i've been sick for six days.
i've been able to make strategic appearances - ivan chew's awesome talk in our davies forum on digital literacy, dinner near clement with ivan, si wei, and sarah, a faculty meeting, a meeting with the deans - but other than that i've been at home, inside, for six days.
throughout the span, nene's been camping out near the door to our deck, giving me this look that says, "what's your problem?!? it's blue and beautiful outside, let's get going!"
and she gets confused when she hears my response: ack! cough! weeze!
the worst part of the sickness was that i had to cancel one class of digital journalism - the class when students were going to present their blogs in class. arg. the second worst part of the sickness was that i missed out exploring the city with ivan, si wei, and sarah.
but: the best part of the sickness is that today, for the first time in six days, i feel the first drops of wellness.
