Great White Snark

Sunday, September 4, 2011

I am sick. This happens every year at this time without fail, and has since I was in pre-k. I think going back to school just exposes me to a TON of germs and then I get sick. Awesome.

My classes are going well. Actually, Editing is my hardest one. If I wasn't in that class, this would be my dream semester. As it stands, I AM in that class and unpleasant though it may be, it's probably the most useful as far as careers go (unless I want to become a pirate. Then my pirate class would be much more useful.).

Luckily though, I've managed to stay on top of my work and reading. I have a LOT of reading this semester, which is fine by me. My Gothic lit novels have been highly entertaining so far, and actually, the reading for my history class hasn't been terrible either. My Editing textbook, however, is the most egregiously boring thing I've had to read since What Maisie Knew (sorry, Henry James, but your story about a little girl caught in the middle of an early 20th century divorce did NOTHING for me). But again...useful information. Just boring to digest. Kind of like salad.

What's nice is that I have the long weekend and Tuesday off to recover. So I hope I start feeling slightly more human by Wednesday. All I can hope is that it doesn't become bronchitis, which frequently happens within my crappy, pneumatic/asthmatic lungs. I'd like a new set of lungs for Christmas...this has also been true since pre-k.

So anyway, TL;DR: I feel like crap, I have until Wednesday to try and get better, and my life is pretty much the same as always. Which means I read.

Oh, I did have a total pity party this afternoon, because both my parents and my brother were out on dates today (my parents with each other, mind you), and I was at home going through boxes of tissues, watching stupid Youtube videos, and drinking OJ like it was my duty.

Usually I don't get bummed about my lack of a personal life...I usually enjoy it. But sometimes, y'know.

In case you were wondering, that was not an invitation for you to ask me out. I will say no.
