  1. Needless to say, it's been a rough week...

    by , 01-09-2011 at 11:33 AM (What's happening?)
    Well, the pain around my left shoulder has spread throughout my entire left side of my back and it now hurts to breath deeply. I am a little freaked out, as I have never experienced pain in my back like this, but after doing a little bit of online research, I think it may be related to the head/chest cold I had during the week and I will probably have to go into the doctor this week. I think it may be related to the lining around my lungs (this is a very ignorant guess as I have no medical training! ...

  4. Bummed out...

    by , 01-08-2011 at 08:26 PM (What's happening?)

It would have offered me a healthy dose of responsibility, I would get to use my great experience and skills to work on projects, and I would actually get to go into an office Mon-Friday and see other people. I am honestly, pretty ...
