What the hell is wrong with me? Who did I screw over in a past life to have my life turned into a total mess?! Things typically work out for me and luck is on my side but ever since my first semester, I've been breaking things and my life has been a mess! A few weeks into my first semester at college, I took a nap while watching Netflix. Apparently, my twin size bed cannot fit me and my laptop. My poor $1,300 computer plummeted to the ground while open. Side note, my bed was so high I needed a running start to get onto it. Let's just skip to the part where I woke up and found my Mac screen cracked up the middle. Yay! Soon after that, my car got an oil leak and not just a small oil leak. One that turned my 3-hour trip home into a seven-hour trip home at 4 a.m. But I had to drive it home, how else would I get it home? Needless to say, that was hell. This brings me to Christmas break, when I broke every single fragile Christmas gift I got. A total of four glass pieces were shattered.
Next, during my second semester, I did the unthinkable. The most disturbing of all accidents. I dropped my phone in the toilet! Instantly unresponsive. But there was a quick solution available to me and I was able to get a brand new phone. But don't get too excited. I shattered that phone about two weeks after I left the store with it. I dropped my shatter resistant phone on the sidewalk and that was all it took. That takes me into summer break. I managed to misplace an envelope of $120. When I got back to school, the trouble only continued. This time, bad luck wasn't playing any games.
About one month of being at school, I got a flat tire on I-95 at 7:30 a.m. on my way to work. That was $150 fix and 35% increase on my stress. Later that week, my car started to sound like it was going to blow up. I spent my Sunday morning driving around trying to find someone to look at it and possibly fix it, but the shops that happened to be open would not/could not help me. That's another 30% stress increase. When I got home, feeling almost defeated by the impossible semester I'm having and my unlucky auto week, I updated that nice cracked mac computer. The update burned my hard drive and it will no longer turn on. Being a college student without a computer is great! I couldn't afford to have it fixed right away so I ordered an affordable tablet and keyboard combo to hold me over. With little surprise, the tablet came in and is horrible.
At this point, I have boiled over in stress. The Keyboard doesn't work and the tablet itself does not work up to standards. I don't know why everything is falling apart for me. Perhaps my luck is running out. Maybe this is karma. I don't know. But I will tell you, my semester is kicking my butt and if these trends continue, I will implode. I'm currently at about 150% stress level, so I we shall see when I hit maximum capacity. It should be soon...
