So, KSU Financial Aid - in all of it's glory - has messed up again. They pulled my financing for Belize and don't meet again to resolve the issue until June 7th. I leave June we see the issue here? I mean really now, come on - They gave me 10 days notice. That's right. 10 mother-lovin' days. "Oh yes, we'll fund you after the 7th." - not helpful guys.

But! Isn't it great to have loving family? Looks like they're going to help me out and let me pay them back with the funding.

Throwing up still seems like a good option but less panicky.

Malaria Pills

So, took the first dose of malaria pills. They taste like pure sin compressed into pill form. They also made me feel pretty gross; dizzy and sick to my stomach. I suppose that's better than full blown malaria. I have to take two pills once a week every week I'm there and then for 4 weeks after I get home. Blegh...

6 days!!
