gum surgery and nail polish.



I have gum surgery in an hour so I had to take this pill to help my body relax or something and now I'm starting to feel tired and my limbs don't move as fast and I'm struggling to type.  But I don't know if I can attribute that entirely to the meds.

Speaking of meds, I have to take a pill every six hours, which includes midnight and 6 am.  I just want to say that waking up twice during the night (because yes, I am definitely in bed before midnight and it's amazing) is rough.  Plus, it's not like I just pop the pill.  I also have to eat something.  So last night I put some bread in a ziploc bag and then sat up and ate it when I took my pill.  I just want to say that eating bread in my bed in the dark is just a weird thing.  Moving on...

So I have this surgery in an hour and I'm sure it will go over fine but I do hope I fall asleep because they're going to be cutting up my gums and the roof of my mouth and then I'm going to have to wear this weird retainer thing because there will be stitches and flopping skin and stuff and maybe I should have warned you that this paragraph was going to be gross?

I don't know where this post is going but I just want to share two more things.  I wrote a letter to my sister today who has been in the MTC for a week now.  I keep thinking about texting her but then I remember I can't because she's a missionary.  I even thought about texting her to ask about how life at the MTC is going.  That was a low point.  Anyway, I wrote her this letter and as I was rereading it after I sent it, I was like, wow.  This is complete nonsense and yet these are the most important things that have happened to me lately.  For example, please read this paragraph that is legitimately in a letter I wrote to my sister:


"So, I went Christmas shopping the other day. Anne had told me about this gold glitter nail polish for three bucks and I was like I WANT THAT.  So anyway, I was supposed to be Christmas shopping, but I was on the hunt for that nail polish, dang it.  So I searched and searched and looked high and low for at least two minutes (dedication, baby!), but I couldn’t find it.  And I was sad.  Very sad.  Because I mean, how is a girl supposed to live without her gold glitter nails?  It’s just absurd!  But if it’s any consolation, I found three other colors instead.  And they’re all so pretty!  You see, the thing is, I really like having my nails painted.  And not just my toenails, but my fingernails as well.  And for the past six months, I’ve really been slacking.  School was killing me and I just didn’t have time.  I mean, even my toenails are looking pathetic.  I think I painted them once this semester.  So anyway, what I’m trying to say is that I got three colors: mint, a pinkish (I was trying to find salmon, but the pink was so pretty!), and a gray.  I know gray might sound weird, but it’s pretty hip and “in” right now and I really like it because you know me, always trying to be a hipster and stuff.  I painted my fingernails gray last night and then I showed mom last night when she got home from her GNO (Girls Night Out!) and I’m pretty sure she thinks I’m emo now.  But whate’er, I do what I want.  Also, look.  I just wrote a huge paragraph about nail polish.  So that’s good."

What am I? A five year old?  Gosh, that's just embarrassing.  Anyway, in other news I wanted to show you guys this link because I think it's funny


Also, after you're done looking at that, spend a little more time thinking about #20 and watch this because it's only the best thing I've ever seen.


That's all guys.  I 'm getting really tired and I don't know if it's really the meds or if I'm just imagining things.  Probably the second one. Okay, bye.

I imagined what you look like trying to eat bread half asleep. I laughed really loud.
