My brain is out of commission today. It’s been out of commission for 11 days, actually, and it’s becoming a nuisance.
I hate being sick. I have often applauded my immune system for cycling through illnesses like a Tour De France champ. But 11 days is a bit ridiculous and everything has taken a beating because of it:
- My emotions. They go to the extreme! When I’m happy I’m REALLY happy…and when I’m sad I’m REALLY sad. It wasn’t a good idea, by the way, to finish the 7th Harry Potter book this week. There were too many emotional moments blown way out of proportion.
- My sleeping habits. I find myself catching so many random bits of sleep throughout the day that I end up tossing and turning at night. I’m a connoisseur of sleep, dammit! That’s not supposed to happen to me!
- My patience. I already have very little patience for stupidity as it is, but being surrounded daily by the idiots that share an educational institution with me is a constant reminder of stupidity’s existence. And don’t even get me started on my fellow drivers…
- But my brain, as I previously mentioned, has received most of the abuse. I seem to have misplaced a lot of my intelligence these past 11 days. I got a C on a history test I could have easily received an A on, I wrote a horrible in-class essay for my English class, and I’m doing a very poor job of writing anything intelligent in this post. And for that, I am truly sorry.
I will leave you with this slice of fun:
Monday I noticed a bit of wall graffiti in my International Relations class. It read: ANDREW HAS UNEVEN EYEBROWS, and it was accompanied by a large, yet simplistic, drawing of one arched brow and one flat brow. Now anytime I see anyone at my school with similar brows, I consider whether they might possibly be Andrew. Maybe I will try shouting out the name next time to see if I get a response.
