Today's Odd Holiday(s): Human Rights Day.

Hello, Blog! I am so, so sorry to have been neglecting you lately. It rips me apart that it's been nine days since I last wrote! Especially because I have some sweet and entertaining stories for you.

One of the many reasons (in addition to finals, work, my social life, and being a lazy bum) that I haven't written lately is that I've been sick. Last week, I had a bad cold, but it seemed to have gone away. Then Brad got a really bad cold. He was coughing like no other and had the chills so bad one day that he couldn't get out of bed because anything that wasn't buried under his blankets was too cold. So I went over and took care of him (I made him soup and got him medicine and just sat and hung out with him for a while).

But my attempt at being a good girlfriend eventually got me sick with whatever it was he had. So for the past week I've been blowing my nose left and right, coughing frequently, and overall just feeling like crap. Tuesday night, I went over to his apartment to watch a movie and ended up sleeping there because I started getting chills and he was worried I was coming down with what he had. I ended up spending all of Wednesday there, too, after coming down with what is probably the worst cold I've ever had. But he was so sweet. I had a low fever and he was ridiculously worried about it. He went to class and came back with soup for me, and that night he had to go to a concert for a class and went and got Culvers for dinner. We'd gone there once before with my friend Jess and I always get the same thing: a chicken tender kids meal with ketchup. I usually only use one side of ketchup, but he wanted to make sure I had enough, so he brought back four.

It was adorable. I like him a lot.

So I've been pretty busy with that.

The other day I had my first trip to our campus health center. It was unrelated to the cold, but I won't get into the messy details. It was kind of funny, though. The nurse/doctor lady was so sweet and made me feel really comfortable, which was nice because I hate going to the doctor and I was nervous because I'd never been there before and wasn't entirely sure what to expect.

So anyway, I got put on a short antibiotic kick and I keep worrying that I'm going to have a reaction to the medicine because I have reactions to other medicine and it's weird to take something that wasn't prescribed by my family doctor and not to have my mom around all the time in case something does happen.

(Oh, anxiety, how I've missed you...)

Finals start this coming week. I only have three that I have to take, which is nice. And two of them are bound to be really easy. There's one I'm a bit worried about, but I'll just be glad to have it over with. I'm so looking forward to being able to be home for a decent stretch of time.

I think that's most of the big updates of my life for now. I probably won't update again til after finals. I have a feeling things are going to be kind of crazy until then. It's supposed to be snowing like crazy this weekend, so I'll pretty much be on cloud nine.

What's new with you guys? I'm curious to know. How is your winter so far? Anything wonderful and exciting happen? I hope so. :)
