女暗部 - bewilderment / distress

So it seems I have an ear infection.

No idea how I got it, it is quite uncomfortable and painful, and I don't know how long it will take for it to pass.

It had better pass before my flight back home, or my ear drum might burst and I could suffer permanent loss of hearing.

In other news, we went to the Morikami museum and Japanese Gardens today. Unfortunately, not alone. A friend of the family drove us there, which was good. That she brought her brat along was not good. She acts like half her age. >_< Talks all the time, goes "ewww" at all the food and anything she doesn't like.. I wouldn't have minded her if she could just SHUT UP for more than twenty seconds. That coupled with my ear infection made the trip less than pleasant.

The food was good. I had a japanese beer, teriyaki salmon, and two desserts, because I couldn't decide between red bean ice cream and green tea ice cream. Both were very good. ^_^

Cookie to anyone who can name these flowers.

I like lizards. <_<

女暗部 - face in the crowd / kodoku

Ignore what I said about being miserable earlier.

Now I'm miserable.

Niichan's mom took me to a clinic, I was briefly examined and given antibiotics. It's going to be hell to get it reimbursed from my insurance company, but I'll worry about that later. Now I just want to get well enough to fly home on the 11th. Having to change flights due to medical reasons would be worse than this. Physical pain I can endure. The pain, while bad, isn't the reason I am crying. I'm crying because I am scared, I don't know what will happen. And I'm crying because this is something that an adult should be able to handle by herself, in my mind. Thankfully I have people here who make sure to take good care of me. So I'm probably going to be okay. Eventually. But it does make me feel like a failure.

Still no word from home on anything.
Going to bed now.
