Soup Is The Worst, Sorry, It's Just A Fact

Soup Is The Worst, Sorry, It's Just A Fact

My argument on why soup is horrible.


Yes, this is a petty article about why I hate soup. I am a firm believer that soup is not a meal and just overall the worst. In sixth grade, my hatred started. I was in line in the cafeteria. It was grilled cheese and tomato soup day. Naturally, I have been looking forward to this day all week in anticipation. I walk through the very long line and proudly request a grilled cheese and tomato soup. The lunch lady looks at me and says "Oh honey we're out". Now, of course, my world was crashing in around me. This is literally the worst moment of my life. Are you kidding me? How could you just run out? She could see the distraught on my face and said, "We still have soup though". I nodded and took the soup. Now, as a blanket statement never eat cafeteria soup. It's just the worst. From that day on, I've come to realize that soup is just the worst.

I know you're probably thinking, "Oh this poor sweet child had soup ruined for her all because she had a bad experience". To that, I say yes and no. That moment started the hatred but there is fuel to add to the fire. You see, if you really look at it, what even is soup? If you said a glorified beverage poured into a fancy bowl that we spoon into our mouths with small shovels, you'd be spot on. I mean, you honestly can't tell me that the way we eat soup is so weird. We don't eat other foods like that. The closest thing that matches the consistency of most soups is a smoothie. We drink those with straws. BAM, gotcha! The next unsettling fact about soup is it's literally chunks of other food floating in liquid. Oh boy, that sounds amazing. Absolutely not. Also, SLURPING.

How foul is it that it's almost impossible to "eat" soup without making obnoxious noises with your mouth? No thanks.

Now, I understand there are folks that need to eat soup. Older people with bad bladders and actual fetus' have an excuse because you know they can't just, you know, eat a burger. But guess who can? There you go. Now you're getting it. An average person doesn't require pre-masticated food that gets passed off as real nutrition. When you really break it down, that's all soup is. They are mostly water-based and to that, I say okay drink water. I understand that there are some that have a chicken broth or some other broth as a base. That's gross. Why do you want chicken water? I'm sorry, I just don't see the appeal. Go eat some chicken.

I could probably go on forever about how I hate soup but I'll stop here for your sake. I hope I have enlightened you about soup and how it is just purely inhuman. Don't just take my word for it. Google "I hate soup" and you'll find many results saying the exact same thing. Join team #SoupSucks!

4 Breakfast Spots Near The University of Kentucky That Will Actually Get You Out Of Bed In The Morning

These places will satisfy all of your breakfast cravings.


If you're a breakfast foodie like I am, you know that is an absolute priority to find the most popular breakfast spots despite the city you may be in. You don't want to visit the touristy and basic restaurants that everyone else goes to, but instead, you are determined to uncover the locations that are the best of the best. Most foodies will go to great lengths to discover these places. As a University of Kentucky student and major foodie, I have searched all over Lexington to find my favorite places to visit on Saturday and Sunday mornings. This took my entire first semester and many trips to the ATM, but today, I am now blessed to say that I am a regular at all 4 of these incredible breakfast spots.

1. The Great Bagel

The Great Bagel is one of my all-time favorite restaurants to visit on Sunday mornings. The restaurant offers a variety of bagel sandwiches and freshly squeezed orange juice, and it makes for the perfect early morning start to a day filled with homework or relaxation.

2. Chocolate Holler

Though not a true restaurant, Chocolate Holler is one of the most popular coffee shops near the University of Kentucky. Because it is only a 3-minute drive from campus, Chocolate Holler is always buzzing with UK students who come to socialize or study. The coffee shop is most well known for its chocolaty drinks and the music is great there, too!

3. Stir Krazy

Stir Krazy is a local smoothie bar down the street that serves protein shakes, smoothies, and tea. Though It only consists of these three beverages, the shakes at Stir Krazy are enough to fill you up for breakfast or lunch. Each shake or smoothies range from 200 to 250 calories and serves as the perfect energizer before a workout or a filling recovery drink after a workout.

4. La Madeleine

La Madeleine is a French breakfast and lunch cafe conveniently located on campus (and only a 30-second walk from my dorm). Their breakfast is served all day long and their croissants are to die for. I highly recommend building your own omelet for the most fulfilling experience. Not to mention, their iced caramel macchiatos are a great refresher on the side.

No matter which city, state, or country I am currently in, I make it my mission to eat as a local would. In Lexington, Kentucky, these four breakfast spots are guaranteed provide you with a plethora of different types of food to get you through even the worst cases of morning hunger. Though these places are my current favorites, I am now looking forward to containing the search for more breakfast restaurants, cafes, and juice bars throughout my next four years in this city.
