Productive, for Sick

So I eventually fell asleep and woke up a bit after 12. A bit of computer, suffered my way through brushing my teeth (I hate it SO MUCH when I'm sick), and made it down for a quick lunch.

I've endeared Annie to me! Everyone teases her for the way she talks. After she got my meal for me today I mentioned, "I'm sick again! Worse than before!" and she was very kind. She came out and told me to drink lots of water and tea and to eat fruit. An orange, specifically. So she came out and got me one specifically, then wished me well and told me she hoped to see me up and about and not sick. It reminded me of the Aggie lunch ladies and how kind they were - giving me free stuff when I was sick, commenting on my studying, watching out for me, etc. I love smiling at the lunch women and men.

I came back up and actually got some stuff done today. Typed up my chemistry and plant notes. Still need to read my plant Blackboard stuff, type up the rest of my exploit notes and read the stuff up there plus take assessments, get my forms to the Environment in Practice professor, and type up my Living Cell notes so I can get them to Sarah. Mainly it's going to be Exploit that's the pain, I think.

I hung around with Batgirl and the others for bits of time. After I had finished chemi I went out and read on my two pillows in the doorway to my room / in the corridor. People chuckled at me, but they're finally getting the idea that I really am just strange.

They all still think I sleep loads and loads. I grin; I can take it. I was fed random bits and pieces today - digestives Matt didn't want, some Pringles from Batgirl, leftover Chinese from Annabelle and her boyfriend.

I also watched The Fifth Element and half of Harold and Maude. I love both movies so, so much.

Tomorrow is another weekend day. Love love love. I still haven't called the UU group because I don't have a mobile but I also don't want to go to my first service sick. Not so thrilled about the idea of being on the phone, either. Perhaps I should find their email or something. If they have one.

I'm heading off now. Time for some reading and sleeping! Loving this book.

Teh Kwii's Kweh

  • 16:04 Sickness is still consuming me. I don't know when I turned into such a whiny-face. I just want to read, watch movies, and stay in bed!
  • 08:19 @sarcastic_kitty Whyyyy are you not using your kitty for a pillow? I thought that's what pets were for!
  • 12:09 I only have five chapters left to write of the novel I've been doing on-and-off since sophomore year! Holy crow!
And that's a wrap, folks! Kupokweh!

Battling Pigments

I've got in another tussle with some hair dye.

Batgirl was dying Laura's friend's hair and they had extra purple highlight dye (which is really bright), so Batgirl attacked me with it.

I now have a tissue on my head, and on top of that my fringe with purple dye painted all on it.

The dye wins again!

I woke up today before lunch, which was impressive. I didn't feel like going down though. I thought I might regret it since they don't serve dinner Sats and Suns, but I just wasn't hungry.

I took a shower which made me feel a bit better but my room was still a mess.

I saw Batgirl a bit. We hung out for a little while. Then I checked out my novel and realized I only have 5 more chapters to write in the high school one! It made me really sad. I did the outline back in sophomore year sitting up in the bleachers. I think I started it during some sort of assembly, or maybe when I was out of gym class, or something. It's just close to the heart like that and it's almost done. It's hard to believe.

Batgirl's friend Laura came with two other friends, one of whom wished to dye her hair black and purple. So we went to the bathroom and they worked on that again. I came back to my room and don't even know what I did. I went back when they were highlighting and did my fringe. I love it!

Dropped in at Alyshia's room when everyone was hanging out in there. But I didn't want to stay in there doing nothing. I came back to my room and cleaned it up! Yaaay. Even changed my duvet cover over into the blue one with the rainbow wave.

I haven't done much for work because I'm pathetic. So I know my schedule for the week but I didn't do any more note-typing. I've been reading through the Herbarium site that was posted on the Plant Diversity blackboard. Then I'll have more to go through. Sigh. Bad Kiwi.

Tomorrow I'll have to get some stuff done. I may have to create a rule of pretending I'm at school until a certain time each day - 4 or 5 or something - and allow myself very limited Internet until then. It'll work out especially since I end up rotting in front of a computer when none of my Ammy friends are on anyway. I should just get my work done in the afternoon and not in the evening as is my custom, because that's when I'll want to hang out and chat. In high school that used to be in the afternoons. So that has to change!

Tomorrow I have chemi from 9 - 12, have to deliver my forms to the Prof. of Enviro, don't have anything until Writers' Society at 7.30. So I really need to inspire myself to work in-between that time.

Lash pointed out that the main difference between high school and uni is that I have to motivate myself. But I'm thinking, well, that isn't actually a change... A lot of stuff that has been a change for others hasn't felt like much of a change for me.

I still just hope I can do this!
