When I finally decided to go vegan, it was a lot easier than I thought it would be. I was vegetarian for the majority of my life and simply got bored with my eating habits, so I made the plunge. Although as a vegetarian I would constantly be criticized for my eating habits; when I became vegan I realized I had opened the doors for all sorts of remarks related to my dietary habits.

While some people genuinely want to know more about veganism, others question every aspect of veganism, which can get extremely annoying very fast. If I had a dollar for every time I heard one of these comments, I'd be richer than Bill Gates.

1. So wait, what do you eat?

All the guilt-free and delicious food that the world has to offer.

2. Where do you get your protein?

Okay, so maybe not this extreme, but you get the gist.

3. (Anything bacon related).

RIP to this cute guy.

4. I could NEVER be vegan!

You know the saying, "never say never?"

5. "I tried to go vegetarian once but..."

I tried eating meat once, it tasted like death.

6. I'm gonna get you to eat meat.

No, just stop.

7. That can't be healthy.

But the synthetic hormones and steroids in your meat are?

8. People are supposed to eat meat!

With this logic, if a carnivorous animal were to eat a human it should be considered okay because the animal is supposed to eat meat.

9. Plants have feeling too!

If you had to save a dog or a head of lettuce from falling off of a cliff, what would you save? (P.S. Plants are not sentient beings!)

10. If someone gave you one million dollars, would you eat meat?

Except me eating meat isn't a bargain.

11. How can you afford all that fancy food?

I'm a college study relying on financial aid. If I can afford food, so can you.

The 8 Best Christmas Movies To Watch With Your Real Life Dysfunctional Family

Not everyone can live in a Hallmark movie.

The holiday season is the busiest time of year for most families. Yet, we all still have time to gather around the perfectly decorated Christmas tree and sing carols, after we just finished decorating cookies as a family; that is if you live in a Hallmark movie.

During my holiday season, there's lots of traveling, a little bit of arguing and everyone is stressed out for one reason or another.

My favorite Christmas movies aren't the cheesy/romantic/boring ones of the Hallmark channel. The best movies are about the big, dysfunctional families that are just like mine.

1. National Lampoon's Christmas Vacation

Things can get pretty hectic when the extended family comes over! I'm proud to say that the police have never been called for ours.

2. Elf

Why wouldn't a Christmas movie have a scene where an adult man who thinks he is an elf drinks and dances in the mailroom of the Empire State Building?!

3. A Christmas Story

From Ralphie's family, to his father's leg lamp, there is a lot of dysfunction in this movie.

4. Home Alone

Burglars in a Christmas movie?!

5. Christmas with the Kranks

You wouldn't get to see Tim Allen drag Frosty on the roof with a noose in a Hallmark movie.

6. Jingle All the Way

The struggles of Christmas shopping.

7. How the Grinch Stole Christmas

The Grinch is so relatable in his dysfunction.

8. Daddy's Home 2

So. Much. Dysfunction.
