Worst Case Scenario

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Worst Case Scenario.”

In light of me starting my third year of university tomorrow, I have thought about the Worst Case Scenarios that could happen. I have chosen to imagine such scenarios a day from now rather than today like the prompt suggests. What can I say? I have always been a bit of a dare devil.

If some of my fears came true tomorrow, it would be because I:

  • Forgot to set my alarm clock and consequently, walked into a lecture theater late. Of course, only the seats closest to the isles are taken, so I would only draw more attention to myself asking people to shuffle along the row. I dislike the feeling of running late and disruption, in particular being the cause of disruption. On second thought, I might just set two alarms tonight, just in case.
  • Was singled out by a lecturer in class. One of my favourite lecturers calls out students who are texting/reading/doing anything else but listen to him speak. I respect him for doing so, as he puts in time and effort into his lecturers, so the least students should do is pay attention for 50 minutes. However, in the rare occasion that I break this rule (most likely for being mistaken by the lecturer for texting when really playing Candy Crush), I would slump so far into my seat in a futile attempt to become invisible.

On a more positive note, the best case scenario I am hoping for looks like a day older version of myself happy with her choice in classes, which greatly interest her and her schedule, which gives her two days off every week.

In response to The Daily Post’s writing prompt: “Object Lesson.”

What an individual wears can reveal much about their personality. For instance, in many ways, my character is embodied by the pair of jeans I wear. They reveal that:

1. I value comfort over style any day. I feel more confident wearing my blue ripped jeans than a skirt or dress (or a skort). I will most definitely never wear a skort! I believe that if you don’t feel confident in your outfit before you leave your house, you certainly won’t feel confident in what you are wearing when you leave it.

2. I do not like change. Jeans have been my go-to preferred style of pants for as long as I can remember. I rarely change up my fashion choices, so wearing a dress to my Year 12 ball pushed me out of my comfort zone. I needed a full two months to prepare myself in anticipation of that night, not in anticipation of the costs involved or the bad photos I will be tagged in but for simply wearing a dress.

I may make an exception for my wedding day. Although, thinking about it, I could channel Britney Spears at the 2001 American Music Awards and sport a denim wedding dress.

3. Convenience. Jeans conveniently match well with many items of clothing including t-shirts, shirt shirts, sweat shirts, jackets and jumpers. Jeans are a blessing in disguise.

So, to answer the question regarding what item my friends would associate me with, my response would be jeans.
