*cough cough* almost forgot

Gosh darn it, this forgetting to blog is getting to be a habit, and I don't like it. I was almost asleep before I remembered this time.
It's not even like anything particularly interesting happened today that I just had to tell you about. I went to class, the janitor's are still on strike, I came home, the bus ride took forever.
In new news, I think I'm getting sick. For the first time since I've been in Egypt, I actually feel fairly unwell. I hope whatever it is goes away soon, but I'm not going to get my hopes up, because it probably won't. All I ask is that I don't have bronchitis. Or strep throat. Or the flu. Just a cold, please. That's all I am prepared to handle.
Well, today is Halloween, and what a spectacularly uninteresting Halloween it was, too. I didn't dress up, I didn't get or give any candy, and I haven't heard a single trick-or-treat. I don't know if I like it or not, but it certainly is strange.
And because today is Halloween, it's a very important day for two reasons. One, it's my grandfather's birthday, and I got to talk to him on Skype today for the first time ever, since I haven't seen him since August (duh). The internet connection on my cousin's iPhone wasn't very good, and neither is Grandpa's hearing, but I think he heard my say happy birthday at least one of the times I shouted it at my computer. The other reason today being Halloween is important, is because that means that tomorrow is November. I've been dreading/looking forward to November for a very long time. November means NaNoWriMo, which I am planning to drive myself insane with again this year. And it starts tomorrow. I'll be writing at least 1,667 words a day to meet the goal of a 50,000 word novel by the end of the month. I hope my blogging won't suffer too much, but that seems like a definite possibility. Either blogging or homework might have to get tossed out the window to make room for NaNo. Which to choose, which to choose?
Also, have I mentioned the trip to Jordan that I was planning to make over the Eid break in the middle of November? Yes, no? Well, it doesn't matter now, because not enough people signed up, and the trip has been cancelled. Yay, now I have more time for homework. And blogging. And NaNo.

  1. Hi Kiddo, Your grandfather did hear you. It was great that Alison had a 4G phone and could Skype you. I just added a camera to Aunt Deb's phone so next time you can see and hear. Good luck with NaNo, homework and blog. Geat well, see the dispensary, mind over matter. Rest fluids etc. PS your sister is sick too. Love Dad
