Regardless, it's a bummer. Especially because I am very busy this week and have no time for illness! Yesterday I had an extra-long dance rehearsal. Tonight I have part II of the synchro team tryouts, then a team dinner, then the dress rehearsal for my dance show. Tomorrow I'm having a belated birthday dinner with my mom/dad/sister, then friday is my dance show. This weekend I'm supposed to spend time with my sis and bro, helping build a patio.
Weird factoid I was able to discover by reading my journal: I had a cold for my birthday last year as well. Although that one I contracted before my birthday, while this one I actually got for my birthday. (I always give myself the best presents.)
Anyway, so far it's unpleasant but it hasn't really stopped me from doing anything too important. Hopefully it will stay that way, and then it will go away quickly.
