I’ll Be Back, I Promise

I blame the lack of updates on A) being sick; B) being done with Spring semester; C) being lazy in general.

However, I promise that I’ll have more interesting things to talk about shortly here. Field session has started, which should provide me with quite a bit of fodder.

Until then, carry on as per normal.

Sick and Finals

I’m come down with a rather nasty cold (or something, crossing my fingers for cold though). It’s been really bad today and yesterday, so I’m hoping that I’m reaching the peak of this thing and will be back in full force for next week.

Next week also happens to be the last week of school before finals. Four days of school, Friday off, and then finals on Saturday, Monday and Wednesday.

I think the good news about finals is that two of my classes are going to be 100% take home finals (Digital Logic and Engineering Circuit Analysis). Advanced Engineering Math is also going to have a take home section.

24 Hour Flu

I wasn’t feeling too good yesterday, was on the verge of a cold…or so I thought. My about 11pm, I was feeling like puking (which is not a good feeling). I hit the sack a little before 12 and had the worst sleep in years. By 6am, I was feeling rather hot. I took my temp and it hit 99.1° F, which is hot for me. My normal is 97.8° F, or there abouts. It was frustrating though because my body was fighting me going to bed…I think I was a little delusional (I thought I was Josh Lyman running the Santos/McGarry campaign from The West Wing).

I decided to cancel going to my makeup chem lab, which was frustrating because I need to find another time to make that up now. I ended up sleeping until 8ish and I went into the bathroom, turned the shower on, and sat in the tub and let it fill up. I ended up taking a micro nap in the tub. I’m not quite sure how long it was, but it was long enough for the hot water tank to refill with hot water again. I got out, and went back to bed in my easy chair and slept until a little before 11. When I got up, I was feeling much much better. No temp, a bit of a cough, but I should live to fight another day.
