Baaaad daaay....

I knew there was a reason I didn't want to get out of bed this morning.
You know you're going to have a bad day when you dream that it's four in the morning, and your sister has turned on the light to get ready for school, and then you look at your clock and realize that you're awake, and it's seven and you wanted to be up an hour earlier to do homework you were too lazy to do during the break.  Then when you actually try to do said homework, you realize that it's proofs, and you absolutely hate proofs, and then you realize the teacher never actually taught half of your assignment, and you don't have time to look in the book for it because you leave for school soon and you're still in your pajamas.
So you try the assignment but just don't get any of it, but you decide you're going to give life a chance anyway.
Bad idea.
So you get to school and turn in your half-done assignment, attend class, then head downstairs to hop on Facebook to calm yourself down, then download an assignment for another class and check your reading for yet another class.
And then your worst nightmare comes true.  The school internet is malfunctioning.  Again.  So you try and try and try to get connected.  Finally you're on, and you breathe a sigh of relief.  You decide to skip Facebook, because you lost so much time trying to get online.  You've also decided you're done taking chances and download all remaining assignments for your class instead of just the one you were planning on.  You do not want to do this again.  After finishing your various assignments, you go to the library to watch a video for a class, and sadly it is checked out.  All right, no big deal.  There are three other videos you can watch.  So you go to look them up on your iTouch.
Your iTouch that won't connect to the school internet.
So after five minutes of trying to get on and failing miserably, you slouch your way over to one of the tables to check on your laptop, and you groan because you know it will have to connect again.  It takes three tries, connecting and disconnecting over and over again, to get online, and even then, the internet is ridiculously slow.  You want to give a loud moan, but you can't because you're in the library, and there's someone sitting across from you who will look at you funny, and you don't want to have to explain. 
You finally get onto the right site and take half a minute to get the titles of the other videos you can watch.  You get the video.  You put the video on one of the library monitors.  You put on the headphones so you don't disturb other library patrons.  Then you realize your volume is off, so you turn it up so you actually get something out of the documentary.
You realize the volume is off.  You decide to pull off your headphones to check, and sure enough, the noise isn't going through the headphones.  It is projecting through the media center, and has probably been doing so for five minutes without you getting it.  You hastily pause it and investigate the problem.  Someone has plugged these headphones into the wrong hole!
You watch the stupid video.  Finally.  You go to your next class.  You were even able to get on Facebook before!  Except then the teacher is giving you information about the class final, and you pull up your notes to make sure you remember the information, and you see a note you've forgotten about.  You have a grammar test.  To take online!  Due tomorrow!!  You make a mental note of it, but there's nothing you can do now.  You finish class.  You head to the building where your next class is held and plan on doing homework before it starts, because you have an hour-long wait.  You joyfully turn on your computer and hope that the connection will be better here.  And it is!
For about ten minutes.  Then it kicks you off again, and you want to bang your head on something in frustration, but the only thing to bang your head on is the brick wall behind you, and the laptop in front of you.  The brick wall will hurt too much and grab at your hair, and as frustrated as you are with the internet connection, you can't blame your poor computer for that.  So you sulkily settle with listening to depressing music until class starts. 
On the plus side, I did get my homework and the grammar test done, when it was due, I got home early thanks to the buses, and some friends gave me a ride home from the bus stop.  Thank you, my lovely friends!
By the way, for those who were wondering, the cloak is black velveteen with silver lining.
Hope your day was better than mine!

Fare thee well, friend!
