My plan for today was to study for my comprehensive graduate exams.
Did I tell you I have to take comprehensive graduate exams? In three weeks? Over material that I have learned over the past eight years? I didn't?
Maybe it's because I'm in denial.
Anyway, I have to study for these exams because they are very tricky and ask me all sorts of questions like prescriptive and descriptive approaches to grammar and writing. While I found that topic very interesting, I could not spend an hour writing about it. That's where the studying comes in.
However, at approximately 7 pm last night, my stomach started warring it out over the prescriptive and descriptive approaches to pizza digestion. My stomach spent more than an hour quarreling about it, and still, this afternoon, hasn't quite resolved the issue. I hate it when my stomach fights with itself. It's never pretty.
In short, I am enduring a sick day. Fortunately, it is Friday and so the girls are up with the grandparents. Unfortunately, it is Friday, which means I technically have less than 3 weeks until my graduate exams.
I think my stomach is starting to hurt again.
