Last week was fun. Tuesday: midterm. Wednesday: midterm. Thursday: presentation. Awesome. I haven’t had that much fun in a while. I didn’t really get any sleep on Tuesday night, and very little on Wednesday, so I’m blaming that on my current situation: I’m sick. It was weird. I was trying to study for my physics midterm, fell asleep for just 1-2 hours, got up and felt like utter crap. And I don’t mean I’m sick in a I have to blow my nose every 10 minutes kinda way. I’m sick in a my throat’s swollen, it hurts to swallow, have a dry cough – which also hurts, still have to blow my nose, can’t speak very loud, sometimes have a killer headache, and last night I woke up at 6:30am gasping for breath because I was choking on my own saliva kinda way. I’m not sure if I’m contagious, so if you see me, I suggest you run – faster than usual.
I don’t get sick very often, but when I do, it seems to hit me really hard. At the advice of a friend, I’m cutting up ginger root and making tea with it. I was surprised to discover the taste was rather pleasant – but it hasn’t done much to help my throat, so far. I hope this just cooperates and goes away so I can enjoy my long weekend a bit more… I don’t even feel like making anything because it’s so much effort to eat!
The midterms were pretty bad (definitely failed the physics one), but at least the presentation went ok.
