Slovakia Update #68 – More Blood Gone

Today I went to the hospital, and although I was in a much more mentally prepared state than last time, I still freaked out a bit when they started taking my blood. I am not a fan of needles, so it took a lot to keep…

Slovakia Day 40 – Naps & Facebook Issues

Normally, I would write an intro paragraph here for all of my friends on facebook, but unfortunately for some reason I cannot access my facebook account. I have spent the last 4 hours + trying to get my account back online, but it has disappeared entirely.…
