A College Student And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

It's gonna get better. Or not. No matter what, I still want to go to sleep and wait for midnight to arrive.

A College Student And The Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

Dear the Me I will be tomorrow,

Today sucked. Today blew. Today could not get any worse - great, now I just jinxed myself!

Hopefully, you are laughing at me. I am praying you are making fun of me, feeling better, over the small annoyances that plagued me today. I hope all your dreams come true. I would like to think you just won a million dollars, stopped watching Netflix, or were in Disney World...ugh, I miss Disney World. That fairy godmother would give me less stress instead of a pretty dress if you know what I'm saying.

I'm exhausted both mentally and emotionally. It's like my schoolwork and my drama met and decided to get it on right in front of me. And it's not even that cute kind of hookup. It's that drunk hookup that they did just to blind me and make me vulnerable to the cluster-baby the two made for me. I know, Me, I have had bad days before. But this is the worst! You gotta believe me!

First, I forgot to do my homework last night, and don't be disappointed! We both know that the next Sunday me will be watching football all night instead of doing work! Anyway, I set my alarms two hours earlier, so I could get up and get my work done. Seven in the morning is not the earliest I had to get up, and I was in bed by midnight- more than enough time!

My alarm went off. I think I groaned. I turned it off. I slept for two more hours.

I see you shaking your head, Me! It was a long weekend filled with drama! I needed the extra hours! And my bed was comfy...and I was...okay, I was lazy! Sorry!

Moving on, I got up for my first class which because that homework was surprisingly done, and I...I...skipped the class I forgot to do homework for! Three weeks into school and the sophomore slump has begun. At that point of the day, I had grown comfortable with the fact that I was most likely going to fail out of school.

And you know that drama that happened over the weekend? Hopefully, it's gone for tomorrow, but today it still lingers in our friend group. It's annoying, but I am trying to just "chill" like everyone has been telling everyone else to do. So yes, I started watching Stranger Things! I was weak and trying to "chill!" I know i just finished Quantico too. I was spineless and weak today. You are the strong one!

Then, you know that boy we like? You most likely will still like him tomorrow if you have a brain. Well, he saw me with my pink headband on! We both know the pink headband makes us look like we are literally seven years old! So yes, I literally ran the other way. No shame! Actually, I had a lot of shame, but I am just trying to get over myself and the fact that I hid.

At least my friend made buffalo chicken dip out of the horrible dinning food. I will never know how she makes something so beautiful, but maybe you and the other Me's will find out. So I ate that...and six tacos...and I didn't go to the gym...and now my stomach is cramping with all sorts of bad things!

And finally, I made myself look like a fool in front of my whole dinning hall because I was messing with my friend as he sniped me on camera...so I ran up to him at the window in a really "attractive" way, somehow thinking that no one would see me. Everyone did. Everyone.

And now, I am at work, trying to get my like together, literally having the biggest fantasy about getting into my bed and sleeping! Let me just sleep the day away.

You have such a beautiful blank slate tomorrow, so I just wanted to let you know about today. You have such a positive outlook compared to the Me I am now- the one who has been worn down to nothing. You can do it. You can fix everything. You could be laughing at the annoying little weasel I am today.

Or you can be in Disney World.

I hope you are in Disney World.

Love, with all of my emotionally drained heart,

The Me of this Terrible, Horrible, No Good, Very Bad Day

P.S. I'll be crying myself to sleep in the corner, so if you wake up with a sore neck, sorry about that.

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

No one prepares you for the honeymoon phase wearing off

Heart on a Wet Sleeve

Let's start off with the simple fact that God made everyone differently. That statement could not be more evident. We try to embrace our differences and set ourselves apart from the rest of the world. What that doesn't prepare us for is when we yearn for a characteristic of someone else. For example, have you ever met someone who can experience this great heart ache and hardly shed a tear? This person just had their heart ripped out and they find a way to carry themselves through it with great composure. Well, not all of us have that desirable trait. Some of us wear our hearts on our wet sleeves. When a person has their heart on their sleeve, it can be viewed as a good thing, that the individual isn't shallow. However,
