Wow, it’s hard to believe that we are here.
I still am trying to process that I am a junior in college.
This episode follows the day of the solar eclipse on August 21st, 2017. It was a bit of a crazy day.
Thank you for reading! Enjoy!
This episode starts with my morning shower. It was the second time I was showering in my first apartment. There had been a problem with the drain so my dad had stopped by and poured some stuff down it and it was working correctly. I was excited to shower without four inches of water at the bottom of the tub.
As I stepped into the shower, I realized that the knock-off bath bomb my mom had put in the shower was getting wet. She had placed it on the shelf made for a bar of soap. I picked it up and went to move it to the corner up by the spout where the spray of the shower wouldn’t reach it.
Suddenly as I leaned over, the next thing I knew I was laying in the tub. My elbows
particularly my right one broke my fall for the most part but my backside and my neck weren’t feeling so hot neither. The shower curtain was in a disarray and a ceramic dish I had on my bathroom vanity had fallen, thankfully landing on my stomach. The knock-off bath bomb ended up on the opposite side of the bathroom on the floor.
I got up and took my shower, making sure to pop some Advil after I got out. I got dressed and after setting up my utilities, I headed to my job interview.
Pulling up to the building, I was a bit confused. It was a security building and ironically the area looked a bit sketchy. I didn’t get out of my car, but I double checked my emails with the company. I then came to realize that I was not at the correct address
even though I had plugged it into the GPS, still haven’t figured out how that happened . I had fifteen minutes until my interview. I rerouted my GPS and as I drove I came to the realization that the company’s office space is in the middle of a downtown area. That meant I would have to deal with parking. I began to scour for a place. I made peace with the fact that parallel parking was a great possibility. I tried multiple times to get into a spot but realized that the cars in front and in back of the spot I was trying to use had went over their respective spaces and I wasn’t going to fit.
I turned the corner of the street and thank goodness there was a standard spot. I walked in and was in a bank lobby. Did I mention that it was 2:03 and my interview was at 2? A woman came over to me
she must have been able to tell I was frazzled and confused. She brought me to a directory but a different entrance. But then we couldn’t find the company I was interviewing at. I looked through my emails again and they had mentioned the third floor.
I took the elevator to the third floor and inquired with the secretary and thankfully the company was there and she would let them know I was there. Sighing in relief, I went to go sit down. At that moment, I could feel that my blood sugar had decided to start to drop.
I’m a type 1 diabetic if ya didn’t know. The secretary had offered me candy from her bowl and so I turned around and took a starburst. I didn’t have time to sit down before I was greeted by one of the people interviewing me. And I had stuck a whole starburst in my mouth.
I followed her to an office space and greeted the other person interviewing me. Me being me, I apologized for being late and having just stuffed a whole Starburst in my mouth.
Throughout the interview, I was
in my opinion extremely chatty and due to my low blood sugar I was having a little difficulty controlling myself when it came to the spinny chairs. There were several times when I had to stop myself from twirling around as the interview was taking place.
Leaving, I figured it went pretty well or awful – I couldn’t exactly tell at the moment. Honestly, I was very surprised that they agreed to still see my after I arrived five minutes late to the interview.
Later that night, I decided that after the grueling day that I had, I decided that I deserved a relaxing night. I got some snacks, put on some comfy clothes and turned on my TV so I could watch some Netflix.
With the way I have my room set up in my apartment, I can lay across my bed and watch TV. For a visual, click here for a room tour! As I flopped down, my foot hit the wall. It hurt and I heard a crack. Cursing under my breath, I looked at my foot and sure enough, I had broken my big toe. The nail split down the middle, about half way.
I then spent the next 30 minutes on the phone with my mom
who is a cosmetologist and eventually I fixed it before I finally layed down. I watched an episode of Friends (or should it be F.R.I.E.N.D.S? I don’t know. . .) before falling asleep.
