Wednesday, January 31st, 2007 • 1 Comment on In Case You Were Wondering How I Am
I had a minor computer glitch on Sunday that caused momentary panic—at least until I could get my sick computer into the Apple store on Monday. I was afraid my computer was suffering from post traumatic stress due to the horrible dropping incident of December, but the tech guy assured me that wasn’t the case. All is well again.
I woke up at 6:30 this morning and could not go back to sleep for over an hour. I felt like I was having a panic attack. Okay, panic attack is too strong a term. An early morning appointment with the anxiety department of my psyche is probably more accurate. I don’t know what that was about, but I hope to schedule future appointments later in the day.
Speaking of not being able to sleep, I’ve had this miserable dry cough for four days now and it wakes me up every couple of hours. I am horribly resistant to cough medicine of any kind (not physically resistant, I just hate taking the stuff), but I’m getting to the point where I’m considering taking something. Hopefully it’ll go away on its own and I will be able to sleep as peacefully as I ever sleep.
Singulair is a miracle drug for allergies. I can’t recommend it highly enough—especially if you’re like me and you’ve tried everything else and nothing works. It’s amazing.
Reading, writing, reading. That is my life these days—and, for the most part, I love it. I’m enjoying the reading in all my classes, but Feminist Thought is blowing my mind. I can’t even begin to describe how the reading is reshaping the way I think. It’s a good thing to have my mind blown once in awhile. It shakes me up and makes me realize I don’t know everything.
Speaking of feminists, Gloria Steinem is coming to
campus in March! I think hearing Gloria Steinem speak will be one of the highlights of my life. I’m so excited! I’m also shocked at the number of people (namely, young women) who don’t even recognize the name Gloria Steinem, much less understand her contributions to the women’s movement. It scares me, to be honest.
I’m still bubbling over with enthusiasm for this year, which is something considering January is just about over. Life is good, with minor glitches.
