Fever. Headache. Cough. Runny nose. Yes ladies and gentlemen, if you are experiencing these symptoms, congratulations, you are the winner of a wonderful winter flu! I, too, was a victim from this flu last week. I missed two days of school and turned in my journalism article late! Now, I don’t want this to happen to anyone else around school. I am here to save high school students and make sure if you did have or haven’t had it yet, how to keep it away. We are teenagers, we do not want to worry about germs, unfortunately it’s inevitable. WASH YOUR HANDS. Which is an obvious yet effective way of staying away from being sick. I am telling you all, it was an awful week and just because you want to miss school doesn’t mean you want to be sick. DO NOT SHARE. We see someone’s water on their desk and we quench our throats dreaming of taking a sip of that nice cold water. I’m here to tell you, don’t do it. I am also talking to the person who has the water, don’t give it away either. This is not the season where you have to avoid hygiene and be generous with your liquids. There is more than to just hygiene, you have to take care of your body as well. I know this is a neverending lecture on eating well, but it really is the unfortunate solution. The reason for being sick is having such a weak immune system: soda, candy, and burgers are not going to bring you back to health. This is more of an article a mother would write, nevertheless read it just to make you more aware. Especially for those seniors who want to have a senior ditch day (or keep a 94%). Let’s keep ourselves healthy and make it through this sort-of winter season.
