(February 5, Friday)
After days of water and liquid lunches and dinners, I finally woke up feeling amazing. I had no headache and I was not coughing much. Everything seemed to be working right. It was all a matter of waiting another 24 hours to see if I had no fever.
The rest of the night I sat in my room imagining that my sickness served some greater purpose–like there was a reason why I got sick on Tuesday, which gave me time to attend my thoughts. For this reason, I felt the necessity to record my happiness by drawing in my book of college memories. I sketched the side portion of my face to represent my sickness.
