6 Sayings To Use If You Want To Get Slapped By A Vegan

I have been a Vegetarian for about four years now. I have been leaning towards a Vegan lifestyle for the past year. And some people need to SHUT UP. I've been quiet for a long time and just nodding or smiling when people tell me this; this is my chance to rant a little. We don't want to hear your opinions on what we put in our bodies. A majority of Vegans and Vegetarians don't care what you put in our bodies and remain quiet about what you eat. This lifestyle holds a lot of discipline and many people do it for reasons that give the opportunity for impact in our communities and environments. We are attempting to make a change, how are you?

1. "You aren't getting enough nutrients."

Are you kidding me?! I have enough intelligence to know how much protein I am getting in a day, what foods will give me energy, and what foods can replace meats. Do you really think you are getting nutrients from your McDonald's and Cookout trays?

2. "Is that even good?"


What? I am not going to eat food something tastes bad. Why would I eat food that is not good to eat? Yes, the food I am eating is good. Don't be rude. Yeah, maybe sometimes it isn't the best, but that goes with any type of food.

3. "Doesn't this *insert meat product here* smell good?"


I still have a nose. Yes, it does smell good. I have also have consumed meat products in the past so I know what they smell and taste like. I am simply choosing to not eat it. I am not repulsed by it.

4. "I just couldn't do it."


Well okay then. I didn't ask you. I know the Vegetarian and Vegan lifestyle is not for everyone. I respect that you chose to not do it. I don't judge you. I honestly have no opinion what you eat; therefore, you should have no opinion about what I eat.

5. "So do you support PETA?"


I actually disagree with the marketing tactics that PETA implements to encourage people to go Vegan. Not everyone who is Vegetarian or Vegan support PETA or what they stand for.

6. "You are killing plants too."


Oh! Okay! I am just going to walk away from you if you say this to me.

I don't like hearing what people have to say to me about what I chose and chose not to eat. I don't slander what people eat so please do not put your input in. Thanks, I'll be eating my veggies and fruits and grains and other non-meat products over in this corner.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
