Method to the Madness 1


I can almost walk around without my foot feeling like it will fall off. That’s a good thing, right? Well, it still hurts enough that I don’t want to walk on it much. I’ll get this crazy inspiration to walk on it one day, and the next it’ll complain to me about how I’ve abused it by making me writhe in pain.

You know, foot pain is one of the worst kinds of pain. (I should know, having been in pain for the past several years.) It’s there, and it won’t go away without being elevated and iced. That’s nice, but life doesn’t stop for foot pain. It just can’t. If life could stop every time any person was in any kind of pain, then not many people would have lives. Everyone is touched by pain of some sort.

I’m not looking forward to tomorrow at school. I have a test. Having skipped most of the classes leading up to said test because I felt like crap, I’m not actually prepared for it. It’s open book, which is nice, but it would still be nice to know what is going on. I know, I could be studying right now like a sane person would. There are two things that you should know about me:

  1. I am not now, nor have I ever been sane. I find it insulting that you might find me so boring that you would think me such a thing.
  2. Studying causes me to forget. Cramming in about two minutes works, but sitting down daily and studying (or even sitting down the weekend before a test and studying) is a guarantee that I will forget everything that has ever been discussed in the class. This fact points to the above statement about sanity.

I only have one week of school until the time that everyone looks forward to until they have children of their own–Spring Break. Yes, I said Spring Break; that lovely week off from classes where many go to Florida, only to come home with fewer brain cells, not-so-funny diseases, and a 9-month reminder that they had fun. What shall I do? The lovely thing I do EVERY Spring Break–sit at home. Yay much? No, not really. I just like having the days off.

My monthly splurge that I am now allowing myself again was WinDVD 9 Plus Blu-Ray for my laptop. Of course, when buying a product to watch DVDs and Blu-Rays, you would expect to be able to watch DVDs and Blu-Rays. It is a very simple thing that you would expect. What happens with the copy I get? It won’t open…at all. It did install. I was able to get it to do that much, but any way that I try to open the thing makes my computer stop and point and laugh. I don’t like it when my computer laughs at me.

Well, I’m off to elevate and ice my foot. Hopefully, now that the pain is subsiding somewhat, the swelling will also ease. (It’s still the size of a California orange.) Keep your fingers crossed.
