That Time I Was Irish and I Got TB

Updates on my very special life:

March 16-17: I went to to Washington, DC to celebrate St. Patrick’s Day.  All of St. Patrick’s Day was spent stopping in at various bars in Dupont Circle and it was phenomenal.

We left my friend’s apartment at 10:30 a.m. and didn’t get back until 3 a.m.  Then I had to get up at 6 a.m. to catch a train back to Connecticut.  That was less than ideal but I’m not even mad.

March 18:  Left DC around 7:30 a.m., got home around 2:00 p.m.  Then I took it easy and then went to my friend’s house to watch the season finale of The Walking Dead.  This episode was ridiculous and I absolutely cannot wait for the fall so season three can start.  But my response to Lori?

Ugh, she sucks.  I can’t wait for her character to be killed off.

March 19-25: I met up with one guy friend on Thursday to watch college basketball.  Then I met up with another guy friend on Saturday to watch more college basketball.  I watched both games at the same place and saw some of the same people; I bet they think I’m really popular with members of the opposite sex, which is funny to me.

Just did a Google search for “I’m not a player I just crush a lot gif,” and these were the first five pictures that came up:

The rest of the week was full of me feeling like absolute crap (though I doubt eating bar food and drinking beer helped all that much).  Good thing Google was on my side and a quick search of my symptoms yielded plenty of results, including pancreatic cancer, Hodgkin’s disease, and the following from WebMD:

That’s right, my friends, I also have Tuberculosis, an intestinal parasitic infection, and another infection caused by a roundworm.  Turns out TB and parasites are now first-world problems.

Anyway, despite my terrible case of TB, mono, and various infections from parasites, I’m going back down to DC again this weekend.  Life doesn’t stop because I’m plagued by multiple illnesses at the same time.


So those are my exciting updates.  Additionally, I’ve decided on a few races I plan to do…I currently have one mapped out for every month for the rest of the year.  That list will be posted in the next few days, but it’s looking like half marathons through September, and then two or three marathons to wrap up the year.  I’m feeling good about it.
