Interlocking thoughts

I took my first test for Accounting today.  Well, the first half of my first test, we did multiple choice today and will do problems on Thursday.  I think I did okay, and am grateful I checked my work because there was at least one answer I had right on the test where I had filled in the wrong bubble on the scantron thingy.

Speaking of the scantron thingys - I had to buy my own at the bookstore for the test.  It was five for $1.70 or something, but really?  The college can't supply scantron sheets?  On the flip side of that - at least half a dozen students came to the room without one.  It had been on the syllabus and was mentioned again in an email the professor sent out last week that everyone needed to have them.  Each time some other student in the room handed a spare over.  I suppose I should be impressed by the kindness, but I wanted to say 'the bookstore is that way a single sheet is less than 50 cents and it shouldn't take you more than 15 minutes to get there and back'.  Do I think it's stupid that we have to bring our own?  Yes.  Do I think you're a little stupid if you can't follow basic directions?  Also yes.

Studying for the test yesterday afternoon I reached a point where I really wanted to take a nap, but hadn't finished the practice tests yet.  I finished the practice tests, but it's a little hard to feel like a grown up when your life choices are study for test or nap.
While napping is always a valid life choice, I currently have medical reasons for needing them.  I have been off my thyroid medication since August 28 prepping for my one year follow-up scan.  As of Friday's bloodwork my TSH was 24.  The good about this is the faster I get out of balance the sooner I can do the scan (we're aiming for TWH>=40) and then start taking my meds again.  The bad about this was proven at 9p last night when I was entirely out of gas.  Apparently I am past the point where napping is an option, especially given that I have to be alert at work in the evenings.  Now I am all for naps, but given commute traffic my usual plan is to leave the apartment by 4p and then kill time at the other end until I can get into the theatre.  Since public napping is frowned on, I may have to get creative.
Following on that is the idea that I might be back on my meds way sooner than expected (maybe even by this weekend).  That, combined with the fact that my show didn't extend, means I might be free to go to my cousin's wedding which I previously thought there was no way I could do.  Except, I've already RSVP'd for the event no.  There's no guarantee this will work out, but given my previous RSVP should I even start looking?  A poll:

Poll #1618805 RSVP etiquette

Is it okay to change your response after you've already RSVP'd to an event?

Yes - always.
Yes if it's family
Yes if it's still more than X amount of time until event (X defined in comments)
Yes as long as it's just you - no guests
No - always
No with a caveat explained in comments
You actually respond to RSVPs?
Ticky RSVP!

Having just finished laundry I will leave with this thought - good luck is finding a whole kleenix in your basket of dry clothes.
