It’s been a while, and similar to an old friend calling, I feel the need to catch up with everyone out there!
I’ve been very busy but things slowed down a little last week when I became very sick. Not hospital sick, but definitely “not going to class/my whole body hurts/don’t bother me” sick. And because of this, I did the unspeakable….I WENT TO STUDENT HEALTH (dun dun dun). No matter where I am, I dread going to student health. I have this fear that no matter how sick I am, I’ll pick up another, WORSE disease from going there. Surprisingly, it was a GREAT experience. The doctor was pretty sure I had mono and put me on some meds. Luckily, I felt better by Friday so it definitely wasn’t mono (yay)!
Being sick kind of gives you a “free pass” from accomplishing all the things you need to get done…and then it was the weekend. It was a wonderful weekend! The grad students got together on Friday at a local establishment and relaxed. Saturday I climbed Kamiak Butte with my good friend Kirk at 8am. It was a gorgeous day and a gorgeous view! Then I went to a baseball game with my good friend Allen; even though the Cougs lost, it went to extra innings and was just an all around good time. The rest of the day was just spent relaxing, which is hard to come by in grad school.
AND THEN THERE WAS SUNDAY. SUNDAY, SUNDAY, SUNDAY was girls day. 5 girls. One SUV. One trip to Spokane. Unlimited shopping. Sandra’s bridal shower. Shoe shopping. Several long chats with by bestie Stephanie. Oh Sunday….why is it Monday???????
