College Majors as Christmas Cookies

College Majors as Christmas Cookies

Have you ever considered a possible correlation between types of cookies and college majors?

It's that time of year again... CHRISTMAS COOKIE SEASON!! Who doesn't love cookies? I'm sure we all have a favorite, but have you ever wondered if you taste in cookies reflected your major in college? If college majors were Christmas cookies, what kind would they be?

Art/Theater: M&M

Just like M&M cookies, art and theater majors are fun and colorful!

Business: Molasses

Business majors are smooth like molasses. They dress well. They speak well. They are slick.

Communications: Chocolate Chip

Just as chocolate chip is the most common cookie, communications seems to be the most common major at the time being.

Computer Sciences: Peanut Butter

Computer science majors are the gamers, and we all know how gamers love their snack foods - the Cheetos, Doritos, and peanut butter anything.

Education: Sugar Cookie Cut Out

Education majors (like sugar cookie cut outs) are sweet and creative.

Health Sciences: Oatmeal Raisin

Oatmeal raisin is probably the most healthy choice out of all cookies just as health science majors are probably the most healthy out of all college kids.

Human Services: Gingerbread Men

Careers in human services all deal with people, hence cookies shaped like people best reflect this major!

Law: Snickerdoodle

Law students work very hard in school so they can eventually earn a salary that is cinnamon spice and everything nice!

Math/Engineering: Pizzelle

They are kind of like edible graph paper!

Psychology: Butter Cookie

Psychology majors are always analyzing your every move. So they find it fascinating to observe which butter cookie you choose. They all taste the same, but they are shaped differently.. does that mean picking the pretzel-looking one reveals something about your personality? Or does it just mean you like the ones sprinkled with sugar?

Undeclared: Cookie Dough

Because you don't know what you what to be yet - nor how to even preheat the oven.

10 Things People Who Addictively Drink Diet Coke Are Sick Of Hearing

In tribute to the most wonderful beverage in the world during my attempt to detox.

Hi I'm Katie, and I'm a Diet Coke-aholic. It's been 28 days, 22 hours, 2 minutes, and a handful of seconds since my last Diet Coke and I think I'm going to die. I'm not kidding — I've had dreams about the stuff, it's bad guys. I figured with the new year I would try and be healthier. I said I would give up Diet Coke for a year, a whole year. So when I found myself sitting in my room missing the feeling of drinking a nice cold Diet Coke I couldn't help but reminisce on all of the super annoying things people say about my "addiction."

1. It'll cause cancer

The original study that “firmly concluded" that Diet Coke “definitely causes cancer" was done by Italian researchers where they overfed almost 2,000 rats aspartame (the main sweetener in diet soda) at a rate and concentration that no human being would ever likely consume. So although a link was found between aspartame dosage and cancer in rats a similar study on humans confirmed no link between the two. Maybe they'll find something in the future, but right now I get to drink my can guilt free. Science.

2. You know, Diet Coke won't make you skinny

I haven't been to the gym since October. Trust me, honey, I'm not drinking the stuff for the health benefits. I'm drinking it for the delicious taste.

3. Have you ever thought about cutting back a little?


4. Have you ever thought about swapping it out for seltzer water or something else?

No. Seriously? Are you kidding me? Please stop suggesting stupid things.

5. Put the bottle down!

Some people think that it's a problem. I think that it's a solution.

6. Diet Coke is actually worse for you than regular Coke.

Ok cool. Thanks, doc.

7. Do you know how much money you're probably spending?

No, and I don't want to find out. I have been successfully avoiding the answer to this since 2010.

8. All that soda will impact your mood.

You're damn right it will. If I'm stressed, or sad, or angry — you name it, a Diet Coke is guaranteed to make me smile. So thank you for pointing this out because yes, Diet Coke does affect my mood.

9. The sugar will rot your teeth

a) It's the carbonation, not the sugar that rots your teeth b) I brush my teeth and practice other oral hygiene regardless so I think I'm OK.

10. You have a problem.

Yeah, it's you. I am fully aware that I drink more Diet Coke than some people but I'm OK with that.

Despite all of the nonsense people insist on talking to me about I will always have a special place in my heart for Diet Coke. See you in 2017, my love.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs

It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air

Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors

Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB

Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead

Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes

And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer

Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
