if you've ever attended a crowded event or maybe even lived in a populated area, you understand that lack of parking spaces is a disaster.
i live in a dorm of 9 floors with 48 girls on each floor plus 9 RAs. that makes exactly 441 people who live in my residence hall. i LOVE living in my hall - i have the best hall and the best floor on campus! - but the parking is absolutely atrocious. there's probably... 100 spots in the lot for our hall.
now i'm no mathemetician, but I'm pretty sure 100 spots DOES NOT CUT IT for a hall of 441 people. even if only half of them have cars!
22. I HATE SEARCHING FOR A PARKING SPACE AND NOT FINDING ONE!
tonight I went to Kroger with a couple other girls from my floor. i had the most legit parking space ever. it was RIGHT in front of my hall and i was so freaking stoked on it. it was like, 20 steps outside from the front door! how legit is that?! i hoped i wouldn't have to move my car until the weekend when everyone went home.
today i was talking to my best friend on the phone when two girls from my floor came out and asked if i wanted to go to kroger. sure! i said. then it dawned on me... I WOULD LOSE MY EXCELLENT PARKING SPACE!! finding an excellent parking space is seriously like winning the lottery. i feel so legit when i find a space. it's like winning a cross country race. this is funny because i can't run. anyway. i loved that space. but i was willing to sacrifice it for the good of the team...
we went to kroger and sure enough, upon our return, there were no spaces in the lot and we had to park across the street in a lot we fondly call "egypt" because it's freaking FAR AWAY FROM EVERYTHING.
okay. like, I'm from california. i should get a parking space with my name on it. like you came the farthest to come to WKU! so you get a legit parking space! you put 4000 miles on your car just trying to get here! i should get an award. or a pot of gold. or some sort of special incentive. but no, i get the same treatment as everyone else. which i suppose is fair...
oh parking. who knew it would give me such grief? i think my blood pressure raises like 30 degrees every time i have to find a parking spot. it's such a inward battle. and SMALL CARS! I HATE SMALL CARS THAT PULL INTO SPOTS AND YOU GET ALL EXCITED THINKING YOU'VE FOUND A SPOT! BUT IT'S JUST A STUPID VW BUG OR A LITTLE CAR! THATS NOT FAIR! CARS SHOULD BE REQUIRED TO BE A CERTAIN LENGTH TO PREVENT THAT FALSE HOPE! its not fair!! why should your dumb little VW bug get that spot?? i want my freaking camry in that spot. not your pretty boy car. nope.
i hate parking.
