Today, I am sick. I am a disgusting, coughing, sneezing, swollen, vomiting, disease-ridden mess, but I am a hot mess who has final exams to take and a job to work, so here we are. I am learning a lot from this experience, although the most obvious lessons have been “you can get carded for cough syrup” and “make sure you bought the non-drowsy kind if you’re going to take it right before an exam.” Ain’t life a kick in the pants.
That being said, aside from running into every person I’ve ever met in my entire life including The Hottest Barista In The Known Universe, I think I’m doing an ok job at being a real person. I am choosing to attribute this success to listening to upbeat music and regular doses of good old fashioned dextromethorphan. Just pardon me as I drip snot on all of your history notes, I guess.
This started out as a themed playlist, but it turned into a this-is-what-I-feel-like-listening-to-right-now playlist. You can’t get mad at me for it because I’m sick and because I actually like how it turned out.
Fuck you, bronchitis. I have shit to do.
