5 Foods That Will Take You Back to Your Childhood

Remember when we could eat anything we wanted to and not feel gross about it?

Everyone has those foods that they ate growing up. Those foods that you came home to after a long day of school, or that you ate when you were sad or upset to cheer you up. We all may have had different foods or versions of foods, but nonetheless, here is a list of some that bring back great memories.

1. Mother's Frosted Animal Crackers

Target

If you've never had these... I'm sorry but you didn't have a childhood. These aren't like any regular animal crackers - they're covered in pink or white frosting and topped with sprinkles. My friends and I still get giddy over buying these because of all the memories we had eating them as kids.

2. Lunchables

Ah, the classic Lunchables. I'm sure 1 in 5 kids would bring Lunchables to school. While they may not be the healthiest option, they were so much fun to "make your own food" and it was convenient for our parents. Honestly, I might go buy myself one right now – no shame.

3. Ants on a Log

I'm surprised as a kid that I wasn't grossed out eating these. Not only because it was fake ants on a log, but also because it was a combination of celery, peanut butter, and raisins... Regardless, they were tasty and always made for a great afternoon snack!

4. Girl Scout Cookies

I live for Girl Scout Cookies. Every year, my friends and I gear up for the new season and get excited to buy our box of cookies. However, most of this excitement stems from childhood memories – whether we sold them as kids, or bought them from our friends. A large part of my eagerness to buy them is because it has been a tradition since I was a child... plus it helps that they're so delicious!

5. Otterpops / Freeze pops

Otterpops are so iconic. I remember buying a huge box of them from Cosco every summer and my sister and I fighting over who got what color. They bring back so many good memories from summer breaks and I still love them today.

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.

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.
