ok, I can't believe I am tattling on myself but.......
this morning I woke up late and I had a headache and the only thing my eyes wanted to was close. for quite some time I debated whether or not I should go to my earliest class. (since I haven't missed and since it's one that would be ok if I missed because I wouldn't get behind....oh alright, I'll tell you--it was my religion class) while doing my hair and checking the clock every minute or so I realized that I wasn't going to make it on time.
so, by this time I was wide awake standing in my bathroom faced with the moral dilemma: run out the door half-ready, or to finish getting ready and prepare for my next class some more since there is a large test coming at me on Friday (oh crap, that's tomorrow!). the clock ticked. my head hurt. my mind weighed out the pros and cons. there was just so much to do today. so much to prepare for. I really needed an extra hour. I made up my mind.
I know it was a silly decision. I know that I should have gone. but I stayed. I finished my hair and did my make up. as I was finishing my mascara I managed to jab the brush in my right eye. ow. because of the little jab my eye was watering and all of my lashes stuck together. after the watering went down I got my sharp bobby pin (you know when the little protective heads come off and they're sharp) and started to separate the clumped eyelashes. it was then I poked my eye out. seriously. I poked a hole in my eye with my bobby pin. water gushed. my eye throbbed. all of my mascara smeared down my cheeks. (this was a MAJOR poke I'm telling you! I stabbed it!) and now, 53 minutes later my eye is still throbbing and running with water down my cheeks (so excuse the typos please, if there are any), my once minor headache has been amplified by my eye, my mascara is gone (actually it's not gone, it's all down my right cheek. I look great), and I haven't been able to do anything I thought I would!
so, I'm really not telling you this to whine, get self pity, or to clear my conscience about skipping out on my religion class (and don't try to tell my you've never done such things!). there was a lesson learned here. a moral if you will: If you try to skip out on your religion you're going to get your eye poked out and all the time you were planning to save to get so much more done is wasted because you can't even open your eyes! (and don't use sharp bobby pins to separate your eye lashes)
pretty deep, I know.
do you have any stories of such lessons being taught to you??
over an hour later.
it's still running like crazy.
I might have done some damage.
(sorry about the scary pic.
I just had to prove my point.)
