Gone, gone, gone! So long!

Since Sunday night, I've been sick with fever and cough. Oh, how I suffered... I haven't had a fever before this for 5 years. At least that's what my medical records say. I hit 39.9 degrees. I thought that was normal, right, because I don't get fevers that much. But apparently according to people who were in the room when my temperature was taken, it wasn't good news. So I went to a doctor and he prescribed me with medicine for the fever and the cough. That was all good, all except for the fever. Really, I've had worst coughs before, so I'm not complaining about the cough.

The fever I had, let's just say, it was a bitch. It would just slip in and out whenever it wants! Like "Okay, I think I'll just make him suffer now and maybe some hours later..." It would just come and go like I don't have a healthy life to live. So, anyway, the WORST times would be in the dead of night. I would get up, feeling as if I'd just walked through the Sahara dessert. It was like a furnace. Not the weather, my body! The fever would then subside after sweating lightly. But still for the next few days the fever came back and forth until Wednesday evening, it didn't come back and I'm still fever-free as I type this. So thank you God!

Well anyway, I've another story from college. Well, some weeks ago I went up to college to ask some questions about next semester and about a scholarship. After that, I went to my room in the Residence Building. Well, I didn't tell my roommate (R) I was coming back for a day or two. So when I entered the room, I instantly noticed things had been.... moved. First, his laptop and his books were on my desk along with his bag on my chair. Not only that, there were two towel racks, one above the other right. I occupied the towel rack above since I was the first one who moved in and he took the bottom one. But NOW, I noticed my towel and his have switched position! Lol. I was a little weirded out by that. I thought I was alone, until I heard water running in the shower. So I knocked on the door and called.

R: Oh, you're back? I thought you were on holiday, I thought you - why did you come back up?
Me: I had to check on some things in college.
R: Right, right okay...

I did not address him about the 'changes' as I didn't wanna cause awkwardness. So I just kept quiet and I went out after that for dinner. Don't get me wrong, I wasn't angry or anything. So the funny thing was when I came back, EVERYTHING was back to where they once were before I came back to Seremban for the holidays! I was like, oh he caught on! Lol.

But it was very considerate and nice of him to move everything back in order. I should be thankful he didn't use my stuff without my permission or maybe steal them, right? Lol. I just think that it was just so cute how he quickly changed everything back to normal after I came in abrubtly without him being informed. OH WELL :)

~Life may not be the party we'd wished for, but while we're living it, we might as well dance.
