...But as far as I can tell, it didn't go off.
I discovered this when I woke up at 12:15 or so.
Every step of the way, when I 'woke up', I trusted in my alarm to wake me up. I figured I was waking up prematurely, and that I needed to get back to sleep. Every step of the way, I ignored the warning signs that something had gone wrong. Until I didn't. I just felt something was off. So when I woke up, the first thing I noticed: daylight.
Lots of it.
Then the time.
Confusion, disorientation, panic, and then anger, followed by more of each in particular the chaotic disarray where panic reigned supreme as I rushed out the door to be basically five hours late for work. The anger comes in a bit at me not paying attention to the warning signs that something went wrong (I mean, I can't really be mad about the circumstance given that there's no way to prevent your alarm from not going off), but also at my family.
I sent texts to my mom days ago telling her my schedule. She didn't wake me up or even notice I hadn't left.
I told my sister my schedule. She didn't notice I was still at home.
I told my dad what I was doing. He can maybe be excused depending on when he left, but I should have gotten up before he left most likely, albeit only just.
None of them said anything.
No coffee, no breakfast. I had to go to work with nothing. It was a rush every step of the way.
Once there, things went pretty smoothly. I did the remainder of my first shift, then had the senior potluck. This was intended as my lunch, but ended up as my breakfast. Staff are allowed to eat, but even if most staff weren't, I'm probably classified as an honorary senior given the way seniors interact with me and the way I identify with them (in particular, their taste in music, which has gotten me the reputation of "that lifeguard who dances").
I did end up feeling a little sick to my stomach later, but that's probably from eating too much of these strange unfamiliar foods in a short duration of time while my body was fasting. They passed in less than an hour, so I was fine. It was a pretty standard day, really. Tonight was family night, where I was the last one home. We watched Spider Man Homecoming. Desert was pumpkin pie. Pretty standard evening, with all six of us.
I mighta had more to say, but I can't really think of anything if so, so I suppose this is it for now.
