I’ve become one of “them”
I woke up early this morning but still managed to be 15 minutes late for class. This has become a serious problem for me this semester. My entire life I’ve been the first student in the room ready and waiting for class to begin. Honestly, I was actually quite anal retentive about it and found it annoying when students would straggle in late. I would always think, “is it really that hard to get to class on time?” Well I’ve learned this semester that it apparently can be. Two days a week I’m rushing to class from work and the parking lot by that time if completely full so I’m forced to drive across Jefferson and park in the 1L lot which takes more time than I had to get to class to start. Today wasn’t even one of those days and I still managed to be late. Traffic was horrendous. After years and years of being annoyed by those people running into class late, I’ve become one of them. Don’t worry; I refuse to stay with “them.” I will conquer this most recent habit and return to my anal retentive self if it kills me.
I expect to get home earlier than usual today which I’m super excited about, but first I still have another class and two meetings. Hopefully, the rest of the day goes smoothly!
