If Vaccines Were College Majors

The debate of whether or not you want your kids to be vaccinated is not here to be discussed but imagine seeing these diseases on YOUR college campus.

If Vaccines Were College Majors

Vaccinations are a big thing for newborns and young children so that they can be immune to diseases as they continue to grow. Polio, Rabies, and Hep-A have been listed as 'Inactivated/killed' (according to Carrington College's website), so these will be excluded.

However, the seven main vaccinations that are going to be presented will be reimagined as college majors. Buckle up, this is going to be a bumpy ride!

1. Rotavirus — Biology major

Rotavirus is a disease that infects infants and young children in their intestines (yuck!). It can cause diarrhea, vomiting, fever, and other symptoms. Biology studies the literal art of humans, animals, and environments' internal structure. Expect Rotavirus to be in your BIO 100 course freshman year, nose deep in the textbook on the first day of school.

2. Yellow Fever — Hospitality Management major

Hospitality Management major, aka 'I travel almost all the time and get a sense of tourism'. There's one person you know on campus that is either that major or close to it. Yellow fever is an infection from an infected mosquito in tropical or warm areas, so they wear repellent and other avoidance of this disease. Happy travels!

3. Shingles — Nursing major

Shingles, or Zoster (official name), are painful rashes that can appear on your body as you get older. Children suffering from chickenpox could develop into shingles as they get older. Shingles is the Nursing major in a similar class, studying how to care for patients and work in the medical world. They're always searching for answers, working close to doctors, and making sure their careers involve happy faces at the ER and such. Make friends with a Nursing major, but don't get shingles.

4. Influenza — Undecided major

They're everywhere on campus, so just go with it.

5. Measles/Mumps — Government/Political Science major

Measles and Mumps cause rashes, temporarily lose your appetite, and other harms to your body. Government or Political Science majors closely study history, culture, actions, and governments in general in order to develop more critical thinking methods of interacting state and the individual.

6. Smallpox — Computer Science major

Smallpox also causes increasingly painful rashes, dents, and bumps on your skin. Increasingly painful, just like the study of computer science. Those who choose to pursue that as a major go through tons of classes relating to comp engineering, software development, and computers in general. Maybe one day, that CompSci kid you knew sophomore year becomes the next Steve Jobs or Bill Gates.

7. Chickenpox — Communications major

Chickenpox is another form of rashes, except they appear as red blotches on skin. Many kids have suffered from this once, including myself. Communications involves storytelling, radio, and some forms of writing. You'll definitely encounter a Communications major on campus, always telling stories and having a contagious personality...er, sorry, an embraceable personality.

Overall, these majors and vaccines go hand-in-hand!

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

675

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

My Astral Life

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves. I realize not everyone believes in astrology-related anything, and there are plenty of people who don't fit their signs. However, I'm one of the people who truly fits their sign to a tee. I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
