I think I’m getting sick. My joints ache, I have a horrible cough and I feel like my head is going to explode from the pressure. Maybe I’m not getting sick, maybe I am sick, hmm? In any case, it’s lousy timing. I think I can safely say the next six weeks will be the most demanding of my entire grad school experience. There really is not time to be sick. Which is why, of course, I must get sick. That’s the way things work, right?
On another note, I wish the soda vendor would stop haphazardly stocking the soda machine at school. When I press the button for Diet Coke, I want Diet Coke. Some character has been filling the Diet Coke section with whatever diet soda product is available. Last Wednesday I got Diet Cherry Coke, tonight it was Diet Vanilla Black Cherry Coke. Bizarre. Then again, I do like surprises. The Diet Vanilla Black Cherry Coke (and I’m wondering if I’m getting that in the right order, because I didn’t even know it existed until today) was pretty good. Hmm… maybe it’s a magic soda machine that randomly makes up flavors! Perhaps next week I’ll get Diet Wild Berry Chocolate Cinnamon Coke! My stomach turns at the thought…
I have many thoughts to blog on, but I also have Washington Irving to read for tomorrow’s American Literature class. Believe me, I’d rather blog.
