It has finally hit me. No, I didn’t have an aha! moment but a cold has finally come my way. When I first arrived in Ireland, everybody from my AIFS group got sick within the first week. I was thinking that my time spent in North Dakota prepared me for the weather and I was fortunate to not get as sick as all of my friends, Brittney almost had meningitis. But not me. Oh no. I was living the life, until yesterday. I woke up with a stuffy nose and knew that my time had come. Today it has progressed to a runny nose, sore throat, sneezing (which is quite dangerous if you have ever heard/seen me sneeze) and being very sleepy. This cold conveniently arrived the week that I have 2 midterms worth 30% of my final grade each. A cold + midterms = one unhappy camper.
On a positive note, Halloween is just around the corner and a big shout out goes to the banks. We get that Halloween Monday off because of some bank holiday. Oh happy day!
If anyone has any costume suggestions, I am open to anything. I wanted to be Black Mamba from Kill Bill but I could find a yellow sweatsuit. But I’m willing to consider anything if it’s fun:)
