If 20 Basic College Majors Were Candy Or Sweets

If 20 Basic College Majors Were Candy Or Sweets

Nothing will make you hungrier while pursuing your major.

Sweets, man. Something we all know and love. Some trend that goes around is: "The college majors as _____" so why not hop on board? These are the college majors as a sweet treat, and why.

1. Philosophy - Skittles

Can you taste the rainbow? What does it taste like? I disagree, let's argue about it.

2. History - Ashura (Noah's Pudding)

A Turkish delicatessen, also known as the oldest dessert known to mankind.

3. Education - Apple Pie

No middle school teacher's desk is complete without a bright shiny apple. Naturally, no apple pie is complete without the apples.

4. Psychology - 7 Layer Cake

Because when we all grow up, in the end, we want to divulge into the layers of people's minds and try to help them.

5. Art - Acai Bowl

Beautifully thought up of, beautifully presented...it's truly a work of art.

6. Musical Theatre/ Dance - Fro-Yo

These artistic people express themselves physically through dance and performance art. With all the twists and twirls in a chocolate/ vanilla frozen yogurt mix, this only makes complete, logical sense.

7. Bio/ Chem/ Physics - Popping Boba

It just looks like a science experiment gone right. Put that stuff as a topping on some fro-yo, and enjoy the burst of flavor that your mouth is experiencing.

8. Marketing - Oreos

America's most advertised cookie. Something tells me there were some genius marketing majors behind that.

9. Linguistics - Pecan Pie

PeCAN or PeCON. However, you may pronounce it still tastes the same. And it tastes delicious.

10. Political Science - Twix

A constant argument between right and left and which one is better.

11. Sociology - Pancakes

Sociology is the study of the development, structure, and functioning of human society. Humans like pancakes and pancakes require structure and balance, just like the life of a person.

12. Pre-Med - Muffins

Let's be real. The muffin is a stepping stone to become a cupcake. Being a pre-med student is the stepping stone to becoming a doctor.

13. Criminal Justice - Sour Patch

First, they're sour, then they're sweet. Well, what are they?!? If it were a crime to be this cute of a gummy, the criminal justice majors would be behind this.

14. Filmmaking - "Cake"

I hate to burst your bubbles, but they don't actually use real food in movies/commercials/TV shows. The long time it takes to shoot a scene would have the food deteriorate and lose its greatness. Here's a video to spark your interest. Fun fact, the cake below is made of styrofoam, caulking, drywall, and items from a local hardware store.

15. Mathematics - Macaroons

Because even the best pastry chefs mess this up because it's complicated. And math is fucking complicated.

16. English - Tea Biscuit

Tea... Boston Tea Party... Britain... England... English... I'm not sure where I'm going with this but it makes sense in my mind

17. Accounting - Rice Pudding

I actually love rice pudding, but without flavor, it can be bland and boring. No hate, but I have never met an accountant who likes being an accountant. There's no pizzaz to it.

18. Nursing - Lollipop

Going to the nurse sucks (unless you were like me and used it as an excuse to go home early during the day... don't do that, kid). And you know what we also suck on? Lollipops.

19. Journalism - Fortune Cookie

Journalists thrive on writing for newspapers and columns, maybe there is one behind the wonderful fortunes we break into.

20. Undeclared - Fudge

Everybody likes fudge, and everybody starts off never knowing what they want to do. Chocolate is the basis of all great desserts (that have chocolate in them).

12 Starbucks Iced Drinks You NEED In Your Life This Summer

Must-try beverages brought to you by your local barista.

Be kind to your baristas, they can make you some pretty great drinks. With the temperature rising and the days getting longer, it's approaching the time to find your summer staple to keep you cool (and caffeinated) over the next few months.

Starbucks offers a wide variety of cold beverages that really hit the spot during the summer months, from espresso drinks to fraps, smoothies, teas and refreshers. As a Starbucks barista, I've had the opportunity to taste most drinks on the menu and receive feedback from customers on the do's and don'ts of cold beverages.

While this is not an exhaustive list, I pulled together some of my favorites to give you, the "Ultimate Starbucks Iced Beverage Bucket List for 2017" that you MUST try this season:

1. Pink Drink

Three words: Basic white girl. If you want a photogenic drink that tastes like a Starburst and makes baristas happy, the Pink Drink is for you. It's a pretty simple beverage... this Strawberry Acai Refresher combined with Coconutmilk is sure to satisfy your hipster needs.

2. Iced White Mocha

This sinfully sweet iced espresso drink is not only one of the most popular beverages on the menu, but sure to wake you up at any time of day. Jazz it up by asking for half white chocolate, half mocha sauce, topped with a mocha drizzle, and you've got yourself an Iced Tuxedo Mocha!

3. Doubleshot on Ice

If nothing else, this quick pick-me-up looks classy while giving you the energy boost you need to get through the day. With two shots of espresso, a bit of milk and classic syrup, this drink is easy to enjoy in little time... it's like a caffeine I.V.!

4. Iced Caramel Machiatto

Surprise, surprise... Caramel Machiattos are actually made with vanilla syrup. Nonetheless, these espresso-topped beverages are absolutely delicious at any time of year, but summer calls for ice! Want to change things up? Ask your barista to make it with half vanilla syrup, half toffee nut syrup to make an Iced Salted Caramel Machiatto!

5. Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher

A sister to the Pink Drink, the Very Berry Hibiscus Refresher is a fruit juice-blackberry combo that makes for a pretty chilled beverage to enjoy on the go. The caffeine content is minimal, making it a great option for any time of day.

6. Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew

Cold Brew is basically Starbucks' version of a smoother-tasting iced coffee with more caffeine. The Vanilla Sweet Cream Cold Brew is a standard drink topped with vanilla-flavored heavy cream to create a sweet taste and a marbled appearance in the beverage. Want something with flavor, but not in the mood for vanilla? Try the Toasted Coconut Cold Brew!

7. Mango Black Tea Lemonade

The Mango Black Tea Lemonade is one of the most popular drinks on the menu. Iced Teavana tea mixed with mango syrup and lemonade makes for the perfect combination

8. Iced Chai Tea Latte

Iced Chais - sound so sophisticated, yet so simple to make. If you order this drink, there is a 10/10 chance that your barista will love you for it. Milk mixed with a sweet and spicy chai syrup makes for a classy drink that can be enjoyed at any time of day.

9. Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto

The identifying characteristic that makes a macchiato, well, a macchiato is that the espresso shots are poured on top of the milk and flavoring. Starbucks' Iced Cinnamon Almondmilk Machiatto is a combination of cinnamon dolce syrup and almondmilk topped with espresso shots, a caramel drizzle and a cinnamon dolce topping to create a delicious dairy-free option in the macchiato family.

10. Sunset Refresher

This secret menu drink is fairly simple to make with a cool lime base, lemonade, lime slices, and ice topped with black tea. When finished, the drink will have an ombré appearance that makes it totally picture-worthy!

11. Iced Caffè Americano

Calling all espresso lovers: Americanos are a Starbucks signature. The drink itself is pretty simple - espresso and water topped with ice, but if you're feeling particularly adventurous, you can mix things up with a flavored syrup. This drink is sure to wake you right up, no matter the time of day.

12. Strawberry Lemonade

Want something cold but not feeling coffee or a frap? Frozen Strawberry Lemonade is definitely worth a try! While this drink is not on the menu, most baristas are happy to make it upon request. Just ask for a combination of strawberry flavoring, lemonade, and ice blended together for a slushie-like beverage!

A Love Letter To My Air Fryer

And why you would love an fryer too...


In a previous article, I wrote about how love to use Trello.com for organizing things. I'm still loving Trello. I've haven't grown bored of it and stopped using it (like I have with some other organizational systems). This time, I'm going to share another item that I love, and it's for one of my favorite things, food! I finally gave in and bought an air fryer, and after my first use, I literally said that it's wonderful! I bought a small air fryer. It only holds about two quarts, but it's perfect for quick lunches.

I thought I'd love the air fryer if it could dry fry food with little to no oil, and it does just that. I'm also in love with the air fryer, because I could simply put the food in it, set the timer and live my life for a few minutes until the food is done. I don't have to stand over it and watch the food cook. That makes the air fryer a winner! Did I mention that it really does work?! Yes, it does work. Now, you could buy foods that are already breaded and throw them in the air fryer, but if you want to go the healthier route, you can use bread crumbs, flour, and eggs to make your own crispy coatings for your foods. Dipping your food in your own homemade batter cuts out some of the salt and added chemicals in the frozen pre-fried foods.

You can also fry foods that do not even need a homemade batter. Without using the batter, I've made sweet potato French fries and burritos in it. The tortilla for the burrito turned out nicely crispy, but I didn't leave it in the air fryer long enough for it to be crunchy. The sweet potato fries came out nice. I've tried making crispy chickpeas with Italian seasoning, but they weren't to my liking. However, I have loved everything else that I've made in the air fryer. Sometimes I just put a quick meal in it, just to re-heat it, since I don't use a microwave. I just think that using the air fryer is healthier than using microwaves, and I love that I don't need to put my food in a special box or anything for it to be really crispy. If you love fried chicken or fried fish, you'd love this little machine as much as I do!
