Worst. Day. Ever.

I started back to school for the last time ever today. I work at the University's newspaper as the Advertising manager. I had to be at work a little early today since we've had no previous work days to prepare for tomorrow's paper. 

Within the fist 20 seconds of me being at work, I was in tears. I hadn't even got to the first drink of my coffee yet (coffee with french vanilla creamer at that!). The first thing I saw when I got to work was that my work computer had been swiped clean. My desktop, my folders, my work had been erased into oblivion. 

At this point, you may be saying, "well, Kylee, why wasn't your computer backed up in some way?". And to that I say...
No, Shit, Sherlock. Yes, I should've done that, but does that change the fact that I didn't?

Everyone saw me crying like a little girl. There were freaked out men (my boss/advisor and the other editors). I was training a new girl and she saw me sobbing like a baby. 

I just couldn't help it. I was emotional and someone stole my work life from under my nose. I felt like all of the crappy work I do for the little to no pay I receive was done in vien. I will never retrieve it. 

After I had come to terms with my loss, which I'm now referring to as "The Fire", I may have said the phrase that NO ONE SHOULD SAY WHEN HAVING A BAD DAY.  
"It couldn't get worse..."

Oh, how wrong I was.  lol...

(Part two, later the same day). 
I thought I was in the clear. I thought that the worst of my day was behind me. I'm stupid for thinking any of that. 
I went to the gym with my friends. After our pilates class, my friend, Lyssa, and I decided to do some more cardio and she needed some tennis shoes. I drove. 

About halfway to Academy, I started to notice my car acting funny. The steering and a sound I couldn't ignore. 
I had a flat tire. 

I wasn't going to let my self cry like a baby, but a couple of tears came out regardless. 

I'm so glad I was with my friend, we started to change the tire like two independent women. About when the work was done, a random mechanic helped us out. 

*Moral of the story is never assume the bad day will get better, especially after saying "it couldn't get any worse"

Oh no---that's so awful! I would have had a melt down. I hope tomorrow is a better day for sure!

UGH. What a terrible day. Sometimes you just need to let out a good cry! I don't want to jinx you, but I really hope tomorrow is a better day for you!

Ashley said...

I'm so sorry you had a bad day. I love you! I'll be praying for you about work, and I know God will take care of all of it!! You are so amazing, and I'm so blessed to have you in my life. Get some sleep and wake up tomorrow with Jesus in your heart. (That is probably the cheeziest thing I've ever said/written to you, and that is why I didn't delete it. I almost did, but then I thought, what could it hurt. And now I'm babbling on like a...well, an Allsbury, and I hope this comment makes you smile.) LOVE YOU!!

I love the "It's my biannual cry" picture. I feel like I melt down, yep twice a year. Almost like clockwork. But it's cathartic and usually makes me feel better. I hope your cry made you feel better and that things have improved since!
