Running Track:

1 mi run, 1 mi walk

Drill Team Show:

1 hour of complete craziness

 

Guess who is still sick! ME! I have this awful chest cold going on. I sound like a smoker. Sexy, I know.

So that’s why I haven’t gotten in the miles this week. I seriously can’t breathe at all. And I have a 16mi run scheduled for this weekend. I might die!

This week our school hosted 16 French boys. And so since they leave on Saturday, the Drill Team decided to perform our Spring Show for them, which showcases all of our dances that we’ve performed over the year into an hour of nonstop dancing.

I don’t know if it’s from being sick and exhausted or what… but holy frijole I sucked. Dances I knew perfectly two weeks ago I couldn’t remember to save my life. So awful.

But here is a picture of the team with the boys!

The boys speak in French All. The. Time. It's quite irritating. They're like those Asian ladies in nail salons. You just know that they are talking about you.

A few hours ago, I went to the doctor for a check-up and to see if I am sick sick (which I doubt I am). Well they needed to draw blood on me to check my hemoglobin and white blood cell count. There’s this new guy nurse there, who didn’t speak much English by the way, who was supposed to draw on me. I showed him my best vein, which is in my right arm, and so he gave it a stab, dug around, and nada. Moved to my left arm. Stabbed, moved it around, and zilch. So he went to go get another nurse whom stabbed a vein on the top of my hand (HOLY MOLY THAT HURT), dug around, and still couldn’t get anything. So I showed her my right arm again, she put a needle in my vein, and BAM. Magic. 

Now I am bruised up and my hand hurts when I type. Joy.
