I have a nasty bruise on my arm from my annual flu shot. It’s been two weeks and it’s still there. It swelled pretty badly and the shot hurt a lot, but it was worth it. It’s important to stay on top of your immunizations. Flu season is coming, so be sure to get your vaccine soon! It should be covered by your healthcare insurance for those who have them. Otherwise, you can pay the clinic by cash between $5 to $30. Even better, with the Shot@Life campaign, your flu shot can sponsor a child’s immunization from a developing nation. Unless you’re allergic, there’s no reason not to get them.
It suddenly got hot here in Philly! Still not as scorching as Vegas, but the humidity makes summer here a tad bit more uncomfortable. I still find it a bit chilly at times. I was telling some people about how I can’t even handle 30 degree weather, and they said I better brace myself for winter then. I don’t get on with the cold at all. Pretty sure I’m gonna be wearing twenty layers this December.
It rains a lot here though. I find it so odd, but I know it’s just me. It barely rained in Vegas, and it doesn’t rain at all during summer in the Philippines. Summer showers are a new concept for me. The weather is typically considered to be a dull topic to talk about, but having lived in three different climate regions, I’m endlessly fascinated by it. I’ve never lived in a place that regularly snows either. I’ve never made a snowman or a snow angel. I can’t wait to give those a try!
Speaking of which, it’s already snowing in Calgary! That’s nuts.
