Getting Sick In College

Why getting sick in College is the struggle


College is difficult in general, but when you get sick it is even more of a struggle. Here are 10 reasons getting sick in college suck.

1.You might have to miss class:

We all have those classes that we know we can't miss whether attendance is taken or not. Skip College Algebra.... or better yet, skip a lab. Not only is that the only day you will be skipping for the entire semester, that day is also going to be getting pay back for weeks to come.

2.You might have to go to class sick:

Now we all know that by the end of the semester we have probably used our skip(or skips should I say). If that is the case you might have to just toughen up and go to class sick. Going to class sick is embarrassing and a hassle. For one some of your classes are extremely long so you will need a break or two. Those breaks will probably also consist of you running to the bathroom to stop the fluid that refuses to stop running from you.

3. You don't really have someone taking care of you:

Back in high school when I was sick my grandma would make me potato soup, and we'd watch old cartoons. In College I have to make my own food, or I have to get up and go to the cafe. Since I don't really like making food or walking when I'm sick, chances are I'm going to end up laying in bed sick for a good minute.

4.You have to Schedule an appointment:

Being an adult mean scheduling your own appointments in general, but honestly this one is just something I don't like to do.

5.Peace and quiet doesn't exist:

Whether it's your roommates or neighbors, if you're on a college campus or in an area affiliated that means rough sleep.

6.The fun doesn't stop because you did:

When you're sick your friends aren't going to stop having fun. Which mean laying in bed while they party with out you.

7. You will be blamed for any illness anyone gets:

We all know that when our friends get sick after hanging out with us that they are 99.9% of the time going to blame us for any cough of sneeze they have for they next several days.

8. You are going to see people at your worse:

Whether it's that cute girl or boy in your Chem class or the teacher you were trying to finest for a better grade, you are probably going to see them during your time of sickness.

9. No time to be alone:

When a person is sick chances are they want to just lay in bed alone with some Netflix....well no can do. You have roommates and they are probably staring at you from their bed.

10.You don't have your pet:

The biggest struggle about college sickness is the lack of your fuzzy friend.

Well their you have it the biggest struggles of College sickness. Other than these there are no differences. So pull up the WebMD and turn Netflix on.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

Honey has been a staple in my Ayurvedic skincare routine since I was a kid and my grandmother used to make me homemade paste-like face masks by mixing chickpea flour, turmeric, honey, and yogurt together.

I now use honey head to toe — on my hair to make it extra shiny, on my face for its natural smoothing and anti-bacterial properties, and the rest of my body for its extreme textural and brightening benefits. Some people even use it on their armpits for honey's lightening effect on the skin.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
