Congrats Tim 8) Can we call you Timorous? :D Sorry, that just popped into my head.
When i read this I thought you said "Timosaurus" and I was thought you were implying I was old, slow and over weight :lol:

:? Ok, well I am all of those things ... and a carnivore :roll:
:heehee Hey, that's a great name! How's things, Timosaurus? Been doing well, Timosaurus?

I don't know, honestly, I have these days where every emotion is ten times as intense, don't know why. And I'm so emotional to begin with. It's pretty draining. Been sleeping like crazy.

The reason I didn't answer you about school is that I still don't know.... thinking maybe finish off next year and get a job, take a year or two off, then if I still feel like it go to grad school. I'm going to the advisor tomorrow if I can drag myself out of bed to ask about the honors program. Thinking of skipping class. But I know I won't.

Anyways, thanks for caring! Image

OKAY GUYS....SweetPea needs us to rally around her because she's emotionally inundated with a HUGE decision in her life.

On the one hand...she's come so far and being a go getter and over-achiever, wants desperately to go onto Grad school next year......

ON THE OTHER HAND.....

She feels rushed to grow up....she can do the classes (succeed) anyway, but feels overwhelmed to be in a position that her mind isn't yet ready for.....

SO....here's Mama Holly's.....advice to her.....rushing into anything is never a positive thingy.....and, she's young enough, that waiting to go onto Grad School is no biggy because she loves school, however....my 3 cents says to take a break, enjoy her youth and freedom and go for Grad school when it doesn't feel like a burden.

Now, for those who disagree, I COULD BE 1,000 PERCENT WRONG and am sure there's thingy's I'm not thinking about, but whichever and whatever you think....will help her because we all mean well and are showing our support.

Becky, it's pretty normal for a person's temp to fluctuate during the day. Some illnesses even have a fever spiking at a certain time of day as one of their symptoms. Hope you can kick this thing, soon. :(

Ivy, what all tests did they do on you when you went to the doctor. It almost sounds like your hormones or neurotransmitters might be a little out of whack. And are you taking a Vitamin D? Almost everyone is low on it and it's difficult to get too much, so it's a good idea to go ahead and take one every morning (it should give you energy--so don't take it before bed).

Will be praying for wisdom about school.

I'm sure I'll get it, but it is frustrating to keep dealing with these "We don't have the papers" - "Oh, we sent the papers last week" delays.

I hope this doesn't come across as stupid or ungrateful, but I just logged on and realized as of today, I'm no long a 500 member. It surprised me because a year ago an anonymous sweetheart sponsored me for a month of Gold membership.

Then in Feb. I was surprised once again that some sweet soul gave me a 500 membership. I will have the money to buy a gold membership, and I was fortunate enough to pay the gift forward which made me feel great inside. So why am I sad that my year of sponsorship is over?

I feel silly that I want to cry, I think it might be because I was on the boards for such a short time (2 weeks or so) before the challenge became a paid privilege. And in that short time there were at least 3 different people who thought I was special and worthy of a sponsorship.

That so blows my mind. How can a virtual stranger think I'm special and worthy? Although I have some sneaky suspicions who has sponsored me, I'm not sure, if it's any of the people I think it is, then I'm not the special one it's my sponsor who is so special and generous.

Any of you dear friends could fall into that category quite easily.You all are so caring, thoughtful, wonderful, and empathetic. I'm so blessed and forever grateful to my mysterious endower; for of not for your generosity, I WOuld have moved on and looked for another site or more likely given up on writing and most likely on myself.

So again, why am I sitting here with tears in my eyes and a lump in my stomach? Is it because I'm an ungrateful brat who longs for a pat on the head? I wonder...

Don't even think that for a second, Shanna Banana. And stop believing you're not special!! Don't you trust our judgment?

I love you times a million :hugs2 :hugs2 :hugs2 :hugs2 :hugs2 :hugs2 :hugs2

Thanks for all the prayers, folks. No, not taking Vitamin D. I can't remember what all the tests were, but I'd love to know if it's hormones because these mood swings are killing me. :roll:

That's interesting you would bring up vitamin D Amy. I was just hearing some news report about how Washington and Oregon particularly are going through a vitamin d crisis. They say everyone there should be taking supplements, because a deficiency can cause depression, chronic pain, osteoporosis, kidney failure, breast cancer, diabetes, colds and vampirism.

Ironically I have to make a conscious effort to get sun time here, although its really sunny a lot- its also ridiculously hot and during the hot season you dont exactly want to stand out in the sun to get a vitamin d boost.
