The Signs of Aging

Oh man. Let’s just say I’ve been feeling my age lately. It’s not even like I’m that old; I’m turning 33 this year. That’s not old at all. But hot damn do I feel old.

I was knocked flat on my ass yesterday by a cold. A COLD. I used to laugh at those and hop myself up on Halls, DayQuil and whatever other manner of medication I could find. Maybe some Advil Cold and Sinus. Those little pills are usually the relief bringers for me.

But nooooo. Not yesterday. I had a sore throat on Tuesday so I left work early. I figured I’d work from home for a bit and then when my coworker returned from his lunch I’d have a nap and chill. Things seemed to be going fine, but then the city I live in started burning dead trees. Right near my house. The combination of the throat and the smoke knocked me out. My nasal cavities are stuffed and yesterday I didn’t get out of bed until 4:00pm.

So I took a sick day yesterday. I filled my bed with manga and my tablet and promptly passed out for a few hours.

Have I read all of these before? Of course I have. That’s the joy about owning something. You can keep reading it.

Folks at my Day Job were pretty okay with me taking the day. I always feel really bad and have this urge to apologize profusely. But they won’t hear of it.

In other good news, I heard back from Memorial University so I know where to send my transcripts! I can get that organized today. Hopefully I can take at least one class come the Fall term. That would be awesome!

I hope your Thursday is going well! What are some signs you’ve discovered of your ‘aging’?

Hope you’re feeling better soon! Colds and smoke related sinusy stuff suck hard! As for aging, I’m not a fan. I worry about losing my mobility, my memory, things like that. There should be some kind of ombudsman I can write to in order to complain, am I right? 😛

Once you figure out the address for that let me know! I have a letter or two to send in myself! 😉

Will do! 😉
