It's that time of year again ladies and gentlemen. It's that time of year when your cousin, brother, sister, friends or others are finishing up their current semester of school. It also happens to be that time of the year when Old Man Winter is waking on the mountain and has sent Jack Frost to scour the land, sharing his gift of cold with the people.
However, it's mostly about being stressed with school...such is life. I've noticed that on top of homework, final projects, the f-word [finals], drama, and lack of sleep...cold season has started up as well. I've adopted a somewhat Carol-esqu attitude toward sickness so far in seeking to prevent my own infection, and the infection of my beloved classmates and best friends:
The best defense sometimes is a great offense when it comes to combatting sickness. Now, am I advocating what Carol's done...of course not, but please people...if you're sick, stay home.
Being a full time student, I tend to focus on the negative effects of illness on students who do not have a bankable system of sick days, or ability to regain lost days.
Be warned of the wicked germs that are floating about, and keep yourself healthy with plenty of Vitamin C to boost your immune system.
If all else fails, seek a Doctor. :-o)
