Fun with the Flu

....not. So I left for JanFest (High School January Band Festival at UGA) on Thursday with 8 other band nerds and a director. We were all so excited about this trip. Not only is it a great learning experience, but it's a fun thing to do, too. Unfortunately, on Friday in the afternoon I started feeling sick and within 24 hours I was having all the flu symptoms and my mom came to pick me up from UGA. :( Then we called our doctor and he said, "Yes, that sounds like the flu." and prescribed us tamiflu and me some major pain meds. They seem to be working pretty well right now for me. I was also supposed to go on a date with my boyfriend on Monday to celebrate our 1 month, but I don't think that's going to end up happening either. :/ But I guess I can just pray and hope for the best. Oh, and homecoming is in 1 week.
Good news from this weekend: I did not make last chair at JanFest! :) I was 3rd out of 4 oboes, but at least it wasn't last. I like to call myself the Principal second part which is a fancy way of saying the highest ranked person on the 2nd part. (There's only 2 parts though, haha.) And for the day that I was in practice, I actually liked my director. (Although I think he... um.. isn't sure of his.. uh... manhood) He was very good at getting his point across.
Hopefully I will feel better soon. Prayers would be appreciated. :) Hasta luego!

Bible teacher AND AN Elvis impersonator

I'm having issues with youtube right now, but watch that video. It's my Bible teacher from the previous post. :)


woo! it's been 2009 for 8 days now! I haven't posted on this thing since LAST YEAR! ........ yeah, that was bad.

Anywho, so I thought to myself at the beginning of Christmas, "Well gee, self, now that I have a break from school I can post more on my blog! Yes!" How many days did I post?
yup, just one. But hey at least I'm posting now. :) We've started our 2nd semester at school and its been great so far. My classes are good and I think its going to be a fun semester. This semester my Bible class is Apocalyptic Literature which is a study of books like Revelation, Daniel and Ezekiel. My favorite Bible teacher is teaching which makes it even better. This teacher can make the Bible come to life out of the pages. He is absolutely amazing.
He's also an Elvis impersonator... :) I'm going to post a video in a second.

Oh my gosh! We just got a package with HUGE BUBBLE WRAP! My and my brother popped them. That was so much fun! and noisy! haha
