That nagging feelingBy Wade Kwon
Favorite song? Dunno. Favorite food? Whatever.
Favorite season? Not winter.
Even in the sunny South, Iâ€™m freezing. Chalk it up to a scrawny physique and screwy body thermostat.
Iâ€™m especially vulnerable these days, as I canâ€™t seem to shake a bug. Frustrating for me, since I donâ€™t have the energy to complete even simple tasks.
Unless you count sitting in my jammies watching TV and eating ice cream as a simple task. Which I donâ€™t.
Maybe it can be traced back to lifestyle: not enough sleep, exercise or balanced meals. Or poor genetics. Or society. I do blame society quite a bit.
In my case, itâ€™s winter. While we should put to rest once and for all the mythic link between cold temps and susceptibility to sickness, I still end up a walking zombie for many days from November to February.
Not enough to keep me from going to work. But enough to keep me from working at full capacity.
And I am a workaholic.
So while I can do the things that must be done â€” social obligations, groceries and trips to the bathroom â€” the rest falls into a hazy shuffle of get-around-to-its.
Evenutally, Iâ€™ll bounce back, scratching my head to figure out where the time went and how to whittle down my list of to dos. At least, Iâ€™ll have my health.
Besides, I gotta prepare for allergy season.
