10 Stages Of Being Sick During Break As Told By "Riverdale"

The perfect time to get sick: your winter break (says no one EVER).

10 Stages Of Being Sick During Break As Told By "Riverdale"

You finally come home for winter break -- ready to relax, forget about school, and enjoy time with friends and family. Then, boom. It hits you out of nowhere. Now you're sick with some type of circulating virus and must try to live through the never-ending days of cold medicine and multiple puke trips to the bathroom. Only youwould get sick during the holidays; it's the ultimate curse and end to any good time. The cast of "Riverdale," a hit CW show on its second season, can explain the terrible stages of being sick during the holidays. Their dramatic reactions and crazy plot points only help to exemplify your "the world is ending" thoughts --

1. You feel it coming.

Oh no. The symptoms slowly start to hit you throughout the day. You know it's coming, so you chug as much Emergen-C as you can and take all the cold medicines.

2. Your stomach feels...uneasy.

The uncomfortable feeling of something not normal rolls around in your stomach. You feel super uneasy, like how Kevin feels after catching Veronica in the basement with his shirtless dad?

3. You feel confident you can pull through.

For some reason, a wave of confidence rushes through you and you think you can beat this sickness. Little do you know, you'll be on the couch with Pepto and soup tomorrow.

4. Your body tries to destroy itself.

After five trips to the bathroom and a skyrocketed temperature reading, you are officially sick.

5. You can't control your emotions.

Stomach hurts? Cry. Headache? Cry. Stuffy nose? Cry. Basically, you cry because life is actually the worst right now.

6. You need attention from everyone (and lots of sleep).

It's cuddle time! You sleep for 24 hours straight with a few waking hours in between, so you need a comfy bed and plenty of attention from others to catch some well-needed zzz's.

7. You start to feel better.

You haven't puked in a full day, so you're feeling a ton better -- time to change out of those three-day-old pajamas and wash your super greasy hair full of who knows what.

8. But, you relapse.

Cue the terrible thoughts of "I'll be sick forever!" and "My body hates me!" You're back to feeling gross. Maybe it was too soon for normal activity? Back to another Christmas movie marathon.

9. You leave your house for the first time.

So this is what the outside world is like?! After days cooped up in your room, your hometown suddenly becomes 10 times better.

10. You're back to normal.

Time to break out your list of fun holiday activities and winter break plans. You died and came back to life, so treat yourself to a little fun and revive your break.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
