I am not sure how I managed this, but I have gotten sick twice within one month. As of right now, I’m sitting in my bed instead of saying blasphemous things in my Bible as Literature class, which I would much rather be in. My body has betrayed me. It feels weak and heavy. I was having a lot of trouble breathing yesterday, and a constant headache has plagued me for the last two days. It has been a long time since I’ve gotten sick enough to stay home, and it’s already happened twice in the last month. In the beginning of February, I developed a very quick sore throat. This time around, I started coughing on Monday. It developed into a hacking sort of coughing on Tuesday, then on Wednesday my nose got into the mix. Over all, I look as terrible as I feel. I have zero appetite, though I’m forcing myself to eat. It hardly matters whether I eat, as I can’t taste anything anyway. I had a slice of pizza last night and it just tasted like cardboard.
Ah, well. Perhaps I was long over due for bed rest anyway. I don’t sleep nearly as much as I need to. I’d forgotten how awful it is to be this sick though. I am occasionally plagued by the sniffles, or a headache, but I haven’t been so overwhelmed in a while.
Tall and tan
and young and lovely
the girl from Ipanema goes walking
and when she passes
each one she passes goes “aahhh”
when she walks its like a samba that swings so cool and sways so gently
that when she passes each one she passes goes “aaahhh”
ohhh but he watches so sadly
how can he tell her he loves her
yes, he would give his heart gladly
but each time when she walks to the sea
she looks straight ahead not at he
Beautiful song. Even prettier in Portuguese.
I feel so weak that I almost feel like I’m floating.
My mother suggested something very odd to me. She called me fairly late last night. It was perhaps around 11 p.m. She wanted to know if I was serious about San Francisco State, and if so, she wanted to know around when I would go there so she could start looking for an apartment for me. THEN she suggested that David could be my roommate if he was going up there too. Very odd. He and I have been dating for just two months by now, and she’s only met him twice. But apparently she likes him enough, or feels he’s trustworthy enough.
