Knee Injury

It has been a few days since my last post. Nothing too exciting has happened. I feel that I should tell you that I have injured my knee. On Wednesday, we went to play ultimate frisbee. I always look forward to this day. It is a time to have fun, exercise, and meet new people. The game was going well, with both teams equally matched. Towards the last part of the game, I went for the frisbee in the end zone and I landed straight on my leg, which caused my knee to strain. I fell to the ground and grabbed my knee. After awhile, I needed to get up. I sat down on a bench for some time, while I rested. I am not exactly sure what I has happened to my knee. Maybe I hyperextended it or it could be a sprain. Since, this day I have limped around, trying not to put pressure on my knee.

I spoke with our music director, who not only has a doctorate in Music, but is also a medical doctor. She has told me that I need to take ibuprofen and rest. She doesn’t think it’s that bad because I don’t feel excruciating pain and I am able to move around with ease. On Thursday, I became slightly depressed because this means I will need to stay off my leg for a while. Many of the activities outside of school revolve around sports, such as tennis, ultimate frisbee, volleyball, and running. I can’t even go on the weekly Hash House Harriers run!!!!!!! I will not be able to participate in these activities until I am healed. For this weekend, I have checked out two movies. I will pretty much stay in bed and watch movies.

Last night, the teachers and staff at ASOY were invited to attend a reception at the ambassador’s house. How amazing is that? We talked and dined with the staff of the embassy as well as several Cameroonian officials. The ambassador’s house is gigantic and definitely well guarded. I have heard great things about the work he has done so far. I can imagine you, Terrenda, in the same position one day!! During the ambassador’s speech, he recognized the wonderful work teachers do and thanked us.

School is going well. I didn’t walk around much the last two days because of the knee problem. The students were very helpful. A few of them went down to the Canteen (cafeteria) to get my lunch and a bag of ice. We are currently reading the book In the year of the Boar and Jackie Robinson, completing a research project on the planets (which one of the students suggested we do) and they are completing a 3-D model of their homes for Monday. So, as you can see, there are a lot of exciting things going on.

Well, I wanted to add a post to let everyone know what’s going on. I’m not sure if I will do too many things this weekend. So, don’t be shocked if you do not see a post with some fantastic experience. However, keep checking back at the site. I really do appreciate everyone reading the blog and staying on top of the things I am doing here in Yaounde

Hello. Prompt how to get acquainted with the girl it to me to like. But does not know about it
I have read through one history
Each of you has your personal story; it is your history. Keeping a diary or writing your feelings in a special notebook is a wonderful way to learn how to think and write about who you are -- to develop your own identity and voice.

People of all ages are able to do this. Your own history is special because of your circumstances: your cultural, racial, religious or ethnic background. Your story is also part of human history, a part of the story of the dignity and worth of all human beings. By putting opinions and thoughts into words, you, too, can give voice to your inner self and strivings.

A long entry by Anne Frank on April 5, 1944, written after more than a year and a half of hiding from the Nazis, describes the range of emotions 14-year-old Anne is experiencing:

". . . but the moment I was alone I knew I was going to cry my eyes out. I slid to the floor in my nightgown and began by saying my prayers, very fervently. Then I drew my knees to my chest, lay my head on my arms and cried, all huddled up on the bare floor. A loud sob brought me back down to earth, and I choked back my tears, since I didn't want anyone next door to hear me . . .

"And now it's really over. I finally realized that I must do my school work to keep from being ignorant, to get on in life, to become a journalist, because that's what I want! I know I can write. A few of my stories are good, my descriptions of the Secret Annex are humorous, much of my diary is vivid and alive, but . . . it remains to be seen whether I really have talent . . .

"When I write I can shake off all my cares. My sorrow disappears, my spirits are revived! But, and that's a big question, will I ever be able to write something great, will I ever become a journalist or a writer? I hope so, oh, I hope so very much, because writing allows me to record everything, all my thoughts, ideals and fantasies.

"I haven't worked on Cady's Life for ages. In my mind I've worked out exactly what happens next, but the story doesn't seem to be coming along very well. I might never finish it, and it'll wind up in the wastepaper basket or the stove. That's a horrible thought, but then I say to myself, "At the age of 14 and with so little experience, you can't write about philosophy.' So onward and upward, with renewed spirits. It'll all work out, because I'm determined to write! Yours, Anne M. Frank

For those of you interested in reading some of Anne Frank's first stories and essays, including a version of Cady's Life, see Tales From the Secret Annex (Doubleday, 1996). Next: Reviewing and revising your writing
