I'm sick. two days in a row of calling off work. I feel a little better today but I woke up feeling the worst that I have felt yet. I've noticed that that's usually a good sign for me, once I get the "worst I've felt" out of the way it's pretty quick for me getting better.
Got my girl scout cookies yesterday. Rock. I miss being a girl scout some days. It was fun.
I have been dwelling on the tragedies in Japan a lot. Ry says I'm obsessing. I think that I am but I have always been horrifically fascinated by nuclear threat and devastation. It bothers me a lot, ever since I watched the movie Grave of the Fireflies. That, and I have friends who live in Japan, a few of whom live in Tokyo, who I am worried about.
Also, sometimes it's hard for people to understand tragedies of large scale in places they can't relate to (such as Haiti and the middle east). At least, I figure it is. What I mean to say is, it is for me. I don't understand the way people in the middle east think culturally (which may make me sound stupid but a: I'm sick and obviously not phrasing things right and b: maybe I am stupid, but it's my blog so there) and so it makes it hard for me to comprehend the tragedy in the way that I can with the Japanese crisis that is happening now. Also, I've never been to the middle east or to Haiti but I have been to Japan. And the Japanese may be different than we are culturally but they have a lot of similarities to us here stateside, too, and I can relate to those.
I don't know. It makes me very anxious and worried. I've been following the nuclear (and yes, I can't help myself, I always say it wrong before I say it right...nucular first and then nuclear, probably because I'm stupid) crisis obsessively.
