Elephant Man

The weather keeps shifting from good to bad and so has me cold (at least I think it's a cold). I can get around fine but I have a sore throat, sinus problems, and a minor headache. Camp starts soon and I have almost nothing to do apart from what I give myself to do.

The Discovery channel has a new special about the Chinese Elephant Man. He has elephantitis of the face. They are doing a series of plastic surgeries to help keep him alive. Luckily he lives in the 21st century because he does have a chance. I feel like it isn't that difficult to watch because his face almost looks fake (like from a science fiction movie). It kind of makes me feel lucky for living in America and being healthy and having the chance to go to college.
