10:24 pm - Sage and Summer
 So the other day Sage started peeing all over the house every 5 minutes! We looked at her little dribbles of pee and there was a white mucus too. I called the vet to see if we could bring her in and it was about 12 and they said we could bring her in at 3. I was already in panic mode and looked up online and read about how it could be a blockage and that it may bring about an overload of toxins, which would result in kidney failure and then death in 48 hours. Then she started peeing blood! I was freaking out!! Harold called the vet back and they said we could come in right away. We went and the vet said that she thought it was just a UTI, but took a urinalysis to be sure. Gave us antibiotics and told us that Sage had lost about 1 lb in like 2-3 months, but that her heart was better (we started giving her children asprin for that) and that she still thought Sage had an overactive thyroid. So we got her a bloodtest and the results came back positive. So now Sage is on medication for that. 

She seems to be doing better as far as the UTI goes though it's been hard to give her such large pills and she's thrown them up like 3 times...I think that it was a result of using the all-natural pea-fiber and mint cat litter, because it was soo dusty! We took it back to Mudd Bay and got a refund and used the money to buy vegetarian dog food for Joplin and Gracie. The bill for the vet was ridiculous though! 

School is over. I have my evaluation tomorrow. I think I am going to be getting full credit in my program as well as my 2-credit poetry class. But I am nervous for the conference anyways because that's just how I am. I've always been a wreck with these types of things. Turning in job applications too! Which I've have been doing a little bit of, but am in desperate need of a job now and right away!!! I need to make rent! I am applying to lots of places and have a list. I know I would do well at any of these places and that I am really good with people, but I just get so nervous and flustered trying to sell myself! I wish I knew people who knew people! 

Other than getting a job this summer, Harold and I have plans to go visit my family in Colorado. We found 2 rideshares already, 1 of whom is a greener and is riding back with us as well. I am excited to see the ranch in summer and, of course, my family.

I am also going to poetry camp at Ft Flagger to study the beats for 5 nights and 6 days. We shall have an Italian chef and optional yoga on the beach in the mornings. I hear that people get drunk usually and just have a lot of fun. 8 credits. I am excited and know of 1 person who is going as well. I want to catch back up on the credits I missed out on in fall so that I can graduate next Spring (as long as I take an extra .

I really want my dad to see me walk at graduation and I know that it will be really important for him. He was not able to go to college, because he went to Vietnam Airborne (parachuting out of planes) and it has always been a dream of his to see us kids graduate from college. My sister is 10 years older than me and working on graduating in 1-2 years. She got pregnant at 17 and had Tyler at 18. She went to 1 year of school after this and got straight A's, but had to quit because she didn't have the money. My brother went traveling around the world. Making music. Filming mystics like Tibetan monks, Rastafarians, and Native Grandmothers. Now he oversees a 3,000 acre yak ranch and is growing about 10,000 veggies and herbs for the farm and working on getting a geothermal greenhouse set up. My parents paid almost as much as Evergreen is costing me out of state for my high school at a private all girls school where 100% went on to college. So seeing me walk will be important.

And it kind-of sucks because I just got half-a-proposition (aka not official but I am being considered) to go to Thailand for about 1 month  and my ticket would be paid for as well as accommodations. I would be going with a good friend and I have always wanted to travel out of the country. It is the only thing I can think of that makes a lot of sense and has been a dream of mine, since I have only been to Canada. However, it falls on the same date as Poetry Camp and it would completely ruin my chances of having my father see me walk. I wish there was some way around it. But I am really happy to have even been considered and feel touched that my friend even asked me especially since it's going to be an important trip for her. Maybe someday...

In other news, Harold and my plants are doing well! Only the acorn squash is behind. Surprisingly the other squash and both kinds of pumpkins are doing well!
