I'm having a lot of bone pain in my pelvis and hips today and getting these weird sharp headaches that last for like 5 seconds on the left side of my head. My right eardrum was like...vibrating, too, and it was very uncomfortable. I had a little bit of tea and a cracker today, so that's a lot of progress! I didn't even throw it up. Maybe tomorrow, a piece of toast, who knows? I'm feeling so exhausted, I can hardly function. And my mom called me at like 10:30 last night when I was just...about...to fall...to sleep. Darnit! I usually go to sleep later, though, so she didn't know. I called the hospital about my bill to ask for a student application for charity form. I can apply for them to forgive my bill. If that doesn't work, then I can be on the sliding scale since I have no income, and only have to pay like 35% of the bill or something. I got tutored in pharmacology today, and it went really well. Since some of my classmates are tutors, they get paid for helping me study, and it's free for me. So that means it's a win-win for both of us! I got into a study group to do practice questions later on this week, too. I got some of my textbooks I ordered in the mail, too, so I got excited in the nerdiest of ways.
There was a shooting at an elementary school here in Atlanta. With an AK-47. Why can people even get those? What are they using them for? I don't understand why anyone would shoot up a school, but especially an elementary school. It was a grown man, too...not a kid who brought their parents gun to school to like show their friends or something. There are some truly sick people out there. He told them to call some TV station. Did he do this just to get on TV? He's been arrested now. Anyways, rant over. I'm gonna finish watching So You Think You Can Dance.
