12:03 am– Realized that I left my phone/alarm clock in my car (specifically in the cup holder)
12:05 am– I dug my eight year old alarm clock out of the closet, plugged it in, and set it to wake me up at 6:45 am.
6:45 am– Alarm clock alarms (with the volume of 1,000 whaling elk)
6:46 am– After 1 excruciating minute of the alarming, I rip the cord out of the wall.
6:47 am– I head back to bed to “just rest my eyes for 5 more minutes”
6:52 am– …
7:15 am– …
7:45 am– I start my second dream.
7:56 am (approx) I start my third dream (about Life Savers gummy candy, which are the best gummy candies made in the entire world…including the continent of Asia.)
8:15 am– My brother bursts into my room, which wakes me up in a fury.
8:16 am– I realize that I’m in deeeep trouble and begin to look for a hoodie to throw on and quickly leave the house.
8:17 am– I decide that there is no way that I can make my 30 minute commute to school take 13 minutes, so I went back into bed.
8:18 am– Change of plans! I’m going to try to make a run for it.
8:20 am– I brush my teeth at supersonic speed (thanks to my electric toothbrush), get an outfit to wear, and rush out the door.

Keep in mind that I have 10 minutes to get to school (which is 20 miles away), find a spot to park, and get to class

8:25 am– After driving nearly 180mph through residential roads, I get stuck behind a great-grandpa in his Buick.
8:30 am- Still stuck behind that grandpa. There’s no way that I can get to school on time, so I turn around and head back home. I couldn’t make it to school on time, my heart was beating fast and I was drenched with sweat, but for some reason I wasn’t mad.

Lesson: Leaving your phone in your cup-holder will raise your blood pressure and ruin your life.
