Ugh, sick. Actually, I've been sick since sunday. The problem is that I felt great yesterday and now all the symptoms are back plus some new ones. More complications include a giant test in American Studies and a slightly less giant test in Advanced Math tomorrow and the SAT on saturday... and instead of studying, all I feel like doing is lying down with a hotpad on my head.

Maybe I'll just cut my losses and not go in tomorrow. The problem there is that I think I've already exceeded the maximum number of days you're allowed to be out of school and they just haven't called me on it yet. Oh, how I can loathe meatspace...

The only redeeming factor here is that while investigating possible causes for sickness, I found that the preemptory filter on my HEPA air cleaner (the one that collects big dust particles before the actual HEPA filter gets to them) was in backwards. Romantically, when it was in backwards it was making the air worse causing me to become sick. Realistically, it was just blocking the HEPA filter from doing its job. Pessimistically, it had no affect at all and I've contracted a rare tropical disease for which Medical Science has no cure.
