Sadhu Vaswani is attributed with saying, “Love is selfless. It is prepared to sacrifice.” With the way the Internet can be, I am not sure if he truly said that, but I do believe these words are true.

It is finally that time of the season for…sickness! The flu, stomach bug, and allergies acting up, are all around in our air. It is around that time in the school year where everyone on campus is getting sick, especially if they live in the dorms. For me, my allergies have been the worse because of the weather changing from 75 degrees one day to 40 degrees another day. It is hard to take care of yourself while being sick at school, but here are some tips to get you on the path to feeling better and getting out of your room to go to class.
