An Ode To Cup Noodles, Because Yes, They Deserve It

I have yet to meet a college student who doesn't have at least a few packs of Cup Noodles in their dorm.

An Ode To Cup Noodles, Because Yes, They Deserve It

Previously, I wrote an article titled "My Ode To Granola Bars," and this is once again is a tribute to something that I could not have survived college without.

I came into college foolishly believing that dining hall food would suffice, and it did for my first year of college, but come my second year, I just could not bring myself to eat overly salted fries or orange-flavored chicken. I'm not even kidding about the chicken, seriously. I don't eat Cup Noodles every day, but when I'm craving it, I'll have a cup or two. Not to mention, Cup Noodles are extremely easy to prepare. I'm no Master Chef, but I can sure boil some water.

To a college student, the best foods are the ones that are the quickest to make when you're looking to eat something quick and convenient. Cup Noodles come in handy especially when it's raining or when you're snowed in. They're also sold for a pretty reasonable price, and there's a variety to choose from. Nothing will ever beat Shin Ramyun though.

I honestly have not met a single college student who doesn't have at least a few packs of Cup Noodles in their dorm. My suitemate eats Cup Noodles at 8 AM in the morning for breakfast, and another one of my friends eats two at a time for dinner. Some people may see Cup Noodles as the lazy way out of having an actual meal, but it's necessary at times because school food won't always cut it. Of course, you shouldn't depend on Cup Noodles entirely, but you should always have a few on you for emergencies and for those desperate times during finals season.

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.

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.
