2 weeks of bad luck (October, height of rain season) ‘we’re on edge here’.
Got a cold. My laptop crashed. Everything gets disorganized with school because my
laptop crashed and I have to be at the library every day. I don’t talk to my
friends at home as much anymore for three weeks because of the laptop crashing
and I get homesick. I fall behind in work because the hours the library is open
is not compatible with my schedule. I am not able to run my stress off. My
advisor forgets that I am blocked to register for Spring classes and I am on
the waitlist for three classes (will I graduate now?). Professor this semester
gives me an unfair final grade because she doesn’t like me. Get ripped off by a
taxi. Brother-cousin gets into a serious car accident and my aunt has a tumor.
Lose my wallet in a taxi aka my credit card, my visa, my license, my school ID,
and 60 dollars. Lose my house keys AGAIN in a taxi on top of everything.
But hey, bad luck happens to everyone I guess right? It can only get better from here. ! Having this all happen to me in Costa Rica really proved to me that sometimes in America, i feel like people make stressful situations for themselves- freaking out over things that arent a big deal or a stressful situation. for example, if the dishes are dirty in the sink and my mom is freaking out, i sincerely think now that hey, thats NOT a stressful situation, RELAX! Or if I’m late to class or if i have to stay up all night for a final exam, i feel like after these past two weeks of literally so much going wrong, that kind of pressure isnt nearly at the same level as these past two weeks so even if it sounds really tough, im kinda greatful it happened because its a good 1. reality check to how good i have it 2. and a good life lesson.
