Wasting Time

So it's spring break now, and what am I doing? Homework. Well, I should be doing homework, rather. I just though I would tell you all that there's nothing much to report. Awesome. I'm trying to sell my truck, but I've gotten no responses. I'm a little afraid it's not going to sell, in which case I'll just keep it. I was just hoping to switch to something a little smaller and with AWD (in other words, a subaru.) Alas. I made 10 dollars worth of copies today at the library, and will probably do the same tomorrow for this NT project I'm working on. And yeah. That's about it. The weather is nice and not cold or snowy. Rick and I leave for Newport on Friday morning, which is really exciting. And Easter is almost here. Woohoo! Oh apparently Blaine started walking this week. I can't believe it! I'm sure he's HUGE by now.

Spring Break...Almost...Here

I'm tired of Greek. Literally and figuratively. I feel like it's slowly defeating me. Ugh. On a brighter note, spring break starts tomorrow at 10 am (after the weekly Greek quiz, of course). I'm in for a fun filled week of...researching in the library. Woohoo! Although Rick and I are going to Newport, RI next weekend. I hope it doesn't rain...it will be nice to get away for a while, and he says Newport is awesome. I'll post pics when we get back. The sun is out and the snow is melting, so hopefully that means spring is officially here. Umm...what else? That's really about it. Hopefully I'll get alot done over spring break. I need to, so I can get home for Blaine's birthday and not have a ton of stuff hanging over my head. If I could get this project for NT out of the way and get the resources together for that paper, that would be a major step in the right direction. I have about 70 pages of writing due at the end of the semester, not to mention a Greek final, so I'll have to start stepping it up. I guess that will mean staying up later and getting up earlier...joy. Anywho I should go back to studying Greek. It's taking the place of my run today (so I have to make it up tomorrow). Thanks, Greek language. Thanks.
Peace y'all.

Yay for Yale. Just thought I would let my readers know (and I am sure that all of you were waiting with bated breath) that I did indeed get into the MDiv program at Yale. Woohoo! As a friend told me, now it won't matter who wins the Harvard-Yale game. Too true, too true.

On a different note, it's March 16th and snowing like crazy. WTF New England? IT'S MARCH!!!!!!! And on top of all of that it is supposed to rain the entire day tomorrow, which as you may know is Boston's official holiday (St. Patrick's day). Good luck to all of you going to Southie to watch the parade in the rain. Drink another beer and maybe being soaking wet in thirty degree weather won't bother you as much as it normally would.

Tomorrow, Tomorrow...

Howdy everyone. I hear from Yale tomorrow, so needless to say my ability to concentrate is significantly less than usual, which makes memorizing Greek vocabulary particularly hard. Sheesh. Just had to get that out there. Other than that...Nathan's been in this week. We went out to dinner last night at Union Oyster House, and then Rick bought us dessert at Quincy Market. It was a really nice evening. Today I think Nathan and I are going to the zoo (mostly because it's warm and sunny and I don't want to waste the nice day) and then tonight the three of us are going to the Celtics game. Should be interesting, to say the least. That's about all here, really. St. Patrick's day is Saturday, but as of now it's supposed to be really really gross. Rick and I were planning on being in Boston, but if it's going to be that gross I don't know if we'll stay here. Who knows. Walking around the city in a rain/snow mix isn't the most fun ever, even if you are drinking copious amounts of Irish beer. We'll see. Anyway, I hope the weather is as nice where you are as it is here! Keep your fingers crossed for me tomorrow...

Adrianne!!!! I couldn't access your blog because I guess it's closed to the public...is there anyway you could invite me to your blog? I'm trying to think of a way to do this without posting emails on blogger...I have tried to getback in touch with you and it never works. So yay! I'm glad you wrote! Anywho I have to go to class. I'm so glad you found me!!!!!!!!!

Up and Runnin'

Howdy folks. Well, it's a week later and I'm finally back to almost normal. I'm still coughing more than usual, especially after walking to class in the cold weather, but I'm feeling like a human being again. Thank God that illness is over...it was horrible! Now I'm just trying to dig myself out of the pile of work that built up around me. Most worrisome at the moment is Greek. I feel so behind...and we have a midterm on Friday. I think the chances of doing well on that exam are very slim. I was given the option to hold it off, but that really wouldn't make things any better, as I have so much other school work to do that I wouldn't really have any extra time to study for the Greek test. I'm just trying to get by in that class at this point. I'll be glad when it's over...I think next year I'll take Hebrew. We'll see.

Speaking of schools I should hear from Yale a week from tomorrow. I'm a little stressed about that...fears that I won't get in, that I was over-confident, etc. Hopefully they will be unfounded fears. We'll see. I'll let you know something once I know something...but pray hard for good news.

On a completely unrelated note, my top dresser drawer broke last night (the underwear drawer, of course). The bottom, which is just a thin piece of wood, had come completely un-nailed form the actual drawer, so basically the bottom out. I tried to renail the whole thing, but I couldn't get the drawer out of the larger frame (I don't even remember how we put the thing together last year) so now the wood is duct-taped to the rest of the drawer. Classy, I know. But I'll just get a new one whenever I move into my place next year.

Ummm...yeah. I should probably start doing some reading, and working on Greek (which makes my stomach hurt just to think about). Peace, y'all.

Strike That

Turns out it is pneumonia after all...I got a call from the doctor yesterday evening giving me the update...he said the radiologist had looked at the chest x rays and found it. Woohoo.

Laid Up

Well, it figures. Saturday it is supposed to be sunny and 50 degrees here in Boston. But what happens to Hilary? She gets sick. Figures. Tuesday morning I woke up with a cough, but figured it was an allergy thing. Went to my seminar and started feeling a lot worse...body aches, fatigue, etc. When I got home my temp. was about 100, so I skipped out on my second class and went to bed. Well, later that night the temp. had climbed to 101 and the cough was worse and I felt like someone had run over me with a truck. So yesterday morning I went to the doctor, thinking I had the flu. I had a fever of 103.1 (I hadn't had a fever that high in a looooooong time) and he thought it might be pneumonia so he had a chest x ray done. He didn't see anything and decided it was the flu. Went home, still had a fever. And Rick hasn't been feeling well so I was afraid I'd given something to him. (By the way Rick has been a superhero to me while I've been sick...coming over to make me dinner and bring me tissues, popsicles, etc. He's the BEST EVER.) This morning I still had a fever of about 101, so that was three days running, which isn't good, and the cough is still around (gotten worse). But I've taken ibuprofen all day and the body aches have gone away, which is nice. Don't know if the fever has officially broken yet, or if it's just down b/c of the medicine. Then tonight I get a call from the doctor, who said the radiologist had looked at my x ray and thought he saw a small bit of pneumonia. So it's not the flu. It's pneumonia. Figures. So I went and got the antibiotic for it. Hopefully the major symptoms will clear up but I have a feeling I'll be coughing for a good while. He told me to take it easy and rest, which means NOT DOING HOMEWORK, for the rest of the week. On the one hand that would seem easy. But today, when I was starting to feel a little better, I just got so bored lying around. I would try to get some reading done (which was a generally unsuccessful thing...couldn't focus) and i understand the need for rest but it's so hard, especially because I know that there's so much work I need to be getting done! Aaahhhh! Oh well. The more I rest the quicker I'll be able to do work.

On a happier note, my brother is coming to visit the week after next. Woohoo!!!
