Last night I had one of the most grueling classes to date. It went on and on and on. The class itself is not boring; actually it is a very exciting class, but it just went on and on and on, and it almost had me fooled that we were going to debate for the full three hours. There was so much noise from everyone talking at once when we were put into groups to layout the contentious subject matter to debate that when it came time to do the class discussion, my throat was hurting. I could hardly talk afterwards from talking so loudly so that the people across the table could hear me, and this morning my voice was still broken from it.
Today was my turn at my work to do the whole shift, from 7:00am till 5:00pm in the evening. After such a long class from the night before, work was torture. I went from one extreme to another: I go from sitting all day to standing the next. Right now my feet hurt, my throat is killing me and I think my ears are still ringing from last night.
Talking on the telephone is the worst. One call I made, my voice crackled for the first few sounds, then I could slowly start forming small short sounds, but one syllable at a time until I could finish the conversation. The poor fellow on the other end of the line was laughing as said I must have gone to concert or sports event. I told him it was a Law and Society class, and he just about busted the little speaker on the telephone from laughing even harder.
I think for this long weekend I’m going to not talk—give my poor vocal chords a break. My ears are still ringing, and it has almost being twenty-four hours since the class, so that proves that there was some serious noise going on. I need to build a quiet room, or deprivation chamber to heal myself. I need to give my senses a rest.
I think I should start looking at the assignments too from the handout that was given at the end of class last night. Maybe I’ll blog about our topic of debate? I still haven’t even cracked open my textbook, so I’ll save that for tomorrow morning. Oh, I am very far ahead in my readings—not to worry about me falling behind.
Hummm. This is a totally boring post now that I reread it? Aaaa, I’m posting it! What the heck.
