I'm in a shitty place, mentally, at the moment and its really fucking with my shit.
Is this connected to any particular circumstances that you can identify (and that you might hopefully be able to exercise some control over)? I remember you had a problem with the hostel.
In any event, I'll use my wishing powers to wish you the best.
Sorry to hear about this. Have you considered therapy?
As for me.. I'm sick as fuck. Head is pounding. Anyone ever fly with a cold/flu/sinus infection? The cabin air pressure difference (only when you're descending, strangely) causes IMMENSE pain in your sinuses. On a scale of 0-10, with 10 being shot in the stomach or being burned alive, this pain was at least a 6, if not a 7. I mean, it was fucking debilitating.
It felt like someone was drilling a pick axe into my forehead and twisting and churning it around.
You could also feel the pressure buildup inside 'drift' around.. so it started around my nose/forehead area, and then it traveled to my right ear. Fucking felt like my ear drum was going to explode.
I immediately stopped doing work and just shed a couple tears from all the pain. It was terrible. Miserable. Ugh.
Apparently it's called aerosinusitis (http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Aerosinusitis).
On the bright side, my manager said I could come in at noon tomorrow, so yay!
Edit: and I'm getting decimated by the stock market.. Oh JOY!
stay strong, my fun travelling brother!
stay strong, my racist p.o.s. of a brother!
so yesterday was our 12th wedding anniversary. me and the wife met up in this nice french place, and I was terribly hungry. she had the veal kidney, I had the duck confit. and we also shared a steak tartare. and I'm not sure if I ate too fast or the food was disagreeable but I spent the night writhing in pain, throwing up and repeat until 2 in the morning. hmmm.... then again, I guess its better than 12 years ago, during the wedding party my father got so drunk and I had to worry about bringing my family home.
Thank you kind sir. I've just been a walking black cloud lately. Everywhere I go shitty things seem to happen. I can't shake the bastard either.
That sounds particularly unpleasant. I've had the reverse with scuba diving. Not at all fun.
Had this happen when I flew with Tonsilitis. Not fun at all.
I do this twice a week. :/
Are you suffering from laryngitis when you do it? If so, I'm very keen to hear how you make it through. I'm really worried I'm not going to make it.
EDIT to add that I shouldn't have yelled when Carlos Beltran hit his second home run for the Cardinals tonight. I didn't do it on purpose.
My laptop screen won't turn on. It would flicker just a bit just to show its on, showing the Windows logo but the screen would go black.
I can hear the hard disk spinning so I know everything else works. I asked a friend if he had a spare monitor I can borrow till my laptop stops working which he has but hasn't let me know when I can borrow it. I can get it repaired but I can pay a little extra and buy a second hand laptop newer than the one I have. Just as I thought I can buy myself a new TV, my laptop stops working.
Ugh, today is going to be a particularly long day.
Had to pick up the gf from a train station 1,5 hours drive away last night, when she came back from a weekend in Paris. Although I love to have her back home, the 4 hours total spend last night were directly subtracted from my sleep, making me tired and not really in the mood for shit today.
Unfortunately my md seems to have a week in which he is even less able than normal to function, giving out random requests for information and generally just fucking up my workflow. Nothing more annoying than a person who is in charge that thinks he is being smart, then just falls flat on his face when you call him out on his bullshit and consequently gets even more erratic in his behavior.
I really, REALLY hope the other job offer comes through one of these weeks...
Socratic or Harkness an option?
Well I don't know I have a soft voice and I don't teach to more than 2x students at a time (I don't use a mic though). I get a little sore sometimes but I always drink water.
I actually suffered a ruptured ear drum from that situation.
I've done it. The landing was quite horrid as you said. It was rather like you forgot to swallow or open your jaw. At one point I couldn't hear anything and I thought it couldn't actually get any worse but it turned out we were still not on final approach.
I washed my two thickest/chunkiest sweaters last night and realized I have nowhere to dry them....
All of my clean towels have been completely soaked through and these things are too heavy for any sort of makeshift drying rack. One is now sitting on my kitchen counter and the other is sitting on my last remaining towel on the hardwood floor (which is bad since the towel is damp all of the way through but I've got no other safe surfaces to leave it on).
Had been considering washing two other sweaters...glad I didn't.
