Not the best day

So today was honestly not the best day. It started off with me getting about 4-5 hours of sleep last night because I went home this past weekend and didn't do any homework at all. I had to watch a movie for Spanish and do a critique on it, and honestly, I did not start till a little past midnight and didn't end up going to bed till a little past two. I had to wake up at 6:45 to go to work on north campus, which is on the total opposite side of where I live when I have work at 8AM. Work was fine, did homework and all, but I was kinda dead to the world in math and Spanish. After Spanish, I had to try to get down to the opposite side of campus on south, because I had a volunteer interview at Big Brothers, Big Sisters at 1, but I could not get a bus down there because a total of 4 or so buses passed us because they were so full or everyone got on it first.

I finally got down to south and walked up the huge hill to Big Brothers, Big Sisters, and I was actually only ten minutes late (I had called a little bit after I got out of class to say that I might be a little late). The interview lady was really nice, but the interview went really in-depth about everything with the past 21 years of my life, and I mean really in-depth. I have never been asked half or so of the questions she asked me, but they were relevant to them finding me a "Little". I told her all the answers and went kinda in-depth on some of them, but there was one in particular that struck me. She had asked about personal (dating) relationships, and I kind of laughed when she asked about that. For those of you who know the story, it's not something you'd really summarize in a couple sentences, it's honestly more of a Nicholas Sparks novel or something. Well, I tried to sum it up as much as possible, but she kept giving me confused looks and wondering what I meant by the things I was saying, so I had to go MORE in-depth than I would have preferred to. And to make it worse, for some reason (maybe because I hadn't totally showed much emotion about the whole thing as of recent), I started crying a little bit. A dam in me broke, and I felt like a complete idiot because it was an interview and all, but she was really nice about it all.

After the interview that lasted (I'm not even kidding) close to two hours, I headed back down the huge hill while it snowed and I finally got home around 3-something. Well, when I got home, I realized that I dropped my hat when I was putting my hood on to go out into the snow and it was all the way by Big Brothers, Big Sisters. So, I walked all the way back up the hill to go back to it, and I had to walk all the way down back home, and by the time I got back home for good, it was around 3:30 and I had only eaten a slice of pumpkin bread that morning in Spanish. I ate a really late lunch and took a few hour nap. Honestly, one of the most exhausting overall days. Hopefully tomorrow's better.
