PJ Day? No way!!

This week is Spirit/Drug Free Week at my school (where I do my internship). Well my superviosr told me it was pajama day today. I talked her into wearing pjs today because she didn't want to do it alone. I walked into school this morning and no one had them on. I kept thinking how horrible everyone's school spirit was. If given the chance to wear pjs to school, people should take it. Well we found out that it was pj day at our other school, not the one we were at today (we have two). It was quite embarassing when I showed up in my very loud pajamas. I had a pink shirt on and yellow flowery pants. I even had a baby blue bathrobe to keep me warm. So I dressed up for pj day with only my supervisor. It was quite embarassing walking down the halls and seeing the stares. My supervisor wouldn't even leave the room. I was actually very comfortable after I got over the initial shock of it :).

Laughter is the best medicine

It has been such an amazing weekend. I don't need to go into much detail because most of you were a part of it. I am now at Dave and Becca's wide awake while y'all are sound asleep. I am feeling so content and happy right now. I really needed this weekend. It has been amazing therapy for me. I really don't remember the last time I laughed so much. I really hope I can hold onto this feeling. I always manage to let it slip away. It has been so nice reconnecting with you Jess. I am sad that you are leaving tomorrow. Pardon me if I cry all over you when I have to say good-bye to you tomorrow. I should try to get some sleep because I have been lacking in that area lately.

You're only a day away

I am excited for tomorrow even though I probably won't see Jess until the first few minutes of Friday. I still can't wait. She will be in the same state as I am at least :). Jess, I am so glad that you were able to pull this off. It definitely feels like a God thing...it feels so right. It has made my week knowing that you will be coming this weekend. Of course my week has also seemed endless, waiting in anticipation. It's amazing how reconnecting with you just lifts my spirits. I guess it just reminds me of the magical time Spain was and all that was started there. It was such an amazing time filled with so much change and experience. I feel like it really set the stage for where I'm at now. It never ceases to amaze me how close you can get to someone in only 4 months. This group of friends shared parts of me that I haven't ever shared with anyone else. It was such a time of bonding and clicking that I really don't think I've ever felt before. I feel so blessed to have been a part of it all. It's also amazing that we have been able to stay in touch. I feel like you guys are some of my closest friends. I love getting together with you and feeling like no time has passed. It's so nice having blogs too because I feel like we are able to keep in contact better this way. We can be a part of each other's lives instead of just occasional visitors. And Jess, you are finally going to come up to Yankee Territory. It will be so much fun showing you around this area. I can't wait to relive old memories and make some new ones. So have a safe trip. I need to go and write my paper. I still haven't started yet. Hasta MANYANA!! TOMORROW, TOMORROW, I LOVE YA, TOMORROW..........

I hate it when things don't go my way

I have been sick for the last two days with strep throat. It started last week with a series of bad headaches. Then Saturday my chest felt dry and my voice got scratchy. Sunday at 3 a.m. I woke up with a fever of 101.6. I spent all day in bed Sunday and I felt better Sunday night. I woke up Monday and knew that I had strep. So I decided to call my supervisor then have my morning to rest and get my doctor to call in a prescription. My plan was to feel better in time to go to my two classes and be ready for work tomorrow. As you know by my title things didn't go according to plan. My doctor wouldn't call in a prescription, she wanted to see me. It was fine, my plan would still work. I would see her in the morning then get the medicine and even get to La Salle early to make up some grad assistantship hours. Like I said, it didn't work out. They couldn't fit me in until 4:45 p.m. I decided that couldn't work for me because it was during my first class. So I called my old doctor's office (even though the doctor there is creepy) and wanted to see if they would call in a prescription. They wouldn't because it had been 2 years since I had been there. They had a space at 10:30 to see me though. My plan had hope again. I headed to King of Prussia, planning to stop at BBB to drop off my overdue paperwork (that I did at home without pay like the psycho I am) and then head to La Salle to work a few hours before class. My plan was perfect again. I got to the doc's office (a half hour away) and discovered that they didn't accept my crappy student insurance. My plan was ruined yet again. Discouraged and defeated I headed to BBB. I was feeling angry and resentful at the situation and the medical field and insurance companies. I decided to show them by not going to the doctor at all. I headed back to my apartment to rest because I felt really sick again by this time. I decided to keep my appointment at 4:45 because it would only hurt me if I didn't get medicine. I need to be careful with strep throat....it goes straight to the kidneys. So I drove to KOP again and finally got medicine. I wasted two hours today driving back and forth to the same town for doc's appts. So I had to miss class today but I still accomplished the same goal: I got medicine. Moral of the story: THINGS DON'T ALWAYS GO ACCORDING TO PLAN.....I guess it was God's way of telling me to stop and rest. I did plenty of that these past two days. I am ready to get back to work though. Two days out of commission is too much for me.

I've got that feeling again

It's so hard to describe but if you've ever felt it, you will know exactly what I mean. I have the exhausted feeling again. The kind of tired that goes way beyond feeling sleepy. It's the kind of tired that you feel it in your stomach and limbs. It's the kind of tired where it takes too much energy to even formulate words. You feel it in your head and every part of you. It influences everything about you, even how you see and think. It's back again and I know it won't go away for three more months. It makes me dread getting out of bed because I usually have a 10 to 15 hour work/school day ahead of me. It makes me cringe because I know that my only break for the day will be driving in traffic to the next location. I figured out that I am working 60-70 hours a week between 3 jobs and I have 16 credits (4 classes). It's just nuts. I am feeling really discouraged today. I am totally worn out. I am also dreading my birthday and the new age I will be. It seems to be coming with a hurtling speed. I am almost at my breaking point and it is only October. Usually my breaking point comes in December. I don't even have any ganas to check other blogs so I hope everyone is doing ok.
