Hand update:

So I have a staph infection on my hand. But before I knew that I watched this kid skate outside while he waited for a bus. I thought I could get a cool picture of the Urgent Care sign backwards while he did a trick, I didn't pull it off.


So what happened was, I went to the Urgent Care to get my hand looked at. I was told that I had a Staph infection and that it was/could be bad news. So the doctor cut a inch long gash in my hand and for the next half an hour squeezed out about a barrel full of pus and blood. The best part, after the bloodletting, was when he had to empty the pus out of my finger tip on my ring finger. He said it'd hurt more to numb it than to just stick the needle in and squeeze the pus out. I told him to do what he needed to do and as soon as he did what he needed to do, I became more dizzy than I ever had in my life. The next thing I know, I'm covered in sweat, staring at a stranger and I don't know where I am or what is happening. I can't begin to explain the feeling. I have never had this feeling before, but I literally had no idea who the man sitting in front of me was, I had no idea where I was or what was going on. I can't get over it. It was by far the most surreal feeling that I've ever felt of looking at this man in front of me and not knowing at all who he was or what was going on around me. Hard to describe I guess, unless you've had that feeling yourself at some point. Anyway, so I guess I'm okay now. I have to take antibiotics and they gave me pain pills for the cut on my hand. So if anyone wants to party, you know where to find me!!!!
