It’s one week into the semester and I’m already feeling a nasty cold coming on.
I think I got it from my roommate. [She was snoring the other night.] Or it could be the stress from memorizing the entire skeleton and trying to figure out electric fields and Coulomb’s law.
Either way, I’m [getting] sick.
I rolled out of bed at 7:03, after being unceremoniously awakened at 4:40 am by my roommate ferociously ringing the doorbell. [question: why were you up at 4:40 in the am? And why would you ever want to wake me up like that?] my ears are clogged, head aching, nose running, and throat sore.
Breakfast consisted of frozen strawberries and oj. I don’t really get hungry when I am sick. I even did one physics homework problem before my 9 o’clock class. [this is a feat on a regular day. I hate studying before 9 am.]
My first class was thankfully interesting [mostly because we were on the indoor track so I could watch the women’s track team practice while simultaneously laughing at the volunteer from our class run.]
I was looking forward to work, hoping it would be slow. I could relax a little, eat my apple and celery, and maybe even work on a physics problem or two. Not happening. We are stinkin’ busy. So I sit here, nibbling at my tasteless, dry apple slices [you know the kind where you can barely tell it’s a fruit?] and wonder if I can allow myself a small nap between work and my 5 o’clock class. Probs not.
But they say attitude heals the cold. Or something like that. Good things about today [hump day I might add]: only having two classes. I have a three hour break between work and class. Father is bringing me out drugs this evening. Today is the “eve” of a very exciting day [Thursday obvi. . .] I even have a countdown chain made. I finally got Gilmore Girls season 3 (thanks Hil!).
Ps. I know people read this blog [maybe] but comments are allowed and encouraged. If you think my blog is boring, how can I make it more exciting?
