its a good thing.

Its a good thing that I don’t really get embarrassed because otherwise I might not ever leave my house, I just always seem to find myself in situations that could (should) probably embarrass me. Take yesterday for instance, I was walking on campus in between classes and was sooo excited because while I was in class it had started snowing (eeee!).

So this was about 10:30 in the morning and I was having a good self-esteem day, I showered in the morning, and didn’t just throw on the first thing I found.  I am walking from one side of campus where my class was, to the other side of campus where I had some work to do when I approach possibly one of the busiest intersections on campus. A car just went through the stop sign the other one was pulling up to the stop sign so there was time for me to go. I look around to make sure nothing was coming through, casually notice the throngs of people walking around in between classes and step onto the crosswalk.

To my surprise I find myself slipping. My arms go out to try to balance myself and my feet are slipping trying to find a grip on the ground to steady myself. Finally I find what I think is a gripping point on the ground only to put my other foot down and slip again. By this point I am so off balance that there is no hope for me. I try to save myself, but to no avail and before I know it my feet are straight out in front of me, my arms are still in the air from trying to balance myself and I am falling towards the ground. The rest is a bit of a blur, but I remember on the ground thinking how I hate when people fall and then immediately look around to see who saw so when I got up I did not look around. I just held my head high, and carried on my merry way.  I bet I looked something like the guy with the umbrella at the end of this video, but with much more struggling to regain my balance.

This would happen to me because one of my greatest joys in winter is watching people slip on ice. I never wish anyone to get hurt, and I hope they don’t get embarrassed but I just love when people slip, it kills me. So I’m glad I could be that source of  joy and laughter to the masses in between class at UWO yesterday. ha.

Anyways, that is my story, I could have been embarrassed but I wasn’t. Instead I just laughed to myself at the irony that I would find myself on the cold ground. When I told my friend Siobhan she laughed and said she wished my books went flying everywhere. Yeah, I have kind friends. lol

I hope you are all getting into the Christmas spirit or the finals spirit if you are a student lol. I am definitely getting into the Christmas spirit, but having a bit more difficulty with the finals spirit. lol

If you havent, you should check out my Holiday playlist here.


ps. i love youimage Guilty pleasure alert. I have been watching the Hills on demand lately, starting from season1. True to MTV fashion, it has just the right amount of trash to get me through my day, while still being endearing. I am invested in the lives of these girls and I find myself wanting to know what is going to happen next with LC, Whit, Audrina and Heidi. Oh yes, quality television viewing. lol
