Physically Ill

Well, it should come as no surprise that, on the evening of the day on which I wrote my last journal entry, my throat started to feel sore. I did manage to get up early and observe a class at a high school yesterday morning (one of my remaining end-of-year duties). When I came home, I went almost directly to bed and stayed there for an hour. Then I got up, made lunch, and went back to bed for another 1.5 hours.

Last night I slept for 10 hours. My throat is still bothering me, but hopefully it won't be as uncomfortable tonight as it was last night.

This is the third time that I have gotten sick this academic year. My prior pattern had been not to get sick at all, or maybe just once.

I'm a minor player as a scholar. My students don't appreciate my teaching very much. I'm a failure. I need to focus on my private life and go through the motions enough to continue to draw a salary, unless the department implodes and I find myself unemployed.

For now, I guess I'll just get some reading done and focus on my annual report.
