just not used to having people around me in academics because I am nearly always alone at school. I don’t mind it, but I am surprise every time.
I hate calling AT&T or other business services because they have a million automated filters to send you to the correct agent. I hate it even more when after ten minutes, that office you want to reach is close.
