11 Things Johnson & Wales' Students Are Sick Of Hearing

I am just saying what all the Johnson & Wales students are thinking...

1. "Oh Johnson & Wales, that's the cooking school right?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892022306711874-1834053317_giphy-1.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=887&h=321aa9e448eb7419a887120239e0b4ec0198388bd0f41c1eb121b8828300ac06&size=980x&c=3366820451 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892022306711874-1834053317_giphy-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D887%26h%3D321aa9e448eb7419a887120239e0b4ec0198388bd0f41c1eb121b8828300ac06%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3366820451%22%7D" expand=1]

You are so far from wrong, it is not even funny. JWU has so many other majors, including engineering, graphic design, and even a new physician assistant program. Please don't ask the follow up question either of "Oh so it is not just a culinary school"? You have to be kidding.

2. "I am sure even though you are a tourism major, you can still cook right?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F6358920249455414681281174982_giphy-2.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=326&h=b51c3d33829ac557c507a63c7967a0a306ae60678da4470fdaff31e5d0a5d673&size=980x&c=1853242015 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F6358920249455414681281174982_giphy-2.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D326%26h%3Db51c3d33829ac557c507a63c7967a0a306ae60678da4470fdaff31e5d0a5d673%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1853242015%22%7D" expand=1]

Negative! I literally just got a cook book for Christmas that is called "How to Boil Water". We still have our daily struggles of making mac and cheese perfect, and getting the right cereal to milk ratio.

3. "What do you mean you don't have a football team?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892026168102547-1513063874_200.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=177&h=eacacce0168e04ad4cbc33293ff68eed29eeb3eb62f492ae4558eaa50d3fa561&size=980x&c=2454665636 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892026168102547-1513063874_200.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D177%26h%3Deacacce0168e04ad4cbc33293ff68eed29eeb3eb62f492ae4558eaa50d3fa561%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2454665636%22%7D" expand=1]

Believe me, if we could, we would! That has been brought up to Athletics on SO many occasions. To be honest, I just think they do not want to face the fact that they would probably suck.

4. "What are trimesters?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F6358920290437015651992917461_200-1.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=437&h=30fddb8a16d031518f1afd5749ee318990532773faa8da9fdb32cdba70e8f92d&size=980x&c=877018154 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F6358920290437015651992917461_200-1.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D437%26h%3D30fddb8a16d031518f1afd5749ee318990532773faa8da9fdb32cdba70e8f92d%26size%3D980x%26c%3D877018154%22%7D" expand=1]

Going out on a limb here and assuming everyone knows that "tri" means three. We literally have three terms, just as it sounds. One trimester ends before Thanksgiving, another ends before spring break, and the last one ends before summer.

5. "You never have classes on Fridays? OMG I should have went there!"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892031089795816-1011374853_giphy-4.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=459&h=67369e18634e6fe182804d390e08991b1c0f911345a3821124dd7c2ee06560be&size=980x&c=1351007346 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892031089795816-1011374853_giphy-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D459%26h%3D67369e18634e6fe182804d390e08991b1c0f911345a3821124dd7c2ee06560be%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1351007346%22%7D" expand=1]

Yes. Yes you should have. It is even better than it sounds.

6. "You can get your degree in that?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F63589203234486693565709815_200-3.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=176&h=2fb9783a36de90348739caf2b72d221ffb78c9a46a85259132f86d5c4c13bef6&size=980x&c=2279057484 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F63589203234486693565709815_200-3.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D176%26h%3D2fb9783a36de90348739caf2b72d221ffb78c9a46a85259132f86d5c4c13bef6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2279057484%22%7D" expand=1]

I am a Travel and Tourism Major, and, yes, that is an actual major. One of the best ones out there, sorry you didn't think of it! I will literally travel the world, while getting paid for it. I love my major.

7. "The food at your school must be so good!"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892034402030915-444451751_200-4.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=189&h=0e89ec924526224e0c28428b7e20df61e2ca41a5ccccc19df4894bfb2eede821&size=980x&c=988773313 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892034402030915-444451751_200-4.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D189%26h%3D0e89ec924526224e0c28428b7e20df61e2ca41a5ccccc19df4894bfb2eede821%26size%3D980x%26c%3D988773313%22%7D" expand=1]

I can assure you that our school's food is nothing more than a run down Applebee's at best. The school tries to get too fancy and serve us food like veal, yet cannot make a decent grilled cheese.

8. "Why is your winter break so short?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892036282243471881340569_200-5.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=214&h=4aab17222f322e38a1347b59ec11fbdaec52305137fa03740a819894a9f313c3&size=980x&c=4117930875 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892036282243471881340569_200-5.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D214%26h%3D4aab17222f322e38a1347b59ec11fbdaec52305137fa03740a819894a9f313c3%26size%3D980x%26c%3D4117930875%22%7D" expand=1]

Please see the response to question four. We are literally in the middle of a trimester when we break for the holidays. It sucks.

9. "So you are a culinary major?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892045297390870-1744313338_200-6.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=698&h=b659f829b2d761c49dbea1ebd5881ba4f9a61adee64b186141deb83d9fd9984e&size=980x&c=3259516619 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892045297390870-1744313338_200-6.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D698%26h%3Db659f829b2d761c49dbea1ebd5881ba4f9a61adee64b186141deb83d9fd9984e%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3259516619%22%7D" expand=1]

I had to put this one twice because it literally is the most frustrating question and the most frequent. I am not a culinary major.

10. "Wait so you took graduate level courses before you even got your Bachelors?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F6358920504199275611364092262_200-7.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=839&h=97d4ceb3224a918b9a0cd52060591ed537770de3cf32b1e054ecced5b749bdb6&size=980x&c=1736600440 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F6358920504199275611364092262_200-7.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D839%26h%3D97d4ceb3224a918b9a0cd52060591ed537770de3cf32b1e054ecced5b749bdb6%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1736600440%22%7D" expand=1]

Yes! It is the 4+1 program and it's for all the overachievers out there!

11. "Waking up for my 8 a.m. sucks so bad."

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F01%2F24%2F635892052655416464-440326785_200-8.gif&ho=http%3A%2F%2Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com&s=642&h=d8c44a37e71a157288aca150d5d2da7d6c8dcc4fc4674e0ee2c903f5db4816af&size=980x&c=2363758158 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F01%252F24%252F635892052655416464-440326785_200-8.gif%26ho%3Dhttp%253A%252F%252Fcdn1.theodysseyonline.com%26s%3D642%26h%3Dd8c44a37e71a157288aca150d5d2da7d6c8dcc4fc4674e0ee2c903f5db4816af%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2363758158%22%7D" expand=1]

Try waking up for a 7:10 in the middle of winter. That extra 50 minutes really makes a difference. You feel like a walking zombie for the rest of the day. Thank God there is no school on Fridays!

Can we stop explaining ourselves now?

As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.

Reclaim Your Weekends From The 'Sunday Scaries' With 'Self-Love Sundays' Instead
Olivia DeLucia

Laid back and taking it easy — sometimes that is the motto we all need after a busy week. Sunday scaries? Yes, they are valid – but you know what else is? A Sunday full of self-love. A lazy Sunday spent doing what you feel needs to be done to ease into the next week. Self-Love Sundays are a guilty pleasure that isn't only essential for our mind, and body, but are also a surprisingly proactive way to devote the upcoming week with a clear mindset.

So, what is a more suitable way to dedicate your week's end than a beautifully, connected playlist to accompany your face masks and journaling? Cheers, to a Self-Love Sunday (and a playlist intertwined with it to match). (Please note: "Sunday Morning" isn't included in this list, due to the obvious, but feel free to blast it anyway, we know you want to).

Sunset Girl

The sun rose and peeked through the sheer curtains. Rose’s alarm shrieked. The loud bells caused her phone to jump on the side table. It was time for her to get ready for church. Blindly reaching for her phone, she shut the alarm off and pulled at the covers providing her a cocoon of warmth and tossed them to the side. She swept her bare feet across the bed to touch the cool wooden floor.

Rose softly tiptoed to the corner of the bedroom to grab her clothes dangling on the arm of the bedroom chair. Scooping all of the items of her chosen outfit, she headed to the bathroom hoping that she wouldn’t drop anything.

Round, piercing blue eyes stared back at her in the bathroom mirror. Rose fingered the wrinkles forming around her eyes. So many of them bore signs of laughter and smiling. Slowly dropping her hands, she couldn’t remember the last time she laughed in her home with Tom. Shaking her head as if to erase the negative thoughts, she reached for her makeup bag and went through her regular routine.

Applying her favorite deep rose lipstick, Rose headed downstairs to make her coffee and bagel to take with her to church. The smell of dark-roast coffee swirled in the air as Rose sliced her cinnamon raisin bagel. Hearing the Keurig sputter with the fresh brew, Rose found the interruption of the stillness comforting. The toaster signaled that her bagel was done with a soft pop. It had a delicious golden brown color. Placing the bagel on the counter, she generously spread honey nut flavored cream cheese across both halves. Gathering her bible, notebook, and pens from the side table on the porch she stuffed them into her purse. Purse hanging on her right shoulder she juggled her coffee and bagel in both of her hands as she headed to the garage.

This Holiday Season, Choose To Be Eco-friendly And Reduce Pollution

Many of us have old magazines lying around, fully read and not of much use anymore. However, we can use their bright colors and prints as a stylish and trendy wrapping paper!


It can be overwhelming to see the detrimental effects of climate change and pollution on the news, from animals dying and forest fires spreading, but there are smaller changes that we can all make to reduce our carbon footprint, and it begins with our gifting season.

On average, Americans throw 25% more trash between Thanksgiving and New Years, which translates to 25 million tons of garbage. That's 1 million extra tons per week.
