so to start it off, it was almost eleven. i was sitting in my bed in my pajamas facebooking. my dad came in and asked what my schedule was like for the semester. this was the zillionth time i have looked at my schedule over the summer (mainly the past few days) so i pretty much knew it by heart. i get halfway through and think, wait a minute... thats only four classes. i know i registered for five. i go back to the schedule i had just looked at and see 'Monday 1:30 IT 441 Prince William.' this class was bad luck.*
of course i panic because i have to shower, get dressed, and all that stuff (which takes around half an hour), go to fairfax campus to drop off anisah (which takes around 25 minutes), park (which can take anywhere from 5-45 minutes) take the shuttle to prince william (which takes about an hour), and get to class. i was also supposed to buy a parking permit since mine expired today.
so i take the world's fastest shower (the water heater wasnt turned on until i was practically getting out) and, shivering like crazy, put on the first clothes my hand touched. i throw my wallet and keys into my empty school bag and ran downstairs. halfway down, i remember my older sister had my car keys (they were given to her before we left for the summer "in case of an emergency") so i ask my parents for their keys (actually i stood on the stairs and called out that i needed keyes asap) and finally start to school. of course, the tires are making weird clicking sounds because theyve been locked for so long or something (my dad explained it, i nodded and took the keys) and they changed around the roads around campus. they closed the one i usually took and opened new ones. slightly confusing. i get to campus, find parking in the new parking deck which was awesome luck and go to the shuttle stop, only it's not the shuttle stop anymore. they got new shuttle stops too and closed some of the old ones. so i eventually find the shuttle stop and get on the bus. but even though i now no longer have anything to panic about, i cant get rid of the feeling that im running late. i hate it when that happens.
*the class is/was bad luck. i almost didnt register for it (i was registered for a security class instead) but at the last minute realized i needed another networking class to graduate and so had to drop my security class and register for this one. it was the only one that even barely fit into my schedule. it turned out to not be so bad (lectures are all recorded and put online "in case we cant make it to a lecture." i see myself not making a lot of lectures), and there are actually 4 girls in it (out of a class of 15)! thats a lot for an IT class.
