3.5.13

Today, I was grateful…

- that the surgeon has high hopes
- for my hot pink cast/wrappings
- for episodes of L&O and chicken noodle soup
- for meeting a nurse with POTS
- that another nurse, who hadn’t heard of POTS, asked me questions and was so interested that she was going to research it herself
- that even though my POTS caused some problems, it was not my time to go.

I did these things well:

- taught recitation before heading to the hospital
- refrained from punching out the anesthesiologist who not only had no idea what POTS was (not surprising) but who also had no idea what two of my medications were despite how common they are. (And I put my life in his hands?)
- notified my teacher of my absence tomorrow.

discouraged

I’ve reached out to two people this week for help and neither has even had the courtesy to respond. It took more than I even care to talk to about to get me to call in the first place and I’m discouraged beyond their lack of respect and professional courtesy.

Given their chosen profession, I find this even more shocking. There are people who are in far more desperate situations than I am who are calling from the brink hoping one of these people will be able to help and save them.

I can’t help but wonder: What happens to them? What happens when you reach out for help and find no one is there?

83.

83. The Dark Knight Rises. I liked this the least of the series. It had nice moments, but overall I’ll pass. The villain this time was awful. Dull, predictable, over dramatic to the point of just being ridiculous. Every time I heard him speak I laughed. The last ten minutes were the best part of the whole thing.

2.22.13

Today, I was grateful…

- for dinner out with my mom and Z. Whether you’re Catholic or not, there’s nothing like a Fish Fry in Buffalo during Lent.
- dino jokes!
- watching one of my students progress
- for a surprise in the mail from a friend, on a day when I really needed it
- for an appropriately timed song on the radio

I did these things well:

- took care of a (ridiculous) matter at school. Too bad I can’t force the apology I rightly deserve.
- opened up, just a little. I hope I don’t regret it.
- stayed late to tutor

77-82

77. The Artist. A modern day silent film. Very unique and, while it dragged a bit in the middle, I enjoyed it.

78. The Hitchhiker’s Guide to the Galaxy. This was recommended to me by a friend at school. It was…interesting. Some parts were dumb, some were funny and some were visually stunning. It makes me curious what the books are like and if I’d have liked it better having read them first.

79. Went to Polar Bites. A fundraiser to support the Buffalo Zoo.

80. Ahi Tuna Nachos. One of the things I tried at Polar Bites. According to their menu, it’s seared tuna on a homemade nacho with Asian salad and wasabi vinaigrette.

81. Fig balsamic vinegar with vanilla ice cream. Interesting. I didn’t care for it with the vanilla ice cream but the vinegar itself was delicious. I would have loved it on fresh berries.

82. Home smoked bacon in crab and maple butter. Also delicious.
