I passed my Speech and Drama exam.

Also I'm not at school today but I wouldn't have been able to because I'm sick. Ugh. I woke up at 5am and barely had time to get to the bathroom before I threw up.

But how am I throwing up, I haven't eaten since 7am yesterday! THIS MAKES NO SENSE.

Each subject was individually contacted with the wish that I would like to "catch up" with said friend or relative.  These conversations took place over three days to account for time zones and work/school schedules of the subjects.  When we connected over Skype for the conversation, timing and recording did not start automatically; I waited until the conversation hit a natural flow and had shifted to more declarative utterances than questions that required answers, which was approximately 5-10 minutes into each conversation, before beginning to time and record.  None of the participants were informed beforehand that I would be collecting data from them.  

I timed and recorded exactly five minutes of each conversation.  The topics varied from subject to subject, and I conversed as normal.  I did not take any observational data while participating in the conversation -- I let Audacity record the conversation and then shut off the recording once I had reached 05:00 minutes.  After the five minutes had been recorded, I informed the subject that I had just collected data from them for a linguistics experiment, and thanked them for their help.

omfg, oh no. D:

Feel better, you poor thing. And be really careful, try to eat/drink something!! – a few summers ago I was throwing up all night, and then when I got up to walk across the house with no calories in my system, I passed out and cut my lip when I fell. D:

Flat 7-UP or Sprite (or fill-in-the-lemon-lime-soda) is usually good, because it's pretty easy on the stomach but has tons of sugar in it. Get betterrrrrr. ♥
