Wednesday, September 25: Write about a time you screwed up - a mistake you made.
One fall semester, I had a technical writing course. It was sooooo easy that I seriously did not lift a finger that whole class. I knew that as long as I showed up for the final exam and basically wrote my name I would get an A.
Robert Earl Keen was playing at "Roadhouse Rubys" (I think?) If you went to a Texas university and had any friends in any sort of fraternity or sorority, you loved Robert Earl Keen. And Pat Green, Cory Morrow, Jack Ingram, Cross-Canadian Ragweed, the Great Divide, etc. To this day, if I am in a bad mood, I will put some Pat Green on and sing along to the top of my lungs. Anyway - I went to the REK concert and had waaaaay too much fun. I was over-served. ;)
I'm sure I set my alarm, but I did NOT wake up in time for my final exam. I may have been doing well in the class, but a zero would have fixed that....
Moral of the story - don't be a fool and go out partying the night before finals. But if you do, make sure you have some friends in the class.
