Not My Week

*spoiler: I complain a lot in this post*

It's been one of those weeks. I'm talking about where nothing goes right and when you think you've finally gotten one step ahead, you quickly fall two steps behind. Here's a glimpse at my week:

not my week

My school is currently being remodeled, therefore parking is limited. For the past year, students would park on a side road next to the school. But, the police department decided that after two years of students parking there, this past Monday would be the day they finally come down and give us all parking tickets. My first ticket wasn't even something cool. There's nothing cool about a parking ticket.

After our parking was taken away, we all decided on a different, more remote side street to park on. Guess who paid us another visit? You got it- the police. I walked out to my car after school on Tuesday to find another wonderful little piece of paper on my windshield.

Yearbook is a really big deal at my school so we have a class for it. One of the other staff members and myself were assigned a spread (two full pages) last Friday that had to be turned in with a HUGE up and coming deadline. On Wednesday, we thought we were finally finished, only to find that we couldn't use half of our content because we couldn't get pictures to match the stories we had wrote. It was frustrating, to say the least.

After not being able to park on side streets anymore, the school finally found us parking spots in a shopping center about a 5 minute walk from the school. However, all day long on Thursday, rumors were going around about cars in the lot being towed. (Evidently, some students had parked in an employee parking lot causing that business to get mad.) But, after school, I was so relieved when I saw my car where I had parked it.

What could go wrong on a Friday? Apparently, a lot. After a stressful school day, my two friends and I headed over to the mall for some dinner at the Cheesecake Factory along with some shopping (of course). Once I got to my car to go home, I found that the light had been left on and therefore my car wouldn't start. We flagged down mall security and started my car with jumper cables. Yay.

Here's to hoping next week is better.
