One of my biggest pet peeves is being sick. Wednesday night, I was feeling fine, but then you sleep through the night and catch something. Thursday morning, I was sniffling, coughing, sneezing, and I had to pop some DayQuil to keep the symptoms at bay. I called in sick, because even though my symptoms were kept in check, the problem was that I was in a confined space with four other guys, plus everyone and their dog comes into the room to talk to one of us so it would have eventually gotten out. And being that this is a new job, I don’t want to piss off the team by getting them all sick, too.
The problem with being sick is having to deal with all the crap that comes with it. Also, I hate staying in bed longer than is needed for sleep, when I know I could be up and doing stuff that needs to be done. Hell, if I could get away with not sleeping at all, that would be awesome for me! I would work and then write, and maybe code a little, or learn a new skill. I think that would be very cool.
Anyway, this morning I woke up after taking Thursday and Friday off and I didn’t feel as congested as I had before. I think I have this thing licked, finally.
