For the past few days I have needed to miss school because of a high fever and coughing due to the flu. The flu is not fun at all to have. It sucks. My mom shocked me by her wanting me to stay home and I wanted to go to school. I guess I knew I had important things going on that I shouldn’t miss but, I needed these few days to rejuvenate. I have been telling myself that I will be able to catch up and that I need to take time for myself. Usually I would be so happy to be missing school but, now I think it is boring staying home doing nothing. School feels like it goes by slow but, when you are at home it goes by so much faster. My point being is that you do not realize how fast things go until you actually think about it. Remember that everything will be ok and to use your tools.
