Wow. Reeser is writing a longer entry. This is an amazing feat because Reeser is really very, very tired. This shouldn’t be surprising though because I only got about 3.5 hours of sleep last night.
I have this terrible cough, and I couldn’t stop coughing long enough for me to fall asleep last night… but then around 1:15 it wasn’t so bad, but then my nose was all stuffy, so I decided to blow my nose (duh).
This turned out to be a bad idea though, because after I blew my nose I felt like it was really runny all a-sudden, but it wasn’t… I was glad I was leaning over the edge of my bed though because when my nose started bleeding it didn’t get all over me or my bedding… but it was hard to keep my hair from falling in the way and I was in a really awkward position, so it took me a while to figure out how to get a tissue and not drip blood on anything that could be hurt by it. Lucky I have a wooden floor.
So, finally I got meself a tissue and took care of my poor nose, and then I had to get out of bed and gather up a wad of tissues to try and clean up most of the blood that ended up dripped on the floor… and today when I got home from school I had to go over that part of my floor with some cleaner because I missed mopping some of it up yesternight. I moved my bed over so I could clean more easily, and somehow it spattered all the way under my bed. How odd…
But yes… fun times—what can I say? I didn’t end up falling asleep until 3:00ish and then got up at 6:30.
So… what did I do today? (Chris, this is to make up for you not getting to call me to-day… so you’ll still be informed! ^_^)
Got up and all that… nothing interesting there… got to Capital a bit early, so my mom & dad went and stopped at Starbucks real quick to get some coffee and then they dropped me off so I could go to class.
We went over quiz questions in our India game book. I’m concerned that our first papers are due on the 6th and we don’t even know our roles yet… I wanna know which historical person I get to be so that I can laugh uproariously (or cry, maybe) when I totally disagree with what I have to say!

I hate the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. I like answering questions though… our prof for this semester asks easier questions or something, because I notice I know the answers to a lot more things than I did last semester. Maybe because last semester seemed to be more opinion oriented… I don’t know. At any rate I answer more questions than I did… esp. when the questions are so easy and NOBODY is answering! It drives me mad! Sometimes we’ll sit in silence after he asks us a question and poor little Reeser is bursting to answer… but thankfully someone else will probably decide to answer eventually. If not, up goes Reeser’s hand to be called on… I just can’t stand sitting there in silence when I know the answer.
But, more than that I can’t stand the Rime of the Ancient Mariner. It’s like (if you’ve seen the movies) something along the lines of “James & the Giant Peach meets Pirates of the Caribbean”. I couldn’t stand it when Mr Parsons taught it to us at Maranatha, and I still can’t strand it. But that’s that.
This is not my favourite class.
I don’t know what’s wrong with me anymore. I’m just out of it completely every time I go to Spanish now-a-days. Hopefully I’ll find a way around it, but until then I shall strive to learn the irregular forms of verbs in the preterite… no que los quise aprender…
Then after school I came home and cleaned my room up and did homework… read more about India and about nutrition, then did Spanish internet homework and now I’m updating this. Fun stuff.
Anyway… know what today is? No? I didn’t think you would… so I’ll tell you.
It’s weird because to-day Chris has been me boyfriend for a whole half of a year. How odd it is to say that because I’m quite sure that last year I was still working hard to convince myself that I should never get my hopes up that anyone would ever like me… but fortunately for me, I have been proven wrong ^_^
Anyways… Chris is feeling kind of sad today. I told him to go to a party for his class because I’m still sick and I decided it would probably be a good idea to not go anywhere this weekend, lest I make anyone else sick (I know, I went to school today… but only because I missed Wednesday & Thursday. I had no choice, I say!). I’m saddened, too because we has not seen each other since last Monday, and now I won’t get to see poor Chris again until this next Thursday -_-
Being ill is no fun.
But at least when I do get to see Chris again next week we won’t have to go through any decontamination processes so that we don’t make each other ill again, so that’ll be nice ’cause I miss my Chris…
Heh… during one of my breaks to-day, I drew a picture that Licorice (Chris’ cat) would be proud of… I shall have to finish it so I can show it to Chris, because it’s pretty funny, I think. Unfortunately, you probably wouldn’t get it if I went and described it for ye.
So, anyhow… this is what I’ve been up to lately. Please keep praying for me with regards to my health (that I will get better, because this cough is really starting to be painful), and my schoolwork because I haven’t even been made to start on my papers yet and already I feel overwhelmed just looking at what I am supposed to do this semester.
I thank you in advance for your prayers, because I really need them, kids… and I hope very much that all of you are more healthy and less stressed as well!
Later days & God bless!
