Friends, Romans, Countrymen! Lend me your ears, or rather, lend me your fabulous taste in music.
Over the past couple of days I’ve been trying to compile a sufficiently upbeat and cheery playlist to help me through my chemotherapy course and to give me spirit when I need it most. The mood options on Spotify have been very helpful with this task (I especially like the air-punch one – god knows I love a good air-punch).
So here’s my challenge to all of you. Please tell me your one favourite uplifting song that just makes you really damn happy and like everything is right in the world. It can be as cheesy or as pretentious as you like, I will not judge.
You can either comment on this post with suggestions or let me know through Facebook.
In other news, I’m half way through finishing my Lego pet shop. Now I’m not talking like standard Lego. We’re talking expert Lego (16+ thank you very much). Yeah, I don’t fuck around. Also, nearly swept the floor with my Dad in a game of Trivial Pursuit, might have to brush up a bit more though.
By the time I get out of here I’m going to be one hell of an activities buff. Feeling bored, Flo Kleiner’ll fix that. She’s got a solution to every boredom problem you could imagine.
I’m also trying to work out how to rotate these videos of me dancing to Hairspray songs so you can all laugh at how great I am at lip syncing (honestly I could so take on RuPaul and Jimmy Fallon). You might have to wait to see that though as I try to get my head around technology (chemo brain – it’s a thing, trust me).
Oh yes! I’ve also been super productive and am now on top of exactly which pills I take when and what they’re called and what they’re all for as well. So now I can be on it like a car bonnet and make sure the nurses are not poisoning me (they would never do that – they love me, obvs).
Okey dokey. That seems to be all for today. Just being honest but nothing much is happening ‘maintenant’ (oh yeah, I know French). I might get platelets tomorrow which is exciting. I’ll be sure to document that experience for you all. In the mean time, think of me with fondness and the promise that tomorrow you’ll get to see another wonderful picture of my delicious face. Farewell (for now….)
