Berry Lime Sublime

*Sneeze* (And that was a for real sneeze, not one that I just made up for this post.)

You can see from the beginning of my post that I am sick... and very very bored I might add. I could tell on Wednesday night that I was getting sick, and sure enough, yesterday I woke up feeling pretty crappy. What made it worse was that I had a test today, and I felt lousy the whole way through. I couldn't remember things I had studied, and I got everything mixed up in my mind. Hmmm. Oh well, it's over.

I took a two hour nap this afternoon, which is so unlike me. I don't really ever take naps. But my head was pounding and I laid down on the couch and was out. I really haven't been doing anything today.


I got home after my test, and I've been laying around ever since. I'm very bored. I wish I didn't feel sick, because there is a lot of stuff I would really like to be doing right now.

I'm a runaround kind of person. I don't like to be still for too long. I like to get out there and do it. When I'm tired, however, I need my recharge time at home. I guess I need my recharge time, because there is no way that I am going out right now.

I will stay in for the rest of the evening with... well probably myself. *Sneeze* Anna has a hang out thing and Carolyn's friend Lindsey is here for the weekend. I bet they will go out and do something, too. If you feel like hanging out with a person who is constantly blowing their nose and sneezing, give me a call.

Ok, enough about being sick. I wanted this to be a real update.

There have been many days where I have been so moved to write, but I couldn't (studying). And now, I have absolutely nothing, and I don't have any passion stirring up in me. It's mainly just mucus.

So what's been going on with me?

I went to a women's discipleship class for church on Tuesday. I can't express how excited I am about this! Meeting and talking to "older" women is something I am very interested in. I want to hear about their lives and their struggles, the ups and downs, what they've learned along the way... I can't wait to get to know these women better. It makes me excited just thinking about it!

Two of my British friends will (hopefully) be coming to visit me in August. CAN YOU BELIEVE IT!? After all this time... they will get to see where I live! I can't believe it, and it feels so unreal. I'm not sure what we'll be doing (advice, please?), but hopefully some great American pastimes. Like shopping. (Ok, that is kind of a joke, but I'm sure I'll take them to the Galleria or something.)

I just found out that my sister made 100 on her first math test. I've been tutoring her for the past two weeks, since she's not a "math person" and I am a math & science education major. It's been a tough struggle, but she did it! Actually, she was allowed to retake her exam. She studied for 5 hours every day, and always was on top of her homework. She worked HARD. And yet when she first took the exam, she got a 59 and couldn't understand why. She had studied so hard, and her mistakes were stupid ones. So she went and talked to her prof, and he said that he believed she was a hard worker and good student, so she could retake the exam. She got 100. This makes me think about what kind of teacher I want to be. I firmly believe in giving everyone second chances. I have experienced awful teachers this past semester and I know how frustrating it can be when you don't get credit for things you should get credit for.

Paris is back in jail. Heck yes. That's all I'm saying about that.

Anna is getting a smoothie for me right now from Jamba Juice. She's so sweet like that. :)

Well my friends, I will have to update again when my brain isn't so fuzzy.

awwwwww KT... I can't believe you have a cold :(I went to Eden Soical Welfare founddation to help people today.Nothing there seemed to make me feel so surprised until I saw the news that you catch a cold!!)
I competely understand how you feel because I have been going through it for at least one week. I know it is really crappy and horrible because having a cold sometimes means feeling bad and bored at the same time!! (I could not have passion to do anything, either. Actually, I just missed a birth party of my friend.)
I am feeling a lot better than last week, but I am still having a cold. +_+! I guess we really need more rests even though taking a nap sounds like an activity belonging to the older.

In addition to rests, I guess taking hot/warm tea is am also wise solution to cure a cold. Your message made me think of one of the reasons that I cannot get well is that I don't love driking hot water.

I will be praying for you and me to get better soon because having a cold in hot summer time is kind of weird.

Btw: "Paris is back in jail"! hahahah Yes! I think it's so funny that you post this. Since I got a cold, it's the first time that I laughed a lot!!! Hahaha~~you are still very hilarious!
