One word: Cold!
It was ridiculously cold today, although, yes I know, Natasha is farther up North and it was probably some 10 degrees colder.Â But, I do believe this is the coldest its ever been in the 3.5 years I’ve been on the mainland.Â I do like how the weather reporter put it: “Frozen Snot” Because, ya know, its normal for your nose to start running when you’re outside, then its so damn cold it just freezes.
It was an awesome game, along with awesome food (Dominos large pizza with unlimited toppings so I got the meat lovers: Pepporini, Ham, Bacon, Fajita Chicken, Sausage).Â It was a well spent 3-4 hours of watching the game, cheering on the Indianopolis Colts and just being able to relax and have fun.
Heard from Jenn in Roehampton.Â She seems to be enjoying herself, which is great.Â Sounds like an awesome place to be, especially to study abroad.Â I do envy that she has enough future foresight to plan for such a big trip, but more importantly to save the money up for it.Â I tend to just spend most of my paycheck, a habit I have to break if I know what’s good for me….
Speaking of what’s good for me, in my bioethics class today we were talking about Advanced Directives and Durable Power of Attorney, and the need for interpretation of them and of course the basic need to have your wishes written down or at the very least speak and discuss these issues with family and loved ones and those close to you. Essentially: Talk about different worst case scenarios you might find yourself in medically in which you wouldn’t be able to express your choice/autonomy and what you’d like your family members to decide for you in those cases.Â The idea is that should you ever fall into such a situation, which, hopefully you won’t, but life is unpredictable, your family will know what you would’ve wanted and there won’t be a huge dispute along the lines of the Terri Schiavo case, etc.Â I plan to do this soon, and when appropriate to go ahead and put it down in a legal document (i.e. living will, etc.) and I’d urge others to do it as well.

Yeah, these are all pretty old songs, but I just recently ‘rediscovered’ them by them being played on Scrubs (awesome show) or hearing them on the radio.
And I think that’s it, till whenever I have time again to write…
