So Saturday was a pretty great day, but today…not so much. I woke up to find that my email had been maliciously hacked and someone had sent tons of spam mail to all of my contacts repeatedly. I thought it was over, but it happened again tonight. Further steps have been taken on my part to prevent this from EVER HAPPENING AGAIN. I feel violated. After waking up and freaking out (because of course my mind jumps to worst case scenarios of my dearest friends and innocent old ladies opening an email from me to find some horrible porn ads or viruses or something…it wasn’t actually that bad, but it was close enough), I had to sign up for the dreaded GRE. For those of you who don’t know, the GRE is like the SAT for grad school. It’s a standardized test and it costs a lot of money to take. I HATE that I have to pay a ton of cash to do something I don’t even remotely want to do, but welcome to academia, I guess. Then I had to dish out some more cash to buy a random textbook that I need to complete my independent summer course (which I haven’t started working on and really need to). I thought I could get that book at my local seminary’s library, but all their copies are checked out for the next few months. After that, I received my work schedule for the next couple weeks. I’m supposed to do a Bible study with my mom and a few other ladies on Wednesday nights, but Great Harvest has decided to extend their hours for the summer, and guess who’s working evenings? So I need to get that sorted out soon, because my mama ain’t very happy that I’m skipping out on her Bible study, even if it is for my job.
All that to say, today was a bit stressful. However, it was made infinitely better by two events: getting to hang out with my friend Kim this evening, and getting a delightful call from my roommate that confirmed my intuitiveness in a wonderful way. 🙂
So, there’s an update for you. I hope your day was better than mine. And let us all remember that it could always be worse.
