IN THE AFTERNOON: Dealing with being sick while in college

Being sick sucks

And what sucks more is when your in college and sick because although professor give you days for being sick that might not always be the case for you

It might be a daily thing or a monthly thing that of course you can’t control

I am very happy that my stomach issues have gone away and I am no longer sick with the cold but a new sickness has arises

First let me say I swear I do not get sick this often its just been a crazy year and I have been dealing with headaches forever

Probably ever since high school, then it kind of went away and I barely got any headaches

Then I started to get this very painful headaches mid summer and starting school

I also started to notice patterns like when I would go from being hot outside to going into an AC room I would get a headache and sleeping in the dark lessen my headaches

I usually take pills for my headaches because its the only way they go away but you should always talk to your doctor before taking any pills

Anyways I just kept getting headaches everyday and it was a pain cause I would be in class and boom headache and ultimately this was just ridiculous

Then I started to google because who doesn’t and found that I might have migraines which I was like great because its obviously something thats not curable but I didn’t let that stop me from going to class

I always think about people that have worst sicknesses then me and how they still manage to get up and do what they have to so now I just know my triggers and try to avoid them as much as possible

I also bring my medication with me just in case my migraines hit while I am in class

Some tips for those that have suffer from headaches always bring medication and if your head really hurts and the class is big take a nap and put your head down. If you do not have that option and your class is small then excuse yourself if its to the point that you cannot handle it and email your professor explaining why you had to leave.

Professors do understand these situations, they are humans too.

So yeah I just come prepared and know my limits if I know theres no way I can make it to class email your professor 

Take your medication with you if possible and just be as positive as possible everyday

Thanks guys for being here! share your experiences in the comment section if you were ever sick in college and how you dealt with it. Have a fun day!

Side Note: Curly Hair Troubles

So this is a random post hence the side note

And today since I have some time off I just wanted to talk about my curly hair

Recently I’ve been using my regular hair products that I adore but I felt like I needed something new

I am thinking about trying some other products out in order to see what works best for me since the weather is changing

My sister has been using the Briogeo hair products and she loves them

I have sneaked in some of her products as well and I adore them and am thinking of purchasing a couple of products from their avocado line

I’ve also heard the ApHogee and Ovation products are really good so I might try those as well

I usually wear my hair out or in a bun or braids so I always need frizz control products

I also want to buy a treatment for hair growth but I’m unsure which to buy.. any suggestions? I was thinking of getting some curly hair extensions (we will see) because sometimes I just want my hair to have some length

My hair is very prune to frizz which is why I constantly change up my products


This is my hair on the second day

I LOVE my frizz but sometimes I want it tame :))))

Have a great day guys and thanks for reading my rambles !


Theres nothing wrong with asking someone for help

And I know its hard for some people because being prideful is a really hard thing to deal with

And having to ask for help could seem more like a job then actually something that could help you in the future

BUT we all need help sometimes no matter how independent we might think we are

And it could be for the smallest thing or for a life changing thing but you need help

So ask for help!

You might not like the answers and you might not even like what people have to tell you or when they also include their opinion along with their answer

But thats a step you took and eventually if you keep asking question and figure out whats the right question to ask then you’ll get the answer you want

And nothing feels better then getting the right answer

or better an answer and an action

SO I’m here to tell  you that SUCK IN YOUR PRIDE and just ask the question

and if you don’t get the answer you want then ask a better question or ask someone else because eventually you’ll get the answer

AND don’t give up just don’t….don’t do it….. I’m telling you not to

Because eventually you’ll look back and think maybe I should of done more or maybe I should have asked that question

AND last thought (promise)

If the answers are taking a little longer then usually to get to you BE PATIENT I understand I’m very impatient myself but a desperate person looking for an answer is not the best thing

So relax, ask questions and wait to see what comes along
