Hi guys :) I have a sore foot because a fatty trod on my foot in a stiletto heel :(
Your poor abused, starving animals Vida! jk
I got 100% in my AS Biology module
I missed basketball again today but I have a show tomorrow so fingers crossed for good weather. I need to clean my tack this evening but also catch up on sleep I missed yesterday! Hope everyone is good, nice weekends?
Hey everyone :) I'm back - I've been lurking and reading but not feeling like posting much. I've had some good and bad few days; my anti-depressants are finally starting to give me longer lifts, and while I've had some lows, I'm managing them better, so that's good progress. My doctor continues to be really reassuring, which is something I very much need. I don't want to get too much into it, but my anaemia and blood deficiencies stem from dietary problems, and I am being referred to a psychiatrist to work on them. Don't worry, I'm not anorexic or bulimic or anything - I eat lots of food and want to put on weight and so on.
Uni has also been up and down, and I now have a deep loathing for one of my lecturers, whom I have creatively and derogatively renamed :) My personal tutor is very understanding of my problems, which is fortunate, though I'm still working out what I want to tell him about the dietary issues as they're something that's very difficult for me to talk about to anyone.
I went swimming today, up at uni. One of my housemates took me, and we went to the 25m pool instead of the big 50m pool cos I can't actually swim xD He taught me the movements for breaststroke and I began practicing them, and also had fun bobbing about in the water, clinging to a float and pretending to be a porpoise :) It's the first time I've been swimming in a pool for a couple of years, and it's been a while since I last swam in lake or sea.
Snow...What I would give for a nice snow storm. We are waiting for a bad line of storms that are suppose to hit this afternoon. I live in tornado alley so the information is very up to date when that time of year rolls around.
Tornado alley map, I live at the very northern tip of the red blob in the middle.
I cross my fingers and hope you won't be hitted by those storms, Vida!
I've run errands today and going to start a practical training period at a local library in the next month. That's good because I'll get a little money again when I start it. (It's something like the course that I took before Christmas and support people to stay in working life. Even if I'm not going to stay in working life permanently before I've studied more and got a some kind of career. That reminds me of it that the joint application system has been opened today so I have to apply to schools that I've planned soon. My gap year is almost over).
I'd gladly send you the now Vida :)
I would lose my sanity if I lived where you do! I'm so very afraid of tornadoes. We are lucky enough to not get them here (although we do get volcanos, boiling water from the ground and earthquakes instead )
Goodness Vida, I didn't realize that we were that close to each other, I live just east of the orange blob on the very northern Arkansas border!
It's SUPER windy here but it's sunny and 75*F... Beautiful!
I'm going to go get groceries before the weather turns on us.
Have a wonderful day everyone!!!
We are about 4 hours drive time to Eureka Springs, so no not far at all.
It sunny here to which makes me nervous on storm days. (heating of the lower atmosphere can make storms worse) The wind is howling, I just heard it rattle the windows Gusting 40-45 mph and higher is my guess. (64-72 kph)
