“So I barely get sick -- I think all of my friends know that. In fact, I don't think I've ever been absent since I was in grade 5. That's why I was so annoyed how I was so sick yesterday. In fact, I was studying for my Tour 102 exam Wednesday evening, cause it was going to be my exam Thursday morning -- that's me.
Anyway, I was studying for it and 3 am, I tell myself, I think I'm ready enough for the test. So I decide to go to sleep. Usually, I don't sleep before an exam. I would do this in high school. I wouldn't sleep all night because i feared that everything I studied would be flushed away by my sleep. But I figured I needed to rest, so I went to sleep.
Thirty minutes into my sleep or so I think, I can't sleep. My tummy is aching so bad. It's like my tummy was being ripped. I felt like my insides were being pulled and pushed and like stabbed by knives. I just felt terrible.
So around 4:30, I couldn't take it. An hour later, I tried sleeping on my stomach, on my side, on my back, on my front. I tried switching beds. Until I couldn't take it anymore. I go downstairs and tell Ate Let, "I can't sleep!" I'm crying. I'm in tears -- it's that painful! So she warms up some water for me for a hot water compress.
But then I still can't sleep. So I go upstairs and wake my parents up at 5 in the morning. "I can't sleep! I just want to sleep before my exams!" And apparently I'm having stomach spasms. They're so bad that I keep going to the toilet. I know overshare. But that wasn't the worst. After my mom let me drink warm water to calm my stomach down, I started barfing as in throwing up. I think I threw up a total of 6 times and it is NOT fun.
So basically I woke up and couldn't sleep anymore. So I just stayed up waiting around for my exam. When I went to school, I took the exam, but not with much difficulty because I thought I was going to barf every other minute. The exam wasn't so bad, but the feeling that I was going to barf was not good.
Anyway, I slept for the rest of the afternoon, after my test. My prof told me I didn't have to go to the ACLE she required us to go. I woke up this morning and felt better, so I guess that's a good thing.
Anyway, I recorded the last part of this voice post smiling. Does it sound like I'm happier? I guess I do have to sound happier. Apparently, I sound kind of angry when I record myself. But I am the happy. But I guess there is a lot to do. These voice posts will be handy as I try to work on my non-angry vocal powers.
