Allergic to Tuesdays?!

I am off school again, and coincidentally it is once more on a Tuesday! I go all school year without a day off, then take two Tuesdays off in a row. I woke up Sunday morning feeling as though I had a cold coming on, and had a sore throat by the end of the day. Then, yesterday I started getting a blocked and runny nose, and my eyes started streaming. This morning I woke up feeling the same, and decided it made no sense to push myself to go into school, as I can't concentrate anyway - my head is pounding. So, another day in bed - so far I have watched Everybody Loves Raymond, Frasier, Will & Grace, Jeremy Kyle, and now I'm watching This Morning. There's not a lot of choice on weekdays, and I don't feel up to reading or doing homework at the minute.

Thank-you to Molly and Jess for the kind messages on my blog from last Tuesday. I'm still feeling quite stressed - I have a feeling that I'm feeling so rough with this cold because I'm stressed, although there is a flu bug going around here at the minute - with schoolwork, but I'm trying to stress myself out less. My step-grandad had his scan, and it revealed the cancer hasn't spread, which is relieving: the cancer is localised, and although it will require a major operation to remove it, hopefully the fact that it hasn't spread so far is a good sign.

I finsihed sorting out a visit to an open day of Salford University two days ago, and the tickets arrived today: it's quite an early open day, but as the course there is my top choice at the minute (English Language with Linguistics) I've decided it's worth the money. I'm going up with my mum, as my dad and sister will be in Germany visiting my family, and I'm looking forward to it!

Wow, I managed a relatively short post - probably because my eyes are stremaing alot, and it's taken a while to write this much! - and I will update more soon. Right now, I'm going to close my eyes and hope to get some more sleep!

Hi Becky,

I'm sorry you're not feeling very well, I hope it's not flu. And I'm sorry you're still feeling stressed with schoolwork, I can really understand how you feel (my final exams begin in just less than 6 weeks! Eek!).

That's good news that your grandad's cancer hasn't spread. I hope his operation is relatively straightforward.

I'm very impressed that you're planning uni open days already! When is your Salford Uni open day? Let me know how it goes :)

Speak soon,

My first exam is six weeks today - scary! Thanks for your comment, the open day happens to be an early one and is on the 8th of April, so I will let you know how that goes =]

Hugs xx

My exams will be at a similar time to yours then as mine run from the 4th to the 22nd of May! I started revision this morning, lol, but only mananged about 10mins before I was bored. I plan to start some serious revision this weekend - but I've said that for the last 4 weekends and it hasn't happened yet! I hope your revision goes well and I wish you loads of luck for your exams :)

April 8th isn't far off, you must be excited about the open day. I only went to one open day before I decided against going to uni, but I found it really interesting.
