First, I decided I didn't need to look up the address to program into my GPS because it was probably already in there as a "recent location." ----> that being my first mistake.
The address I set it to was the DMV!!!!!!
But, no bother, I figured I'd navigate by feel to get there. After driving for 10 minutes and not seeing anything I recognized I realized I was going the wrong way...
Long story short, I went at least 1/2 an hour out of my way.
Finally found the campus and parked my car in the first available spot.
I made my way to the college bookstore to pick up my cap and gown and my "frugalness" won over and I decided to just purchase the tassel and use my husbands gown from about 12 years ago since it was also black. I figured with my heels the length would fall to mid-calf which it did. Compared to my classmates, I will have more of a "loose fitting" gown but WTH, it saved me $23.
Would you believe the tassel cost $7.50 - for a TASSEL????
Well then, I proceeded back to the parking lot, only to not see my car - ANYWHERE. I wandered around in the rain for about 10 minutes - to another lot. Still no car.
At that point I gave up and headed on foot to my next destination, the off-campus security office to get my ID made. Luckily the woman in the bookstore gave me a map.
I got my ID badge made only to realize somewhere along the way the tassel had slipped out of my bag. O.M.G. it was turning out to be a positively crappy day.
I managed to retrace my steps, which was no small feat considering my sense of direction, and found it on a soggy sidewalk around the corner.
Finals are next week so I'll be incommunicado. Have a wonderful weekend!!!
