Last night I was starting to feel like I was catching another bug (which pisses me off because I was just sick in September), so I took some Nyquil when I went to bed last night to kick it out of my system.
I didn't take into account the odd drug reactions I've had of late.
I woke up this morning feeling much better, though my throat still feels a little stiff. I actually feel as if I slept off the three bad days of sickness and went straight into the tail-end. (Definitely good news.)
However, by the time I made it to the shower it became perfectly clear that I was going to be out of sorts all day. Read: I was feeling pretty loopy.
So I went to my music theory class this morning. The class I seem to struggle the most with. I was even early. I'm really lucky I have a pretty good grasp on our current material, because I was not completely there. I had moments of clarity during which I could answer pretty much anything the professor asked correctly... Followed by moments during which I could barely figure out which notes were in a chord.
Afterward, I came home and got back into bed. For an hour. Then I started working. For two hours. On collections, which takes a surprising amount of brain power. I think it's the fact that you have to consciously be nice to people who you know are trying to screw you over.
Then I had to go to class again. Luckily I didn't have to do anything but sit there and watch students perform.
I was feeling less wiggy by this point, but still not normal.
Who am I kidding? It's six PM and I still feel super funky.
Anyway, I came home from class to work some more and take a test for my music history class. The last test wasn't too intense. But this one was on nearly every listening example and composer we've had for the last unit.
Plus I have to go watch an opera at my voice teacher's house with the rest of his students later.
I need a nap.
And possibly a way to avoid Nyquil hangover.
Regardless, I got a ton of shit done today (and well) while feeling super drugged up from cold medicine I took last night.
