My mood was fine today. I just felt great. But every situation I was in today ended up not so great.
My day started out with accidentally hitting the “Dismiss” button on my alarm rather than “Snooze.” I ended up sleeping in for three and a half extra hours. It didn’t matter too much, but there were things that I had wanted to get an early start on. So after I left the house I went to get the screen protector put on my phone at Future Shop, and I also bought a bright pink phone case for it. But when I was given my phone back it was a bit wet, and I took off the battery cover AND THE INSIDE OF IT WAS WET AS WELL. I freaked out a little bit, but then calmed myself down by telling myself that it wasn’t enough liquid to cause any damage (I hope.) Since I was at the mall, I also picked up a couple of little beauty essentials. But I won’t get into that.
After I was finished at the mall, I headed to class. Extremely anxious to get out of the rain. As I was walking through the school parking lot, a mighty gust of wind decided to blow its way along and tried to take my umbrella with it. Thankfully my umbrella is one tough customer and didn’t break. While I was in class my teacher told everyone to hand in a big assignment that I thought was due during our next class. Great. I’m not even close to finished. But more than half of the class didn’t even show up today, so I guess I’ll just stick it in the pile of work that gets handed in by them.
I left school early. I just wasn’t feeling right.
When I got home I turned the WJC semi-final game on. Canada was playing their most hated rival, Russia. We were down 5-1 when I tuned it. That was super heartbreaking to see. And as much as I want to say that I didn’t lose faith, I actually did. That was until the score was 6-3, then I was drawn back into the game. Three goals in half a period isn’t that far of a reach when the team that’s defensively on their toes is getting pretty nervous. Despite an amazing hard-fought third period, the boys fell short. That was tough to watch. Two years in a row. Here’s the goal summary for the third period:
I’m pretty sure every Canadian who watched the game is very proud of the way the boys fought in the third. But I guess there’s always next year.
