Macaroni and cheese is a childhood staple. One of the best cuisine combinations to ever happen to mankind. If you’re like me, you ate a box of Kraft Macaroni and Cheese (likely the Spongebob shaped noodles) every day after morning kindergarten. To be addicted to macaroni and cheese is to be addicted to love. It’s the best food to eat when you’re down, and the best food to eat all day, every day. If you love macaroni and cheese and are as addicted as I am, here are nine things you know all too well.

1. “Fancier” and “more expensive” macaroni and cheese doesn’t always mean better

Ok, so it could mean better, but that’s not always true. If you’re putting pears and nuts on top of my macaroni, you’re ruining the essence of macaroni and cheese. Better macaroni and cheese means creamier and cheesier.

2. Being able to afford your favorite food while ballin’ on a college budget is glorious

Can’t say I can afford a nice steak on my college budget. But I can DEFINITELY say I can afford a nice $1 box of Annie’s White Cheddar Shells or Kraft Macaroni and Cheese. Who’s the real winner here?

3. It might be the best drunk food in the entire universe

Might be...more like it one hundred percent is the best drunk food in the entire universe.

4. You can tell your friends which restaurants in the area have the best macaroni and cheese because you’ve tried every single one of them

Some places are worth getting macaroni and cheese every time you go there, and others are a waste of money. Your friends know to ask you before they order macaroni and cheese from somewhere because they know you’ve likely had it more than once. (Pro tip: Full Moon has some of the best macaroni I’ve ever had.)

5. No matter the form, if there’s macaroni and cheese, it’s probably heavenly

Fried macaroni and cheese. Macaroni and cheese pizza. Macaroni and cheese on your burger. Macaroni and cheese stuffed jalapenos. The list goes on. And it goes on gooooooood.

6. You would cheat your diet any day for some macaroni and cheese

One bad meal didn’t do nothing to nobody. Macaroni and cheese will only improve any day’s cuisine.

7. There’s something about Kraft Macaroni and Cheese that brings back memories

It might be because you ate it every day as a child. It might be because the character-shaped noodles are one-of-a-kind. It might be because it’s still delicious, even though it’s super fake and artificial. It doesn’t matter, that stuff just gets you feelin’ sentimental.

8. When you make a box of macaroni and cheese, you have to make a second for the rest of the people you’re serving

One box is like an after-school snack. If anyone else wants some, they might be S.O.L.

9. Macaroni and cheese makes any day better

It’s the best food there ever was. And that’s that.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
