My (not so) Epic Day

All this week I have been going to bed at an indecent hour. It hasn't been a big deal because the earliest I have had work has been at 1pm. This morning I had an appointment with my advisor to schedule my classes. I know it is ridiculously late to sign up for classes but I had to wait for a lot of things this summer.

Actually, I blame the test taking abilities I had in high school. If I had done well with my SATs/ACTs, I would have gotten into the School of Ed sooner and therefore sign up for classes on time.

This morning I woke up, got ready for the day was about to go out the door to go to my appointment. (This story is exciting already, huh?) I do my routine check of my purse: phone, wallet, random sock, keys... wait... CRAP! Okay, don't panic. Keys are often not where they are supposed to be, at least any set of keys I own. I swear I put them where they are supposed to be but they decide they like to make me late.

I guess looking for my keys is a morning ritual, same as going to the bathroom or running a brush through my hair. So I retrace my steps from last night. Wait... did I drive last night? No! Boyfriend did... and the keys are more obedient to him and seem to stay where they are supposed to. Well, let's text this gentleman caller. (P.S. He is in Midland, i am in Abilene)

Fair Maiden Chelsea  What did you do with my keys (Realizing of course while I'm typing this that he has them)

Boy Fellow Oh gosh. I'm sooooo sorry, but they're still in my pocket. I can't believe I forgot
Fair Maiden Chelsea What?? Crap i dont know what im going to do (Obviously punctuation is not my greatest concern right now)

Boy Fellow Ugh, I'm sooooo sorry. I just had so much in my pocket that I couldn't feel them.

Fair Maiden Chelsea Its fine. Im just trying to find a ride (Be patient Chelsea, this could happen to anyone. You have done dumber things. Don't yell at him. Don't yell at him.)

Boy Fellow Wow, I can't believe I did that. It's a good thing I'm coming back tomorrow

Fair Maiden Chelsea Its okay. Not a big deal (ITS A HUGE DEAL! HOW AM I GOING TO GET AROUND! IM GOING TO HAVE TO DROP OUT OF COLLEGE!!! OH YOU BETTER BRING THEM BACK TOMORROW OR I AM STEALING YOUR KEYS)

Okay, really wasn't a big deal. Honestly wasn't freaking out that much and I had a slight moment of not knowing what I was going to do. Jenny ended up coming to the rescue and I got to sign up for my classes and hang out with friends before and after work.
I told them I got off work at six. Which is true...every other day. This poor child's parents, however, miscommunicated with each other and so after some calls, I got off work at 6:30.

We went and saw the NSO cheer-offs. I had flashbacks and an impromptu dance party, which surprisingly(or not so surprisingly) wore me out. Afterwards we hung out at their house (The Burrow) and watched Percy Jones, which by the way is an amazing movie.
