There are two things about me that become very clear whenever I am feeling under the weather: 1. I have the worst immune system and 2. I am unreasonably dramatic. Now, due to my body’s lack of ability to fight off illness, when I get sick, I go hard. I mean sick-for-two-weeks-straight, look-like-deaths-awkward-cousin sick. Maybe my drama queen tendencies feed into this a little bit, but still. I consider this completely unfair.
This past week has been no exception. I started exams with a cold and painful sore throat that luckily healed TWO AND A HALF WEEKS LATER. After three full days of relative healthiness, I became sick again. Just my luck. Actually not just my luck because I hate when people say that (I mean as if the whole world is against ONLY THEM). But it was kind of cruel. Anyhow, due to the fact that I have literally nothing else to write about, I have decided to record my schedule from the past two days, to give you an idea of what it’s really like to be sick and dramatic at the same time.
9:00pm – Take Nyquil, tell self that no matter how sick/tired you are tomorrow, you will make use of free time. No TV, no sleeping, just homework.
6:15am – regular alarm goes off, immediately turn off in nyquil-drugged daze, forget you slept in basement and freak out for a second, then fall back asleep
7:49am – Wake up in panic due to realization you have slept in and are late for school. Run upstairs only to remember that you are sick and this was planned. Get water from kitchen to cover embarrassing mistake.
9:30am – Phone alarm goes off. Sleepily believe someone is calling you and attempt to answer your phone while it is ringing. Feel dumb and fall asleep, set alarm for 11:30.
11:30am – Alarm goes off, turn off
12:02 – Wake up to 3 missed calls and 2 texts from mom, who is wondering if you have died. Get up and take a shower.
12:30 – Decide to start homework. After
1:00 – Attempt to stick to New Year’s resolution to run every other day. Justify a walk instead.
1:45 – realize you forget what it feels like to breathe out of your nose, become frustrated trying. Fall asleep.
5:00 – Wake up and realized you’ve wasted the whole day. Read through SRP book to feel accomplished.
8:00 – Dayquil runs out and take Nyquil. Fall asleep.
