I don’t feel well today. It is not necessarily from our diet; I have had sick, sneezy students for the past two weeks. I woke up this morning with a sore throat and a headache that seemed to get worse as the day went on. It is 7:20 right now, I feel achy and all I want to do is go to sleep (don’t worry I am not looking for sympathy, I am just letting you know how I feel).
I am staying home from school tomorrow so that I can get some rest and try to get better. With limited fuel, I don’t want to run myself down too much.
With almost every action, I have been comparing my situation to those in need, or my perception of those in need. I am taking a sick day from work and it is a pain to make sub plans. I was at school late tonight making sure everything was in place so that I can take a day to get well. However, I will not be docked any pay or have a risk of losing my job because I do not go in tomorrow. This is not the case for many working poor around the world.
That is all for tonight. I don’t have much to say.
