It's all about perspective.

I don't remember the last time I was this excited to go to school on a Monday.

But when you miss an extra unexpected week because you had to sit in the hospital, it kinda makes you appreciate things that I used to dread.

I definitely don't have my stamina back yet, though.  My legs were very weak and dragging all day, but luckily I made it out okay.

My professors were all very sweet.  I called Dr. Thornton last Tuesday to tell him I wouldn't be in for my registration appointment (for obvious reasons), and he called Student Life, and they sent out an email to everyone explaining that I was in the hospital and was not just playing hooky. (Well, at least that week I wasn't.)  They were all very concerned about me, which helped me put any of the stresses I had about classes to ease.

Dr. Steegar let me switch the novel that I was going to do for my second book report out for a collection of short stories because I told him I just wasn't going to have the time to get a novel + book report, a paper, and two take home tests done after missing two full weeks of work time.  So hooray, that's way more manageable.

I also got to have dinner with my friend Alex (the guy from the debate) which was really nice.  I originally thought we were just getting together to talk politics, and we ended up talking about God and faith, and I told him about getting baptized, and all sorts of cool stuff.  It was really surprising, and really neat.  I always enjoy getting to know people on a more personal level.

And now I'm going to sleep because I got less than 6 hours of sleep last night (yes, even after taking Percocet and Phenergan) and I'm exhausted.  Good night, world.
