    • I'm currently fighting a cold and hoping that it will be done away with before the next semester starts on Monday.

      • Ah yes, school starts Monday. Doing Accounting online I can get into my classwork, but there's a funny business about the schedule as it goes down the side of the webpage, and there's a certain URL that I need to login at a certain place. But since it doesn't officially 'start' until Monday I'm not raising a fuss until then.

        Amazon inflicted a 'free trial' of Prime on me when I ordered some stuff on Boxing Day. Now I'm finding myself muttering 'if shipping's free, why should I walk bulky things home from five blocks away if they're at a decent price?' Witch is exactly their Machiavellian plot, isn't it. They want to send me all my kitchen dry goods and every kind of paper. (Their cheese spread options suck, though.)

        • First day back at school. I've got about two hours until my only Monday class, but since my brother drives me now that I can't drive myself, I've been here for about an hour and a half already (he's a professor here, so he has classes to teach). So yeah, I'm just sitting here by a window being bored.

          • My brother is out of town for a math conference so I'm off for the next two days of school, making for a full week off since I only have classes Monday-Thursday and there's no school next Monday... I feel like I should be excited for the time off, but I'm actually not. I like going to class, gods help me, even my two and a half hour math class on Mondays and Wednesdays.

              It's because you're no longer a teenager. School takes on a different aspect when you're older. For most people. (TEST is a four letter word). Good luck with the new semester. How's your recovery going?

              Recovery is going well. Not as fast as I had been hoping, but well. I can stand up on my own without blocking and walk with just a walker to aid with balance, but not for too long of a distance. 53 feet is the farthest I've gone in one go, and that was just this past Monday. My left leg feels like it's almost at full strength most of the time, though while walking I can tell it's not. My right leg is still lagging far behind. I'm getting used to how it feels while walking, but the quad is still super weak and causes some balance issues, though the last two times its buckled I've been able to catch myself with my left leg, so that's good.

              The surgeon says I'll continue to regain nerve strength for up to two years after the surgery, so I've got a lot of time before I get back to full strength, but it seems more and more like the right foot might have a bit of permanent paralysis, inasmuch that I've still yet to recover the ability to lift the right foot upwards at the ankle, which was one of the first things that came back on my left. I can hold it level so that it doesn't drag while walking, but that's it. No upward motion at all.
