I was having a good day for about fifteen minutes. I went out to my car, I found a little stuffed pink monkey and a card on my seat, gift of my sister. All was well. And then I started the car and not only did the battery light go on (old news), the ABS light went on (very new). A call to the Toyota dealership revealed that probably, my alternator needs to be replaced. So, there was ten minutes of cursing at my car and then another five minutes of making it swear that it wasn’t going to short out the radio in the process.
Then, I had an Italian Quiz. Wow, it’s like I wasn’t even in class for most of the stuff covered. No idea what happened, but apparently, I’ve got to change my study habits so that they include the actual stuff that’s going to be on the quiz. Craptastic.
Now I have a slew of homework. Just for fun, I’m going to TRY and make a To-Do list. I’m going to make it here, so it doesn’t get lost, and then I’ll see if there’s any kind of positive feeling when I scratch stuff off.
