Catching up

I had a really weird last day of school. I got the stomach flu. It was probably a mix of stress from finals, too much sugar and possibly partially raw sausage. So yeah, I was throwing up all day. NOT fun. So the next day I went in and finished my math final. It was really weird to go to school during summer break. I did good on it though. I got an A in the class!
I will never get used to Moscow weather. It SNOWED today. And its summer vacation. How weird is that. It snowed this morning then turned into rain. And whats even weirder is that this isn't abnormal. That is snows in the summer all the time here. One of my friends said it snowed on the 4th of July. Creepy. All I know is that I am never living this far up north again. Yeah, its pretty, but I like my seasons too much. I am ready for 80 degree weather, not 40.
I did manage to get a job though. Its not an ordinary job though. A friend of mine and I go and clean a person in our ward's house every tues. Today was our first day, and I had fun. I don't mind cleaning other people's houses (as Lora and Ian know :) ) and I was with a friend. She pays us 8 bucks an hour, which I think is really good. And for the next month or so I am doing a friends paper route while she's on vacation. Its in the older part of town, so the houses are all really interesting and all very different. And all the trees are really big and shady, so if it decides to warm up I have shade. But I am hoping to get my dad to drive me around if I pay him 50%. He already told me he would, but he doesn't know how long I'll be doing the route. I didn't know till today. So who knows how long that will last. I'm just really glad to be making money again so I can buy some books and clothes I've been wanting. And possibly a lamp to light up my very dim room.


  1. Sorry to hear you got the flu! Yuck! I absolutely hate throwing up; it's the worst thing. Glad to hear you got an "A" in your class. That takes a lot of working hard. Good luck with the jobs! Earning money is bitter-sweet because I don't enjoy the actual labor but getting to spend my own money my own way was so great! If you find a great book, let me know!

  2. Yeah, we had too much fun with the bubble wrap, packing peanuts, and pocket knives though! I LOVe PHANTOM OF THE OPERA!!!!!! it was really fun to watch it later that afternoon!
