It is officially summertime, and although things haven’t exactly been going as well as they have before, I’m having a nice time.
My friends are very busy and I have not been hearing from them, so I am looking towards some time alone this next week.
The school that I’m entering this summer issues lots of work over the summer, so I have reading and math almost every day in order to prepare.
I had a doctor’s visit yesterday and it was terrible. I had to do a physical in order to qualify for sports at my school. And I had to talk to the doctor. Apparently if you are over twelve you get to be asked very weird questions. Like do you smoke…??? Of course I said no. Then I had to do exercises. They also measured my vision which happens to be 20/15 which is much better than average. I was so happy to hear that.
Then they had to test my blood. I was begging my mom for any other alternative to this procedure, but there wasn’t. So I started to go into panic mode. We waited and then I had to go into a room and sit in a chair. I had to turn my head away and close my eyes because I hate everything that has to do with needles in my body. I also listened to music. And tried not to look.
I felt a small stab and thought the needle had gone out, but then I snuck a peek (which was not a good idea) and even though it had been about a minute since I felt the stab the needle was still sticking in my elbow. I chose not to see anything else and felt very faint when I left. I was weak the whole rest of the day, and ended up lying in bed for most of it. Apparently they had taken out a lot of blood, (more than I had expected they would) Anyway, I’ve completely recovered, and you can’t even see the spot under my elbow.
I saw my dad after awhile which was very nice. I’m back now and have been doing nothing very useful today.
I am using a notebook from my Grandma (pictured) in which I will recount my trip. Even though I took a journal with me I never ended up writing in it about my trip while I was there.
