Another day.

Well today I got out and it was the first day I really felt okay enough to get out. Mom, Dad, and I went to the grocery together, but before that we stopped by the Toyota dealership. This year I am gathering money for a new car and I have decided on Toyota as the new brand to buy from. I have a 2007 Hyundai Elantra and it is giving me so many problems that I can’t stand it anymore. I am hoping to make a down payment by August on a Toyota Yaris iA. So I met a really nice gentlemen and he showed me the inside of a Yaris and I definitely think it is the one for me. The trunk space is a big Wow! We then went and got some food at Sonic’s. Though we had to wait forever. After that we finally went to the grocery. I had a pretty good day, but my chest is still hurting me. I’m just hoping that it stops hurting soon. Well that’s it for now. Talk soon.



A long update coming

Hi everyone,

So I haven’t posted in forever and I can tell you that there has been a lot going on for me. Early during this month I saw my neurologist (brain doctor) and found out that my battery for my VNS (Vagal Nerve Stimulator) was going to need to be changed like asap. So the next day, I called neurosurgery and I was surprised to find out that I got an appointment with them that same day. Although the surgeon was different, he was real nice and explained the risks and such as before. That day I got scheduled for my surgery, which was yesterday. Yesterday was a long day for me. I didn’t get much sleep. I woke up at 11:41 of Wednesday night and couldn’t sleep. I had to take a shower with a specific medical substance they gave me. I was also very hungry and thirsty. My Dad and I were the only ones to go since my mom had a migraine. We got there at five and they did the general stuff. My surgery was at seven and the last thing I remember is them having me take out my daith earrings. I will have to get those put back in. After the surgery I woke up and left about 9:30. On the way home we stopped at Sheetz (not the one I work at) and Dad got me a milkshake since I hadn’t had much of anything to drink. It was so good! Now I’m having a lot of pain and can’t drive until I am finished with the narcotics I am on. Ugh. So in four weeks I see the neurosurgeon about the surgery and to check up on the VNS.

Besides that, everything is going ok. However, I will update later. Got some studying to do. Have a good one and I promise I will update.


Happy Presidents Day and updates

It’s Presidents Day, so I thought I would wish everyone a Happy Presidents Day! It sucks that we don’t get off for school like MLK Jr. day. I think we should celebrate our presidents, because without the first president, our country would never have been. That’s my opinion though. You can disagree or agree. I’m not going to get upset.

Anyway, life has been busy for me. Last Friday I had to skip one of my lectures and a quiz for Geology 101 due to a major migraine. I talked to my professor today and he said I couldn’t make it up, but that there was room for a missed quiz. Next time (if there is) I miss, I need to contact him before hand. I had my lab today, and we’re studying topographic maps. I can tell you it is not easy. I did not think I would have to be doing math. Well, it’s something I have to learn.

As for work, everything is going pretty well. I am very happy and love being around my co-workers. I get my paycheck this week. So I am looking forward to that. Tomorrow I go see the headache specialist, which I am hoping she will give me new meds because the ones I am on have side effects that are really bad.

Well that’s all for now. Have a good night.


It’s been forever

I know it’s been forever since I have posted anything. This is mostly due to the fact that I have been concentrating on college and work life. Also, I recently got a sinus infection and am getting over that. College and work have been going well. Getting used to both are a little hard, but I am extremely happy to have a job and be in college now. January has been a month where I have been getting used to the school and such.

Next month is a month where I have to get on track. I was supposed to be 30 lbs less by now and I’m not. The campus offers a fitness area and a huge swimming pool. So I plan to try to go at least twice a week. I am also going to try to find ways to increase my steps and do other things for myself to lose this weight. I can lose the weight.

Anyway, those are my thoughts for now. I will update soon. Promise.


It’s been so long!

I’m sorry I haven’t kept the blog up to date. So what has been going on in my life? Well I started school at WVU on Monday. We just basically did an overview of the class and syllabus on Monday for both of my classes. I had my first lecture on Wednesday for Planet Earth, then tomorrow I have my second one. I am excited, but feel a little out of place. These students are a lot different than the ones were like when I went to school. They’re on their phones a lot before and while in class, wear holey pants (even in the Winter), and are not afraid of saying the ‘f’ word out of class. It’s a new experience for me.

Work is going well. I’m having good experiences and am mainly working up front. I love doing so and everyone, for the most part, is nice to me. I’ve had some bad experiences, but I’ve tried to learn from them.

I’ve been sick since last week, but I am starting to get over it I think. Well that is all that is going on for now. I will update, hopefully soon. Have a good night.


I hate my body

Not really. It just seems that my body hates me lately. So this morning I get up to go downstairs. I am wide awake. I know where my surroundings are. It is now too dark for me to see. I am paying attention to where I am going. So I get to the stairs and I slip. I fall on my butt, however, my knee is sprained and I can tell you it is a very bad sprain. This is not good! I have job training on Sunday to resume. I can’t have a sprain! Dammit! So I have got to get better tomorrow. Keep off it some, ice it, and wrap it in a brace. Let’s hope it gets better by Sunday. Pray for me everyone.


A mish mash

Yesterday is what I call a ‘mish mash.’ I had another day of training which was 9:00 am to 1:00 pm. When I get off I find out that my dad had chest pains and is in the E.R. He was at the dealership getting the car worked on. My mom had my sister take her to the E.R. When I got off I went there as quickly as possible. My mom called me, I hadn’t checked my phone for messages. After making sure he was okay, they kept him overnight for observation, we went to Sonic’s and got something to eat to take home then went back to the dealership to pick up the car.

So my mom is taking forever and I go in and she finally comes. I find out that she is doing a state inspection which takes just a few minutes on the car. I then get to talking to the guys telling them that my car is clicking from cold to hot. I also tell them some other things that are wrong with it. I have had my car for 10 years and it is a little over 70,000 miles. So the guy said that with all the things I would have to do since its in its 10th year (it would take about $1500) to maybe look at a used certified car. Which I probably will be soon.

Anyway, that was my day. Talk soon.
