Item of Importance the First concerns olives. Olives are one of those foods I think I don\’t like, though I\’m not sure I\’ve actually tried them before. So we were at the Bonefish Grill on Wednesday and the salad had black olives in it and I thought, \”Swell! Here is my chance!\” I really want to like olives, you see. As much as I like food, I\’m actually pretty picky about a lot of things, but I wish I weren\’t. So I enthusiastically tried the olive! And I\’m sorry to say it was disgusting. It tasted all… alcoholic and fermenty. Kind of like that apple pie we had on Maureen\’s birthday one year where the apples had started to ferment except I still kind of liked it because hello, pie! But olives? Not good. (Black olives, at least.) What a shame.
The next item is this stupid essay I have to write. Apparently even when I\’m not in school and have NOTHING TO DO I am still a procrastinator. Not that that\’s surprising. I\’m applying for a couple of cancer scholarships and both require an essay (though obviously am hoping to get by with the same one for both). I just can\’t write about myself. Everything sounds stupid. Can\’t I write about someone else? I\’m good at research! And notecards! I\’ve had a month to do it and only just wrote the first few sentences yesterday. Hate it. Gotta do it this weekend though. Hmph.
Item the Third: I saw my doctor today. She says everything is GOOD! (Oops, I wrote \”FOOD\” at first. Well, that doesn\’t mean anything. The \”g\” and \”f\” keys are right next to each other. Easy mistake. Ahem. Where was I?) My tests were good, my blood counts are good, and … that is good! I can make an appointment to get my port taken out (ooh, more surgery, what fun) and get my.. braces back on. How depressing. 3 and a half years weren\’t enough. Hate orthodontistry. Hmmm anyway. Right. Everything is good! She was also asking if I needed her to write any letters to UVA for special requirements… like a dorm on the first floor. I never even thought about that. Probably a good idea though as stairs and I are not on good terms at the moment. (Especially today. Apparently rain = pain. :/) Also maybe I can get AC. Yes I knew good things would come of this. ;)
P.S. Happy Earth Day!
