Evergreen State College is one of the most prominent liberal arts colleges in the NW. It was my original choice and, if I were to go anywhere, it's still the place I want to go. They have so many writing programs, it's just baffling how accommodating that college is.
I mean, really, it's definitely worth looking up. They're notorious for their protests too.

I hate the way you cling to ignorance and pass it off as innocence
I am nearly finished my playthrough of Knights of the Old Republic. This is the first time in a long ass time I've actually played the same game all the way through without taking any kind of a break to play something else in my free time. My dedication has payed off, and I plan to continue this strategy with every game I play in the future (providing I actually like the game).
You might wish to pick up KotOR 2 then (released on Steam recently). While the gameplay is essentially the same, I personally like the story much more as it is much more complex. If you do, however, don't forget to pick up the Restored Content Mod since Obsidian was forced to release a fairly unfinished game. Especially the droid factory is not to be missed.
I already have KotOR II because I picked up the Knights of the Old Republic Collection at my local EB. I won't dismiss the restored content mod but I'd like to play through vanilla first. I would never play a mod my first time through a game! That's just the way I am I guess...
1. Inhumane stomach infection threaten the life of a nerdy dude!
Have my testweek next week and I'm so screwed. Been so lazy this semester so far; mostly my own fault, but I was continually ill for a long time.I was actually in the hospital for a couple of days...nothing serious. One of the downsides is that they didn't find a full diagnoses for whatever was wrong with me. Well this was almost a month ago and no recurring illness, so I guess this was a one time thing.
(Why didn't this asshole bunny not told us his symptoms or gave a vague description of his illness so far?)
Well I was busy eating Fizzers when my stomach began to pain. I though this was just because I hadn't eaten proper food all day and eating sweets is what caused this familiar pain. So I stopped right there and went to make me some proper food, but by the time the food was finished, the pain had grown in an unknown degree. I ate as much as I could before physically being unable to. The pain was so intense, I literally couldn't stand up or at a bigger than 90 degree angle between my upper body and legs (upsidedown L. lol), also started having those cold sweat reactions or what you may call it. So it basically looked like I walked trying to touch my toes the whole damn time! The only way I could ease the pain was to crawl into a fetus position and stay like that.
But after some time I thought going to the bathroom might help, it didn't. I usually don't get very ill often and when I am I sleep it off. So I wanted to sleep it off but couldn't, so just as I was about to call my parents (they are very supportive in such ways!), my dad called me to ask how I was doin and that my step sis also had a stomach ache (not as severe as mine, we thought it might be food poisoning, but my parents also ate the food we ate [when I was at home the weekend]).
Nevertheless, my dad called my other step sis, cause she coincidentally was in town at a get together. She end up picking me up and taking me to the hospital. Puked on the way there (due to the motion of the car)(sorry for including every detail, you might just know what was wrong!). We get there and went to the emergency room, filled in some forms, waited a bit and was then showed to a nurse.
She told me to lay down, and obviously I couldn't cause the pain became so great when I tried to. Did some tests, asked some questions, took a sample of blood and hooked me up to a drip (for the pain of course), that drip finished and she asked me if the pain had reduced, but it didn't. She then gave me morphine shot and after a few minutes asked again how the pain was...Still the same. She then gave the last recommended amount of morphine to me. Same story, still in horrible pain. I could feel the effect of it (feels drowsy, drugged) but it did nothing to the pain.
Went to the ward and stayed the night, couldn't really sleep. By that morning, the pain had reduced but was still there. They continue to hook me up to drips and eventually the pain went away. YAY!! Did some more tests the day and was released the day thereafter. The only thing the doc said was that I had a high infection count from my blood sample. So during my stay they didn't gave specific medication, just infection/pain drips.
tl;dr - I had an infection in my stomach with unimaginable pain. Morphine didn't help. Was released the next day.
PS Really didn't think This was gonna be this long...
