I went to a wedding

Tuesday, July 24th, 2012

I went to the wedding of my good friends Chris Gilmer and Megan Marsh last weekend! I posted pictures over on Google+, so check me out there if you wanna see.

I drove up to Sacramento for the event by myself, because Megan had to stay home to study. Today is Day One of the California State Bar Exam! Three grueling days of testing: today, tomorrow, and Thursday. They really don’t want any more lawyers here in California, but we’re going to convince them otherwise!

Did I mention I had pneumonia?

Tuesday, July 17th, 2012

A couple weeks ago, I came down with bacterial pneumonia, and let me just say that I don’t recommend the experience. It started Friday morning (the 22nd) when I felt like crap, but went to work anyways hoping to shake it off. That didn’t happen, so I left a little early and took it easy at home the rest of the evening. I had a mild fever of approx 99-point-something. The next day I felt worse and my fever reached 103.3, so then it was hospital time! Yay! You know how much I love sitting around waiting in a hospital, not knowing what’s wrong. I had a good bout with anxiety while waiting for results, but after a chest x-ray and about an hour (it felt like days), they told me I had bacterial pneumonia. I literally replied, “Pneumonia? People still get that?” Still, I felt much better, cuz now at least I knew what was wrong with me and it was totally treatable with antibiotics and heavy-duty ibuprofen.

The next couple days sucked and I just moped around feeling miserable, but my fever broke Monday evening and I felt much better after that. I took the rest of the week off and watched a lot of movies and played a lot of video games. By the second weekend (the 30th or so), I was starting to get on Megs’ nerves with my cabin fever. We were both happy for me to go back to work on Monday the 2nd.

The only bright side of the experience was the nice messages I got from friends and family. Also, dad got me a balloon:Get Well Soon Balloon

It’s still hot

Thursday, July 12th, 2012

It’s still hot out, but that’s too be expected since it’s been 11 months since my last post and now it’s a new summer. Hot and humid, my least favorite “hot”.

Megs is taking the Bar exam again in a couple weeks. Fun times. Tomorrow after work, I’m gonna go see A Prairie Home Companion at the Hollywood Bowl with Jacques and Hanh. Should be fun. Saturday I’m planning to go on a Downtown Disney pub crawl with some friends, followed by an unrelated party in the evening, followed by (maybe) a inverse drag show at night. Inverse, in that women will be dressed as men, I think. Never been to one before, but a friend’s performing.

Sunday Megs and I are going to go down to Dad & Kim’s place in Irvine to celebrate Kim’s birthday.

Does anyone read this anymore?
