5 Reasons Why Being Sick In College Is The Worst
Whim Online Magazine

I don't know about you, but my college is an epidemic of disease this semester. We have pneumonia, the flu, mumps, strep, the common cold, and blah, blah, blah. Unless you're in your own little bubble, you're doomed to get sick. I didn't ask for this. And here's the thing, getting sick in college is the absolute worst.

1. Your mom isn't there to take care of you[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F10%2F6362236160176049412132629185_IMG_0430.GIF&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=291&h=5831285cd8072517af8391d67375f207c508b4f6983a8ff1b4de633f82320a8f&size=980x&c=1274150320 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F10%252F6362236160176049412132629185_IMG_0430.GIF%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D291%26h%3D5831285cd8072517af8391d67375f207c508b4f6983a8ff1b4de633f82320a8f%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1274150320%22%7D" expand=1]

Your mom is your savior when you're sick. Without her, you're convinced that you are actually dying. You're basically on your own, unless you have great friends to help bring you back from the brink.

2. You miss one lecture and you're behind a whole week[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F10%2F636223620176494193-1446253347_IMG_0432.GIF&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=594&h=4d29f235f732fdb034882d923575fbc441d3044b12cf64328bbf23f11733b29a&size=980x&c=3223317921 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F10%252F636223620176494193-1446253347_IMG_0432.GIF%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D594%26h%3D4d29f235f732fdb034882d923575fbc441d3044b12cf64328bbf23f11733b29a%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3223317921%22%7D" expand=1]

Let's face it, professors like to put a lot of information on those slides. They like to have you take a lot of notes and do homework and take quizzes and take tests and ugh so rude.

3. The Health Center isn't much help

Either you get medicine or you don't. Either you're able to schedule an appointment or you're not.

4. You have to schedule your own doctor's appointments[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F10%2F636223618590915949-827696441_IMG_0431.GIF&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=732&h=974f918d18b9e71ec2a3a3ce676a9be4a607e968532ed09ed90026bf0c413730&size=980x&c=1723283422 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F10%252F636223618590915949-827696441_IMG_0431.GIF%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D732%26h%3D974f918d18b9e71ec2a3a3ce676a9be4a607e968532ed09ed90026bf0c413730%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1723283422%22%7D" expand=1]

It's a scary thing, okay. Don't make me be an adult yet.

5. The medicine aisle is way confusing[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2017%2F02%2F10%2F636223622793249327866560191_IMG_0433.GIF&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=889&h=e4b707563b63718627573230dc04eb1713af275256da65c8934d3add2fe6a836&size=980x&c=4230966927 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2017%252F02%252F10%252F636223622793249327866560191_IMG_0433.GIF%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D889%26h%3De4b707563b63718627573230dc04eb1713af275256da65c8934d3add2fe6a836%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4230966927%22%7D" expand=1]

Which one am I supposed to get? There's way too many options. Seriously, just get all the medicine manufacturers together and have them combine their ingredients to make a cure. Problem solved.

Your Work Week As Told By Michael Scott And Stanley Hudson

"The Office" is basically the best American TV show created in the past 15 years (you can fight me on this). And through all its hilarity and cringe-worthy "that would never happen in real life" moments, the show really does have a lot of relatable themes, as can be seen by the little compilation I put together of Michael Scott and Stanley Hudson.

The Plight Of Being Bigger Than A D-Cup

"Big boobs are like puppies: they're fun to look at and play with, but once they're yours, you realize they're a lot of responsibility." - Katie Frankhart, Her Campus


This probably sounds like the most self-absorbed, egotistical, and frankly downright irritating white-girl problem... but there's more to this I promise.

The Mystery Of The Gospel

Also entitled, "The Day I Stopped Believing In God"


I had just walked across the street from the soccer field back to the school. I turned around and saw the cars rushing, passing each other, going fast over the crosswalk where I had been moments earlier. “It would be so easy to jump in front of one of them,” I thought, looking at the cars. “I could jump, and this life that I’m stuck in would be over.”
