Now Lord, You are releasing Your bond-servant to depart in peace, according to Your word; for my eyes have seen Your salvation, which You have prepared in the presence of all peoples, a Light of revelation to the Gentiles, and the glory of Your people Israel.
It seems I have contracted a supercold, or possibly a flu. I have added runny nose and disgusting tubercular cough to my cacophony of symptoms (which previously included sore throat, headache in various headly regions, exhaustion, and painful eyes). I continue to run a temperature between 99° and 100.5°. Unfortunately, I cannot stop my day from happening despite my still feeling like crap. So I will drag myself to:
- Tutoring from 9:00 – 9:50
- Geology from 10:00 – 10:50
- Waiting for an hour, then Bioethics from 12:00 – 12:50
- Meeting with my group and our Ecology professor about a presentation at 1:00
- Interviewing Professor Wenjing Lou about ad hoc networks at 2:00
- Standard ECE Tuesday update meeting from 3:30 – 4:00
- A TC reception starting at 4:30 and hopefully ending within an hour (I was paid $50 to do the advertising for this reception, which included 8.5×11″ posters in all academic buildings, a large poster for the Campus Center, a Tech News ad, and an ad for the big TV monitor in the Campus Center. I can thus only hope lots of people show up as a tribute to my diligence.)
- Possibly meeting with a fellow named Mike Cohen at the Bean Counter to talk about communications as a career from 6:00 to maybe 6:30
Ironically, this is my busiest day this week, and I can only pray I will come through to 7:00 tonight. The Women’s Bible study that usually meets here has been moved elsewhere to avoid my den of germs, which is a blessing. At least I don’t also have to struggle through being around people from 8:00 – 9:00.
Really, I should pity the people I have to interact with.
