I hate getting colds. They’re awful. Not only are they annoying, but there is literally nothing you can do about them. I am the type of person who likes to be able to control things. I’m not a control freak, I just like having a handle on my own life if that makes sense. Which is why it’s so hard for me to sit here with a sore throat and stuffy nose and not be able to do anything about it. Maybe someday I’ll be the one to come up with the cure for the common cold. That would be great. 
It is only September, it’s not supposed to be cold season yet, but the temperature plummeted all of a sudden and now it feels more like November. Brr! So of course sickness is spreading through my school like wildfire. 
Thats the reason I want to work in medicine someday. I can’t stand seeing anyone feeling sick and not being able to help. And me with a cold is nothing compared to the young children in third world countries with malaria or other diseases that CAN be cured or at least treated. 
I’m going to go, I took some cold medicine a while ago that’s supposed to help you sleep (what is it with colds that makes sleeping so difficult?!) and it should knock me out in the next 10 minutes or so…
