in which I fail at adulting

I have a meeting at the school where I'm doing my internship today. I originally got the impression that it was some kind of fancy language school, but no, it's an actual school school, with all three stages (elementary, middle, high school) in the facilities. They listed "familiarizing yourself with the operations of a school" in the description of the internship program, but seeing as I'm going in as a translator, we'll see how that all works out.

Of course, I wouldn't be me if I didn't screw something up. We have a compulsory phys ed component this semester, so I signed up for something called "stretching body," which is something something slow-paced and done to music, and the classes are on Monday afternoons. When I talked to the woman from the school on Friday, I told her I had the afternoon free, but had to be done in time to get to my 5pm class. And then I called this morning, and confirmed the meeting, and then... then I looked at the schedule. And discovered my class doesn't start at 5pm, it actually ends at that time. But since I already confirmed the meeting, and internship/work is more important, I ended up writing to the instructor and telling her I had an emergency meeting at work and wouldn't be able to make it. Hopefully I can make up the class (I think you're allowed to have one absence anyway before they start docking marks), or go to one tomorrow, just to get the organizational bits out of the way. Either that, or she'll write back saying not to worry and I'll just go next week.

*sigh* Fucking adulting.

I still need to figure out what I'm going to wear today, and ugh ugh, I don't want to be a grown-up. :(
