I had a horrible sore throat on Thursday and felt extremely feverish so I missed work on Friday. My tonsils got swollen and had horrible things on them. I’ve always debated getting rid of my tonsils because they always get infected but I think by a certain age I may not be able to get them removed, I will ask my doctor. I couldn’t move on Friday so I didn’t write an entry. Maybe I was so stressed out that it finally got to me, who knows. They said that stress makes people sick. I slept all day and could barely walk but I decided to get out at 4PM finally after I got pretty drugged up with advil. I have upgraded to various other drugs by now. However the Tylenol Cold multi-symptom is way too crazy so I am only going to take it at night. I also bought some new daily women vitamins so hopefully I wont ever get sick again!
Anyway, my bf Alex took me, his very drugged up girlfriend, to Boston for his friend’s graduation on Sunday. We left the afternoon before. Boston looks as pretty like I last saw it. I lived there with Alex for 3 months and some weeks in between for holidays when we first started our relationship. It was just nice to get out of NYC for abit. However, Boston reminds me of the suburbs sometimes and I always thought it wasn’t the place I would like to live in :-). I remembered how disappointed I was when I was told that the ‘T’ stops running after a certain time. The good thing though – there’s really clean air and trees!
His friend was happy to see us, even if we were barely there 10 minutes after the ceremony. Who really listens to graduation speeches anyway? The student speaker was boring and the keynote speaker was giving an environmental speech that took almost 15 minutes(maybe?) to an audience where very few spoke English. He was a very established man however. Sometimes we need funny people to give graduation speeches… hehe. Bill Clinton spoke the main graduation for my school (he’s always an interesting character even spoke about campaigning for his wife before all this). Speaking of campaigning, I am reading The Audacity of Hope by Barack Obama, finally after I told Johanna I would have gotten it to read. She said it was good. I will get the other book Dreams of my Father after I read my pile of books.
Anyway, I am up again trying to complete some work. Good Night, I’m going to take some tylenol. I don’t want to be very sick tomorrow.
