Clouds Light the Through

Yet coffee have I not had enough of for today.


Keep what, seriously, to say you’re to yourself going.

Coffee I’m lacking, remember.

Pretty won’t be it.

An Update

Brighter Days

So, yeah, I know. It’s been a while. The viral infection has been kicking my ass for the past 3 to 4 weeks. I am finally getting close to feeling 100%. And on top of that I tweaked my left calf muscle just above the Achilles tendon. So I’ve been limping for the last 4 or 5 days.

Yes, it’s all rather pathetic.

That being said, I’ve been doing all I can to catch up on my school work. I was a couple weeks behind in one class and barely managing to keep up with the other. Hence the dearth of posts.

However! Today I awoke to my calf muscle not bitching, my gut finally starting to feel less volatile, and my body not quite aching above and beyond old age. Also, I’ve gotten caught up on all but a few discussion posts – which will be finished tonight.

The sun is starting to come out from behind the clouds.

Education Update

Now that I’ve finally gotten past the viral infection that knocked my out for the last 4 weeks I’ve been able to concentrate on my school work. Thankfully I was able to keep up with my Introduction to Abnormal Psychology class. I even managed to do well on my last exam. However, I did miss a quiz for one of my chapters.

Where I really struggled was in my Science Fiction and Fantasy class. Where the Psychology class was just reading and test taking, the SciFi/Fantasy class is writing intensive. And I was sleeping 10 to 12 hour days and still feeling exhausted and drained. And because writing is much more demanding than reading and test taking for me, I put that class off.

Thankfully I have an understanding instructor who was willing to give me more time for my late assignments. I have finished two of them, and have just one more to go. My plan is to be caught up before the weekend is done.

However, it turns out I’m still pressed for time as my Psychology class has two chapters due next week!


Feeling Better


I actually was feeling better yesterday. However, there were lingering symptoms. My stomach was still gurgling a bit and I was feeling tired, though not exhausted. Today? I can tell already that my gut is finally finished with whatever hit it Thursday. So much so that I’m contemplating a run in this mornings rain. I’ll let you know if that happens.

Sick Again

Yeah, yeah, I know. Two posts in a row about being sick. They are quite a few days apart. And to be honest, I did get a few runs completed in between these posts.

Anyway, I must have eaten something bad on Thursday because at noon my stomach instantly became upset. And not only that but I also experienced aches and the chills. I managed to make it from the dining room at work to the bathroom where I began the process of completely emptying out my intestinal track. After three more trips to the bathroom at work and feeling so miserable I thought I’d pass out I decided to go home.

In case you’re wondering – yes I was worried about not making it home, or to a gas station bathroom. Thankfully I’d already emptied out most of the contents of my gut. I only needed one more trip to the bathroom when I got home.

After that I have spent all my time laying on the couch, or in bed. My colon was so sensitive I couldn’t let the cats lay next to me on the couch. I also slept 13 or so hours each day – during the day! Even now I am exhausted after sleeping soundly throughout the night.

I was able to eat yesterday with only minimal grumbling from my gut. And I don’t have the need to empty it immediately. Yet my colon is still sensitive. That and I feel I could sleep the rest of the day away still. However, it’s time for me to get off my ass and get some homework done, some lectures listened to, and some shopping to do.

So, with that said, wish me luck as I foray into the world.
