20 Times Dietetics Majors Feel The "Ugh…" Emoji On A Very Personal Level

Dietetics is still definitely the best major and field to go into, but sometimes you're just like…

20 Times Dietetics Majors Feel The "Ugh…" Emoji On A Very Personal Level

1. When people get internships before they graduate.

Wow, how fun! *inwardly inserts emoji*

2. When people don't have to pay for the internships they get before they graduate.

What a concept…

3. When people actually get paid for the internships they get before they graduate.

Okay, seriously.

4. When rotations are just automatically part of another major's undergraduate program.

I can only imagine…

5. When people complain about their 1 out of XX tests, when you're struggling with the 1/1 internship application that basically determines whether or not you can actually use your degree for anything (in addition to your tests.)

It's fine. No pressure.

6. When people assume that other medical professions can do the job of a registered dietitian.

1 nutrition class, 15+ nutrition classes plus internship and more, same thing.

7. When you're all excited that you finished your case study but then you realize you only have 2 weeks until your next case study is due.

I'm done! Wait.

8. When said majors that have rotations automatically integrated into their undergraduate program don't have to think about the possibility of taking part in the arrangement of said rotations and preceptors.

No, no, it's really quite easy (said no one ever.)

9. When people believe unsubstantiated nutrition theories.


10. When people dismiss your input on unsubstantiated nutrition theories.

You're right, what do I know.

11. When people disregard evidence-based nutrition theories.

So you'll believe whatever this person without even a degree in nutrition said, but you won't believe these research publications…

12. When people don't care at all about nutrition.

*Googles motivational techniques*

13. When people construct a picket fence of unnecessary food rules around their life.

"Oh no baby what is you doing?"

14. When people mislabel a food as absolutely and definitively "bad."

I mean, I've never been personally victimized by it, but…

15. When people ditch an entire food group but will spare alcohol.

Because 7 kcal/g - 4 kcal/g = weight loss, right?

16. When underclassmen freak the heck out about their classes when they aren't a senior applying to internships with a 50% match rate while trying to keep up that GPA in the final classes they're taking.

I remember when I was your age.

17. When people talk about it "all being over" after graduation.

What light at the end of the tunnel…?

18. When people have jobs lined up for after graduation and you don't even know if you'll get an internship that you're willing to sign away your life's savings for.

Oh yeah, gonna go make that money (hopefully, in a year or more)…

19. When you think about the fact that you may have to find an apartment to move into by August and you don't even know what state that might be in until April.

I mean, apartments are pretty easy to find, right?

20. When you realize that in the real world you will no longer receive regular free food from your classes.

Man, this is the worst part.

What If The U.N. Actually United The Nations?

This is me taking a break from being cynical and imagining how the world could be one day.


By now, people are probably sick of hearing me talk about myself, so I’m changing it up this week. In keeping with the subject of my J-Term class, I’m asking myself a political what-if question. What if we could create a sovereign global government firmly grounded in justice that could actually adjudicate Earth’s many disparate nation-states into one unified world government?

    The Basics Of The United Nations

    As the General Assembly convenes, here is the United Nations 101


    For an organization that literally unites the nations, it amazes me how little is taught about the United Nations in schools, or at least where I went to school. It wasn't until I went to college and got a higher education that I learned the basics of the United Nations. I believe that every American should know at least the basics of what the United Nations does, especially since our country is one of the 5 permanent members. So here are the main "organs" of the United Nations.
