Study, study, study

14 01 2010

Since there is a little bit of time on the weekend to catch up, I can post more fun pictures.

We have this sign on campus that says: “Slow down iguana crossing”. I had no idea until I saw one in the grass one day…

Also, I won’t be posting daily pictures of goods in Dominica but there are good eats around here. I was surprised when I read other student’s blogs and one person said that the only decent thing around here was KFC. It is so untrue. Although the food isn’t the best around here there are actually lots of variety and options … that is if you aren’t so concerned with gourmet. [Pictures are posted in the photobucket link on the right side.]

Nutmeg

11 01 2010

I bought this awesome advocado shake today and found a surprise in my drink: nutmeg!

Health Benefits of Nutmeg: Nutmeg cures stomach ache, diarrhea and helps to detoxify the body, reduces blood pressure and increases blood circulation. It is also good for digestion, reducing acidity, relieving vomiting, flatulence and is used as a medicine for respiratory problems.”

I didn’t really like the taste, but went ahead and drank the whole thing knowing it was good for me and my health. Surprisingly I am not coughing anymore… and this makes me utterly happy today. :o)





Dayquil & Nyquil

10 01 2010

I made an error of not sticking the cough drops my husband gave me into the bag. It doesn’t even weigh that much. *sigh* I went to church today after taking two Dayquil liquid caps and for some reason I dozed off here and there. It just kicked in so fast or was I feeling super duper ill? Walking back home, I thought I was going to faint. Dayquil was not supposed to make you sleepy. another *sigh*





Disorder

9 01 2010

In case someone else feels the same way I do too. This is nature.

Energy: defined as ability to do work (science of physics). Nature tends to lowest possible energy (decay) and highest state of disorder.

Anyhow, I received my barrel yesterday from Mr. Alexis’ Taxi service place. It costs $184EC. Actually it was only $134EC but because I didn’t have the money to pay his staff upfront, I was charged “storage fee”. Hmm… today’s lunch is interesting. Mama noodles with shredded dried pork, vitamin E, two DayQuil liquid gelcaps, and lots of water. Oh boy. I can’t regulate my own body heat in this hot weather and AC cold room. lol





Checking In

8 01 2010

We are not officially checked in, until we check in on campus. If we don’t CHECK IN, we are not registered to take the tests nor able to use the library.

Here are some goats from yesterday.

Print stations. Once I have printed something from my computer, it gets sent to a print queue, and I then go here to release the print jobs. The screen is touch screen. Unbelievable.
