For some odd reason I’m always getting sick…I don’t know how, I don’t know why, I kinda just go with it. Woke up this morning around 7 (thanks to my lovely puppy barking at me) barley able to breathe out my nose, coughing up a storm, and honestly felt like death. After I slugged down the steps to my living room and plopped down on the couch, I took a lovely 4 1/2 hour nap. I did not want to do anything today besides rest, but I guess my mind had other plans for me. I find that being sick can actually be beneficial to you if you really let yourself be productive. Since there was nothing to watch on TV, and had already finished all my shows I recorded the night before, I put on Deadpool and did a few productive things. Side note: if you don’t know me personally, you need to know that I’m obsessed with Deadpool. Okay, now back to my day. While I had my movie on in the background I sat back and thought, “when am I ever going to have this much time to get things done…never’. Made myself a lovely lunch (hot dog and fries) and started my math homework-all due tomorrow plus a test, cleaned up my room, cleared out some unwanted contacts in my phone, and still had free time left.
Honestly, if you’re like me and a college student who works on days that you don’t have school and you get sick, use that day off to your advantage. Get the tasks that you keep putting off last minute done. Although the constant need to clear my nose was the most annoying thing I’ve had to deal with today, I got to learn a helpful lesson. Next time I get sick, maybe it’s because I have a lot of catching up to do in my life that should have been a priority before getting sick.
