5 Things You Have to Do When You're Sick

Cold season is fast upon us and when you're avoiding social obligations and school obligations because you are on your deathbed, there are a few ways to kill some time.

1. Sleep

Doctors orders! When you're sick the best way to waste time is to sleep! Plus sleeping will actually help your sickness- I think? I'm not a doctor. Consultant you're physician.

2. Drink Water

Water is good people! Not only did it give Khole Kardashian her revenge body but it also helps flush out toxins that make you sick! You will be peeing every thirty seconds but some things are worth multiple bathrooms breaks.

3. Eat some soup

I know what you're thinking- soup is disgusting! I know. But ramen is pretty much really cheap soup, right? There's broth and there's noodles and there's a packet of rare, exotic spices so that should work. Eat some soup (ramen) and let the warm vapors cure your ailments.

4. You Whine (A Lot!)[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F09%2F26%2F636104550798202484-2083888862_200_s.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=732&h=d40d2456de44d876654c662cce6793e212088421dce039db76d49b9f4ecce8c5&size=980x&c=310913566 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F09%252F26%252F636104550798202484-2083888862_200_s.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D732%26h%3Dd40d2456de44d876654c662cce6793e212088421dce039db76d49b9f4ecce8c5%26size%3D980x%26c%3D310913566%22%7D" expand=1]

What's the best part of being sick? Whining incessantly and making sure everyone around you knows how miserable you are? CERTAINLY! Make sure to play up your illness at work, home and your local Arbys- there might be a free roast beef sandwich in it for ya!

5. Not die

Really that's the only thing you have to do when you're sick. You've got your pets and your Tinder account to think about- don't let germs kill you and you're already doing better than 90% of the human race during the Middle Ages- good for you!

Being sick is a drag but if you follow these helpful steps than you will not die and you might just come out the other side a better hydrated and more whiney person!

To Mom

There are days when you just need your mom

To Mom

There really is no way to prepare yourself for the loss of someone. Imagine that someone being the one who carried you for 9th months in their belly, taught you how to walk, fought with you about little things that only a mother and daughter relationship could understand. You can have a countless number of father figures in your life, but really as my mom always said, " you only get one mom."

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

I need someone to show that they want me for me, not that they're using me to chase the idea of being in a relationship.

The Way People In Society are Dating is Why I Don't Date

You hear your phone go off. He's asking you to hang out. Then, of course, you get the advice of your friends to decipher this text. Is it just hanging out or is it more than hanging out?
