First off, I have about a million different things due. Papers, readings, all kinds of those fun college things that you have to take care of. But honestly, that was not even scratching the surface of everything going on in my life.
Tuesday was Halloween! And boy, was it one of the scariest Halloweens of my entire life. Not because of any spoopy costume, or haunted house, or the new episodes of Stranger Things that I still haven’t been able to watch, no. It was the scariest thing a college senior can experience, the encroaching reality of REAL LIFE. (Insert dun-dun-duuuuuuuuun sound effect here perhaps paired with Mad Scientist cackling? Make it intense, this is scury stuff.)
Long story short I walked downstairs Tuesday morning, bright-eyed and bushy tailed (here meaning sleep-deprived, grumpy, and overworked) only for the carpet to start squishing. The bottom floor of our apartment had flooded. Fun.
Then that evening there was a rainbow positioned perfectly over our apartment.
It was weird man. Thankfully, though, nothing was damaged. It has just been annoying trying to write a 16-18 page paper on the Women of The Lord of the Rings with drying fans and a dehumidifier going in the living room at all times. Also, we haven’t really been able to use the kitchen because all of our furniture is in there.
Anyway, back to my paper
