Spring break update: battling bad cold, and watching old Seinfeld episodes

April 6, 2012 § Leave a comment

There’s an episode of Seinfeld where George Costanza landed in a hospital after he had a heart attack. Turns out it was a false alarm, but while he was lying in bed, he promised himself that if he got better he would turn Zen, and meditate and stuff:

If I ever get out of here, I’m gonna change my life. I’m gonna do a whole Zen thing. Take up yoga, meditate.  I’ll eat right. Calm down, lose my anger…

I mention this because I have a cold, and have spent some time in front of the television watching old sitcoms, among them this Seinfeld episode.

This cold is taking up my entire spring break. My week long break was supposed to be productive. I was going to study hard, outline for my exams, take advantage of the nice weather, and see old friends. Instead, most of the time, I have spent indoors in bed, or on the sofa with a box of Kleenex.

When I get better, I want to not take my health for granted. I actually always say this every time I get a cold or the flu, but I never follow through. (Maybe putting it in writing would help.) I get caught up with being caught up, and forget to think about how awesome it is to breathe without congestion, to have mucus-free channels, to wake up without aches, to have the energy to  get up and go to school…   It’s only when I get a cold that I think about these things. And that shouldn’t be the case.
