My art teaching class was supposed to meet in another building today for a presentation by a special presenter. I knew what building it was in but wasn't sure which room. I went to the original classroom first before remembering the special presentation we had to go to, when I got to the building I had 15 mins till class so I loitered in the hall hoping to see a classmate or the teacher to help me find where to go. I even texted a classmate to ask which room it was. Receiving no reply and seeing no classmates I thought it might be good to go back to the regular room to check and see if a sign or note was there with the correct info. I went there and no such luck. I asked a staff member in the room next door, and they had no idea except to check the class website. I had the correct building after all and had somehow missed seeing all my classmates. In the end I made it to the right room but I was 10 or more mins late to class.
I literally lived through one of my stress nightmares. it was pretty awful. Other events earlier in the morning culminated with the ordeal to make me a ball of infuriation. I was pretty livid with the whole situation by the time I made it to class because I was hot and sweaty from running back and forth between buildings, angry at the situation from the morning, and worried about losing points for being late to the class .... and on and on.
Basically, I just hope that because I had my really bad day early in the semester that I have fulfilled my quota and that the rest of the semester will go more smoothly.
