Rant: Springtime allergies

Rachel Zierden, Staff Writer

There is nothing more embarrassing than having someone ask if you were crying because your eyes are watery and itchy. Then you constantly have the person next to you glancing over during a test because you’re sniffling so loudly. You get headaches over and over, and there’s almost nothing you can do about it. Maybe the most annoying part is having to get up in the middle of the class while taking notes, and the whole class stares at you getting a Kleenex. “Are you okay?” is the most commonly asked question of the season. Nope, I have springtime allergies.
