My birthday has been wonderful and eventful. My friend Kristi came and some funny things happened. So she dropped the carton of eggs, breaking 10 of the 12 eggs, she spilled half of the ice cream, she spilled wine on my chair, and then she set a small fire in y kitchen by accident while making a s'mores pie. Luckily, nothing too bad happened and the stains came out, so it was something we could laugh about. She said things like this happen to her all the time and that I'd be scared to invite her back. I'd definitely invite her back. We had such a fun time. She did my nails, they're zebra print now. We saw two movies, too.
My lab mates threw me a surprise party, too. It was so great, I didn't expect that at all. My brother left me the nicest message on facebook for my birthday! He said, "I just want to say happy birthday to the most beautiful and amazing sister in the world!!! You have done so much for me and you are definitely my hero I look up to you. You are my role model and I strive to be more like you. You are perfect in my eyes and I am so proud of you. I love you and happy birthday!!!!" That brought tears to my eyes. I also talked to my family on a video call today. In addition to that, my parents got me an ipad mini for my birthday!
Health wise I'm doing relatively okay. I do still have a fever that's going between 102 and 103, and I do still have pretty bad stomach pain, but all of the excitement pretty much cancels out some of the crumminess. All in all, I'm glad to have made it through this past year. Though there were times that I didn't think I would, and times that I didn't even want to, I'm glad I did.
