Sick Panda

So after making it through almost an entire year without getting sick, of course now – NOW – one week before the LSAT…! – I have to get struck down by a terrible cold and fever the likes of which I haven’t experienced in quite some time. I was passed out, fevered and unable to even feed myself – let alone study – for the past few days. Nice.

This is a picture of me last night gazing sadly at my tiny woefully ineffectual bottle of Japanese cold medicine while wondering if the calculation of a standard adult dose being equivalent to “3 tablets at a time, up to 5 times daily” perhaps wasn’t made with an american-sized panda in mind. I was, of course, afflicted with the double curse of the plague-stricken: unable to sleep due to intense feverish discomfort and all over joint pain, but too out of it to do anything productive either.

I had planned on getting my final studying and practice tests in this last weekend, but the plague put the kibosh on that plan. Nothing left to do, I suppose, except grit my teeth, hope that I get healthy by tomorrow and try my best to jam the last bits of studying in the next few days, right in the middle of what is going to be a very busy week at work.

Wish me luck. Plague Panda out.

    Get well soon, poor panda!
    At least you didn’t go to Akihabara looking for pink laptop covers today. You never know what it’s good for, I guess.

    That stinks man. I hope you do well on the test.

    That’s awful timing! Hope you feel better very soon (without on the bottle of pills), and breeze through the test.
    Take it easy, and think of all the hard work you’ve already done! The battle’s almost won :)

    I’m sorry you’re sick!
    Thanks for all the comments on my blog, I really appreciate them! I am back in Japan… just really slow about uploading my pictures. I guess that’s on e reason I’ll probably not bother with photoshop, even if it would fix things. sigh.
    Hope you feel better soon.

    I’m impressed, I must say. Seldom do I encounter a blog that’s equally educative and entertaining,
    and without a doubt, you’ve hit the nail on the head. The problem is something which too few men and women are speaking intelligently about. I am very happy I stumbled across this during my hunt for something concerning this. ppi claims

    not disappoint me just as much as this particular one. After all, Yes, it was my
    choice to read through, however I really thought you’d have something interesting to say. All I hear is a bunch of whining about something you could fix if you were not too busy looking for attention. watch tv

    Hey! I know this is kinda off topic but I was wondering
    which blog platform are you using for this site? I’m getting sick and tired of WordPress because I’ve had problems with hackers and I’m looking at options for another platform. I would be great if you could point me in the direction of a good platform.
