My roomate has an alarm. Its noise is very piercing. It goes off for about two hours straight before turning off. Usually, this isn't a big deal, as I can just go to his room and turn it off. Unfortunately, he is away for spring break (I assume), and has locked his door. So I cannot turn off the buzzing of that hideous clock. This promises to be an exciting week.
Health update: I am recovered, probably. My only remaining symptom is stomach tightness, and I believe that is thanks to muscle strain, not illness.
