So I’ve been MIA for awhile, but I promise I have a good reason.
I’m up at camp, and it’s not the easiest of things to get time to sit down and blog. Especially because you can only get wifi in certain places! I’m able to get it in my room in the staff cabin, but I’m barely in there.
In any case, I’ve been having a blast at camp. I started to lose my voice and put myself on self imposed vocal rest for a day. It made a world of difference. My voice isn’t 100% back, but it’s pretty darn close.
Tomorrow I start another leg of my journey. I’m driving down to Pittsburgh again (three weekends in a row! - BT over Memorial Day Weekend, Picked up Daniel from the airport LAST weekend, and now…) to drop Alex off at the Greyhound station, and then meet up with my friend Jeff to go with him to his cousin’s wedding.
Then tomorrow night I’ll drive over to Johnstown and stay with my friends Nick & Stacey. Then to Harrisburg for Bill & Amy’s wedding… (Which reminds me… I still need to get a card!). After their ceremony, I’ll be heading home and then catching a train into the city, as my Musical Theatre Intensive in NYC starts on Monday morning! I’m really excited for this and can’t wait to get started!
So far at camp, I’ve only had one debilitating migraine. My head hurts at some point everyday, but not enough to knock me out. On Wednesday though, I was down for the count for a few hours. Between the pain and my medication, I ended up crawling back into bed for a few hours after pricing in the gift shop proved too taxing for me.
Later that day, the migraine waned enough that I was able to join the living. Though I did keep my sunglasses on for almost the whole day.
I’m thankful to have a boss and friends who understand my migraine situation and are concerned about my health. It makes everything much easier here.
I do have to work on my hydration though. I’m fairly certain that it contributed to that migraine on Wednesday. I’ve been carrying my Nalgene filled with either water or Gatorade all the time, but I’m not always as diligent about being hydrated as I should be.
I’ve got my bottle filled up with Gatorade now though, and have the aim of finishing two bottles of Gatorade or water today. At least. And that’ll be my goal everyday for the rest of the summer.
It’s just about time for breakfast, so I have some time after that where I can finally start catching up on those migraine prompts that I’ve been missing out on!
Hope you’re all well!
