I’ve been feeling sick whenever I go to school. The worst thing is that I don’t even know why. I just feel like throwing up when I get into the bus.

And after I eat.

And when I’m in class.

And the fact that I think I’m allergic to coffee now???

It’s really a bother, especially during class. I don’t know whether to go to the washroom in case I throw up, or just try to copy down notes as fast as I can. Gosh, I just want to do well in school, and I’m enjoying most of my courses. It doesn’t help that I think I developed an allergic reaction to coffee, I think.

I had a cup of Tim Hortons last Monday after lunch to keep myself awake, but then my throat started feeling really dry and tight. Couldn’t even stay in class to listen to lab instructions, but nothing happens in physics anyway. And when I had a coffee just yesterday the same thing happened.

I guess I don’t drink coffee anymore…

Besides that, I guess my life is okay.

Courses are pretty interesting, and I have some great teachers. I enjoy BLDG 1000, 1050, 1200, and 1600. Drafting, building materials, construction, and structures. A lot of the courses correlate quite well, and many of the new topics and ideas get covered in different ways between the classes. CAD seems to be fun too, but I haven’t had enough classes to decide whether or not it’s going to be a challenge.

On a side note, getting all the supplies for these courses makes me feel more like an architect, especially having to carry around a drafting tube with my drawings. I’m quite proud of the T square I made as well. My mom had the end piece of her old drafting T square, and I attached a piece of bamboo flooring to it. It’s quite sturdy, so hopefully it’s actually straight LOL. I 90’d it with a 30 60 90 triangle, but I don’t actually know if the piece of wood is perfectly straight. Welp, time to find out next time I draft. And I’ve had to clean off my desk so I can actually draw. I used to have stacks of books and random stuff sitting around the edges of my desk, but my T square needs to slide around now.

Hopefully I can get an internship next year during the summer. Need to replenish my bank account and get some good experience. My course is one of the few at BCIT with no co-op opportunity. Honestly the only thing I’m worried about is getting into the 3rd year of the program. At the rate my physics classes are going, I’ll need to spend a lot of time reading the textbook by myself, which might actually make it worth considering I spent so much on textbooks. I should probably try to save for a new computer next year. Cept there are a ton of birthdays in October, gotta make it rain money. And plan a gift for secret santa as well.

Eh. Onwards to another week of feeling sick.
