It's All Part Of The Show

This past weekend was probably the last nice weather weekend we'll have here in Michigan. It was sunny and in the 60's. Unfortunately, I did not get to enjoy it. I was in bed for the majority of the weekend. At first, I thought it was just a bad cold...but then I got the chills and had a 102 degree fever, so my first thought was "SWINE!" I stayed in bed all day yesterday, and when I got up to go to the bathroom I didn't even feel like me...just felt like a zombie. I don't remember any conversations with anyone...I just remember getting Powerade, and I woke up with an empty mug near me so I had tea at some point. I had to read through all my tweets/status updates to remember what exactly I said, because I honestly DO NOT remember. I do remember on Saturday night when I couldn't sleep and was just sitting in my bed in pain and shivering that I wrote something very depressing/reflecting of a dark time in my life. I'm not ready to share it yet, because there are several people who read this blog who have no idea what I have been through, and I don't know that they are ready to know yet.

Today I finally had the energy to be out and about so I ran some errands. While doing this, I got a text from Dean that said "(Insert Name of Student Here) says hi, she misses you, and she hopes you feel better soon". Oh my gosh, I think it was the best text I've ever received in my life. It made me smile so much just knowing that this kid cared about me.

In other news, today I created a vision board. I learned about it thanks to Tyler, who got the idea from Syesha. It's a bulletin board, but instead of posting to do lists and pictures, you post hopes. goals, dreams, places you want to go, people to meet, etc. I put blue and green fabric around the ends so it looks nicer and am excited to post things to it. Also, I bought a map of the United States and I am going to put little thumb tacks wherever my friends are located. I need more posters/pictures, so send some my way if you want :-)

You should all try and add a vision board to your room. Let's keep this thing going. We need as much positivity in our lives as possible to accomplish our dreams.

I KNOW I need to thank people tonight because I haven't done it in forever, but my eyes burn and I have to be in an EIGHT hour food management class tomorrow.

Thankful for:
-AMAZING community members who make me soup, juice, toast, etc when I am sick.
-The Sisters of Mercy who offered to take me to the doctor today and who so quickly jumped to support me and show their concern.
-The power of prayer.
-Ability to talk about spirituality openly and honestly.
-Neti pot.(NOT a drug).
-Backups who are always there.
-Laurence! He raised so much money at his fundraiser this past weekend! This kid is amazing! He inspires me so much.

I love you all. If this twitter party does not settle down I won't be asleep before midnight which is a giant no-no for me. Goodnight!
