Even though I haven't really accomplished much lately, I did get a few things done that have made me happy.
First of all, as I mentioned before, Vacation Bible School was last week. I got a lot of compliments from people. They all said I did a good job and it looked like I was really into it and having fun. And it's true, I did have a lot of fun. But my favorite part was how some of the younger kids would approach me and tell me how much they loved the songs. One girl even gave me a hug. I had the warm fuzzies for hours after that. And one day after VBS, my mom, my brother, and I were driving home and we were apparently behind a car that had a kid from VBS in it because I saw the kid raise their arms above their head like they were dancing to one of the songs. It was so cute!! And it made me feel really good to know that I made an impact on those children; hopefully they'll remember VBS for a long time and have happy memories about it.
Last night was a little challenging for me. I was IM-ing my boyfriend when he suddenly told me that he was having an argument with some jerk on Facebook that he knows from a youth group that he was in, and during the argument, the jerk defriended him. My boyfriend was very upset about it because, from what he told me, the jerk had been giving him problems for a long time so last night's argument was the last straw for him. And apparently the jerk is hard to avoid because he's still in the same youth group, and he's a member of the band that my boyfriend is in. So I talked with my boyfriend for an hour or two to help calm him down, but it was really hard; I could tell he was angry, and that feeling wouldn't go away for a while. Eventually I had to log off and go to bed, but luckily I was able to help my boyfriend feel a little better by that time. And when I checked my email a few minutes ago, I saw that he sent me an email some time after midnight saying that "I just want you to know that I went to bed happy, largely thanks to you." I'm glad that I was able to help him out. After all, he's let me vent a million and a half times, so the least I could do was let him vent once.
Speaking of Internet (okay, I never actually mentioned the Internet, but I needed to make a segue here), my dad bought a new wireless router so I can get an Internet connection! I mentioned in one of my previous blog entries (http://bmgf.bulbagarden.net/blogs/meloetta23/theres-no-place-like-home-32557/) that there was a HUGE storm where I live, and it caused a lot of power outages and damage and stuff. Well, my family got lucky in that we only had a large fallen branch in our backyard, and we didn't lose power. However, the storm fried my wireless router, so the only way I could use my laptop is if I manually hooked it up to the home computer. Now I don't have to do that anymore.
This isn't a victory because I didn't do it, but I still feel the need to discuss it for a moment. Anyone who lives in the United States is well aware of the heat wave that's been going on for over a week now. And for those of you who aren't aware of it, let me just say that IT'S A NIGHTMARE!!!! It's been in the mid-90s pretty much every day, and it's been really humid. People have even been sent to the hospital; I'm not sure how many of those people have died though. I've been pretty miserable in this heat. Nothing sucks quite like settling down for a nap and waking up covered in sweat from head to toe. It makes me feel really gross. :disgusted: And I've been drinking a ton of cold water and eating pretty much nothing but popsicles, and I have two fans in my room, both on full blast. Still, I'm grateful that I actually have fans and air conditioning in my house; for some people, those are luxuries that they can't have. Hopefully, things will start to cool off soon. Today is still pretty warm, but at least it's not as hot as it has been. So I'm taking the luck when I can get it.
