Well, I’m sick again. It seems like it’s just one cold after another. This must be the third if not fourth time I’ve been sick since my arrival in the U.K. And I was finally beginning to think the fresh air was doing me some good…
Maybe it’s living in a new flat, maybe the silverware in the cafeteria isn’t cleaned spotless, or maybe my body is still recovering from a month of no sleep. Whatever the case may be, it’s incredible frustrating that I can’t stay healthy for more than ten days. But no matter, I’m still trying to stay well enough to do things.
This past Saturday I attended the Kate Kennedy Club Charity Opening Ball. I had to get out of the flat and do something! And I needed a break from working this week, obviously. For dinner beforehand, we went to Forgans (the same place that I experienced my first ceilidh). I noticed a wall this time around that I hadn’t noticed before: the world wall (photo above). I wrote my name and left it on the wall, right about where Texas is:
It was a nice reminder that I really do have to make the most of my time here, even when I’m a little under the weather. I have to pretend I’m well to be well. Besides, it doesn’t do any good to be cooped up inside, anyhow.
This upcoming weekend I’ll be heading to Inverness for a program trip! Naturally, I’m trying to get better as quickly as I can before then. Orange juice, peppermint tea and naps are all my best friends this week.
In the mean time, I do need to get some reading done so I can get to sleep. Have a good night and stay as well as you can!
