It’s going to be one of those days. First, I was running late to work. Or at least, I thought I was. Then I got to my office about 10 minutes early. Ok, so that was actually better than I thought. So I check some mail and head to the library where my students had a researching assignment. Half of them were not prepared (i.e. – no pen or paper) but somehow they all did the assignment. Well, all except one girl. She comes in about 10 minutes late, dressed to the nines and sits at my table. She came only to sign up for conference but told me that pledging to the sorority takes up so much time she doesn’t have time for school. This wasn’t a complaint; she was telling this to me matter-of-factly. Then she admitting to knowing she’d take an absence for the day, seeming not to care. Wow – why don’t you just drop out of college?
After leaving the library – a little later than class normally gets out – I went into the Union for a bagel. I was trying to be lazy and catch the bus but of course, it pulled up when I was about half a block away. I started running/jogging, spilling my drink and missing said bus. So I ended up walking and it wasn’t even that bad. I don’t know what I was thinking. But things seem better now; I am back to my office, reading soem papers and it’s already 10:30, which seems a lot later than I thought it was. So yeah, how’s everyone else’s Thursday going?
