I had all these grand ideas laid out for my last week of break, my time alone at my aunts house, the last few days before I started working full time at my placements this semester. And then I woke up last Monday with the sick.
A horrible, achy, fever-y, my head is stuffed to the brim and I'm coughing up y lings kind of sick. So my plans for mornings in the kitchen testing recipes, afternoons organizing my massive portfolio for school, and evenings on the couch with the puppy turned into days on the the couch with the puppy.
You read that right when I said every episode, have I mentioned before that I have an obsessive personality?
We did make it out of the house for a few nice walks but then the crazy snow hit and the only time she or I spent outside was shoveling the driveway.
I felt well enough to celebrate New Years Eve with the BF featuring a "fancy" dinner of steak, broccoli, and Parmesan garlic potatoes. We stayed in to watch the countdown and spent half the night up talking.
We also managed to finally go see the Hobbit which was much better than I expected given how little of the actual book is left for that movie. (Sorry my nerd is showing!)
At the end of the week I was looking forward to starting my full time school placement today... except not because Chicago has temperatures in the negative double digits. I don't even get to start tomorrow because my school is staying closed and extra day to be safe.
So the end of my break has been quite uneventful, and I've gotten a few extra days of break on top of it. I'm hoping to be a little more organized and productive with my life this week, though my little brother did start watching the BBC Sherlock so I'm sure I'll be doing that with him tomorrow (see it's really all his fault).
At the end of the day life goes on, even if it isn't the most "blog-worthy" right?
Anyone else have an obsessive personality when it comes to new things? Not that I need another fandom to join... but if I was looking, anyone have suggestions :)
