8 Things Your Vegetarian Friends Are Tired Of Hearing
Happy Cow

Being a vegetarian is a completely different experience for each person. Some have been one since they were a child, others are just now starting. Some are forcing themselves to live a vegetarian lifestyle due to health reasons, others naturally feel that it is best, and do not feel forced into this lifestyle. No matter the reason, every vegetarian has heard these phrases at some point in their lives.

1. "So you eat fish, right?"

Pescatarians eat fish, vegetarians do not.

2. "You can eat McDonald's chicken nuggets, they're not technically meat!"

Technically, yes, there is still some form of chicken in them. So no, they are not vegetarian.

3. "You totally have to have a cheat day, it's impossible to go years without meat."

Every vegetarian has an incident or two where they accidentally consume meat, but it is never on purpose, nor do they enjoy the fact that they consumed it. Unless a person is living a vegetarian diet and not a vegetarian lifestyle, cheat days do not exist.

4. "I could never be a vegetarian, I love steak too much!"

That's nice. I wasn't asking you to become one.

5. "Oh my gosh, I am so sorry!" *Tries to hide burger from sight*

Vegetarians are aware that meat exists. We do not care, we just don't want to have to eat it.

6. "What made you live your life like this?"

This question gets asked a lot, and although I understand the curiosity, it gets extremely old telling the same story over and over again. Not to mention that sometimes this question is asked in a rude manner.

7. "What restaurant can we eat at? I know you're a vegetarian."

Almost every restaurant has a vegetarian option. It is a lot more simpler than you think, there really is no need to go to a "special" place.

8. Why would you ruin your life?

Vegetarians are happy not consuming meat. We understand that it is not the "norm," but this is the way we choose to live our life, and we are happy with it. We are by no means ruining our lives.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

What life would be like if the people were led by Queen B.

Blair Waldorf For governor of new york

Cynthia Nixon, a.k.a Miranda from Sex and the City, is running for governor of New York. I think that this would be the best decision that has been made in a while solely based off of the fact that almost no one knows New York like the cast of Sex and the City. This got me thinking about who else would be a good candidate to take over the city of dreams. Then I realized that Blair Waldorf, if she were a real person, would be my number one choice for governor. Here are five reasons why Queen B would be an excellent ruler.

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."
