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.
You know we love you. And you’re more than welcome to come get your spirits lifted anytime you need! We may be dysfunctional, but we are your school family!!!
