to chicago?

I have loads of school work to do before the spring semester is done and out. I'm starting to feel the raising panic in my head. I really should get to work, but here we are again, waiting for the inspiration, which is not going to show any signs any time soon. May is going to be hell. Exams, papers to do, entrance exam (yes, I'm hoping to get my major changed), and my mom needs help organizing a graduation party for my little sister. And I need to start working already in May. Now that I wrote all this down I started feeling even worse.

Anyway, the thing motivating me is the trip to Chicago which is hopefully going to happen this summer.

Need to get back to work.

i can feel it

Spring is finally here! At least yesterday and today. It's funny how much more energy you get from the sun. It makes you happy to see snow melting and hear birds singing.
School is busier and the dates for final exams are getting closer. I should spend a lot of time doing school work,
reading and writing papers not to miss due dates..

My very good friend Teresa is going back to Chicago for the summer, so I'm also planning to go there. I'm not sure how to make all the money I need for the trip, but I'll figure it out.

I've also found the joy of sports. During my Easter vacation I'm going to ski. Again.

Be happy everyone.

tooth and sami

This morning I went to get my allergy shots, but because of the infection and antibiotics the nurse refused to do the treatment. I told her how I'm scared to get my wisdom tooth pulled out and she told me to go see the dentist right away and ask about premedication possibilities. I did, and the dentist was clearly amused that I was so upset because of the upcoming procedure. So, his suggestion was that I'd go there a little later (12.50) and he would pull it out the same day.
I went home, was nervous, did laundry and decided to make Sami some breakfast and take it to bed for him. Good idea. Well.. He wasn't able to get up. He had chest pain. For about 20 minutes he had this weird pain and then he told me that he feels really sick. I jumped on the bed, lifted his legs up trying to get some blood to his brain. He fainted. I called ambulance. I was in panic, but I think I did pretty well. I was crying the whole time (I know, that's wrong..), but the help arrived soon, and then I was a little embarrassed with my read face and swollen eyes.. but still in shock. They did all kinds of tests and Sami was feeling better. Then they told us to go to the hospital, they didn't take Sami because he's feeling ok and not needing immediate help. The doctor came to see him, and after EKG-tests and stuff like that he (mr. doctor) said that Sami's heart is fine. It's his spine that has some problems. Hmm...
Well after that we still had 30 minutes till my appointment at the dentist. We went there a little early and he (mr. dentist) was ready to do the operation a little early too, so I had no time for further panicking. It didn't hurt at all! Now I have a new appointment on April 19, that's when he's going to pull all the rest of them out. And the day before that I can go and get some Diapam to make me more relaxed. Haha. :)

What a day.

tooth ache

I missed school again. Last nights pain was pure horror. I ended up crying like a baby, painkillers didn't work nor did the antibiotics. (I also have an infection, because the skin is damaged. Gross, I know.) It hurts.

wisdom teeth

I'm terrified. I've had this weird headache since Sunday, and been waiting for the flu. Now for two days I've had pain in my cheek and chin bones as well. Today I went to a dentist (after I realized I wasn't able to eat anymore because of the pain) saying I'm afraid I have cavities (I don't actually know what the pain is like, because I've never had one. Very proud of my teeth.) and he took a look in my mouth. "Well this is an easy diagnose -" he says "your wisdom teeth are growing to a wrong place, so they brake the skin while you talk/chew. We need to take them all out." Help.
I had my last dental check one and a half years ago and the dentist told me that my teeth were good and I didn't have to worry about those four last ones... Right.
Next Tuesday they're going to take the first one out. Just the thought of it is freaking me out. Does it hurt? I mean it must, but how much?
Poor Sami, I'm already complaining and whining all the time.. It must be bad after the procedure.

Here's my dog, Viivi. I don't understand how some people say German Shepherds are scary. :) Posted by Hello

vacation's done

Vacation was a little different from what was expected. Everybody got sick. First on Sunday one of my sisters, then on Wednesday my brother. On Thursday all my siblings and I went to a blood test. My brother threw up. After that we went to donate blood, one of my sisters threw up there. And the other fainted at the H&M store a little later. Next night my youngest sister couldn't breathe and we took her to the hospital. Apparently she now has asthma. That night she threw up, and got a high fever. Next day she had a bad headache and high fever.
Now I'm waiting to get sick. And Sami too.

I went skiing. Twice. I liked it.
