I don't care how good their burgers may be, they'll always be IHOP to me

Just because IHOP is having an identity crisis doesn't mean that I have to play along.

So, for those of you currently residing underwater or in an area with no cell service, welcome back. Thank you for choosing to come read this article first, like wow.

Because you've missed out and don't know what is happening, so let me catch you up to speed with the universe.

Recent updates on life include some politic-y things, global events I'm sure, and most revolutionary of all, IHOP changing its name. The well-known and beloved International House of Pancakes, more commonly referred to as IHOP, has switched its name now. That's right. IHOP is out. And "IHOB" is in.

Guesses flew from Twitter accounts such as my own to identify the last word beginning with a B, and eventually, we settled on Int'l house of... Breakfast? Maybe?

A day later, the order was decreed and the name switched to the International House of Burgers.

IHOB. B for burgers. Yes, you may have a minute to mourn before you continue reading.

You're back? Thank God, I was getting bored.


All the intelligence on Twitter combined, and we guessed wrong.

Now, were you aware that IHOP sold burgers? I WAS NOT. And even if you did know this, have you ever actually eaten a burger there???? And now they're throwing this fun fact in the title as if it holds any relevancy or truth!

If I changed my name from Julie, the world would be shocked (well, my family and possibly a couple friends). But if I suddenly changed my name from Julie to BANANA the world would be SHOOK.

So here we stand, humble pancake lovers, united in a mutual hatred against this new evil of the world. Forget the Singapore Summit, forget the whale that washed up in Thailand dead from ingesting too many plastic bags, forget world hunger and the mother fucking Great Barrier Reef for a minute and a half.

Let us focus on the real issue of the now. IHOB.

Do they even realize that the name is uncomfortable to say?

IHOP, this is not OK. Not one bit.

I refuse to order a burger, or even another pancake, until this wrong has been made right.

Moral of the story: Just because you're having an identity crisis, doesn't mean that I have to go along with it.

Please send me your prayers for the coming weeks of driving by IHOP and seeing the new sign being built outside. I will need them.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

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.
