Less than a week into 2011, and I’m already enjoying my first cold of the year. Not the worst cold I’ve had, but I still feel crappy and off-kilter. The Director has been home sick all week, and yesterday the creeping crud caught Alpha Geek. So far the Artist seems to have escaped the plague.
The weird thing? This is the first time in decades that I’ve caught a cold when I wasn’t about to start my period. Usually I manage to miss them unless they come through the household during that premenstrual window.
This morning I went to interview for the master’s program at NCSU. Hopefully I didn’t suck too badly, despite the sore throat, sniffles, and general malaise.
Tomorrow’s the first day of class at the community college, as well—since I’ll be on campus, I can drop by the offices of the teachers I’ve e-mailed for recommendations, and get a definite yea or nay from them. Next week I take the GMAT, which is like an SAT for graduate school. The deadline for all this stuff is a couple months off, but I figure the sooner the better…
