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.
