Back when I was in college (you know, all of 2 months ago), it was much more gratifying to stay home sick. However, now that I have absolutely nothing to do, I don't even get the pleasure of knowing I didn't have to sit through a boring lecture or lab. At the end of a cold I was usually ready to go back to school, see friends, get back into the grind. I'm at the end of a cold now, and all I have to look forward to is more of the same. More sitting on the couch. More making excuses for not going to the gym. More watching the new fall line up that I DVR'ed.
