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?

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

From reading the books in eighth grade to watching the television show all throughout high school, "Pretty Little Liars"basically defined my teenage existence. I was completely and totally obsessed on all accounts. However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
