Food can really make a difference.

Best And Worst First Date Foods

Hello folks, here it is: My take on some foods you should and should NOT eat. I know you have all been dying to know.

Best Date Foods. The following foods have been selected for their taste, ease of access and the ability to consume without looking like a chipmunk.

1. Sandwiches. Preferably, Gourmet Sandwiches.

You gotta impress right? Sandwiches are not overly messy. It combines a variety of ingredients into a meal you can hold in one hand and either talk animatedly with the other, or side hug your significant other. Sandwiches have got it made: cheap, tasty, portable.

2. Ice cream, Frozen Yoghurt and Donuts

Three very accessible deserts that can lend to fun conversations about flavor, bite size and topping choices.Share-able, affordable and oh, so COOL and FUN. Have these go to's in your back pocket for when the desert menu looks $$$$.

3. Pasta. Don't wear a white shirt, and know you're golden eating pasta. It is an easily self-contained starch. It is filling, makes great leftovers and if you get some wine, parmesan and a candle . . . you've got a Lady and the Tramp date set!

4. Bowl Places. Basically, food in a bowl allows you to look across at someone, eat and not worry you're chasing food in circles on a plate. Bowl places usually are not to expensive, they are fun and lend to a lot of healthy variety!

WORST, First Date Foods. The following foods are rated on their mess level, the number of hands needed and the potentiality to embarrass you.

1. BBQ, this is a food that you should meet the family with, not have on your first date.

Mess Level: 9/10 Sauce everywhere

Number of Hands Needed: 2/2 Plus your tongue and teeth

Potentiality to Embarrass: 10/10 Sauce on your shirt, your face, your phone . . all hands on a rib bone . . . could be a real turn off.

Yeah, if only it looked like this.

2. Chinese Food. To clarify, I think Chinese food is A-MAZING. It is, however and unpleasant experience if you are not sure how to order. For some people, the tastes and amount of oil used an be a turn off. Wait till you know your date's ethnic food tastes before taking him or her to a Chinese restaurant.

Mess Level: 6.5/10

Number of Hands Needed: Two, one for the chopsticks, the other for tea and serving.

Potentially to Embarrass You: 7/10, Yes, those are chicken feet!

3. Burgers

Mess Level: 7.5/10

Hands Needed: Two

Potentiality to Embarrass You: 6.5/10

Burgers are great, however, a burger has to be eaten immediately: it cannot sit around so you basically have it in your hands the entire time. It is hard to talk to someone while you're continuously chewing.

Yeah, this lovely goodness is only fresh for 30min . . MAX.

4. Buffet Lines. This may seem a great option since there is something for everyone, but getting up to get more food can send the wrong message about what is really important. Plus, you have no idea of how much you both like to eat, so it would be super awkward if you were still eating and . . . . you get the picture.

Mess level: 4/10

Hands Needed: Both, for trays and extra plates of desert

Potentiality to Embarrass. 6/10

That's all folks! Bon Appetit!

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.

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.
