Ner's Random Musings on a life of interesting insights

a world of interesting factoids about nothing and everything

home again home again jigity jig @ 04:44 pm

I"m writing from the relative comfort o the recliner. I've had good times today, and bad, my spirits going up and down like a hot air baloon in a summer storm. Right now, I'm doing ok.

Today I've spent much of my time trying to stay in one place so as not hurt myself too much. My mom went to church and I wished I could go but I didn't want to have to lay down in the Jetta once more so I stayed here and watched CNN and some weird thing on PBS about spiritual healing. Gabby the cat crawled up on my lap on a blanket and crled up with me and purred. That was nice. My dad worked outside on demolishing phones and I stayed in here. That was a low point in time for me because I felt utterly alone. I miss my friends so much, the people that made me smile, tok me places, ate lunch with me. I misss crosswords, mochas, and movies. I almost cried but I managed not to, though I know its ok to cry. I just hold onto the hope that soon I'll be back up there, at half or quarter speed, but I'll be back up there. There's always the phone though and I hope more than anything that I get to talk to some of those friends I miss so much; Heather, Megan, Larry, Chris; I miss you all so much.

In checking my email I realized how automated the university is, it at least made me smile and also I was glad that someone out there in administration land cares. It said the following:

The Office of the Dean of Students has been notified that Noel Romey, ID# blah has had a medical emergency. As a result, Noel has been absent from
classes since yesterday, March 3. He will be out of class for an indefinite period of time. He should be contacting each of you to discuss issues relating
to his individual courses. His Spring 2004 schedule, which was affected, is as follows:

CHEG 4423 Automatic Process Control

CHEG 4440 D Chem Eng Design II Drill

CHEG 4443 Chemical Engin Design II

MEEG 491 Special Projects

We appreciate your support in assisting Noel with his transition back to the University. Should you have any questions, please feel free to contact me.



I also got an email from Col. Myers, my admisor telling me how proud he was that I was still going to classes and diubg nt presentation over the speaker phone. I've become somewhat of a legend for that :. I'd take walking around on two feet ten times over being a legend.

I still need all your prayers, thoughts, and messages on im if you like. The im stuff is in my userinfo, but to make it easy,
aim: nromey
msn: ner@uark.edu
phone: 501-681-6254

Sorry if I've told you already but I'd do anything just to talk to a friendly persn in this time of sadness and pain. Thanks so much for everyone's friendly and loving comments, keep em coming!!!!! I'll be back.

Hey boo!

I don't have long distance or I'd call ya. If you get lonely or bored you know how to catch up with me. Any hour of the night is good with me. And I'll see what I can do about the Injecta-Bone-Fixer-3000 idea you have there.

On a different note, I love that icon ^squishyshrimp!

I'm really glad you're able to be home! You've gotta love those automated emails!
I don't have free long distance, so I probably won't be able to call you. I'm usually not good at initiating contact on messenger, but that's usually 'cause I'm not sure if people are online 'cause they wanna talk. Tomorrow I'll have an injection, so I'll be home all day, I'll try to say hey then. Though I can't garantee I'll make sense.
You'll definitely be in my prayers! As lame as this sounds, I know it's true, the really tough stuff makes life hard, but it also gives you a stronger personality, and for me, it's strengthened my faith.

OCS (Only Child Syndrome)

Your commitment to your studies is admirable, especially considering the, shall we say, less than healthy state you're in right now. I certainly wouldn't be in the mood to do anything like that in such pain. Of course, I'm usually the kind of person who only misses class when she can't concentrate on anything no matter how hard she tries, e.g., when she has a fever combined with exhaustion.

And, you know, you seem to be such a "people" person. I, on the other hand, though I enjoy socializing when I have the time, heh, usually prefer to be on my own. Because of my load of adaptive equipment, I honestly don't have room for a roommate and, quite frankly, I like it that way. I guess I'm kind of an independent spirit, who enjoys doing things when she wants and how she wants. (Hey, I should keep referring to myself in the third person. This is fun!) I mean, not to say that I don't get lonely without a roommate, but, you know... Much of this attitude, I suspect, comes from the fact that I am and always have been on "only child". (Could you tell?) Mayhaps, mayhaps. Or, maybe, that's just the way I was designed. I dunno... LOL During my younger days (And, no, I'm not *that* old!), I always wanted a little sister, but now I'm perfectly happy with what I have. Anyway, the strange thing is that I can usually connect with people quite easily and all.

As I always say, keep on keepin' on!
