As I placed my tea in it's home next to me in front of the computer and I was peacefully sailing the waves of the internet. Suddenly, I was struck by the realization that I had forgotten something outrageously important.
My peaceful day quickly shattered by panic, dread, and that feeling of "you dummy, why didn't you double check your dates?"
Brain spews forth the news that I had better check my school schedule and sure enough there it is--the first day of classes. I already missed my first class!
I sprint to the shower, on my way I grab my phone and call my husband. He has the car and there is no answer on the other end. I shower rapidly and make another attempt to reach him as I head to my room. Finally, he is on the phone.
What an interestingly awkward beginning to Spring Quarter.
