I Finally Tried Making An Acai Bowl At Home And It Was Honestly A Disaster — Here's What NOT To Do

Playa bowls who??

So I am in love with açaí bowls. They are amazing in my opinion. I am not into breakfast foods at all, BUT ACAI BOWLS ON THE OTHER HAND...

Acai bowls are obviously a little pricy to continue to purchase all of the time. And I always like to try and put my own spin on things when I can. So I decided to research how to make my own!

They sell frozen packs of acai at the grocery store.

It was fairly inexpensive and all I had to do was throw the package in the blender with half of a banana, and a splash of the milk of my choice and I was good to go!

Ok! It wasn't too bad, pretty straightforward — until I started blending.

I added WAY too much milk. When I started to blend, it was looking more like a smoothie than anything.

Plus, the instructions on the back of the package called to use 2 at once, but I didn't want to make too much so I started out with only one.

So, to cope with my acai smoothie, I tried to add some ice in my blender to try and thicken it up.

I keep my freezer on the coldest setting so my ice is naturally pretty solid which meant it took my blender a while to chop up the ice...which meant more time for any of the frozen acai to melt...

So, once the ice was successfully blended, it was pretty liquidy anyway.

I threw my bowl in the freezer for about 10 minutes to try and salvage it but it really didn't do much.

I topped it off with granola, strawberries, bananas, and a touch of Nutella (because I have such a sweet tooth!). This part was really good!

Though the acai part was a little disappointing, the actual bowl overall was tasty — the flavor was there. I will definitely try again!!

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.
