Thanksgiving Break

Thanksgiving break was just what the doctor ordered. Not only did I get a break from the insane amount of school work, but I got over my freak sickness. After going home Tuesday afternoon, I went to see the doctor. You know something, doctors pretty much do nothing, at least this doctor. I'm thinking I could do their job, with out going to med school. I go in there thinking ok doctor, just give me some antibiotics and let me be on my way. So I finally get out of the waiting room and head back to the other room. The lady records my weight, blood pressure, pulse, and temperature. The doctor comes in about 10 minutes later and introduces himself. He asks me how I'm feeling and looks at my sheet...
'Hmm, it says here you have a fever of 100.9. What are you're symptoms?'
'Well I have an off an on fever, sore throat, head aches, and body aches.'
'Do you have any kind of rash?'
'No I don't have a rash.'
He then proceeds to examine my arm and my chest and stomach.
'No, I don't see any rash.'
Well thank you doctor. I couldn't figure that one out on my own. He then looks at my throat.
'Wow, it's red back there.'
Why yes, it is, I have a sore throat. Can you please just prescribe me some antibiotics now?
'I'm going to prescribe you some antibiotics.'
Oh really? Do you think I need some?

Wednesday I sat at home all day and did nothing. Actually I take that back...I drank two containers of juicy juice, took my antibiotics, and watched 4 movies. I began to feel much better. That doctor sure was smart prescribing me antibiotics.

Thursday was Thanksgiving obviously. I haven't seen a lot of my family in a while so it was really great to see everyone again, and actually see some new comers to the family that I haven't seen yet. The little ones definitely out number the adults I would say almost 2 to 1 now. It's crazy. Check out these two cuties. They are my twin cousins.


Friday, I paid a visit to my good friend at UK, Kris. Kris, Michael, Nel, and I went to see UK woop up on Georgia State. We then spent the night because the next day we would go hiking at Red River Gorge (an annual tradition following Thanksgiving).

This pretty much concluded my Thanksgiving break. I am now over my sickness, and ready to get back to working on hydrology, geomechanics, ethics, art, steel design, and world religions. This semester is almost over!
