The Pedagogy and Theatre of the Oppressed Conference Celebrates 20 years.

The alarm goes off and I smack my smartphone asleep. I sit up and try to breathe deep.

Nothing.

My nose is completely stuffed up and instead of a breath, I get a cough. I've been battling this head cold for a week now. I take a hot shower, trying to clear out my sinuses to no avail.
