In sickness and in hell

Isn't it amusing when the worst-case scenario turns out significantly better than the expected-case scenario?

I'm having severe asthma trouble right now, from the construction dust in the air and the assorted odors of the solvents and the other crap from the home rennovation. Furthermore, some of my mother's plants are blooming on the porch, which is right next to where my bed is. Apparently, having an air cleaner on "high" isn't good enough; I'm really damn sick right now.

The upshot to this is that my parents are not irrational people. I'm going to be heading back to campus tomorrow. I'll have no food easily available; that which is across the street from my dorm is shut down, and that which I have to trudge across campus for shuts down at 8:00 PM. But I'd be too sick here for staying home to be a viable option; I need to go somewhere away from the construction dust, and since my mother canceled the trip to Indiana due to inclement weather (fortunately for me), that means I have to go back to campus.

I seem to remember that I need to contact ResLife about that, but for the life of me I can't find anywhere at where it says that. For people who also go to Washington University- do any of y'all have information about that?

At least I won't be stuck at home. This place is like a prison, especially when my parents' plan was for me to be confined to three rooms of it because they thought they could keep the construction dust limited so I wouldn't get sick. So much for that plan. I'll be able to actually get my homework done on a computer that actually does what I need. I know my parents were looking forward to my being home for the week, but that's simply not working; I don't like short-changing them, but it's my only option at the moment.

I guess I actually can get the stuff on-campus done that I needed to get done. Who knew that serious asthma trouble could be so fucking convenient?
