Let's talk about all the reasons everybody loves Chick-Fil-A.

11 Reasons Chick-Fil-A Is True Soul Food
Claire Birchmier

Everyone has their favorite restaurant. Whatever the restaurant, often times it is chosen as a favorite not only because of the quality and deliciousness of the food, but also because of the atmosphere/customer service. For me, I find solace in going to Chick-fil-A. There have been a few negative perceptions of Chick-fil-A that have circulated in recent years, however these misconceptions are notably outweighed by all of the reasons I love and admire the brilliant restaurant chain.

  1. First and foremost, the company’s Christian values are demonstrated in their customer service and atmosphere. Who doesn’t like being addressed as “ma’am” or “sir”?
  2. Their Chick-fil-A sauce is liquid gold. Don’t even get me started on the killer combo between waffle fries and this heavenly sauce.
  3. The awkward silences when you are stuffing your face with really spectacular chicken is made less awkward by the instrumental Christian music playing softly in the background.
  4. You don’t even have to get out of your seat to get a refill. Instead, “May I refresh your beverage, ma’am?”
  5. QUALITY FREAKING CHICKEN, PEOPLE. (Don’t knock it ‘til you try it!)
  6. Lots of cute guys are always chowing down on Chick-fil-A.
  7. Their response to “thank you” is ALWAYS a genuine “my pleasure” with a smile and a sparkle in their eyes (I have yet to experience a Chick-fil-A worker respond in any other manner).
  8. Their sweet tea transports you to a southern porch swing with no worries in the world.
  9. Their butter mints are addicting.
  10. Chick-fil-a demonstrates the love of Christ to everyone, regardless of their beliefs or lifestyle. One example is their offering of free food to those who waited in long lines to donate blood for the Pulse Night Club shooting.
  11. If you seriously need another reason, you’re in denial that Chick-fil-A is the greatest restaurant chain of all time.

These are just a few of the reasons Chick-fil-A is the way to my heart and a soul quencher when I need to be uplifted. So, if you are hesitant to eat at Chick-fil-A because of some the misconceptions regarding this business, I encourage you to push them aside and decide for yourself if Chick-fil-A is really as great as I have cracked it up to be (HINT: it is).

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.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
