First off, I want to share my pre-china flight experience.
The night before my scheduled departure, I caught a nasty fever. I had a terrible lump in my throat and a migraine that kept me on the bed for hours. My temperature read 38 degrees and kept rising as the night went on. I had chills and sweats and all that fever related drama. I kept hoping to get better ASAP, not only because of the would-be-wasted-plane ticket, but also because I didn’t want to be left alone while I was feeling incredibly horrible.
Unfortunately, the next morning, I woke up feeling worse. My temperature slowly climbed up the 39 mark and my brain felt like someone was inside churning it. My skin also started to feel really sensitive and bruised. My joints started to hurt and I couldn’t bare to swallow because the lump in my throat had enlarged. So, we decided that I would stay behind and get better. That traveling would only lead me to be detained for quarantine, plus some drama that we didn’t need.
My mom made me some noodle soup to get some food in my stomach for breakfast and to prep my system for antibiotics. I haggardly grabbed my blanket and wore it around my shoulders, sat infront of the TV, put on the first movie on the media gate, 17 again, and had my noodle soup. Either there was something in that soup, or something about Zac Efron, because after that set of activities, I was up and running.
We get to the airport, im fine. We get to China, im fine. We get to the hotel, and I’m back to 39.
Soooooo dear readers, heres where I thank you. I spent most of my trip in the hotel, recovering. The only things that kept me sane were the unbanned websites that I could access, and the utterly touching responses people sent me through email and comment for my blogaversary. SUPER THANKS to everyone for the love!!! I was REALLY REALLY TOUCHED! I was actually expecting one-liner answers/comments for my blogaversary contest (i.e. I read TT because its AWE*freakin*SOME ) but wow! Thanks a lot guys! I didn’t know I could do all those things you said I did, and I’m so happy that I have such a positive impact on people I never knew I could inspire people I don’t even know just by doing what I love! I will definitely try to respond to everyone who posted a comment below (hopefully, ill have enough time to do it! Just be patient with me!)
You have to know too, though, that half the reason why I keep this blog going is because I’m inspired by the people who read it! The fact that people are interested in me make me want to keep my life interesting! To do that, I keep trying to go for the things I dream about, and I guess the thank you goes out to you! so THANK YOU ALL! so much!
As I said in my previous post, contest runs until 12 midnight tonight! Soooo watch out for tomorrows post announcing the winner!
I have another story, but ill save that for later!
