Friday started off very tepidly. Despite my health going downhill once again (I think that's the third time since I've moved here, would probably be easier to count the times when I'm NOT sick), I decided to spend three hours at the gym the night before. You know how some people go to the gym to get their mind off a breakup or a bad day? I went to get my mind off of mourning the death of my laptop and looming days of computer withdrawal ahead. Such a first world problem and if I wasn't sick I probably wouldn't mind so much because the weather was warming up and I could explore the city. But no, I had to be sick and, therefore, confined myself to my apartment all Friday morning in hopes of being well enough to go out that night for my friend Jackie's birthday. My sick regiment (which I've mastered at this point) consists of rest, a hot shower, Airborne, lots and lots of pho, chicken noodle soup, lots and lots of water and tea, and absolutely no leaving the apartment. Just add some old Office and Law & Order reruns and that describes my Friday morning. My strict sick regiment confinement was worth it though to be well enough to hang out with these two lovely ladies for the night.

Once again, Sunday was my day of rest..with more documentaries! My Easter consisted of me watching Vegucated (it really made me want to try to go vegan), Craigslist Joe (uplifting film showing you the goodness and generosity of people), First Position (so beautiful and inspiring, I almost teared up watching some of the dances), Cave of Forgotten Dreams (*bows before Werner Herzog*), The Invisible War (just incredible - I got so ANGRY watching this at the injustice and the way these women were treated), and The Imposter (mind boggling and kinda creepy). This is literally all I did today..and eat.
