Cough Cough

Being sick in law school is the pits. Once one person in your LO has the sniffles, you know its only a matter of time that you have a Rudolph nose and are carting around travel size tissues, sister-made chicken soup, and Nyquil. 4-day bug is definitely going around, and I think I’m on the upswing.

Best tips I’ve heard for fighting away the law school sniffles:

  1. Treat your body right. Tea, fruits, veggies, soup, love, and sleep!
  2. Call in favors from your friends. They’ll share their notes if you can’t get out of bed.
  3. Email professors (especially if they have asked) to let them know you won’t be there. Nothing worse than being cold-called and absent.
  4. Carry tissues with you at all times. There is a disturbing lack of tissues available.
  5. Wash your hands. Duh.
  6. Get sleep over finishing your reading! If you are groggy and foggy in class, you won’t understand what’s going on anyway.
  7. Theraflu, Theraflu, Theraflu.
  8. Orange juice, Orange juice, Orange juice.

A restorative weekend of sleep, eating well, and more sleep is just what the Doctor ordered. Should be fresh as a spring chicken come Monday!
