Things I’ve learned from Being Sick for the Last Week

I’ve been sick for over a week now, and I’m just going to give you some reasons why you shouldn’t go to school when you’re sick. 

  • You’re going to get your bestie sick.
  • You’re going to hate everything.
  • Staying awake in math class is 20 times harder.
  • You fall asleep on the bus and embarrass yourself.
  • You don’t care about your makeup so you only put mascara on.
  • You don’t care about your clothes so you wear a big sweater at all times.
  • People look at you like you’re going to die at any second.
  • People think it’s disgusting when you cough.
  • Your teacher HIDES the Kleenex from everyone!
  • You start your period.
  • You start hiding Kleenex in your purse to survive.
  • You take allergy pills to barely make it through the day.
  • Every single day feels like a month.
  • Every night you tell yourself you’ll get better but you never do.
  • You start wondering if this is worse than dyeing. 
  • You tell these thoughts to your bestie and she agrees with you on these thoughts.
  • It’s not a good idea to have a sleepover while sick.
  • Food tastes plain.
  • It’s hard to paint your nails.
  • Your life just sucks.
