Worst First Day of School Ever
I have had approximately 16 first days of school in my lifetimes. And there have definitely been some rough ones in there. First day of elementary school is scary, first day of middle school is awkward, first day of high school is intimidating, but who would have thought that I would have to travel all the way to Ireland to have the worst first day of school in my life! This is a quickie of how my day went. (I already typed it out on time and I got kicked off line so this isn’t going to go into as much detail about it all, it will be more of a rundown, but in the end I would probably have bored you with the details anyway). Woke up at 8, took a shower after two of my roommates- no hot water. Went to class at 9, teacher didn’t show up. Went to pick up my student ID card, office hours don’t start until 10 am. Walk to the second farthest building on campus to find out why the teacher didn’t show up at 9. found out seminar courses don’t begin until next week. Go back to the student union and wait for my next class. Go there at 12, zero people show up. Walk with Brian to the farthest building on campus to find out why no one showed up to the second class, class room was changed earlier that day. Awesome. Go back to center of campus to try to pick up course descriptions in different departments. Basically end up running around campus for the next 3 hours doing that. Eventually have to go back to that furthest building again, fml. Go to try to pick up my ID now, note on the door that says ID cards wont be ready until later this week. Of course they wont. Walk back to Hubick’s place, much closer to campus than mine. Sit there for an hour waiting until my last class of the day at 5 pm. Walk back in the freezing, sit through the class, actually got to one today (1 for 3 not bad). Get home, feel like death, try to battle through a fever and sore throat bc it’s the first day back for all the irish students. Go out, a lot of fun, meet some pretty cool irish guys that live in Brian and Bobby’s apartment. Find my keys that I lost 3 days earlier (highlight of my day), go back home. Maybe get an hour of sleep the entire night. End of worst day ever. As they say, the sun will come out tomorrow. But if it does and it looks like this I don’t want it to.
