This post used to contain pictures, but due to new storage limitations from WordPress, I had to fix the problem and decided to create a new blog that works as an archive for all the posts from my two years in California. This full post can be found here.
Today something mysterious happened. It hasn’t rained in months and it’s not supposed to now in the summer according to my hostfamily. But at 6pm, apperantly just in our neighborhood, the rain all of a sudden started pouring down. I’ve never seen it rain that much here before. In Sweden we have those showers, but here it just drizzles when it “rains”. It only lasted for like five minutes also.
I’m feeling good now so I decided to go to the gym as soon as I got off work at 7pm. I started with 15 minutes on the stair machine, then a strength routine of four excercises, and I finished with 35 minute on the elliptical. I’ve heard that’s not a good machine to use, but never why. So until then I will keep burning 100cal/10minutes.
In my freetime I went to the doctor’s office because I’ve had kinda like a bump on the side of my but for two weeks. In the beginning I thought it was a pimple, it was a really big bump. After a few days the swollenness went away and it started looking like a bug bite of some sort. And it was fine (but red and kinda nasty) for a week. But then, two days ago it started hurting like crazy! I woke several times a night because it hurt so bad. So today the doctor said it probably was a cyst or a pimple that got infected. She gave me a antibiotic cream to put on twice daily and told me to come back as soon as it got worse in any way. In which case I would need real antibiotic for the infection. It’s gross… and it hurts!
I read a little too and I have to admit, this is the first time I’m having difficulties reading an English book! There are a lot of new words and I have troubles following what’s happening. I guess the new terms for all their weapons and group of people makes it more confusing also. I’m one third through the book, not used to this many pages so it will take longer to finish all these five books.
Tonight I also finished the last of my shopping for the package I will send home to my three cousins, finally! Hopefully I will have time to send it next week. Hope they will like it :).
Now the time is nigh for some sleep. My muscles are starting to ache so I will probably sleep like a baby tonight, awesome!
This is what I saw when I drove to the gym. Much prettier in real life though!
