Is it just me that’s having the worst week ever? Did I finally get my punishment for not sharing that MySpace bulletin in the sixth grade? Or maybe it’s because Mercury is in retrograde? Truthfully, I don’t know what is going on around me, but I am having one of the most unlucky weeks.
A series of unfortunate events have already occurred in my life this week – my laptop charger caught fire, and when I say caught fire, I seriously mean that sparks were flying. I lost my debit card, which was then used by some random person to get gas. I got bit by a mosquito on my head twice in fifteen minutes, and my head swelled up like a balloon. Oh, and to top it off, I’m coughing up my lungs as I write this because I’ve caught the plague that’s currently circulating around campus.
I’m solely convinced the world is out to get me.
I’ve always been told my life could be an MTV show like Awkward because of all the things that happen to me that are just so tragic. I didn’t really agree with my friends about that until this week. I have probably said, “My life is in shambles,” approximately 10,000 times since the beginning of the week. Also, I’ve wallowed in self pity for about an hour each day, complaining to anyone who will listen. But I mean, what college student doesn’t do that?
At the end of this week, I’m hoping to shed light on what I should be thankful for. Maybe I’ll read some poetry and do some meditation to level out my horrific luck. Or maybe I’ll find a four leaf clover and then I’ll also win a million dollars. All of which are unlikely.
