Anthrax Anxiety?

If you haven't heard of anthrax by now, you are either very lucky or very lucky. The fact is I have now heard that word more than I ever want to again.

Living in New York makes you paranoid enough, now you have to inspect every envelope or piece of mail for some microbe that you can't see, smell or feel. What gives? Should you or I really be worried about it? Whaddya think?

I don't know about you, but I say NO! I mean come on, enough already. Let's talk about anthrax. It is a bacterium, which means that it can be treated with antibiotics. Okay?? Nuff said. Unfortunately, there have been three deaths, but everyone else who has been in contact with Mr. Anthrax has been treated and is doing fine.

So the point is don't worry. Wash your hands. Look at your mail. Use common sense, don't open mail that is not addressed to you, or doesn't have a return address. If you have any doubt, put it in a plastic bag and call the authorities. But don't panic.

There is so much hype about all of the bad things that can hurt us. Let's look for what's good. Have fun. However, don't play practical jokes with powder or anything that can be mistaken for a bacterium that will now be nameless. Putting baby powder or baking soda in an envelope or leaving it around can be pretty serious. Peeps all over the country are getting thrown into the slammer with the key tossed away for a joke that seemed funny at the time.

So have a great day. Stay healthy and keep smiling.

    Does Math Stress You Out?

    • No way. I'm a math genius.
    • A little. I have to take some deep breaths before an exam.
    • Totally. Math terrifies me.

    Hii, i want to give advice to all of you about this subject. first of all, always trust your BFF. why?, it's because she/he is the one who makes you feel like a family and always be there with you. Second, always remember your BFF where ever you are. i got this idea from my bff whose not n the same school with me. 8 February was her birthday while i said happy birthday to her 2 day later (i know i'm the worst). i literally panicked and said sorry to her like a thousand times. while she said "it's okay, i'm glad someone in your school (because some of us transfers here at my new school too) remembers my birthday, maybe all of them already forget me" she answered (which i'm touched). and the last, never ever betray your BFF. like i said at the start, they are like your family and will do anything for you to be happy. so keep their trust too. and that's all from me, hope it's helpful. love ya [s:sm3/1jw1]

    I don't know you and I'm not exactly sure how you act, but being friendly is definitely the way to go. Don't change yourself for ANYBODY. Especially someone who you don't need to impress. Speaking of impressing, don't try, do. If you are telling a story and that happens to impress them than that's great! But don't go out of your way to try to make yourself look awesome because I'm sure you already are. Be yourself. But the most important thug now you can do is not try to make a million friends. Because personally I would rather have one AWESOME friend than a million ok friends. I hope this helped. :)
