Wow, I’ve been busy! A few things have been going on, which have kept me from being in touch:
- I went to China for a week. All I can say is wow! There is so much going on in the world, it’s impossible to understand everything. All you can do is try to process glimpses of it, which I am still trying to do.
- I got devastatingly sick after China! I got some crazy vaccines off the recommended list, including Typhoid, Hep A and the adult Polio booster, but I didn’t get a flu shot. I had the worst case of Influenza A (based on my friend who had the same symptoms and actually got tested and Tamiflued). I was laid up for a week, and all tinfoil hats and woo aside, I will be getting a flu shot from here on out. It was terrible. Everyone tells me the flu shots were no good this year, but all I know is the people I spent my time with who DID get flu shots were fine, and I almost died.
- Because of the China trip and one other class, I had two MASSIVE papers to write. I can handle studying for tests and writing, but when in every waking moment I have to be writing for school or feel guilty about not writing for school, it’s hard to write creatively for myself (and you).
But I’m still here, and better than ever (I think). I have some big news coming soon I’m looking forward to sharing, but it’s not quite ripe yet.
Thanks for reading!
