first off, i'd just like to state that i think it's strange that i get sick once it gets hot rather than when it's cold. i guess that just goes to show i'm a winter person. always have been, always will be.
second, i've learned that one of the things that i hate most in the world is coughing. i absolutely hate it. yeah, yeah. i know what you're thinking. who in their right mind would like coughing in the first place? but you don't understand. it hurts soo much. and when i can't get my body to stop, it freaks me out. i hate not being able to catch my breath. and it's not just the fact that i hate myself coughing; i hate hearing other people cough. especially when they cough so much and so hard that it sounds like they're about to throw up. unfortunately, that's all i've been hearing these past few days. everyone at home is sick. not fun at all.
third, i've also learned that i tend to be in denial when i get sick. at least for the first few days. i've had a sore throat since wednesday, but i didn't really think anything of it. thursday night it got a lot worse, but i thought that was just because of all the yelling i did at senior night. then friday morning i couldn't even talk when i woke up. my voice got better, but my throat didn't. after i came home from the movies that night, i got in bed at around 10:30 and told myself i was sick. i was completely knocked out. i slept through phone calls, text messages, voicemails...everything. but wow that was a good sleep.
once i declare myself sick i kind of just lay around like a rotting potato. it kinda stinks that i got sick once the weather turned perfect for longboarding. actually...it stinks a lot.
