I am overworked, behind, and sick. Everything is okay. Everything is okay. I'm taking a deep breath now. I am overworked, behind, and sick, but this will all pass. As a matter of fact, I think I smell an engineering problem. Optimization of self - go, go, go! Project time span: 3 days. By 3pm on Friday the 9th, I will no longer be overworked, behind, and/or sick.
Issue 1: Sick.

- Food - Hot food. Good nutrition. No more skipping meals - at least 3 a day. No junk.
- Medicine - Purchasing some sort of effervescent cold remedy. Taking religiously.
- Warmth - Will wear jacket when outside at all times. Will take hot showers every morning and night to clear sinuses OF DOOM.

Issue 2: Overworked.
- Company - work in lounges and labs and classrooms with other people as much as possible for sanity's sake.
- Breaks - at least one full hour of every day will be devoted to doing something I want, no matter what is due.
