Current Location: on my fat ass
that breakfast club song
so if you didn't guess from the subject line, i'm sick. now here is the odyssey of my illness: i actually had a hint of something sunday morning, but green tea vanquished whatever that was. then monday night i began to feel not so good. i stayed up late talking to awesome people, against my better judgment, and 6 hours of sleep later, i was sick. at that point it was simply coughing with chest pain and a bit of a sore throat, which i probably could have gone to school with. but as long as i have a valid reason for absence, i will take it. so instead of suffering the monotonous, apathy-driven lifestyle at sheehan high, i slept until 12. i got up feeling decent and relaxed, only suffering from an occasional painful cough, which i could control pretty easily. then i started to freeze my ass off. i bundled up in two pairs of socks, two pairs of pants, two long sleeve shirts, a hoodie, and a winter hat and still felt chilly at times. my entire body started to ache as well. as i found out from matthew, who was also staying home with the same ailment, this meant a fever was imminent. and so fever came. and i realized that staying home from school had definitely been the right option. today i woke up feeling about the same. the coughing got worse for awhile, but now my chest cold is moving up to my head. according to matthew, soon i will be quite congested and unable to hear well because of the gross in my ears. i hate ear gross. i think my fever is subsiding as well. i cant really talk today. im very hoarse. im not sure yet if i'll be in school tomorrow. if i follow the matt forte schedule i'll take tomorrow off as well. but we will see how well green tea and vitamin c actually combat illness. until then, peace.
