Keep your distance

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.


  1. So… much… effort… to… eat. Hm, I’m so glad you agree with me! Even if it’s just a temporary-sick-time-only agreement. Well, just think of it as… that’s how I think even when I’m not sick. 😀

    Man, you must’ve had a tough, tough week. Lots of people got sick this past little while… and I did too. I hope I wasn’t the reason that you are sick. I know I’m most likely the reason why Dez’s sick.

    Your illness sounds quite a bit more serious than what I know… but yeah, I STILL have that dry cough, after 2+ weeks. I wonder if it’s some sorta bacteria infection… maybe I should look into some antibiotics.

  2. antibiotics? Shyaarii became Tetsuo because of antibiotics.

    This kind of illness is accumulative. It’s good that it happens now than later.
