Remember that cold that I was dealing with a week ago? It got better. For about three days. And today, I am dying. I’m coughing my brains out, my nose is alternately congested and runny, my throat is sore, I’m utterly exhausted, and I can barely keep my eyes open. I think I was ready… Read More Doesn’t This Thing Ever Leave?
Yesterday I mentioned that I needed some time management skills with our radio station’s manager, and she gave me some advice that I took to heart. Her recommendation was to use an Android app that has, among other features, a 20/10 timer. When that’s activated, it will count down 20 minutes for you to do… Read More That Went Well
So yesterday I went to my algebra instructor to ask about the problem that basically had me losing a day’s worth of study to slightly irrational thoughts. He gladly welcomed me into his office, and I showed him the problem that I was having. We went through it together, and I couldn’t understand why I… Read More Foolish Mistake
I have a splitting headache all of a sudden and that’s making me more tired than I already am, so I’m writing just long enough to say that I’ll see you guys later.
Right now I’m in a headspace that I haven’t been in for some time. For starters, today has been spent unsuccessfully fighting a persistent, nagging, unproductive cough left over from the cold. I feel constantly just on the edge of a coughing fit that makes me dizzy and causes pain in my right shoulder during… Read More Perfect Storm
After taking off the weekend to recover from my cold, I dove back into schoolwork with both feet today. Algebra class went well, and even let out a little early, but for the first time I could not understand what was being covered in class. I’m chalking that up to the fast pace of the… Read More Back to School
Today I only had nagging cold symptoms, nothing bad, and I managed to catch a few naps during the day – probably good that I did, since I was up at 4:30 am for absolutely no reason whatsoever. It was a productive day. My wife and I split the workload to get a lot of… Read More Somewhat Back to Normal
I still have a cold. I’ve spent the day in and out of bed, although I was largely symptom-free until later in the evening. Which is good, because I’ve had to take care of my wife, who had to have a tooth pulled this morning. I like playing nursemaid to her, although she’s not fond… Read More From Patient to Nurse and Back Again
Once again, the day’s basically been lost to the cold. I haven’t really accomplished much of anything today except rest, and even that was sporadic. This is where I’d usually share some wisdom or insight that I have about life in general, and here is tonight’s tidbit. Don’t catch cold. I’m going to medicate myself… Read More Not Much Progress
The cold is getting worse. I feel mostly fine, just run down – but my voice is completely gone. I couldn’t do my radio show tonight because of it. I should have spent more time in bed today, although I didn’t really do that much today, so technically I took it easy. But I think… Read More Cold Report
