I slept in late because I turned off my alarm but went back to bed. I slept for what felt like five minutes, but turned out to be thirty. I had to scramble to get all of my stuff together for school. I rushed to eat my cereal and woke up my sister late. She had to get ready as well. We were both scrambling around the house trying to get ready for school.
Because we were rushing around the house, we did not leave on time. We left the house about twenty minutes late. This means we left the house at about 7:20. We usually try to leave the house at around seven so that we are not late for the morning announcements.
Because we did leave late, I was late for the morning announcements. We are supposed to be there at 7:15 so that we can practice for the morning announcements. I was ten minutes late. In this time, we could have done another practice. It was not horrible that I was late though because the announcers had not arrived either, so we were still waiting on them.
This was just one of my experiences with the domino effect. I was late for the morning announcements because we did not leave the house on time because I woke up late. This experience that taught me that everything has consequences.
