7:00 AM: I didn’t want to wake up today. When my alarm clock went off with that super-annoying octave jump I wanted to throw it against the wall. This semester, I’ve been a morning person. I like waking up before the sun and squeezing one more hour of work out of my day.
Just not today. Possibly because I was up well past midnight trying to write about health care.
10:30: Today, Katie sends me to hang a poster on the bottom floor of the TSC and to the bookstore to look for a trophy (?) for the quiz bowl The bookstore people look at me like I’m crazy. I stand awkwardly in the TSC, trying to hang a poster on a wire. I finally ask this guy for a chair, and walk up and down the hall trying to find the RIGHT wire, because it has to be between wire 8 and 12. The wires, however, are not in order. I stand awkwardly again on the chair, trying to hang it myself and realizing how stupid I look.
12:00 PM It snowed today. Big, fat, wet, flakes that were just enough to make my shoes wet. I should have hated it. In case you didn’t know, I’m not the biggest fan of snow. Or cold. I made an exception today. It was disgusting outside but it pleased me.
4:45 My R.A is right outside my door, explaining the intricacies of half-baths and bad carpet to some wide-eyed, slightly bewildered, 17-year olds. The A-day-ers have been everywhere, bringing with them an air of excitement, nervousness, and who knows what else. I never came to A-day. Seeing them made me kind of glad.
5:10: Today, I’m on my way out the door to Salt Lake. Goodbye world. I’m off to the Festival of Colors.
