I had a mini-meltdown yesterday. It wasn't food related, so that's good! Like I said before, I take sign language interpreting classes twice a week. Now, let me draw you a map. My house is southwest of the city where I work. I take classes far northwest of the city. So on these two days (Tues. and Thurs.) I drive downtown in the morning to work, and after work, I drive northwest to school. Got the mental picture?

They are doing construction (because it's construction season, right?) on one of the expressways. I take a different one to school but they sort of run parallel and so my expressway has been much busier too. Yesterday, it was unbearable. So I tried to take streets a little bit just to get further ahead before going on the expressway. BIG MISTAKE! The traffic was horrible, I got all turned around because the streets weren't straight. After almost 1 hour, I had virtually gone nowhere! At this rate, I would make it to class maybe by Monday!

I called a friend in class and left a message saying I was going home, but because of all the frustration, I started to cry! Good lord! I think it's time for the semester to end! And I sent a message to my teacher's pager.

Want to know the best part? She said she wasn't going to be there and there was a sub! What? All that for nothing! A wasted hour of my life, crying, gas, parking money, for what?

Another thing though, my friend said they got to leave at 8:00 (instead of 9:15). So if I would have got there late, maybe around 7:15 and left at 8:00, I would have been furious! Maybe it worked out for the better.

The next best part? I went for a run with my cousin's husband to relieve stress. I wouldn't have normally been able to exercise on school days, so I was excited about that.

Now on to the food! It's been boring lately. I'm sorry about that. I'll try to spice it up next week!
