The Cold Chronicles 風邪物語

Journal for 2005-10-5 Wed..
Weather: Cloudy Plan: Akana Ele.

I had a cold on Friday, but it hadn't turned bad yet. The kids at Akana Ele. were just as hyper as the kids at Kijima Ele. I had a lot of energy when I was teaching classes, but during the breaks, instead of playing with the kids I rested in the teacher's room. Teaching at elementary schools is my favorite part of the job, so next year I am going to try for an elementary school-only ALT position. I'll do my best next year, too!
Monday was my super cold day! I felt fine in the morning...or so I thought! I was teaching the 9th graders in the 1st period when suddenly I got a headache, and a fever. The Cold demon hath returnth! 2nd period was free for me, but I sat at my desk just getting worse. I had a temp. of 37.5 degrees so I went home for the day. I went to see Dr. Wada in Akana. In the afternoon all I did was take my meds. and sleep.
Tuesday, my cold was slowly fading away. I only taught one class, but for saftey's sake I went home after lunch. I have lost my focus this week. I want to study hard like I did in summer vacation starting next week. My plan to become a Foreign Service Officer seems like a a dream of the distant future, so it is difficult for me to continually pump myself up for it.
Today was the City/County New Player Sports Tournies so only the Brass Band students and the 9th graders came to school today. I still have a cold, but my fever is gone, my head feels OK, and I have stopped sweating as much. The medicine that Dr. Wada gave me really seems to have helped, although it tastes pretty disgusting. I have stopped exercising because my stomach still hurts, but if I am feeling better tomorrow, I will start it up again.
