School and Rest
23.06.2016 - 23.06.2016
Today I woke up feeling a bit better. I still didn’t sleep through the night, however I did sleep more than I had the night before and I woke up to my alarm. I decided I was well enough to go to school in the morning, so I got up and got ready. (To be clear got ready meaning throwing on the comfiest clothes I had, brushing my teeth, and throwing my hair into a zero style ponytail. Lol!) The walk to school took me way longer than normal, haha I was still pretty sick, but I took my time and made it eventually. (Definitely no breakfast this morning uggg…it would not have stayed down.) At school we learned about future tense verbs which was actually relatively simple!
I just sat and listened basically which was not to overexerting. At the break I took a mini nap and then in the afternoon our group finished our presentation and practiced. I then made my slow trek back home. I actually stopped and got ice cream because my throat was on fire and I thought it would help. (Ice isn’t really a thing unless you’re at a fancy restaurant.) It did help for about the first three bites, it was amazing…and then it hit my stomach…I didn’t get to finish it ) Luckily there was a key for me this morning so I was able to let myself in and nap for a while before any of the family even got home. I woke up from that nap feeling a little better (as always as afternoon hits) and I really wanted to join in on the afternoon activity, but I talked myself out of it because it was bike riding and I NEEDED to get better before my long trip home. So I just stayed in bed all afternoon alternating between sleep and reading. It felt good to my exhausted body and I think I made the right choice not joining the group for a bike ride as they all texted and told me that it was pretty difficult. My host mom let me just rest in peace most of the day but every once and a while she would come in and check on me. She made me freshly squeezed orange juice again. In between resting I slowly packed up all of my stuff. (I really didn’t buy much…so I’m wondering if it is a physics law that your clothes always grow when you try to repack them…like what?
Urrrggg, I got it eventually—although my suitcase is dangerously full lol.) I attempted to eat both lunch and dinner (both were delicious) but I didn’t get much farther than just a few bites. I felt bad for not eating much, but it just wasn’t going to happen. The shower again was a glorious part of my day for my extremely sore muscles (but I feel bad staying in there too long—another good reason to get home soon!). Tonight I will hopefully sleep a lot and be better in the morning!
Highlight of my Day: A warm soothing shower! <3
(Haha…yeah yuck…don’t make me think about it!)
