"I think I gotta case of the Strep."

Who was it that once said, "Thine whom defeats the perils of the Strep, comes out the victor"? I don't know, maybe I made it up. It seems like an appropriate maxim this week, as I watch my friends fall victim to streptococcal pharyngitis, and I myself feel its powers dwarf my desire to study. With the help of some possibly undesirable antibiotics I should be back at full strength come senior seminar time.

It does quell my nerves to know that in a week and a half, I will have expunged the senior stress syndrome from my body, as well as the more physical manifested strep throat, and will be on the road for warm weather and geology! I will, however, miss having spring break to spend times with those I hold closest to me...

As I sit back now, reviewing this latest post, I begin to feel the massive amounts of vitamin C, green tea, and water hit me and the bed looks even more inviting than it did earlier today when I took my 7th nap in the last 10 years. So to that bed I shall retire now and hope that tomorrow the women at the Health Services will provide me with medicines such that I do not make sick any more innocent people.

A note on the picture....something about Charlotte just makes me want to hold her like a backpack, I can't really explain it. And as ancient belief goes, and now scientific as well, laughter and happiness make you healthier, so who knows.....after enjoying this picture I may wake up tomorrow feeling better than ever!


  1. Sorry I got you sick! Now it's my turn to take care of you for a bit. Let me know if you need anything! P.S. I love that picture, too. :)

  2. Well who on earth did you get that from?

    I blame Julie for everything. Seriously.

  3. Hope you're feeling better. Drink lots of water and geat plenty of rest and make that Dr. give you the high powered meds! Dad

  4. Hey, Buddy...I've tried for days (on my Dell) to post a comment. Doh. I should have been using the Mac. I sure hope you're feeling better. Thinking of you and sending healing thoughts your way.

  5. Long time no haven't become an illegal alien in Mexico, have you? If so, remember to tell them your great great grandparents came from Guanajato...
