It’s the beginning of finals week and I am proud to say that I am almost done with my sophomore year. I have to hand in a final research paper for my Intercultural Communications class and I am finished. I really lucked out on the paper too, the assignment was to write about a different culture but because I recently went on a mission trip to Belize I wrote about all of the things I experienced. My next few days of class should be easy because tomorrow is the last day for them! I will be viewing my final project for Television Production (a horror film written by me) and I am excited to see what the other groups came up with.
This past week I started and finished the Typhoid vaccine. I took it in pill form because I do not like shots and it made me really sick. I was dizzy randomly and my stomach hurt on and off all week. It was not fun at all, I am glad it is over.
Today I started the anti malaria medication so far I haven’t had a bad experience with it. I have to take this pill a week before I go, and once a week for every week I am in Haiti (which will only be a week) and then for four weeks after I get back. I just hope I don’t forget…
I am procrastinating on packing for the trip, I am a accessory queen so not being able to bring a lot of clothes has me side tracked. I am a bad packer, I over pack or don’t pack everything I need. I do have a few things packed though like my camping mat and shoes. Its a start if nothing else.
I have been trying to keep up with Haiti in the news, The Associated Press released an article about a todays mild tremor that happened. AHhhh…that kind of freaks me out. I understand the rainy season has started and that means mosquitoes which = malaria. I am trying to find good news about Haiti but it seems that only the worst of it is sticking to my mind..No matter how many pictures or stories I read i just can not seem to wrap my mind around the state Haiti is in.
I will be going home this weekend to start moving home for the summer, which doesn’t feel close at all. I have to say it is not something I am looking forward too. I will be unemployed and most of my high school friends will be staying in their college towns for the summer, so it looks like I will have a lot of me time. Which will be okay because I can read a bunch and work on some of my writing. But the novelty of that will wear off in a month or so and that means I am going to have to get creative.
I suppose thats all I have to share for now.
