17th September 2008

I can't believe I stayed in school finishing my final piece for art till 4:30. That an extra hour and a half X_X

I didn't feel that bad at the time, but now the tiredness has just hit me like a brick wall. And I lost an hour & a half of my free time :(

Anyway, gotta go eat some hotdogs.

9th September 2008

Even though the world may implode in the next month due to the big bang experiment, I feel heaps better than I did on my last post! Hooray!

I've gotta be really quick because we're going to see the lambanana army in town for 5pm, but just thought I'd have one last post in case it all ends tomorrow XD

We saw La Machine at the weekend. One of the most amazing things I have EVER seen. It was proper towering over us at one point and I got all choked up during the finale I found it so amazing! XD Seriously, I'll cry at anything. I'll post a picture next time (if there is a next time :P), but pictures do not do it justice!

Anyway, gotta go get changed UBERquick.

2nd September 2008

I feel really down right now.

For numerous reasons: I was actually meant to go back to school today but didn't because I had a migraine early this morning. And it was really weird because I woke up and felt sick so went the bathroom and my vision practically went, I had ringing in my ears, broke out into a sweat, felt dizzy and I kinda collapsed on the toilet (the lid was down XD) where I sat and waited for it to pass. But it was so scary because I didn't really know what was happening. Anyway, I think I must have passed out or fell asleep or something because I opened my eyes some time later and my hearing was fine again, but I had that little tell-tale squiggle in my vision that told me it was a migraine. To tell the truth I was slightly relieved because the whole going nearly blind/ringing ears thing scared me.
So I staggered into my parents room, told them, and my dad went to sleep in my bed so I could sleep in the same room as my mum. Then all the other migraine crap came - the banging headache, nausea, etc.
I'm okay now but I still feel sick and I sneezed before and (because I moved my head suddenly) I got an extremely bad pain in my head. Couple feeling sick all day and a sensitive head with feeling drowsy and you can see why I feel bloody awful.

I'll probably be in school tomorrow but something (something not too fantastic) has just recently came to light concerning a close friend which probably won't help things.

I also think TOTM is approaching, so that isn't making things much better.

Sigheth. I hope everything improves by the end of the week.
