A Year of Living Positively -Day 26

It's hard writing today. It's been a dark and cold rainy day and I've a full-fledged cold--again. My body feels exhausted and I can't stop sneezing and sniffling. Dammit!

Besides, I've already written a letter to a friend who emailed me to ask how I've been doing. I have been thinking of sending her a message during the last few days, as a matter of fact.

I had the last follow-up meeting with the neurologist this morning. I woke up too early, so I got to the medical center a bit early, but the doctor saw me right away regardless. I then dropped a pharmacist's shop to get anti-hystimine tablets.

Transit was busy as usual, with workers going to work earlier in the morning, and the elders and homemakers heading out later in the morning. Since I had some extra time this morning, I stopped at "Freedom Market" where you can find "gold market street" close by. I didn't feel like browsing through those market stalls as I'd been planning, but I did buy something.

Having heard that gold prices dropped just before Christmas, had climbed back up but plateaued in the last few days, I had been thinking of making a small investment in a piece of jewelry and I did that this morning. It's just another security and a way to diversify my savings. 

I got to work early and went to the cafeteria early again, though I waited until 11:15 to make my appearance. As usual, the food services staff were very courteous and cheerful. They were packing up the coffee shop outside the cafeteria when I arrived. This might be the last week of staff food service, as I said yesterday. They served curried chicken and coleslaw with some ill-fitting side dishes, but the chicken was good.

In the general English class this afternoon, I explained the assignment and my expectations of it yet again. It is due on Friday. A student just called me to ask about it again. It's not always an interference in understanding due to language barriers; it's often the low level of thinking in this country that results from a system over-dedicated to rote learning and quantitative measures of learning. Sigh.

I really should like down now. More tomorrow.
