My Very Bad Day

Y’all. This is already one of the worst days of 2018 for me. Hopefully this will be the worst and it’s all uphill from here. I’m only 8 days in and already having a terrible, horrible, no good, very bad day like my little homie Alexander.

So the day started off with me waking up on the wrong side of the bed. Literally. It’s been downhill ever since.  My alarm goes off and somehow I thought I hit snooze but well, y’all know how that goes. I thought I hit snooze but turned it off. I see I set my alarm for an earlier time because I needed or rather wanted, to be in the office earlier than normal because it was supposed to be freezing rain in the afternoon, If you know anything about driving or maneuvering around Atlanta than you know that even when it nice and sunny outside traffic is horrible. Let a little rain come down and it’s mayhem. I was trying to avoid this by coming in early and leaving early to avoid the rush. Well, I woke up 30 minutes after I had planned on being in the office. Fuck.

So I get myself together and finally make it to the office. When I get there the big bosses call a meeting of all the staff. We’re all huddled, it’s not that many of us in the office, in this kind of middle open space area. The boss starts talking about the weather and how corporate will likely call him to say that we can all go home. I’m thinking cool. I came to work late and get to go home early. Then he says that he’s not waiting on corporate due to the numerous different conflicting weather reports. He doesn’t want anyone to be stuck on the road because they waited too late to send people home. I mean they are all the way in Arizona and he’s here so he has a better understanding. Okay, whatever. but he says you guys can go home at 930am. Umm it’s like 845am already. So I’m a little peeved. I mean I’ve gone through all this to get here for just an hour? uggh. Oh wait, I didn’t mention the in-between time and stuff that happened from when I woke up to when I arrived at work.

Okay, so I woke up on the wrong side of the bed. Like for real. I typically sleep on one side just because it’s comfortable.  I went to bed one way and woke up a totally different direction. like for real, a totally different direction. I went to bed normally and woke up across the bed. I don’t know how to describe it but I’m sure you understand. On top of that, because of the way I slept I ended up with a crook in my neck. That’s still there. so like I said earlier, my alarm goes off, I turn it off instead of hitting snooze so I wake up later than expected. like 30 minutes after I had scheduled myself to be at work, type later. Anyway since I’m already late might as well do some deep grooming and relax right? I mean I’m already late. So I decide to hop in the shower and steam for a while afterwards as well as shave my head. My head didn’t really need to be shaved but hey, might as well since I have the extra time, right? Wrong. I end up cutting my head on the second and very very very unnecessary, passthrough. Now I have this gash on the front right side of my head. Uggh. Insert heavy sigh and eye roll. Whatever. so I come out of the bathroom and stub my toe on the door of the bathroom! I’m hopping around in pain and as soon as the pain subsides and I’m able to put my foot down I take a step and you guessed it, stub the same toe on the end of the bed! At this point I’m ready to just call it a morning and crawl back in bed. Nah, I gotta soldier on and make the most of it. I’m already awake, have my clothes out and all.

I finally get dressed, grab my bag and I’m ready to go. only thing is, I grab the wrong bag. See I have this thing with sneakers and bags. I have a lot of both. I know I know. I don’t need all the bags or shoes but I got them anyway. Fight me. Anyway, I picked up my gym bag instead of my work bag. I use a backpack for the gym not a dufflebag. Not a fan of duffles. I didn’t find this out until it was pretty much too late to go back and get the correct bag. In retrospect this kind of worked out since I was only in the office for a freaking hour!

So back to work. I leave after being there for an hour and since I already have my bag, I decide to go to the gym. Tuh! They are closed! why? I don’t know but they were. So I head home to take a nap. Can’t sleep. Insomnia has been an issue these past few days, weeks, months or even years (shout out to Friends). One bright side is that when I arrived home I had a package waiting for me. y’all know I love me some packages. It was my MacBook Air. I finally converted to the dark side after I went through like 2 laptops last year. Not again. I’m actually typing on it now.  I did throw a bit of a tantrum when I first got it. There is a bit of a learning curve coming from PC to Mac. Nothing I can’t handle but not what I wanted to deal with on this very bad day. I just think I need a do over. going back to bed *tosses laptop to other side of bed and pulls covers over my head*. Good night.
