Allergies and Today’s Tomorrow

Well, it’s official. Spring has now started. How do I know? It’s not that the snow has melted, or that the robins have come out. It’s not even the warmer temperatures. No, spring has officially started because I have started sneezing my head off.

My allergies always act up about partway through spring, usually when the dandelions come out. I’m not sure whether it’s actually the dandelions that affect me, but they usually coincide with my allergies. But whatever the case, allergies suck, big time. I hate it when the inside of your nose gets itchy, and you know you have to sneeze, but it just decides to stay there for a little while, bugging you, until it finally gets bad enough to trigger the sneeze. During class today, if you watched me closely enough, you could see me wriggling my nose every few minutes, because I knew a sneeze was coming on and I couldn’t do anything about it. Sometimes I can stop the sneeze just by exhaling heavily to try and blow the allergen out before I have to sneeze (of course, you have to make sure there’s no loose snot in your nose before you do this, or the result gets messy), but other times that just doesn’t work.

Motivation for Organization

Since today was just an average Sunday, I won’t go into much detail except to mention that tonight the guys are meeting at Pastor Dave’s house to eat pizza and play poker. He’s one of the few pastors at our church that doesn’t mind playing cards, but his email to the guys was “written in code,” mentioning a “special” tournament, in case his wife or one of the pastors intercepted the email.

So anyways, I’ll try to keep this entry short, since I don’t have much to say. Yesterday evening was sort of a strange night, but definitely a productive one. My mom needed to use the computer for an hour or two last night, so I had to find something else to do during that time. I already mentioned that I filled in my income tax forms, so that was done. I went up to my room and read Red Rabbit for a little bit, and then started to get a strange feeling, an overwhelming need to organize. It’s something that doesn’t happen very often. I usually organize under the guise of being disorganized. I mean, I can find anything I want in my room, it’s just that no one else can. But what do I care? It’s my room. Maybe I don’t want anyone else to find anything.

But anyways, I started to look over what I’ve been planning to read for my daily devotions for the next little while. I’ve got to finish up the Purpose-Driven Life,…Continue Reading
