Still Sick.

I am still sick. In fact I had to call in sick today - which is not good news. With only one month left of practicum I am increasingly worried about getting all of my hours in. As it stands right now (based on calculations in my own spreadsheet *nerd*) I can afford to miss exactly 0 more hours of work. This is assuming I get 8 hours of credit for our final exam. I'm not sure if we do, and I may actually be in the negative. In which case I'll have to pull some double shifts or something. Dear god. I'm suddenly regretting missing 2 of my PFT shifts.

Oh well, nothing I can do about that today - from the couch. So instead I'm working on my last homework assignment and watching Mystery Diagnosis on TV. I like to try and diagnosis the patient before the TV show does. I'm successful about 25% of the time - usually when there is some sort of Respiratory connection. I was right on top of Methemogoblinemia and also Alpha 1-antitrypsin. Recently on Untold Stories of the E.R. I heard them shout, "Where's the RT?" So that made my day. Kind of like when Canada is mentioned on an American TV show.

And sometimes when I have some down time I like to read things on the internets. One thing I found that caught my eye was this article - How to Have Hobbies in College. As years have gone by I find that I have no hobbies. All I do is study, and do work (bookkeeping) and when I am not doing either of those I am spending my time in a way that can't really be defined (sleeping, talking, eating, watching tv). Recently someone asked me what I liked to do for fun.... and I couldn't answer. How embarrassing. Honestly I think I enjoy just doing nothing. But for those of you who would like to have better time management in order to fit in some fun, the article lays out a good plan.

Cough cough sniffle.
