I'm late to the party, but yay for recovering from bronchial fuck my life! I had that in December and it was the absolute worst.

 

It is going around here like crazy! So bad. "Lying on the sofa watching TV" sounds so great until I HAVE to do it for a week. I'm still popping cough drops like candy.

Definitely added this to my loot wish list.  Amazing. 

 

It always attracts comment. :)

Congratulations!!  Unless it is found that you eat babies or your university goes under, you've got it!  Happy dance!

 

Thanks! I'm super pleased.

 

Not much to report today, but I am going to karate class tonight. If I'm going to keep up with my language practice goal, I'm going to need to start putting it on my calendar, though.

That's because the real activity is "lying on the sofa watching TV while hacking up a lung, shivering from fever, and generally feeling miserable".  It took so long to go away; good luck on getting the rest of it out of your life.

Hello, all --

 

This week should be a little saner and less busy. I think. I'm caught up (?) from being out sick and my presentation is behind me.

 

Mostly a good job last week, though I'm not remembering to keep up on my language goal. I think I did 2 of 3 lessons last week. I'm opening a tab right now so I'll remember to do one today.

 

Not an official goal at this point, but noting that I've got a 6-month daily meditation streak in my app right now. I'd love to hit another 1-year target.

I am much better, barely coughing any more. Unfortunately Ms Rogue has it now. (She is blaming me; I'm pointing out that I was well for two weeks before she got it; this argument is carrying no weight.)

 

Karate belt test is this Friday!

Ooh exciting! How do you feel about it?

 

I feel ready! I'm still at an easy level (karate kindergarten) and there is very little new material compared to last time. This week's classes will be a lot of mock testing, but so far I've been getting good feedback on my progress. Always a little anxiety over any test, but I feel pretty confident. :)

Fantastic! It might be karate kindergarten but it's still a whole bunch of new skills to learn and do I have to remind you that it really wasn't that long ago since you were tripping over yourself? You've already come such a long way!

Hello, team --

 

I think I'm getting sick again. (Ms Rogue picked up a similar bug to the one I had, and I think she's given it back to me.) I have to be at work because I missed an entire week last month and I have shit that's gotta get done. I'm trying to arrange things so I can just sit at my desk and only interact with people online for the rest of the week, and keep using hand sanitizer like a mofo.

 

It's not as bad as the one I had last month. My plan right now is to just get as much sleep as I can tonight, power through the next two days, including karate test tomorrow if I possibly can, and then I can spend the weekend sacked out if I need to. Is this a terrible plan? MAYBE. We'll see.

Thanks, friends -- I'm hoping I'll just wake up with a clear head tomorrow. I am not a "power through when sick" kind of guy so I'm trying not to feel too sorry for myself. If I have to, I'll bail this afternoon after getting some stuff done.

The better plan would have been to leave out the getting sick part :P   

 

Hope you get over this one quickly

Thank you team -- man, do I ever think I sound like a drama queen complaining over a minor cold, but I feel like *just* got over my last bug and the coughing was going away when this one hit me. And yes, worst possible timing!

 

So far this morning I think I'm going to make it. I'm pounding coffee and cough medicine. If it were going to be the level of activity required for a regular class, I would probably just have to tap out*, but I am only going to be on my feet and active for a fraction of the time. They'll call us up to the mat in groups and a lot of the time I'll be sitting. The most cardio-strenuous thing I'll have to do is my belt form, and that lasts maybe thirty seconds to a minute. So I CAN DO IT.

 

(And then go home, order takeout, put on pajamas and sleep all weekend)

 

 

 

*see, I remember my challenge theme

What?! NOOOOOOOOO

 

Well at least if she gave it back to you, then she can't blame YOU for getting HER sick, since it couldn't be the same bug twice....

That is the only possible "pro"

Right? My take is always "I can't blame you, this is what viruses do, they propagate between people and we live together so it comes with the territory." Her take is always "YOU GOT ME SICK" :)

 

I think I'm gonna make it.
