The 7 Stages Of Living Through A Winter School Day In Syracuse

The 7 Stages Of Living Through A Winter School Day In Syracuse

Why are snow days not a thing in college?


The weather is always unpredictable in Syracuse. One day it will be sunny and beautiful, and the next day it will be snowy and frigid. When blizzards hit, we all are miserably trudging through life.

1. Class canceled?

You wake up and look out the window to see nothing but white. You rush to look at your email and no, class is not canceled. Your professor has decided to drive through a hazardous blizzard just to have a 55-minute class. How rude.

2. Snow plows everywhere

You somehow got out of your cozy bed to trudge through the snow to class. Then out of nowhere, you are minding your own business when a snow plow comes at you from behind.


You are struggling to make your way through the inches of slush when you eventually hit a layer of black ice. You may even trip, but then you snap back up before anyone else sees. But let's be real, someone saw.

4. "I can't see!"

The wind, snow, and ice are all too much to handle. You forgot your hat, so now your face and ears are vulnerable to the icy hands of Syracuse's weather. It's a miserable walk to class.

5. The sweat

You finally make it to class and sit down. Little do you know, you have so many layers on that you start to sweat profusely. This is definitely not a cute look.

6. Classes are over!

You have completed your final class of the day. You are so happy that your walk back home seems faster than before.

7. Back to bed

You have fulfilled your duties as a student. You did it. Now you can reward yourself to getting in bed. See you tomorrow.

Everyone remembers the first time they went to one of the Disney parks. Spinning in teacups and having Goofy wrap his arms around my 8-year-old self were some of my fondest childhood memories, and I'm surely not alone in that.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
