I hate winter

because it ALWAYS makes me sick!!!!! I have the symptoms of a cold, but only 1/2 of them. i’m not congested in my head (thank GOODNESS) but i have the worst soar throat and cough you could imagine. YUCK. Then add to the fact that it is pouring cats and dogs out here in socal…so i’m stuck inside being sick and miserable. ACK. And on top of that, it means i don’t get to do anything fun on my day off and the field trip i was supposed to go on tomorrow for my bird class is not going to happen, since i’d probably DIE if i went out there at 7am in the rain and cold…hrm…

Dangit! Oh well. Anyways, saw Atonement yesterday. It was SOOOO sad! It had me in tears more than once, and it takes a lot for me to cry in a movie. And what’s even more surprising to me was that I had just finished reading the book, so it’s not like i didn’t know what was going to happen! I’m such a sap! Hehe…oh well, it was still a very very good movie. I would totally recommend it to anyone, along with the book. :D
