10 Signs You Are A Picky Eater

A daily battle between me and food.

10 Signs You Are A Picky Eater

Picture this: You are at a restaurant with all of your friends and the waitress comes back to the table to take everyone's order. Your friends are ordering all of these fancy foods that you have not heard of, such as braised pork loin or filet mignon. The waitress gets to you and you simply ask:

"Can I have a grilled cheese and a water?"

The table goes silent, forks drop and you hear nothing but the internal judgement from everyone around you.

Ten signs you are a picky eater:

1. You are petrified of new foods.

Themed restaurants scare you and foreign menus are what your nightmares are made of.

2. You judge food by the way it looks.

A picture is worth 1000 words. A plate of gross food is worth four: "I'm not eating that."

3. You need the "food-proval."

You are always asking your friends and waitress a copious amount of questions before placing your order to make sure everything will come out edible.

4. No substitutions is your personal hell.

You can not fathom losing control over what sides you eat.

5. You have a "go-to" meal.

Everywhere you go, you order the same meal, with the same drink and the same sides. Deviating from the plan is not something you do. There is no second option. Plan-B equals: "Plan to be hungry because you're not eating."

6. You start with small bites

Even when you order that "go-to" meal, you take baby bites to make sure that your order is exactly as asked for.

7. You resort to unholy amounts of dressing.

When you come face-to-face with a food that you have no other choice but to eat, you smother it with your favorite dressing to give the illusion that the food is not even there.

8. Certain textures make you cringe.

Bumpy. Crusty. Crispy. Creamy. Smooth. Moist.

9. You're scared of dinner parties.

Going over someone's house for dinner is a daunting task.

10. The battle of food preference.

The rare situation when you find someone who is MORE of a picky eater than you are, you obtain a sense of victory and feel like a champion.

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.
