In Which Amber Continues to be a Complete Mess.
I’m not a morning person. I never have been. I expect I never will be. So, having to be at work at 8am this morning was a challenge, in more ways than one. My alarm went off at 6am, but I wasn’t ready to get up then, so I slept until 6:30. I got up, made myself presentable, threw on my new purple dress, a purple sweater, and some matching accessories. I looked like a really awesome, fabulously stylish, responsible adult person!
I checked the directions to the closest metro station before I left, but I quickly realized I should have written the directions down. I got a little turned around, so what did I do? I called Daddy and had him GoogleMap the way from the street corner I was on to the metro station. He safely navigated me to the station, and I used my little card to get in and boarded to correct train, woot woot! I also got off on the right stop…but I left from the wrong exit. The building I was looking for is right across from one exit, but I left from another, resulting in me having NO IDEA where I was or how to get to the place I needed to be.
So, I wound up wandering the area around the station, looking for the building where MY OFFICE is located. I was spectacularly lost for a good 20 minutes, which resulted in me being 20 minutes late on my first day! Not really a responsible adult person thing to do but I still looked awesome and fabulously stylish, so whatever. I would have called Paula (or Daddy!) and asked for directions, but my phone was dead, lucky me. So I struggled through and made it there eventually.
