I can’t think of an appropriate title for this entry, because it’s going to cover several things.
First, the Sudafed 12-hour that my dorm neighbor got for me at the store is working miracles. I’m still coughing and kind of snotty, but it has backed off considerably. I’ve also been able to cough up a small amount of crud – it shows every sign of infection, which is unfortunate, but at least I’m drying it up and getting some of it out. The NP? Wasn’t in SHS today. Which is what happened every time I needed help last year, too. So I’m going to have to put up with this until next week, when she may or may not be there again. Hopefully I’ll be feeling better by this weekend, and that won’t be necessary.
Second, I’m withdrawing from my Honors Philosophy class. I’ve tried to write a post about it several times, but what it comes down to is that I can’t handle the professor’s attitude. I own it, I know it’s probably an immature thing to think/say/do. I’m okay with that, especially given that this is the guy that told me to shut up because he was tired of hearing my viewpoint last fall. In class. Yep. Sorry, but I don’t want to dread going to a class that I don’t need to take.
I’m down to 15 hours at this point, but that’s still full-time, and that’s still enough to keep me on track. I’m going to sign up for a night class next term (once Opera is over) to get me back up to 18 hours for this semester, and get one of my required classes out of the way more quickly.
I thought I had more to say, but I guess I don’t. I’m going to go read a bit of the news, then head to the registrar for that withdrawal form before my anthropology class.
Maybe I’ll be more exciting this evening. I’m still feeling a little “blech”, but I can tell that I’m getting better.
P.S. – garlic capsules give you gas.
