I now have two assignments left to do before the semester comes to an end. I’m taking a break from it, it is getting late and I have most of tomorrow morning to finish them off. One is due tomorrow at 4:00pm, a 7 page paper that is supposed to be a take-home exam but it might as well be a full scale paper on racism, and the other is my journal assignment for my ethics class, which is due next Monday. So I am just taking a break before I head off to sleep and hopefully I will get a good nights sleep before my little corner of chaos starts up again.
Today also marks one of the worst days I have had at work in a long time. First, I forgot my keys. I drove all the way out to Chilliwack, BC, about a two hour drive, and ended up having to turn around back to Surrey, BC to get the damn keys. During that time one of the people that I was supposed to meet out in Chilliwack came into Surrey, BC to meet with me where he wanted a copy of his keys because he had lost his. We missed each other by minutes apparently. It was a comedy of errors right from the get go. On my way home after I came back from the office my vehicle ran out of gas while my gas gage was showing that I had at least a quarter of a tank left in it. What a way to discover that I have a broken gas gage—right at the Langley By-Pass!
When I got home I started right away on finishing some of my homework. Just as I was getting into the writing someone started knocking at my door—one of my neighbours needs a hand with his dead car battery. I’m a nice guy—I help him out. Once back writing again the phone rings—it’s a text massage, a 911 call from another friend who is informing me that he is having a party this weekend and I’m invited. I pull the battery from my phone. Peace and quiet now seem impossible.
So here I am now, tired, but happy that I accomplished a lot due to the circumstance. Soon, within days I will be able to walk among the living again and enjoy the lazy days of…. oh shoot, it’s almost winter out now. BOO!
