Ahhh.. well life progresses on, and it brings us to a commonly dreaded day of Monday. To be quite honest I haven't been productive lately. I just got over a scary sickness actually. I don't have the best immune system when I get sick. Whenever I catch a virus or anything worse like the flu, my body is out for weeks and rarely months on end.
About three years ago, California had an extremely high rate for the 'Swine Flu'. I just started school the day I noticed typical cold and cough symptoms: headache, sore throat, sniffles, etc. Okay look, when I get sick in the beginning it's like a common cold. Then, it progresses into an uncontrollable sickness.
It soon became the point of me literally crawling on the floor because my stomach hurt so bad. It was my entire abdomen and chest region, not just a specific area. I ended up crawling into the car like a cripple with my mother and rushed to the soonest doctors appointment, only to be diagnosed with the 'swine flu'. I was immediately prescribed a common flu antibiotic, "Z PAK". The Z PAK made everything ten times worse. I ended up constantly blacking out due to the pain of the stomach cramps and strep throat. At that point I though I was having kidney failure, a gal bladder rupture, or some type of huge ulcers.
Little did I know, I ended up being sick for three months. Yes, you read that right: three months. Remember that I had just started school, so I ended up failing all of my classes the rest of the year because I was so far behind in grades.
But, none-the-less I haven't been sick since then. So when I got sick and missed a good two weeks of school, really scared me. I thought I was doomed again. If I missed the same amount of school, three months, I would have been kicked out already. My school does packets for school work. In one month, I have to get a minimum of four packets in to be able to continue going to the school. The packets are only like 25-70 pages depending on the class you are taking. Most kids get six-to-ten packets a month.
I'm good now, for the most part. I now have to get productive again, get off my ass, and get my shit together with all the missed classes I had. Then, hopefully I'll be able to transfer to this program the college by my house does. I get to finish my last two years of high school, and I'll get credits for two full years of basic college courses. So, when I transfer to college I can go straight to a university instead of taking the require basic classes that everyone needs to take before they head to a university.
Anyhow, what do you do to keep yourself productive?
