Update, update, update. Is that all you people think about? Sheesh. SO… As it turns out, the thing my parents and I thought was the flu… I told some of you about that… anyway, it turns out it’s really strep throat. My temperature peaked night before last at nearly 40 degrees, so I went to the doctor yesterday and she was like “Eww!” and gave me a prescription for antibiotics. So now I’m taking medication up the wazoo and I feel like I’m a person with AIDS or something (okay, so that was reeeeeally exaggerating, but still). I’ve been trying to get back onto a normal sleeping schedule so that my body doesn’t break down when I’m thirty or something and leave me hanging, you know? During school I seem to have the weirdest sleeping hours ever… from about 4 AM to 10: 30 AM and then later in the day from 5 PM to about 8 PM. So, I get about the right number of hours, technically, but I don’t get them in the right order or pattern. And, since I’m feeling like JTHM today:

In other news, I was offered an internship with the Advertising Group, which does sales and marketing. Let me tell you, I turned it down — I discovered I am a service worker, not a sales worker, to be sure. It paid well, but the hours sucked tons (7:30 AM to 6:30 PM) and it was 60 minutes away driving in rush hour traffic both ways. I was also offered a non-paying internship at a newspaper, the Canyon News, which serves the Beverly Hills and Hollywood areas (among a few other places). I accepted that one, but couldn’t go to the orientation (which was on Tuesday) because I was sick in bed with the flu/strep throat. So I have to call them today to see what my hours are because if you want anything done right you have to do it yourself. Since the newspaper internship is part time, I have time to get a part time job (not to mention I need one). If anyone has any openings anywhere… or knows of any, please PLEASE let me know. I’ll love you forever. All right, that’s my post for now. Now I’m going to play so Typershark and then I’m off to make some calls and hopefully land a paying job!!! Whee!
