let's drink water


- taking this 40 Day Challenge where you only drink water for the 40 days of Lent.  I've never done Lent before--never even really knew when it was until I worked at McDs last spring and it seemed like all we sold was fish--but I thought this was an interesting challenge, and I can always drink more water.  I admit, however, it's a bit daunting--I drank a gallon of peach tea in preparation.
- the wall mirrors that go all the way around the main room of Planet Fitness.  I have scoliosis and walk kind of lopsidedly, but I never realized how bad it was 'til I saw myself walking in one of those mirrors.  So, thank you, Planet Fitness, for slowly breaking down my positive self image. ;)
- my science teacher this week, after he realized that Valentine's Day was coming up.  After we all teased him about not getting anything yet for his girlfriend, he proceeded to inform us that every day with him is like Valentine's Day, "and every night is like the Fourth of July."


- quitting my 365 challenge.  It is such a relief to not have to worry about taking a picture every single day. Yay for failure!
- Valentine's Day!!!!  I ended up skipping school today (because my car is falling apart), but I did go to Walmart to join the masses of boyfriends, fiances, and husbands desperately searching for some passable flowers and maybe some chocolate. I had a hard time holding myself back from running down the aisles singing "All the Single Ladies".  Go watch this cute video for some Valentine's Day cuteness--my favorite is the little red-haired girl. :)
- prayer for Djamsel would be awesome--there's some issues with the center he's been attending and I'm not really sure what the outcome will be.  Hopefully it'll all be resolved soon--please pray that his center won't be closed!
- an A on my science test!
- getting tested to see if I'm able to donate bone marrow this week!  I was encouraged to do this by my science teacher, who knew someone who has leukemia and is in need of a transplant.  The only thing that was kind of weird was that, when I went to my teacher's school to get tested, of course he was there.  Nothing like chatting with your professor while awkwardly swabbing the inside of your mouth--I felt like we were really bonding. 
- Happy Valentine's Day!

I love to hear about your days! So funny about your Walmart almost singing experience... if you'd done it you'd be my hero forever. Thinking it puts you pretty high in the ranks, too though. =) Your science teacher sounds quite the interesting fellow. Happy Valentine's Day, Sarah!

I love your Awk/Awe posts!!! :) They are so fun to read. I don't know how you people come up with everything!
Hehe... that's kind of funny. I have scoliosis, too. Although mine is a 'brought on self' type if deal...
Your science teacher sounds like loads of fun. ;) hehe!
That's so neat about the transplant! I'll be praying for it! Just one tip for this coming week: Don't bit your ears off!!!! ;) haha!
