Writing Prompt: Tell us about your first day at something — your first day of school, first day of work, first day living on your own, first day blogging, first day as a parent, whatever.
My first full day of school at UNLV was a hectic and scary one. I’m living in a new city all alone, I’m at a new school, which I only spent about 4 hours at prior and I was trying to get through graduate orientation and figure out where my classes were so I wouldn’t get loss (all of my classes started at 5:30) in the dark.
My roommate and I had rode together to campus and somewhere, some how I lost my cell phone, which seriously was like losing my life EVERYTHING was in there, I had no way to call my roommate to let her know what time we should meet to go home, so I walked in to the parking lot on the baking sun (it’s hot in Las Vegas!) left a note on her car telling her that I lost my cell phone and that I would be in front of the Student Union at 7pm. (The parking lots are not joke)
The whole day I was freaking out, I was without a cellphone; virtually cut off from everything I knew. Finally got home and called T-Mobile, told them that I lost my phone somewhere on campus, (naturally they couldn’t locate the phone, apparently it has been shut off or the battery was drained) and they temporarily shut the phone off, that night I called my mom (on my roommate’s cellphone and let her know what happened).
I hadn’t been in Las Vegas for a week and already I’d lost my cellphone, I was seriously ready to go to Milwaukee… the hard, cold, artic winters be damned. For some reason I called the bookstore (since it was the last place that had it) and know and behold they had my phone… THEY HAD IT! People reading this don’t understand how happy I was, it was like someone told me I won the lottery.. needless to say I reclaimed my phone, and I two years later I graduated with a Masters Degree, an the memory of my first day .
Until Next Time
