Health class is going to be a toughie.  It's never the monstrously difficult or heavy workload classes that kill me; it's always the extremely "easy" classes.

The course material will be very simple.  It's just going to involve me sitting in a chair and holding onto my anger as the Priests of the Coming Fatpocalypse display their scariest wares.  For instance, did you know that over 100,000 people died of obesity last year in the U.S.?  Huh.  Killed by obesity.  As in, the fat around their waste reached up and strangled them in the night?  They died of blood loss from accidentally eating their own arms?  I have no idea where this statistic came from or even what causes of death they're grouping under the obesity header.  Maybe they just put everybody who died last year above a certain BMI into this category.  Look out for the up-and-coming Driving While Fat initiative:  "We reason that you could drop dead at any instant, therefore you should not be on the roads."

I sound all tough and angry about this, but in truth, I'm having anxiety attacks before every class.  Once I get back to the CCT, where all is computers and numbers and there's actually more science than pseudoscience, I always heave a huge sigh of relief.

I just got caught in a torrential downpour, which is still going on.  I've had no caffeine today and the breathing thing is worse than ever, so I'm terribly tempted to just go and have the cup of tea that I reaaally want right now... particularly considering my drenched jeans and shoes.  The humidity seemed to make breathing harder.  I still wonder if it's seasonal.

My former health class focused mostly on Breathing While Slutty. Everyone who has sex is BAD and in mortal danger. And I'm fat *and* I have sex. I hope I survive the hour.

Yeah, but dying while having sex has gotta be one of the better ways to go, right?
