Okay, so most of today was really rotten (pretty much everything before 6:30). It was my breaking point after several days of not feeling well and just feeling sad. Not depressed. I had no desire to do myself in or anything like that. There was just this sadness brought on by a variety of things (including the fact that I’m starting to realize that our family really has lost a member, and life is going to be different). Then, there was this epic moment when I went to get lunch, and as I was about to pour my drink, my tray slipped and tray, food, and dishes all went tumbling to the ground, making sure to completely cover my jacket and pants. I was already a basket case at that point, so I pretty much ran from the cafeteria. Fortunately, no one clapped. This was surprising, because I don’t think I’ve ever been in there when a tray goes down and there is no clapping. I’m particularly thankful there was no clapping, because I think I would’ve started crying right there, instead of crying once I got back to the dorm. However, it may take me awhile before I can face that dining center again. I may try the other two on campus.
On the bright side, the evening totally made up for the rest of the day. At one point I was informed that I’m Rapunzel from Tangled. There was a lot of laughter, and that definitely helped buoy the spirits.
And in a few hours, snow will be here.
