I am home today with a bad bad headache. Perhaps a migraine? I do not know the official definition of migraine though. It sucks because I have large amounts of guilt whenever I am sick -- I see it as a personal failure as though I should be able to overcome whatever is wrong with me by force of will. This is a problem with being headstrong and stubborn. As I can usually get most things by sheer force of will, it is very troubling when I cannot. Anyway, yesterday I felt all weird too, so I am going to lay around today and hopefully get better.
In other news, I think I am going to buy a new computer. I am not into the $1600 price tag when I don't have a job, BUT my current computer does not allow me to open more than 3 word documents/ excel files at once which is really impeding my dissertation writing. Also the constant freezing is a problem. I was planning to buy a new computer after graduating and getting a job, but my new plan is to pay this one off when that happens. I'm just buying it in advance. I don't know, it feels a little frivolous, but seriously, I do need word and excel open at the same time.
