the middle of the day started with a BANG. literally. halfway through Korean class there was an explosion outside and we all ran to the window but we think it was just fireworks or something because there was red and yellow smoke. but then our classroom smelled like sulfur. Chemistry lab gone wrong? no one will know....
Before Korean went to lunch with Barbara, Caitlyn and a girl named Janice from Canada. We had bim bim bop basically rice with vegetables and it was nice.
Had to meet for a group presentation at the library and we are all taking a certain amount of slides then meeting tomorrow and then presenting in our Korean Art class thursday. very exciting.
Walking back to CJ I saw the two girls from Chile, Carolina and Paulina, and decided to use my amazing spanish skills. the conversation went something like this:
Paulina: Hola! Como estas?
Carolina: asi-asi??? fkjadsfkljadlfkjadlfjadljf (lots of spanish I didn't know)
that pretty much ended the spanish part of our conversation but I sat down with them (they were smoking but almost done) and one of the boy RA's came out with a tray of facemasks and rubbing alcohol. We asked him where he was going and he said "one of the boys in CJ has swine flu so we're checking everyone's temperatures. Whoops wasn't supposed to tell you that he has h1n1." then walks away so we walk in and we're ushered to the desk where they take our temperature. I was pretty nervous since I have a cough and my forehead seems pretty warm but when she took it I was a 35.6 and the normal is 37 something. I got into the elevator and started talking to a chinese girl in my korean class and her friend and they said that since they're using rubbing alcohol to take the temperature each time that it's going to be lower no matter what.
Later I was in Caitlyn's room and we heard a knock at her door and we looked out and it was the girl taking temperatures and she took
THIS JUST IN!!!
RA FROM OUR FLOOR JUST TOLD IRINA THE OTHER RA ON MY FLOOR THAT A GIRL HAS A TEMPERATURE OF 38 SO SHE HAS TO GO TO THE HOSPITAL
anyway back to my story. (but that was pretty exciting wasn't it??). The total count is 6 boys from anam and one girl from CJ, seriously this is straight from the authorities you should all be lucky that you have such an insider writing this blog. I should probably notify perez hilton.
OK so the girl took caitlyn and her suite mate's temperature then told us that they will be checking our temperature once every 5 days. Caitlyn's room mates are from China and they are freaking out about h1n1. I'm pretty sure it's just an asian thing because everyone else who I've talked to about it from South America, Europe etc seem fine.
Thank you aunt elizabeth for the package!!!
Time to do some Hwork!
