Being sick is a strange state of limbo. Because you are sick, you have cleared your calendar of any serious commitments. With all this free time, it seems like it’s a great time to work on a project.

The unfortunate reality is that your calendar is clear for a reason - you are sick. Everything takes a lot more effort; it’s better to just rest and recover.

Although today is boring and annoying, it is a good reminder to be thankful for my health. The vast majority of the time, I get to take it for granted.
