Well, here we are once again! Here I find myself once again bringing you another lessons from my life in all things related to being a Diva. I think one of the main tenants of being a Diva is knowing how to use Karma. Karma is so important as a Diva because it keeps good things comin’ to us, and bad things flowin’ towards other people (aka: the haters!) Not that I wish ill on other people, but sometimes, Karma has that roundabout way of working, you know? It’s not me, it’s the universe! That’s all there is to it. I don’t dish it, I just teach it! So here we go, strap yourself in for another exquisite Diva Lesson, and be prepared for a test on it later. Without further adieu, I give you Diva Lesson #20: “Snow Days Can Be Good Karma!”
As I’m sure many of you know, this winter season has been very abnormal. For so many of the days this winter, we’ve had unseasonable warm days, or just in general a lack of snow! I think this has made my excessive wearing of shorts more acceptable to some people. Little did they know that even if it was snowing everyday, I would still be wearing shorts! Hey, what can I say? You’ve always gotta show some skin, right? But that’s for another lesson. Anyway, in the forecast this week, there was something very unusual for the season that we’ve been having. It was a winter weather advisory! Apparently, it was going to snow a lot, and then turn into more of an icy mix which would further complicate the roads and driving situation, making it unsafe to travel. Initially, I thought that the snow was going to come on Thursday, which wouldn’t have too much of an effect on me, because I only have one class.
However, as the fates would have it, the weather came on Wednesday, early in the day. It just so happens that Wednesday is my busiest day for classes too! so, I went to my 8am class, which ended about a half hour early, and during that class, my professor informed us that her afternoon class, which I am also enrolled in, would be cancelled because of the expected bad weather. So, after I got out of class, I headed to Starbs for some coffee and a casual scone, and then when I returned to campus, which by now was being encompassed by crazy amounts of snow and wind, I got an e-mail from my afternoon professor which informed me that my 4:30 class would also be cancelled that day. I was so elated to find out that my two classes for the afternoon of my longest day would be cancelled! What were the chances that of all of the days for it to snow in this crazy winter season, it would fall on my only truly busy day for classes? I hit it big, this week.
However, I did not fully slack off that day. Instead, I tried to take advantage of the day and got some homework done so that I would be in better shape for the rest of the week. this would help me to alleviate some stress, and keep things under control. After getting some of that much needed work done, I spent the afternoon simply laying around and enjoying the snow day. I hung out with Jordan and Soraya during the day, and then later in the night my friend Steve and I went off campus to get some pizza, and then of course, we watched RuPaul’s Drag Race. Following that, I had a Hall Government meeting, and then I spent the rest of the night just relaxing and hanging out.
The next day, a Thursday, I didn’t have class until 3:05. When I went to class finally, I was expecting for it to be a normal, full class. However, at the beginning of the class, my professor informed us that the weird weather had complicated his own schedule, and he would have to pick up his daughter early from preschool that day, which meant we would have to end class 20 minutes early! Once again, it was another wonderful surprise which added to a truly great week. What luck I was having.
In total, I only had to go to 3 full classes this week, which was highly unusual. Overall, I think the biggest break of the week would have to be from the snow day, which cancelled my busiest day of the week. I think this is a lesson for us all! Who knows what I did, but clearly, I must be doing something right, because I think this was an example of some great good Karma coming my way! Karma always acts in mysterious ways, and you always have no idea when it’ll come back to repay you, in a positive or negative way. So, you should always try and ensure that you have good Karma comin’ your way, because sometimes, it’ll come back in a big way, and give you a serious break, like it did for me this week! That’s why I think this is an essential lesson that I’m bringing to you this week, in Diva Lesson #20: “Snow Days Can Be Good Karma.” That’s all for now, so till next time, keep your good Karma comin’!
