7. But being a college student means that just because you're sick doesn't mean you can skip class.

You have to lug your sick self across campus just to go to class.

6. Physically sitting in class hurts you everywhere.

5. Then, before you know it everyone on campus has a cold and it's just one big population of infected people.

4. Then your mom begins to call you, and realizes you're sick.

2. You begin to reminiscence on the times when you got incredible treatment as a child, and your mom took care of you in every way.
