Sometimes, you've just gotta let it all out and just bitch about stuff. Riiiight? Right.
99.9% of the time I am one of those overly positive people that tries almost too hard to see the silver lining in every situation (which, I truly believe there is a silver lining) but last week just kicked my ass.
I blogged last week about my shitty week (very randomly I might add, and I realize that post was all over the place). I like blogs that are real and put the good and bad out there instead of pretending everything is rainbows and sunshine all the time, because, lets face it. It's not. We all have those moments where life kicks us where it hurts. I am however one of those people that think things can always be worse and despite my complaining, things really aren't that bad.
Anyway. Back to my bad week.
The week did not end any better. Friday afternoon right before heading out to happy hour with some girlfriends I dropped my phone face first onto the cement in front of my garage. At first I didn't think much of it (except for, "Oh shit"). A second later I picked it up and let out a loud gasp - the screen was COMPLETELY shattered. Pieces of glass were falling off of it and the screen was just splintered, like a broken mirror. Shockingly, I did not start immediately crying (which is what I normally would do). I was just pissed. Because, really world?? Really!?
The phone still worked normally (shocking, right?) and the only problem with it is texting is a little harder because of all the cracks. I ended up going to happy hour and just venting for the first, oh, I don't know... 15 minutes?! Pretty sure my friends were annoyed to be at that happy hour because I was not a happy camper. But, then again, I refer you back to this blog post's title. Sometimes. You've. Just. Gotta. Let. It. Out.
Luckily, I have had the iPhone for 18 months now so I am eligible for an upgrade. I am bummed though, because I wanted to wait for the iPhone 5 (I have a 4). I have insurance on my phone, so I figured I would pay the fee for the replacement and then just trade that one in for the 5 when it comes out. Then later that night I got on Verizon's website and went to fill out the claim for the replacement phone.
To get a replacement phone it would cost $169.
WTF? That is the price of the upgrade!
I pay $10/month for insurance and you're going to charge me the same amount of money as an upgrade?? That's absurd! So, instead of getting the replacement I went ahead and used my upgrade for the 4s. Hopefully the 5 isn't that cool, because I will not be getting it for at least 18 months, but I just don't care anymore. Just give me an iPhone that works and isn't shattered. The end.
The rest of my weekend was pretty event free. After happy hour I headed home, hung out with my sister and her bf for awhile (we're all doing much better, thankyou. Crisis/blowout averted), watched a movie and then slept a solid 8 hours. My sister and I woke up Saturday morning and headed out to the downtown farmer's market (our favorite weekend activity). Later that day I headed over to one of my best friend's house to watch the Iowa/Iowa State game (where ISU WON!!! Wooo hooo! Go state!). That night I was home early, but 9:30 and I settled in to read for awhile, but the next thing I knew, I woke up and it was 3 am, the book was on my chest and I'm still in my clothes... I must've been tired! Sunday I woke up after another solid night of sleep and got ready for my long run this week. I had a great 8 mile run, and I really hope I can keep this momentum up. I'm planning a post later this week of how training is going this time, so look for that if you're interested!
So, that's it for me! I'm out.
Hope you all had a good weekend, what did you do?
