So sore...

My wisdom teeth came out on Thursday. Apparently Day 3 is the worst for pain and swelling, and then after that, you swap from cold packs to hot ones, and start recovering. I don't know whether Day 3 is Saturday or Sunday, I guess it depends on whether you start counting from 0 or 1. I guess VB fans would say today is Day 3. I'd say it's tomorrow. Either way, I'll start using hot packs tomorrow, and hope that the pain reduces.

Pain killers are my friend... And I'm thinking I shouldn't've booked in to do exams on Tuesday and Wednesday (ones I didn't get to do in beta).
