Trying to recoup, but failing.

Four days later and you’d think that I’d be feeling somewhat better, or that my cold would’ve gotten better. Wrong! After losing my voice on Saturday, I still had a sore throat to deal with on Sunday, which later on turned into wheezy breathing, and hacking. Monday was pretty much the day of death, since I couldn’t sit sit (my body ached), my head felt like it was going to explode, and I coughed up a few pieces of my lungs.

All that aside I finally managed to get the latest Harry Potter book yesterday and spent the whole day (3pm and after) reading it. I tried to stop, I really did, but I just did not want to go to sleep without finishing the book. So at 2am I ended up calling it quits and went to sleep. Not bad considering that I take maybe a few breaks that knocked off 2 hours there. All I have to say about the book is I will be ripping out the epilogue to blow my snotty nose on.

This entire week however, I am making it my duty to swim from 11:30-1pm. Not only will it just help me feel better by swimming some laps, but I’ll get a decent tan. Monday was some pinkness on my chest, shoulders, face and back. Though my arms always take to the sun really well. They’re a golden brown/tan right now, so I guess that’s a start 😛

I’ve been trying to stay up today, but I’ve felt so useless and exhausted that I have been sleeping on and off. I think I may have to cave in and actually take some medicine. I have this belief that unless I am absolutely dying and in the hospital, I do not take medicine other than aspirin. Who knows why, but it’s been like that for a few years now.

*runs off to try to feel accomplished* Oh and day 2 of no Mark 🙁 Only 4 more days to go.


  1. Hey there Jordan. Sorry to hear your not feeling great still, but some swimming should do the trick. Haha, and consider yourself lucky – I either stay pale white or burn like a biyatch. 😛

  2. Man, I feel for you. I have sore throats like Britney Spears has meltdowns. I have an uneven tan so my feet are white-ish, my legs are dark brown, my thighs are white, my stomach is white, and my neck up is brown. That’s what I get for not going swimming in a long time…

  3. Aww I do hope that you’ll feel better soon 🙂
    I usually don’t swim between 11am and 3pm because of the bad bad sun we have in Malta. I get a tan if I swim even at 5pm so.. :S

  4. That’s a long time to swim. I bet your cold will feel better after getting exercise. I don’t usually take cold medicine because it knocks me out, lol, making me feel worse. Good luck with it!

  5. Eh, you’re not well, you need rest. Put down your book, go sleep. *shoos* Heh, glad you tan nicely, though. I turn grey when I tan… so I usually choose to stay out of the sun even though I really enjoy swimming. Ah well, indoor pools here I come.

  6. You should think about that you will be ok very soon, don’t think too much about bad things – thoughts can create and improve our health. Believe in You
