I was joking around with my rhetoric professor today about how I seriously need some sort of teleportation device to get me to and from school. That way I’d be able to stay longer, and my “travel time” wouldn’t take more than a second! Honestly, I’ve also been sort of even praying for the magical world to take pity on me and teach me how to apparate. So far, no owls, though…
Today, I literally left campus at 5.30 p.m. and got home just past 8 p.m. My mother decided to advise me on my commute route and recommend I take the 101-S to get home. Bad idea, you guys, at rush hour. BAD. IDEA. I drove at 15 mph the entire time from San Francisco, all the way back home. When I got out of the car, I had to massage my left leg, because I’d lost all sensation in my knee and foot.
En route, I got so tired of my music, because I feel like I’ve been listening to the same songs over and over again (I have been), so I decided to attempt to catch up with my friends. Not with very much success. Of course, they all had their busy schedules, but I was able to talk a bit with my best friends, Ameera, Maddie and Anusha (3 out of probably 7 calls). Ameera and I had a lovely chat about the lack of feminist themes in the 50 Shades of Grey trilogy – sophisticated, I know… Maddie and I talked a bit about Greek life, rushing and how swamped we are – not that we’re doing much about that situation. And Anusha and I were able to just b***h about traffic, driving, writing classes, weird professors, and college – real talk. Let’s just say these girls picked up the phone, when even my own mother was too busy to talk to me. Granted, my mom was helping my brother, but still…priorities.
So Minister of Magic, I am almost positive you are reading this. Just send me a pamphlet or some kind of instructional video. Don’t want you to use up your taxes on some random Muggle. But if you could please help a girl out, that would be so great. I’d be able to salvage a bit of my sanity, because at the moment, I’m pretty sure this commute is leaving me with a permanent migraine (a spell for that would be great, too.).
P.S. Anusha also gave me such an inspired idea! From now on, I will be taking pictures of the cabs I take, and adding them to my posts. 🙂 What can I say? I’m a sentimental person.
