End of Quarantine: Cereal and Math Class and iPods, Oh My

So I don't feel flu-y at all anymore. I mean, I get sicker from the drugs they gave me than I do from anything else, really. But I stopped having fever over 24 hours ago, so they concluded I am free to roam about. I can't really go to classes yet because I get woozy/nauseous as hell from the Tamiflu, but it's nice to be able to go get my own dinner for once. I owe my roomie a shitton of money on her meal plan.

So my first venture was to the SUB to get some food. Got pierogies, but they were raped and blasphemed by being covered in some spicy sauce that made me want to vomit up my Tamiflu for the third time. So I ended up buying some cereal and ginger ale and calling it a day. Best decision of the day. I got Rice Krispies and Corn Flakes, in case anyone was wondering.

BUT! Downside of a week in bed: I am a week behind on my classes! \o/ Math class will be excellent plus exciting. I'm not a math lady. I think in words and pictures and music. Most definitely not numbers.

BUT! ANOTHER BUT! Upside: I got my iPod back. My beautiful, beautiful, green 16 gig iPod nano. The original's name was Todd. Todd the 'pod. Todd met is unfortunate fate when my water bottle upturned itself in my school bag, drenching his poor circuits. He died a dignified death. The water damage indicator didn't go off, so I sent that sucker in to be fixed under warranty. The result was a brand spankin' new 'pod to be named Rod. As in Rod the 'pod. Rod seems to be a cool dude. I'll keep you updated.

My Life in Quarantine

So, I was diagnosed with the flu yesterday. The regular kind, not the kind that involves kissing piggies. But still, it sucks. I knew something was up when I had a fever of 102 and couldn't stop shaking :(((((( So, my school decided that the best way to combat that is to quarantine me to my room. I guess it makes sense, but still, I'm pretty sure I'm going apeshit in here. It's only been a day and I'm ready to tear my hair out. Except I'm way too tired to follow through with it.

Awww, I just noticed my roommate left the remote for the TV on my desk. She's a sweetie. Anyway, I'm so hopped up on antibiotics right now. The reason I got this DW account is because
1. I have poor impulse control
2. I wanted something to do with my life while I can't really do much else (the parameters of my quarantine are that I can leave 24 hours after I stop having fever.)
3. I'm a journalism major. Blogging should be more natural to me than it is. I'm going to actually try this time.

So, when I think of more interesting things to say, I'll post'em. Until then, I'm going to be watching more NCIS and Gossip Girl on my computer. Ugh, life, you're so boring
