My body can't handle grad school.

Maybe I should use my student loans to invest in a new one.

First, some housekeeping items:

1.) I made the GPOYW photo from my last entry into a new user icon. It was long overdue, as I hadn't created a new icon of myself since something like 2007. So in case you haven't been able to see any photos I've posted in the last three years, this is what I look like now!

2.) Welcome to the most recent additions to my friends list: dendren, freakanddorkin1, and geekygabe! And if I already welcomed you and forgot, well, just consider me your new jovial and forgetful LJ friend.

Now, on to recent stuff. I'm writing from Panera, where I am slowly but gleefully eating my first meal today. I'm not sure what happened, but last night and this morning I was dealing with a bout of food poisoning. Not sure what was the culprit: yogurt? chile beans? an apple? Can you really get food poisoning from an apple? Maybe I should have actually washed it. The catch-as-catch-can nature of eating while in grad school makes it difficult to pinpoint. Anyhow, I tried to go to bed after IMing with virga a bit and making my bed into a nest of warmth, but my stomach would not let me sleep.

I had to miss transportation class this morning because I'm pretty sure it's bad form to run out of the room clutching your stomach when your professor is trying to introduce the topic of trip generation. But I did finally get sleep, and was able to make it to school for 504 class this afternoon. I probably looked really shabby, but Katharine and Chris didn't seem to mind and we got all the way through our multiple regression assignment by the end of class as I tentatively ate Chex Mix. I really would like for this to not happen once a month. Maybe I should use my tax refund to get a new digestive system from Craigslist. I guess this would first require that I do my taxes.

All right, I'm going to continue on homework so that I don't get behind. I've almost reached the point of getting ahead in work several times this semester! If I could actually achieve that, I'd have a hell of a lot more time to obsess over internship applications.

running out of the room clutching your stomach is *much* better form than staying there and letting whatever comes next happen... just my opinion ;)

glad you are feeling better

Haha, too true. It's a nice auditorium and I try to avoid puking on it whenever possible.

Glad to be among the chosen. :-) And I love Panera. I don't have one here, which breaks my heart. Great place to do work.

You will prevail in grad school. I have foreseen it.

We have three here, so I'd happily give one up if it could be sent to you.

Thanks; I think I'll be fine, but I've had far too many illnesses in the last five months and that needs to stop.
