trying to sleep...

I can't sleep.

I'm getting my wisdom teeth out tomorrow morning at 8am and I am scared beyond belief. Not for the pain.... that would make sense. For the IV. I'm petrified. In fact, I feel gross just thinking about it right now. The mere thought of a needle makes my arms feel wobbly. I HATE needles. I told the doctor that I wanted him to numb my arm first so I wouldn't feel the prick... he told me to grow up. Some doctor, huh? My mom keeps telling me I just need to think about something else, but that's easier said then done. But I'm trying...

Being home has been nice. I mostly enjoy sleeping in and having absolutely nothing to do. Not that I've done nothing, I've actually been quite busy. But I haven't HAD to do anything. And it's been wonderful to see friends from high school. Although, I must admit, things just aren't the same. Everyone's gone off to different places and had vastly different experiences. It's weird because, as much as I want to, you just can't pick up where you left off. I'm not the same girl I was a year ago. Not that I never changed in high school -- of course I did. It's just that before, we all changed together. We went through the same things, and we went through them together. But now it's all changed. The ways that I grew and changed at Cornell are nothing compared to the ways in which my friends did. Not that that ruins our friendship, it doesn't at all. It just means that we need to take things a little slower... not take things for granted so much... not assume that everything will be just as it always was. It's weird when I have to get to know my best friend all over again. I'm sure things will be wonderful in a few weeks, it just takes time I guess.

So, my brother gradutated on Sunday. He and his fiance. Who are getting married in about three weeks. Talk about craziness! He's only 2 1/2 years older than me!! I'm quite excited for the wedding :) It's going to be lovely... quite classy. And hopefully there'll be lots of champagne --wink-wink--

Alright, my laundry just buzzed. I should go fold that and get some sleep. Pray for me tomorrow... and feel free to come visit and bring me lots of yummy treats!! (well, anything that can be slurped that is!)

Nighty night,

erica
