Last week, I spent every spare moment studying for an exam that took place on Thursday. Once the clock struck 11:10am, I was officially on spring break, though in actuality, I still worked that afternoon, as well as on Friday and Saturday. Staying up until 2am with my head buried in a textbook proved to be exhausting, so a good portion of the weekend was dedicated to catching up on sleep, eating my favorite candies from the bulk section of Wegmans, and praying that I would win the lottery. Not a single one of my 21 tickets seemed to display the winning numbers, which is annoying considering there was a winner in Baltimore County. I’m not bitter.
When I finally had my fill of laziness and powered up my laptop in an attempt to respond to work-related emails, an error message appeared on my computer screen. I decided to forget and/or ignore it for the remainder of the weekend, hoping that the problem would fix itself. It didn’t. I learned that the hard way this morning when my laptop did something crazy and resulted in me having to rely on my iPhone all day at my internship.
Having my computer crash completely sucks (especially because I have no clue how to fix it), but not having to pay for six months of my gym membership slightly made up for it. I went to the gym this evening and as I was scanning my card, the man at the front desk called out my name to stop me. My credit card information hadn’t been updated since September, so I owed several months’ payment on top of a hefty late fee. I ended up not having to pay for any of it, since I didn’t know there was an issue with my billing in the first place. Pretty awesome!
Did you buy any lottery tickets on Friday?
Have you ever gotten something for free unexpectedly?
