Crazy day

I have just had the craziest day in a while. I was gonna fly out of town for a work event this afternoon. Then I thought I would have to extend my stay from four to five days because of the severe local weather.  I was upset about having to cancel my two classes on Sunday. Two hours before I was supposed to head to the airport, I was told to defer my departure to tomorrow. Then my Blackberry died on me and I had to borrow someone else’s phone to look up the number and send the email. After having barely met a deadline, I was told whatever we had spent the whole morning working on would not be used and I could cut my trip short from four to three days. I had to change my flights and accommodation and immediately rescheduled a class to tonight. Then my BB was fixed. As I thought the chaos was over, I was asked to draft another piece of writing. I thought I would be severely late for my rescheduled class, but somehow I made it on time!

Now I’m sitting in my bed, still completely amazed by the course of event of today, but I’ve learned something for sure:

No matter how well prepared you think you are, life can find a way to surprise you if it wants to. You will freak out and wonder why this is happening to you and think you’re losing your mind, but at the end of the day, everything is gonna be just fine. Worst case in scenario in every case: you die. So if you’re still alive and reading this, you’re fine.
