And also eat an entire jar of peanut butter with their fingers! Gross home-food cravings don’t happen often (I LOVE Indian food!) but when they do, they come with a vengeance. Chips and nutella have already been outlawed as failsnack choices, and I’m pretty sure peanut butter just made the no-no list.
I finally went to the doctor this week! And low and behold, I’ve caught the black lung, pop. I’m alright though, a heavy dose of sketchy Indian antibiotics and I’m already feeling as good as new (don’t worry mom, they’re not really that sketchy. I did get some funky ayurvedic mint balm equivalent of vick’s vapor rub though. That makes me feel a bit too healthy for my own good, I think.)
Okay, so I don’t have the black lung. But I do have an upper respiratory infection. And bronchitis. Aaaaand laryngitis.
But really, things aren’t so bad. I’m feeling a lot better and quite productive! TIME TO KICK THESE PAPERS’ RESPECTIVE REARS!
I’m sitting at just about halfway-done for both of my 10 page papers and taking a little brain break. Before I go to sleep tonight, paper-y justice WILL be served. I had a Kannada exam this morning, turned in my millionth and FINAL draft of my project proposal for the last month of the trip yesterday evening (more on that soon) have my final drum lesson tomorrow as well as an oral language exam, and leave for Goa/traveling TOMORROW EVENING. I’m really hoping that the free time traveling will finally give me the breathing room to play with my camera a bit. We’ve been horrendously busy, and that doesn’t leave a lot of time for cameratoria to play with her microphone/flash. Hopefully I’ll have some sweeet things to post soon.
So, I’m leaving a quick update before I get sucked back into academia! And I will leave you with a fun picture or two, just for good measure.
