    Vitamin C!!

    Okay I totally just posted about it in the good news thread :rofl1: But I am a believer in it! I use the generic Walgreens stuff, but Airborne and Emergen-C would be the brand names. It's just a giant shot of vitamin c - 1000mg. Pour it in a small glass of water, drink up. Tastes pretty good. And it's fizzy. Which is awesome.

    Definitely doesn't hurt to try! :p

    I hate astronomy. I just want to talk about all the pretty stars, but no. It's actually really complicated and technical and stuff. And I have way too much to study for all of my finals next week.

    I have a friend who made that fatal mistake. The class is super intensive, lots of complicated math, making all the math/physics she already learned not make sense because you are dealing with other planets.. it's a mess lol

    What is really sucky is that the professor kept is super fluffy and fun "oh look at the pretty constellations!"
    until the add/drop period was over.

    When I did astronomy we had to chart the **** moon...IN THE MIDDLE OF MINNESOTA WINTER. It was terrible. And you couldn't skip a night, because it was basically impossible to fudge the numbers in the calculations.

    And the labs were ridiculously hard. And confusing.

    IT IS SO CONFUSING. But he posts pretty pictures with super interesting descriptions and I get all excited about it again. Then I get to the actual work and want to die. I like math, but there is more math and physics involved than I signed up for. Let's just talk about stars and why they're pretty. I don't want to talk about Obler's Paradox and primordial nucleosynthesis and the cosmic microwave background. :(

    Will do! Thank you! I will get some between my morning and afternoon shift to see if I feel any better by this afternoon! Otherwise I may have to take off of work this afternoon. I feel absolutely horrible.

    Hope you feel better soon.

    Last night I wanted a sandwich and milkshake through drive thru. The kid at the window was a bit snotty and he didn't put the lid on the shake all the way so when I grabbed it the whole cup fell in my lap. I had peppermint milkshake all over my pants, seat and my passenger seat. Thankfully I had a towel in my car that I used to wipe as much off as I could and I laid down one of my extra shirts to sit on. My leg was freezing for a while too.

    I was NOT happy!

    Thank you Amber! I got the emergen-c and took it a few minutes ago. How long does it take to work/what kind of results will I see? Also it says you can't take it up to twice daily, do you do that Southpaw? There aren't that many in there so I didn't want to waste them.

    I take it once a day but I started taking it at the very first sign that I thought I was getting sick. If you're in like, full-blown illness mode lol I would take it twice. For me it prevented my cold from ever getting worse, and I feel like I kicked the cold faster than I normally would have, and faster than anyone in my family was able to!

    Even if you don't think it helps this time I think it'd be worthwhile for you to keep on hand, since you work with kids and are probably exposed to bugs all the time! I've stopped taking it now since I'm better but my future plan is to just start taking it whenever I'm around sick people.

    My package is supposed to be delivered today, but they either haven't scanned it, or they forgot to pick it up last night from its starting point.

    This apartment smells, how do people stand living with neighbors and their stinky cooking permeating the walls?

    Eww, that's one thing I couldn't stand about apartment living. You have to deal with all of the funky smells.
