So last week was my first week back from Christmas break. It was long and grueling. But, as the week slowly passed, I kept reminding myself that I had a three day weekend. (Martin Luther King Jr. Day was on Monday.) That's right, another entire day to do what I want! (besides the pile of homework I was assigned.) Saturday and Sunday were great. My brother's birthday was on Saturday so my family and I hit up this really good sushi place. Sunday was more or less the same, just not as wild.
Then Monday came.
I woke up around nine and I felt horrible. Absolutely horrible. I was sweating from being so hot, but covered in goosebumps from being so cold. My stomach was churning. My throat was raw and sore. And on top of that, I felt lightheaded everywhere I walked. So for most of the day I was bound to my bed, unable to move in the slightest.
Then today came.
Now I didn't know that I could feel any worse. But I do. The second I woke up (around one), I was hurling left and right. It was disgusting. So I'm not going to school today. Instead I'm at home, alone with my dog. At least I have some company.
Pros: My three-day-weekend became a four-day-weekend.
Cons: Two days out of my four-day-weekend I was bogged down with a fever. The homework I didn't do yesterday because I was sick I have to finish later today, because let's face it (my parents aren't going to let me miss school more than one day in a row.)
What was your experience being sick during the school week? Let me know in the comments. And for anyone reading this while at school, don't worry, you'll get sick at some point too (and be able to extend your weekend a day or two.)
