Living in a residence hall is taking a toll on my immune system. I’ve officially been sick more often than I’ve been well in the past two months. Ugh.
“Are you taking vitamins?”
“Are you exercising?”
“Are you eating right?”
There’s only so much a girl can do when living with 350 other people, using the same elevator, touching the same hand rails, opening the same doors. Agh!
But this is what I signed up for. Sometimes, building community isn’t all fluffy and sunshiney. Sometimes, I have to remember that I’m hopefully making a difference in someone’s day or life, even when I’m resentful that I caught another cold.
This isn’t a field of perfection, and my future career doesn’t come without its challenges. It just happens that my biggest challenge at the moment is how to keep myself well short of bathing in Lysol and rolling around in a bubble. 🙂
