Belated Post

Wow. I know i've been so MIA, but i truly do have good reason. Aside from my 7 classes, i've been struggling with this gosh darned cough for about a month now, and last night was the absolute worst. As i was getting ready for bed, i was suddenly unable to breathe, feverish, coughing up a storm, and then coughing so hard that i threw up. Ew!! I didn't even know that was possible! This went on for about 25 minutes, until i was finally able to quiet myself enough to fall asleep. Woken up again by my own coughing this morning, i called the University Health center AGAIN, spoke to a nurse who suggested i try "Claritin" (OBVIOUSLY I'VE TRIED CLARITIN), and finally convinced her to let me see a doctor. Went in, waited forEVER, and left 1 1/2 hours later with 3 new prescriptions. 2 inhalers and 1 nasal spray thingy. I see Dr. Day again in 2 weeks. I hope i can breathe by then.

In better news, my apartment is near done, and i'm tickled pink (literally)! My bedroom is a soothing light green (Grecian Green by Benjamin Moore), and in my living room is a hot pink accent wall (Pink Corsage by Benjamin Moore). I have pale pink bookshelves in my "office", a pretty blue/pink Shabby Chic bathroom, and a ginormous closet which has yet to be organized. I am LOVING this space.

Have not journaled, read, or dabbled in any creative "work" since moving back to Austin. It feels wrong, oh so wrong. I plan to get back into it ASAP, otherwise i am sure to lose whatever semblance of sanity i'm currently maintaining.

Hate all my classes. Hate school. Hate being a student.

Time to go inhale. XOXO
