You'll Never Believe Which Food Destinations Have Vegan Options Now, And Even MORE Surprising, Which Ones Don't

Might be throwing shade at universities...


Universities and big restaurant chains serve huge masses of people and claim to cater to everybody. They market themselves as if students and customers, respectively, will be amazed by the variety of options.

So then why are fast food places ahead of the game now?

Burger King just introduced the Impossible Whopper.

Subway introduced Beyond Meatball Heroes.

Taco Bell has a separate menu dedicated to recommended vegan and vegetarian options, or you can make almost any meal vegetarian or vegan if desired.

Even KFC is testing out vegan fried chicken in some locations.

I was so pumped to hear about all of these new exciting options. As someone who doesn't eat meat, it's difficult to find options at fast food places. As excited as I am, this made it more and more disappointing whenever I revisited actual restaurants and came to my own university.

Places like Outback Steakhouse, Applebee's, and even Tropical Smoothie Cafe are lacking options safe for meat-free and/or dairy-free people. And even if there are options, it's a miracle if a little green leaf is next to each one. And if it's your university that's the problem, email the dietician(s) to get your voice heard. If your campus truly cares, they will hear you out.

Fast food places taking notice of us should overall give us hope!

Businesses are taking notice, and we can help them notice even more. How? Reward these places by spending your money there. When the Impossible Whopper commercial came out on TV, I went to Burger King within the same week of seeing it, and I plan to go back. The more people that purchase the items, the more the businesses will see the demand. Even if you aren't vegan or vegetarian, give it a try!

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.

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.
