Writer's Block: Quarantine Etiquette  
The holiday season happens to overlap with cold and flu season (and not just the bottle flu). When you get sick, do you go to work or school anyway, or do you stay home to avoid spreading your germs?

I go anyway unless I'm puking or otherwise incapacitated. I think I even went when I had possibly the worst head cold ever and could not focus or breathe out my nose. And right now, I've had this cough for over a week, although I don't feel too bad otherwise. But it's starting to make my head hurt. :( I have been loading up on herbal teas and cough drops, but it still hasn't gone away. I was fearing it would progress into a full out cold at first, but it just seems to be annoying and lingering. Ah, well.

My sister had her graduation today. RRCC doesn't have a ceremony in the fall, so I will have to wait til spring. But I'm taking classes this spring semester anyway, so it'll actually work out nicely. Still debating about what to do for the future. I don't know that my ideal jobs are something that really falls along the traditional route. They're not really something you go to college for to get employed. I'm kind of wondering again whether getting a B.A. in Theatre or English is the right path for me. I think it will help, but should I be thinking more along the lines of what will get me a day job? What am I going to do with this? I should go talk to an advisor down at Metro sometime and get some input.

I know people with English degrees that have decent careers in tech writing, logistics, management, etc. It doesn't preclude you from getting a decent day job, AFAIK.

I relate to your feeling somewhat lost about it, tho.
