So here we are. Election day 2004. This is gonna be a tough one. Is it time for a change? Or could a change put the US in a downward spiral? Or perhaps not changing will do so. Who knows. What this election comes down to is who will not mess up more than the other. Anyways, i already voted so i hope all of you do the same. Now on with the update.|
The past few months have been very trying on my family and I. Specifically becuase my grandfather is very ill. He has been in and out of the hospital for a couple months now. Last weekend i went to Florida to visit Fig (more about that later) but i had to come home early because my grandfather wasn't expected to live past the week. I wanted to see him. When i got to the hospital he looked terrible. He was extremely pale, paralyzed on the right side of his body. He recognized me though. At least my grandmother said he did. He gave a little twitch to indicate a nod. Im happy to say he's doing better. He is still alive, getting over the pnemonia, but still paralyzed. They moved him out of critical care so that's a good sign.
For a couple of years now, since my grandfather got in his late 80's, i've been trying to prepare myself for a death in the family. I have been very fortunate and not lost anyone close to me yet, so i am unaware as to how i will react when it does happen. Im trying to be strong, for me, my family, but it's hard. I don't want my parents worrying about me or my sister right now. We're both doing ok. Well, she's doing ok. As for myself, i could be better. Physically, im actually doing well. My heart is doing ok from what i can tell, i still have to go see my cardiologist, but im not expecting anything bad. Also sometime next year i think i have to go for another MRI to makes sure that calcification on my brain isn't getting any bigger. But i haven't gotten any migrains in a while either so im not expecting anything to come from that. As for my mental state....idk, its varies temendously, but that is to be expected given my current situation. I have a year left of school and i don't wanna be depressed again. School is hard enough as it is and i don't want anythign else making it worse.
Speaking of which, i got the test results back from over the summer. Some of you know what im talking about, others don't. I'd rather not post it here cause it's extremely personal. But if u really wanna know, i guess just IM me and i'll give u the bottom line.
Now, as i said earlier i went to see Fig the other weekend. Greg and Drew dropped me off at the airport on wednesday afternoon, and i got to orlando early evening. I recieved a warm welcome hug from Megan and a straddling by fig. He really knows how to make a guy feel welcome ;) Anyways that night we just chilled. Ate some firehouse subs, watched the yanks. It was like old times, minus the subs and being in florida. So maybe it wasn't like old times. Anyways, i slept on the aero bed in fig's living room. Aparently his g/f thinks it's "weird" for 2 guys to be sleeping together, naked, on top of the covers. Whatever megan! ahaha Ummmmmmmm lets see, what else. Idk, we really didn't get a chance to do much. i wasn't there as long as i would've liked but it was relaxing nonetheless. Thursday night i hung out with Kat. That was fun, we rented a movie and just relaxed. I finally met her roomate. And she has a cute cat named miles :D Lets seeeeeeeeee....oh! Apparently i have some LJ fans at stetson, so im gonna give a shout out to Paige :D HI PAIGE!!!
Sovsapalooza '04....November 13th...be there or be metaphorically "square" If u want a t-shirt, let sovs know, i think it's like 4 bucks a pop.
Went out to Pete and Eldas with the guys on Saturday night. Good times were definitely had. An old lady threw a napkin at us. And the old guys wanted ust to beat her up. But we didn't. But we could've. So watch out lady!
I think that's about it. Well, that's all i can remember at the moment. Stupid ADD. Anyways, comment if u read this. I wanna feel loved :D k, bye!
