It didn’t even cross my mind to study for the test that I forgot was happenin...

I have never had the flu in the past, but I have also never had the flu vaccination. The flu vaccination gives the patient a strand of the virus so t...

Some walk right past me, ignoring the “hi, how are you?” I ask each patron. Some give me a half-hearted wave and head for the bar. Others give me time to ask each question and seat them promptly.

There’s a knot in my throat. I am scared, nervous and excited all at the same time. I hope and pray in my mind that things are going to be just fine.
