OF COURSE THAT COULDN'T HAPPEN.
I finally got ALL of the stuff done that I needed to do (which was a hell of a lot), and now I am still in my *&@#ing dorm!
I went out to my car, planning to leave, only to find that one of my tires had a cute little bubble bulging out of it, leaving the tire all prepped to blow out! So I called AAA and they put my lil' spare on for me, but that's nothing to drive for 4hrs on.
So... I've been calling any tire place that's open to find one that has the right tire...
I'm still here.
Hopefully I will get ahold of a place early enough tomorrow and get a new tire so that I can get home sometime this weekend.
