A couple of months ago I got a flu shot. It seemed simple, although it cost me some money, and I was a bit strapped for cash at the time, but my family convinced me that it was a wise decision to get the shot since it was at a discount, and since if I got the flu I’d be a mess ( not working or taking care of myself). I was sold. I got the shot and prayed I didn’t experience any side effects. Which I didn’t. Thank God. No chills, fever, aches, pains, or feelings of weakness.
Flash forward to this month, and a few students and staff have the flu, flu-like symptoms, or are with some kind of sickness. Quite frankly it neither looks or sounds pretty. I imagine the experience is far, far worse. I haven’t had the flu in ages, thank God, and I’m fortunate that I didn’t catch the yuckiness. People’ve asked me if I feel sick. I’ve replied with a solid “no,” and meant it. So today as I try to get a second bottle of water before a meal, I’m grateful I didn’t get sick. I pray that I don’t get sick, and I wish others a speedy recovery from any illness.
Today I’m gonna peep some movies. In the mood for action, but also trying a few films friends recommended and I ope their fun. I want to spend this day enjoying the fact that I can relax and simply be happy. Otherwise it’s going to be a long day of boredom. Been focused on absurd and nonsense ideas of late. Jotted notes down.
Happy creative endeavors.
