Just One of Those Days

Today has just been one of those days… more about that later, let’s do the outfit first.  I styled up this outfit in accordance with the challenge on Diya’s blog- the item was boyfriend blazer.  Also making their first appearance here, please welcome my new boots!

blazer- american eagle, tee- forever 21, skirt (thfrited)
and tights- Savers, boots- Wanted
they’re so comfortable, you don’t even know!

Now onto my day: WARNING- stop reading here if you don’t want to hear my complaints about a crappy day.  I couldn’t sleep last night, which means it was impossible for me to wake up in time for my earliest class, so I missed it.  I went to my next two classes, which were fine, then came back to take outfit pictures for today.  So far it was a fine day, not great, but fine.  Then, I remember I have to call this company and yell at them for not shipping my order.  Remember how I said I was getting a new camery toy?  Well I ordered a tripod off Amazon, thanks to Ashley‘s recommendation and it was supposed to arrive last week.  I received a shipping confirmation email and everything, so when it hadn’t arrived by Monday, I decided to call the company and find out what was going on.  It turns out that not only had my item not shipped (and they’d billed me already and everything?!), but the tripod was out of stock and wouldn’t be in stock until the end of February.  So after spending nearly an hour on the phone with them trying to figure out my best options, since they’d pretty much shafted me, I finally get them to give me a refund and order a different, but similar tripod from Amazon directly.  Hopefully I have no more problems on that front.

Meanwhile, as I’m fighting with the customer service representative on the phone, I’m trying to check my email on my computer because I think it is strange that I haven’t received a single email all day.  It turns out that my school identity number/password or my computer was compromised and is jeopardizing my school’s network.  This means that my account is completely locked and I’m freaking out because I don’t know what the implications of this situation are.  I’m wondering, “How was it compromised?  How am I going to access my email?  What if my machine was compromised, do I have to get a new computer?”  I call the Technical Services help desk and thankfully, after some manuevering they are able to help me unlock my account.  Unfortunately, the guy says he doesn’t really know the root of the problem, meaning that my account may lock up again, and tells me that I need to take my computer to the student techs.  So, now I have to back up all my files and then run some scans and hope that everything resolves itself.  Of course, due to all the frustration and the stress, I had a massive headache all evening…

So, that’s the sitch.  If you’ve read all the way to this point, thank you for listening to me ramble and I’ll promise to be in a more positive mood next post- I’m already feeling better as I type this out :)
