I can't explain my current state in any other terms but extatic, over the moon, and - yes - delirious would soon be something close enough.
I'm in a major hurry, since a lot of things happened in a rush all at once, but I'll take a quick moment to reflect upon the past weekend and today.
So yes, I'm on my 15th day! Bloody fantastic, I'd say! So far there hasn't been much support but the little of it has been very positive, and people are impressed. Mostly about me having not put anything solid in my mouth for two whole weeks.
On Friday the energy rush went on till maybe 7pm, and that's around when I entered the birthday party. Then I started to feel more normal again. I met old friends, and made a few new ones. I had a good time! Everyone else was drinking, but not in excess, so that was fine. But the toughest part was the plentiful food available. My mind wanted some so badly! But I just hung on, I had to. I tried to concentrate on other things as much as I could, and regarding the circumstances I think I did remarkably well.
We had a sauna sitting competition again, so got some good detoxing done again. I did feel a bit dizzy, I think the Finnish way might be just too hard for a detox.
I started feeling really tired around 1am, so I had to go to bed. I was happy to be able to stay over, and we spent most of Saturday on the balcony sunbathing. I was feeling chilly most of the time and wrapped myself in a blanket, but come later afternoon I felt much warmer, and actually got out in my bikini, and managed to get burned in my face and chest. But had fun altogether! We popped by my flat and I got some of my own veggie juices to drink, and with those I survived the whole day. We went to the sauna again, watched the Eurovision contest, walked a long and freezing way to a pub just to sit there for some half an hour, and then walked back and sat in the sauna for a bit to get warm. We got to bed around 2am.
On Sunday I cleaned up a lot, and read my entry exam books. Or not quite read but leafed through - I just coudn't concentrate. I don't expect to get anywhere near of passing results, but at least I've prepared not to get into Nutrition this year.
I visited dad, and a friend stayed over. Quite a busy day altogether.
Today, oh, today... Today's the day that should be remembered forever. Everything's gone my way, at least in the end. A couple of times I've been about to lose my temper only to find a moment later that I should've been patient - something very satisfactory comes right up.
I had prepared to travel to the exams in the middle of the night due to bad public transport - I was supposed to take the bus just before 1am and make it to the city about half past 7am. Now I searched for the latest bus back home from there and contacted a local mate of mine to act as a guide so that I could get a better look around, and that's when she offered for me to come stay over for the night! She'd even give me a ride to the University in the morning!!!
If it was humanly possible to pop, I would've done so! Instead, I started manically to arrange my transport there, and will now have to leave work two and a half hours early to make it home before the train, and it'll still be touch and go. But I'll make it.
As if that wasn't enough sorting out, I had to organise my shopping for Friday. I might have mentioned I collect stamps from the local supermarket chain to buy knives half-price (actually a big discount for someone as poor as me), and stickers to collect high-quality pillows from another store chain. The collecting ends at the end of this month, and unfortunately I'll be in another city - I'll leave Friday evening, and come back Saturday evening. So I'll have to do all the shopping after work on Friday, and just take the later bus. Silly little things, but important to me. I might have to copy my diary here when I can, it's so full it's ridiculous! I have absolutely no free time this week, the least to study any more for my exams! Bugger! But this is totally annihilating at the same time, I feel extraordinary!
I'll just have to start packing to leave and literally run for the train, so cheerio, I'll update probably on Wednesday, when I'll be at work next!
