I'm feeling much better than I was this time last week. On Friday morning, I finally went to Health Services and the doctor prescribed my an inhaler, which seriously made all the difference. When I was younger, I would often get asthmatic-bronchitis, and I knew that it was heading in that direction. Of course, the nurse was like, "You seem fine to me". She should have followed me up three flights of stairs and then listened to my lungs...she would have been hummin' a different tune, I'll tell you that much. Alas, I was feeling much better by Saturday, so thank God for that. I hadn't been that sick in so long, and I do not wish to repeat it for another year.
Saturday was great because I got a dress at JC Penney's for prom, and instead of $85, it was only $62!! It's a lovely black dress; simple, but elegant. I'm getting so excited for prom...much more excited than I was in high school. Then again, this year I have a date that won't leave the minute we get into the restaurant. Oh, high school boys. I also saw Joe's play again on Saturday night, and he did a marvelous job, as per usual. It's going to be difficult to see the play in the fall without him...I haven't missed one since freshman year. We'll just tack it onto the growing list of things that will just not be the same. I'm so glad that rehearsals are over...the smallest amount of free time is now available, and we really need to take everything we can get at this point.
Things are going well, though. The Lady Bonnies played a great game yesterday and made it to the quarterfinals at the WNIT, which is a first in SBU history, and though they didn't win, I am proud of them and of my school for having made it so far. Allison also motivated me to study ALL DAY yesterday for my two tests today, but it paid off because I kicked ass on both of them today. Sometimes it pays to be studious, I guess.
I'm anticipating a pretty good week. I wasn't on duty tonight, and I won't be on duty on a weekend again until Saturday, April 18th, so that's pretty sweet. I'm having dinner at my Arabic professor's townhouse tomorrow night...random. He really loves his students, no lie. I need to make cookies or something. Blast my inability to be domestic! Thursday starts junior prom: Skellar in Bona gear, then Friday is the decades dance party at the Premier Banquet Center (we're being flappers!!), and Saturday is the formal dinner/dance at The Old Library...totally stoked. And I'm really glad that almost all of my friends are going, because this may be one of the only times we spend together this entire year, and quite possibly next year, too (though hopefully not).
I have written entirely too much. My apologies. I hope all is well with all of you, flist! Be well and soar. :-)
