I want my bed. I want to sleep and just feel pathetic by myself.
But no. Instead I have school. I feel bad for my teacher because here I am sitting right in front of her flapping my hands, arms and using over the top facial expressions but not speaking.
I lost my voice this morning. I literally croaked good morning to my dad and that was it.
I’ve been like this since Thursday night. I missed school on Friday because I didn’t want to make everyone else sick but now I have to be here. In my classes you can’t miss too much or you will fall so far behind that it’s nearly impossible to catch up. Plus I happen to have a business computer teacher who not only would make it his mission to tease me the next time I step foot into class that my boyfriend kept me up all night (I would just do my best arm flailing at him in response); he would also decide not to take pity on me if I missed any assignments over the weekend (which I have this feeling I did).
I slept a lot this weekend. During the day I slept and then I spent a good hour or so coughing and drinking a ton of juice before I could even fall asleep. Last night I listened to Marianas Trench’s entire Master Piece Theatre album because it really helped me relax before I fell asleep. I can always listen to their music on repeat and never get bored. Did you know they are from Vancouver, Canada?
Lets see…what else about my weekend was interesting?
Oh, here in Winnipeg the Irish Association of Manitoba has their headquarters and yesterday was the AGM (Annual General Meeting) which I obviously could not attend. My boyfriend, the actual leprechaun between the two of us, went and represented me as I am working on reestablishing, cataloguing, and essentially bringing the library back to life.
Even though I am not Irish I am working really hard to bring back this library to life.
My main reason for doing so is because seeing all these beautiful books not being used and feeling outraged when members of the IAM tell me that people are just going in there and taking books with the intent to not return them. My second reason is that after asking a number of members in the club, some who are getting older and others who have small families, I found that many wanted the library running again because it will be keeping a strong hold on their heritage and because it will be a way for the next generation to learn about where they have come from.
I just hope I can do it justice.
My boyfriend was nominated to the Board of Directors (congrats!) which is awesome! I know he takes a great deal of pride being Irish. Its going to be fun seeing him working with the others on the Board and hopefully they can make the IAM even better. Not going to lie but it also helps because I can go straight to him if I need anything for the library or need to know where I stand on certain issues that include the library.
Right now though I just feel plain sick and not particularly interested in doing much besides sleeping.
