This week has been very tough for me. There has been crazy good waves while I have been home sick. On Monday I felt a little bit under the weather throughout the morning, but I thought it was due to my lack of sleep. After school I heard the waves were pumping so I drove to sandbar. Previously to this it was raining pretty hard which makes the water disgusting! I put on my wetsuit in the parking lot and noticed my throat was hurting a little. I told myself that it was due to my throat being dry, so I drank some water and made my way down to the beach. As I was walking up, I saw a couple of my friends. They told me the waves were super fun but the water was nasty! I was happy to hear about the waves, so I quickly paddled out. I surfed for about two hours and then the crowd started to double. I got a bunch of fun waves and then went in. I got out of my wetsuit and realized that my throat was really starting to hurt. I drove home and instantly made some tea. The tea felt good on my throat, but it kept on getting worse. I went to bed early hoping that I would feel better in the morning, but that was not the case.
I ended up going to my first period (english) on Tuesday because I had a presentation that I needed to finish. After I finished the presentation, I went home and watched T.V. and slept for the remaining part of the day. I was not getting any better so I decided to stay home on Wednesday as well. I tried to get some work done on Wednesday because I was so behind. I still did not feel any better, but I forced myself to go to school on Thursday. I tried to not talk at school because my throat hurt so bad, but it was a challenge because I wanted to catch up with all of my friends. After school I went home and tried to finish all of my homework so I could get a good night of sleep before Friday.
