Cupcakes and Sunshine: One Doozy of a Day

One Doozy of a Day

Today was most certainly a doozy of a day. So much of a doozy, I don't even have pictures of delicious baked goods or sweet treats to show you. I know, I know. I can't believe it either.

 I woke up at the crack of 5:30 AM (it wasn't quite yet dawn) and drove back to UGA from Spartanburg, SC where I was visiting my aunt, uncle, and cousins this past weekend. I arrived right on time for my Italian composition and then attended the rest of my classes like I usually do on Mondays: Political Science, Advertising, and then my New Media Class. Today, my New Media project group and I recorded parts of our video project after our class was over. It is so, so exciting. But still remains top secret! Because we are competing against other members of our class, I can't tell you any of the details of the project just yet. I'll be sure to let you guys know about it as soon as I can. :) 

After shooting the project, I headed straight to work at the Fresh Market from classes. I worked until a little after 8, and then zipped right back to school for an ADPR Connection meeting. ADPR Connection is a huge networking event that UGA's PRSSA team puts on every year. I am so excited and thankful to be a part of the decorations committee! It has been so much fun thinking about ideas and seeing what businesses in the community want to participate in our event. I feel I have learned so much already and the event has not even started.

After the ADPR Connection committee meeting ended, I walked back to the parking deck to find...my tire was flat. My brand new tire! I had just purchased this tire last week when the previous tire was found to be a pancake...which is a funny story as well.

Last week, I pulled into Walmart to get my oil checked, and as soon as my car approached the workers, I noticed they were staring and staring at my car. I got out of the car and said, "Hello! I would like to get my oil changed!" And they responded with, "And...a new tire." 
WHAT? A new tire? I had not the slightest clue what they were talking about. I walked to the side of my car to see what they meant. And there it was...a pancake tire. How does that happen? I pull into the autoshop to get my oil changed and my tire is pancake flat! I was at the right place at the right time. That's for sure. 

But now, that brand new tire is flat yet again. It looks like I'm going to be heading to the dealership bright and early tomorrow morning to see if they can fix it before I have to head to classes. I'm crossing my fingers. It was a doozy of a day indeed.
