I'm in Guam right now for work and this weekend is a 4 day for the holidays. My birthday started it off, and since a friend of ours is an instructor at the local dive shop we are getting 4 days of non stop diving for no more than the bare necessity cost (turned out to be about $50). I got sick 2 days ago. My sinuses are completely stopped up and there is fluid in my ears. I tried to see if I would be able to tough it out by diving to the bottom of our pool, and I only got 3 feet down before I thought my head was going to explode. I am stoked for my friends getting to do this, but I am so bummed that I have to sit under a tree and watch them Scuba dive without getting to join them. It just sucks because I probably won't ever come down here again and there is some amazing stuff here. Today they dove a WWII and a WWI plane wreck all at the same dive site.
Sparknotes: Got hooked up with amazing dive trip on my birthday, got sick and can't do anything now.
