Where Do I Start?
I sort of wish I was a bear right now. All they ever have to do is eat and hibernate. They never worry about the minute troubles that us humans do (Well, I don't think so at least. I'm afraid I have never been a bear. Yet.). Let me explain to you how this hell-hole of a week has been for me so far. On Monday, I had to wear a splint on my hand because it has been discovered that I have Carpal Tunnel Syndrome in my right hand. Stupid laptop that causes repetitive motion. You have no idea how hard it is to take notes from a teacher to speaks 3424 words per second whilst your palm and wrist are throbbing. Tuesday, I got my benchmark exam back-- C. The sad thing is that I was so confident that I had gotten an A. Wishful thinking, I guess. Wednesday, I walked into school before the bell rang to sit with my friends. We talked about how we all had a gut-feeling that the day was going to be horrible. It was, considering I came across three people who said they found money in their pockets that morning, I had missed my bus, and I had made myself tea that morning for the bus stop, but couldn't even bring it because my hands were full of textbooks. A perfectly delicious berry tea to waste. When I got home that day, my parents had a surprise for my brother and not me. He gets travel to Georgia with my dad. Had they ever thought that maybe I want to miss school and see my grandparents?! I guess not. Today was not as bad as the other days actually, but I guess that's just to give me a break because tomorrow will be a whole new series of unfortunate events (pun intended).
