So today I woke up and genuinely felt like I was dying. I’m not going to give you any of the gross details but I’ll start by saying I started my morning at an unholy hour emptying the contents of my stomach. I then proceeded to spend the next 6 to 7 hours drifting in and out of sleep, going from hot to cold and every movement was sore and heavy.
At 2 I managed to drag myself downstairs to refill my hotwater bottle and got chatting to my room mate (who’s the best person ever and is always looking after me ❤ ) and she made me feel a little better.
So with that, I decided to join her at the kitchen table for some breakfast and study. (She was doing hardcore physics, I was doing geology… I hardly think they’re comparable) and it honestly made me feel great! I was really enjoying reading the lectures and it gave me something to concentrate on which took my mind off how crap I felt, despite the cramps and general crappy feeling everywhere.
Next thing I know it’s 8 o clock and I get made dinner and off we go again. I don’t think I’ve ever been so motivated when I was sick. But hey, getting a friendly reminder that yesterday marked exactly three months to exams is a pretty dam good motivator. It really puts the fear into you when you’re 4 months behind your work… And that’s a dam scary thought right there. But I felt great after today, I’m hitting my stride with study and today was the first day I felt my time was well spent. So fingers crossed I just might make it into third year after all.
And to top it all off I have so much to look forward to (and be nervous about). College ball coming up, my mam’s birthday, my 21st, going to Scotland, going to Cork, going to the zoo for college. All great things 🙂 Plus, I’ve gotten my t-shirt so now I’ve the full set of trackies for trampolining 😀
So despite being sick and feeling worse than I have in about 3 years, today ended on a good note and I’m feeling pretty good with myself. Now to just hope my dress fits for this ball!
