looks like someone has a case of the monday's
not unlike the rest of the world, i seem to have caught a brutal cold. i thought i had conquered the inevitable post-frosh week downfall of my immune system in record time, recovering from my previous battle in less than a week, however, i appear to have relapsed and i'm starting to get the feeling that i'm in this for the long haul. i got very little sleep last night, as my throat is so sore and swollen that i find it hard to breathe. i sound like a man, ache all over, am rocking double ear aches and have fierce stomach cramps to boot.
i'm glad i got up early so that i could at least shower. those who know me best, know that i don't especially like to shower and don't do so on a daily basis like most people. this isn't gross because 1) i rarely exert myself enough to sweat and 2) i have healthy hair and great skin, therefore i don't want to push my luck. not to mention that my hair is usually an investment that i'm not willing to wash down the drain. those who live with me know that i rarely shower in the morning and generally prefer the most random times of the day to clean myself. needless to say, i MUST be ill if a morning shower is in order.
i have to go to work and class, and am hoping to get myself feeling as top notch as possible so that i can enjoy nathan's birthday [happy birthday nathan!]. i figured the best way to get my day off to a good start would be by having a great breakfast. i'm totally craving egg whites. unfortunately, on saturday night, the entire cupboard/fan/lighting unit above the stove fell off the wall [and onto me], and is presently perched precariously on top of my stove, so eggs are not an option.
i'm trying to be optimistic about today.
i like to get monday's off to a bright start. but seriously, my head hurts, my stomach feels like crap and i can't even cheer myself up with eggs. instead, i get to go to work [it's garbage can cleaning day] and then class and then the library to do math. hmpf.
on a brighter note, my new hair straightener works great and nathan seemed to like his first birthday presents.
