Making Plans

I've been trying to think of things to do to keep myself occupied. I always look forward to weekends because my friends and siblings don't have school and my parents don't have work. I get really excited during the week just thinking about my weekend plans even if they aren't anything special. For example, this weekend I'm going to my brother's football game at school and then I have plans with friends Saturday night. Before I got sick, these would be very normal only slightly exciting weekend plans but now I find that every little thing I do that involves other people gets me really excited- and not because I'm healthy enough to do them but just because I'm so bored that everything seems exciting.

I've also been looking for things to do during the week that don't involve other people but keep me entertained and busy. I'm really interested in taking a cooking class because I think it would be a lot of fun. It's just kinda hard to find one that will take up enough of my time (not just one class) and that hasn't started already... My aunt also owns a radiology practice in the city and she's trying to get me a part-time job two or three times a week there taking calls and notes and whatever else she needs. I'm not sure if that's gonna work out but I hope it does because it'll definitely give me something to do and I'll get paid :). It's funny how small things like these excite me so much more than they used to. I also wish that my friends didn't have school so we could hang out all day. I'm also kinda getting sick of watching movies and tv and reading books all day...
My other weekend plans include dinner with my brother, a Jets game, and a college interview (which I'm really scared for meh).

Hope you enjoyed my little update. Feel free to share any of your weekend plans or any suggestions for me (thanks to people who already have!)

  2. College interview! That's big stuff. I'm sure you'll do well. Any college would be lucky to have a girl like you.

    Fill me in on the dets over thanksgiving?

    Lots of love,
    Yael and Daniel

  4. You are an amazing person Ella :)

  5. Hi Ella, I went to GA with your dad and have been following your blog. You *are* amazing, and funny (I know where you got that trait!), and resilient, which I've learned is perhaps one of the most important qualities a person can have. Thanks for sharing your story so honestly. Licia H.
