Just one of those days.

Today has been one of those days.

Today I came down with yet another cold.  I have been strictly adhering to Zicam’s “once every 4 hours” rule.  I have been chugging orange juice by the gallon.  I have been hoping that I don’t get sick.  Perhaps this will be a worthwhile endeavor.

Today I realized that I have been feeling sorry for myself for the past month.  All of the stress that has been in my life has been my own creation.  I need to quit being a wimp and man up.  

Today I got my last 2 rejection letters from grad schools.  Looks like I will not be getting my Ph.D. anytime soon.  I now need to figure out what I am going to do.  I will probably work my ass off and apply again.  But I need to decide on (and get) a job that will allow me to actually flourish in my life if I don’t get in again as opposed to what I am doing now–getting by.  

So, to celebrate this wonderful day, I kicked off my night with a case of beer.  I know it’s cliche to drink the worries away, but whatever.   If nothing else, it allows me to not realize how bored I am.
