Wow, the last time I updated was August. It's strange. I guess I feel that I don't have much to say.

But things have happened. I completed my degree, applied - and was accepted to - some PhD programs, and am now considering moving to what would be my third state of residence. [Details left intentionally blank.] I've been to New York for a conference, been moving back and forth between my home town and my current place to do some work for my family's business, dropped in and out of a sort-of relationship, and -


You know, it's weird. I'm content to let these things happen and not really talk about them much. What do people talk about with each other? I relate best to people I can argue with.

Anyway, this is just a heads up that I'm still alive, and still around, even though I can be pretty negligent with checking my friends list. A couple people have asked if I'm okay - yeah, I'm okay. Maybe I'll start posting more, or maybe I'll just lurk, only to appear when SOMEONE IS WRONG.

I am alive. Kind of.

I decided to spend the entire winter break with my family and friends in my hometown. It was hectic and overwhelming and Life Stuff happened. Then as soon as I got back, I was thrown headfirst into two major research projects and miscellaneous assignments because none of my professors this semester believe in easing you into it.

And I started playing Sims again, which means... well.

I have no words for how exhausted I am.

I'm still sick, which naturally makes me more tired. I've been struggling to stay awake through the day, because I know that if I take a nap it will only disrupt my sleep.

Then when it's finally bedtime, I can't sleep because I keep choking on mucus.

I think I'm going to have to go give in and have an extra coffee this afternoon. I usually avoid drinking coffee after lunch, but I have so much work to do and I feel like I'm going to collapse. Fine, Starbucks, you can have more of my money. Maybe this time I'll get some coffee with flavor.

My left nostril, on the other hand, is completely clear.

You all needed that update.

(Fuck public transportation. This is the second winter in a row I've gotten a cold. Usually my immune system is all "HAH, I DEFEAT YOU, PUNY VIRUS" but that's changed now that I take a very crowded bus every morning. I'm going to have to get my arch-enemy [personal profile] sudaki to send me some of those cute surgical masks they have in Japan.)

I am back from Spring Break, which was... strange. It was nice to see friends, but someone in my extended social circle died of an overdose while I was there.

I probably talked to him at most twice in the last five years, but a lot of my friends knew him well and were fond of him. One of my friends went out with him for ages--they had some rough patches and she had to move away recently, but she was very upset. So that was sad and weird.

I was also sick. Luckily, when I arrived, I was just getting over a bug, and when I left, I was just coming down with another bug, so it wasn't too bad while I was there.

Now I'm really miserable. I have something that is making me cough so long and so hard that a) can't sleep, and b) I think I sprained something. Seriously, every time I cough or move the wrong way, I get a horrible pain in my right side. The rest of the time it just aches dully. I can barely pick up my backpack.

I might stop by student health tomorrow. Not that they can do much, but maybe they can refer me to a doctor who can prescribe me some drugs. (Like an effective cough suppressant!)

... on the plus side, there is a mother singing to her kid in Chinese under my window.
