Case Study: Homo Sapien Progressing from Snots to Coughing

I am feeling less congested today, but it has progressed into a bit of a cough…. That is usually the beginning of the end for me though, so I hope to be done with this cold soon. This weekend I have to whip up a Lab Report for Chem, a short essay for Senior Seminar, and that’s about it (fortunately). I need to cool down this weekend and get a bit of relaxation, because this was a stressful week.

Ran some errands this morning, nothing too exciting. Had some Taco Bell for lunch, which was cool. I used to eat a lot more Taco Bell back “in the day”, but haven’t had much of it lately (which isn’t a bad thing). The good news is that the Rochester bell that usually completely bones up my order got it completely correct today! In fact, my general bad luck with getting my order screwed up at any eating establishment seems to have been suspended lately.

The white zone is for loading and unloading only

I have been studying for my Calc exam most of the morning, and I feel pretty good about it, but I tend to choke on those exams, so I am still really nervous. Wish me luck!

I have taken some Comtrex for this cold I have, I woke up this morning with far too much snot in my head. But Comtrex has me feeling a bit dizzy, so I will switch over to Dayquil when this stuff expires (just before my exam). I always seem to get a cold or ill before big exams, Jon and I were talking, and it must be some kind of psychosomatic response; I wish it didn’t occur. :P


I feel like shit. I called one of my profs and asked if it was a gigantic deal if I missed class today, and he said no. Anyway, I guess this gives me a bit more time to work on Calc, which I will need with this cold. :P


I have been fighting a little cold since the first time I visited Chris’ house, I think I caught it from her mother… Nothing bad, but the phlegm factor is a little annoying today..

Yesterday, I spent alot of the day catching up on the First Season of The Sopranos. I got the DVD Box Set for Christmas, and it is beautiful (especially in Widescreen)…. I watched the first 8 episodes yesterday, and I hope to finish the remaining 5 before I leave.

I am supposed to meet up with an old friend who I haven’t seen in years today, since well-before I left for RIT… Should be fun..

survey says….

so my interview didn’t go wonderfully yesterday, but I don’t consider it a disaster either. I was ill, and nervous, and I stumbled on a few questions and simply didn’t know the answers to others. That could have also been the point, to see how I dealt under pressure, so… So it goes… They are going to get back to me by Monday to let me know if they want to fly me out. If all else fails, I can always apply again. :)

This plague that I have come down with is really slowing me down both productivity and thought wise. I hope it passes soon, because I don’t need the slowdown right now. :)
