Sick Daze pt. 2

It happened. And I knew it would. 

To be honest, I can't believe I haven't gotten sick yet. Between the travel, living in a city, and the teaching of children all day, it's a miracle I've lasted an entire month (!!) in Russia. 

Oh, I was naive. A child. Reckless and running through the streets of Moscow in thin tights, without a hat! All because I wanted my top knot to make it to the club...
But that was then and I've changed. I'm a new woman. A woman who gets flu shots and carries antibacterial soap with her. A woman who goes home after work when she feels a cough brewing in her chest. A woman, who does not scoff at tea.

Maybe I didn't learn last time, but now... now my friends, I will fear the flu.

I had to chase my 25 drops of medicine with strawberry milk. It. Was. Not. Pleasant. 

So, get flu shots, my friends. Or shoot yourself up with vitamin C, whatever you have to. Beware the winter germs of death. That is all. 


  1. sorry to read that you are sick! Im sure it might have something todo with also being in a huge new place, lots of germs your body isn't familiar with. Im looking forward to reading more from you!

    1. Yeah, I agree. Getting sick in Moscow was sort of inevitable. Thanks fo reading : )

    I stumbled upon your blog from My Little Loves, in turn from Dear Baby Blog ---- and I just spent the last hour blowing off my teleplay and reading through your Russian adventures. I spent a single day in Russia over five years ago (St. Petersburg) and it left its mark on me ever since. I can't tell you how much I look forward to reading more about Moscow and the interesting people you find there. Thanks for writing :)

    1. Oh my gosh! Thank you for the kind words : ) Yeah, Russia is an incredibly beautiful and interesting place. And really underrated, don't you think? So glad to have you : )
