It's not been a fun weekend here, simply because I've spent most of it bundled up in bed, swigging TheraFlu and snacking on zinc lozenges. Thankfully, I seem to be over the worst of it now. We shall see how I feel in the morning.

Tomorrow is a march from the UNL campus to the state capitol to protest the additional proposed budget cuts. Back in the fall, the legislature cut a lot of money out of the university budget because the state was, well, broke. Now, the state is facing a two-year budget shortfall, so there is an additional proposed budget cut for the university. If these cuts go through, I will definitely lose my health insurance, and there will be a definite possibility that I will lose my job.

So, I'm marching tomorrow, cold or no cold. It's my ass on the line, basically. And if I can come out and show my support...maybe things won't be so bad in the future.
