There is a small spot on the back of my right calf, right in the middle, where a charlie horse has been hanging out for the past two days.

Last night, a cut appeared on the tip of my left middle finger (my best theory is from when I was scraping ice off the car) that just happens to occupy the exact part of my finger that makes contact with the keyboard when I type.

Since I woke up from my nap half and hour ago, I have found that if I tilt my head to a particular degree or twitch my eye in just the right way, there is a stabbing pain just behind my left eyebrow.

I imagine that if I just keep writing final papers for long enough, these concentrated areas would slowly build up across my body until finally cracks appeared between them and I fall into pieces. It shouldn't take too much longer, I think it's based on an exponential equation...but I only have one more ten-page paper to go and I'm not sure if it will be enough. So, my question is, would it be worth it to keep writing something after I finish my finals in order to see where this is going? Will someone be able to put me back together at the end so I can finish and publish my study? Oh my god it is so far from mattering because I never want to have to write anything again. It confuses me that I'm doing this.
