Sick..again!

For those of you that know me, know that I get sick pretty often.

It’s nothing serious, usually just a cold/cough, but to get one every few weeks is pretty annoying. The crux of it was last fall, when I had the swine flu. Now, looking back, it was pretty funny, considering my parents were in India and it was just my brother and I.

After that, I started sleeping with a humidifier in my room and it worked wonders.  But just two weeks ago, since winter ended (I love California) the humidifier was packed and put away in the garage.

This past week we were in Chicago for a wedding. Before we left, my dad got sick. Knowing my horrible immune system, I downed Airborne before boarding the plane with him. However, couple that with a few nights of no sleep, the cold weather, as well as everyone around me getting sick, I knew that there was not enough Airborne in the world to save me.

Suffice it to say, I have a cold and a cough..again. I’ve gotten sick enough times in the past year to know that my body goes through a pattern. I am currently at the stage where I can’t talk without coughing and that I have no taste buds so everything I eat tastes like cardboard.

Fun, right?

My first post!

Hi!

So it just hit me today that I don’t have a blog..despite the fact that I studied English and Communications in college, spend quite a bit of time on the computer, and LOVE to write.  I don’t know why it took me so long to create one but I am excited to have a place to write.

Here are some things you can expect me to write about in the future:

  • Television. I love watching TV (favorites including Gossip Girl, Chuck, How I Met Your Mother, Modern Family, and well..the list can go on!)  but I enjoy writing about them even more.
  • Books. I am a self-proclaimed bookworm. It’s gotten to the point where I have read every book on my shelf at least five times. I’m always looking for recommendations, so please send some my way! My favorite books would be: The Namesake, Water for Elephants, The Kite Runner, and Beneath the Marble Sky, just to give you an idea of the genres I like to read.
  • ..Anything else, really! Vague I know, but I will be writing about anything that catches my attention/I enjoy, with the hopes of sharpening my writing skills!

Hope to see you again soon. 🙂
