3 Day Weekend

This weekend I was lucky enough to get a 3 day weekend. Saturday was the Dragon Boat Festival so there wasn't school. I wasn't able to go out though because the first day of my 3 day weekend, I ended up getting the stomach flu. Its Sunday night and I still feel sick. We pretty much just hungout at our apartment all weekend. We went out tonight though to meet up with a friend that just came into Taiwan. Our parents sent a care package with her, so we went and picked it up and also ate dinner with some of her family. While over there, they told us about a chiropractor that was nearby, so we thought we would go get our backs and necks popped to try and fix us. For the past 2 years, I've been getting headaches almost everyday. I thought I'd try out a chiropractor to see if popping my neck and back would help. So far it has felt a lot better. After popping everything, he used an Asian technique called gua sha, which is where they scrape parts of the body to help heal those areas. In my case, he scraped my neck with a tool to help with my headaches. It was quite painful, and this was the outcome.

He did this to both sides of my neck.

After the chiropractor, we went out to the night market.
