Y’all, I’m sick again. This time I have a cold — sore throat, head aching, sneezing, etc. I’m pretty sure I’m down for the count until spring. Basically, if I get sick once any time during the winter, my body lets down all its barriers and invites all viruses on in for a party. Wuss.
I spent most of yesterday feeling guilty about how I needed to be at school, but I couldn’t get going because my head felt like it was going to explode. The guilt overwhelmed me as I sat on the couch shivering and watching The Fugitive, because that is apparently the highlight of daytime TV. Let me tell you what; poor Harrison Ford was innocent, and that ruthless Tommy Lee Jones was in the wrong, you guys.
I finally made it to school, mainly because I had a paper due. I turned it in, sat through half of a class, and then went home because of all the Kleenex and sinus pressures and hallucinations.
My theology professor was talking about eschatology (the end times) last night, and all I could think about was how badly my head hurt and how it was a literal four degrees outside, and how finals week is around the corner. So yes, it probably is the end times. I can think of no greater tribulation.
I hope you all know that I never exaggerate.
If you’re looking for something at all useful to read, I suggest heading over to the Boundless blog. I wrote a post yesterday, and there are lots of other great bloggers who have more to talk about than which flavor of Airborne they prefer (grapefruit).
I also suggest watching this video by Matisyahu. Who is Matisyahu, you ask? Well, he’s a Hasidic Jewish rapper of course. This video will get you in the Hanukkah spirit.
OK, that’s it. I’m going to blow my nose. Have a great day!
