First off. Thanks for all the well wishes for my mom. I will be writing more when we know more, still waiting for some test results, but so far things have gone as well as they could have... she is quickly recovering from a successful surgery. But we're not in the clear yet, so of course we are hoping for the best, but we remain prepared to tackle whatever situation arises. Forgive me, I'm still too worried to write about all of this in full detail.
In other news...
Gave another French lesson today. I know I keep saying this, but it's such a great experience, things are going so well, and I can't believe my health is holding up enough for me to do these lessons!
I think I'm going to keep giving lessons even when I'm better. Maybe give some painting lessons too if I have the time for all of that. And for some reason someone wants me to tutor their daughter in science. Hey, why not, I liked science, specially my biology class with the British teacher who always pronounced evolution as 'EVIL-ution.' I laughed every time he said that. He just made evolution sound so damn terrible, like a curse or something. It made me want to kick evolution's ass.
I can't wait to be all the way better. I'm going to go shoot some pool. I guess that has nothing to do with anything.
I've been reading "Alice in Wonderland." I've actually never read it before. It is sooooo AWESOME! I love it. Every word is perfect. Wouldn't change a thing.
Also started reading Milton's "Paradise Lost." I had a friend who always talked about that poem... and since my mind feels sharper these days, I figured why not read it. It's surprisingly readable, and quite a fascinating story, all about the fall of man, but it seems that a lot of the story is told from Satan's perspective. Satan's perspective! How can this book not be awesome?
Unfortunately, for the greater part of this illness I felt too sick to read. And I have a feeling that as I keep getting better I'm probably going to have less and less of a chance to read. In the gradual march back to health, life will takeover my life, which is a good thing! And, as wonderful as literature is, it doesn't quite replace life (obviously!)! I really want to be doing stuff, got tons of projects in the works, I think I've had enough sitting around for a lifetime... Shoot, I can't even begin to talk about all my plans. Got so many. Quite a few art projects lined up with different people. I'm excited.
But in the meanwhile, as I keep recovering, I'll be reading lots of stuff. I'm just thankful I don't have the pain like I used to, watching tv was the only thing I could manage in a sad effort to grind out those terrible days. At least I learned a lot about celebrities. Like Paris Hilton. God I love Paris!
And I like Lindsay Lohan too.
But Britney annoys me.
So, that's it for now I guess.
