Accident And Emergency
I want to thank you for the lovely comments on my previous blog – I was feeling down and your comments made me feel better, relieved, and a lot happier. I had written that because I wasn’t in the best of moods, and had a personal experience to share. I understand if some of you felt intimidated not to comment; that’s fine too. :)
Speaking of my organisational skills (or lack thereof), I have made a few plans for this week. Tonight I’ll finish off my assignment, and any spare time will be spent on little things I have to do, like returning comments and responding to emails.
I will have quite a lot of time this weekend and I plan on putting up a new layout, as well as updating Aquapheric.net with my light stock, and finishing off a few fanlistings. They are my small plans to fit in with my assignment that is due next Thursday.
I feel very proud, because I finished my draft essay that was due yesterday, and made it to a solid 844 words. I have to blind peer review two of my classmates’ work. It reminds me of reviewing websites. The funny thing is that I don’t know who wrote the essay, so it’s all mysterious, and I’ll get two reviews done on my work too.
The other day I was talking to Rachel. I had been an idiot, and picked my nose too hard that it bled. Yes, extremely stupid. /hehe
I mean, you can’t deny it, we’ve all picked our noses at least once in our lifetime. Bet you did it when you were a kid! :P
My nose didn’t bleed that much, but I obviously felt really stupid. Rachel told me that it had happened to her as well (and I hope you don’t mind me saying so, Rachel!), except hers had bled a lot.
So, accidents happen, right, and we all feel stupid about them. There was this time I was grating cheese, and having a good old rant to my brother about my stupid science teacher. And I wasn’t really paying attention to the cheese, and I grated half the skin off my finger. Not cool.
A lot of accidents happen in the kitchen that can involve pain, but others happen outside the kitchen. I was at my second-cousin’s house once, and we were playing some kind of hide and seek blindfolded. One of my cousins was blindfolded and she was following us because she heard our footsteps, and knew where we were. Unfortunately as we went into a room to run away, her brother shut the door on her finger and she started screaming very loudly. I had been on the other side of the door with her, while her brother was inside the room, so it was very hard for me to explain what happened, over her screams and her finger stuck in the door as she started crying.
Finally the door was opened and her finger was dripping with blood all over the floor. It was terrible, and our mothers scolded us for playing such a stupid game. We were only young, but it was still a terrible accident.
You can be pretty lucky in an accident too. My mother and I were in a car accident when I was about twelve years old. She was driving me to dance class, and we were waiting at an intersection and we were listening to the radio. When the lights turned green my mother slowly accelerated.
A car hit us from our right. It hit the back corner of our car with such force that our car spun around an entire revolution, if not more. More than 360 degrees. I can’t remember the moment exactly, but I remember as soon as we were hit, my mother and I started screaming and I remember how her hands let go of the steering wheel in shock.
Our car ended up hitting the kerb where the traffic light was, and struck the pole before it stopped spinning. We were alright though, apart from being shocked. The driver who hit us wasn’t paying attention. Of course, he denied it. :( Well, we know he was wrong. :P
I’m planning on a big domain giveaway in October for Heartdrops’ birthday. I plan on giving away at least three domains. I can possibly afford to give away more but if anyone would like to donate a dollar or two, send PayPal payments to hello(AT)georgie.nu. :)
