Everyone deserves a vacation! Especially when there's good food involved.

From College Station to South Padre Island, the drive comes in just under 7 hours at 6 hours and 44 minutes. 405.7 miles to be precise.

2. Cap'n Roy is a legend

Everyone on the island knows Cap'n Roy! his food is amazing! his story stems from sweet humble beginnings of an experiment fisherman who's appreciation for food landed him the greatest restart on the island. He even has his own blues album!

3. Reel good food, reel good price, reel good to go!

The quality, kindness, speed, low price, and customer service of Cap'n Roy, his food, and his employees are unparalleled by any other dining establishment in the DFW, padre, and CSTAT areas. I consider myself to be fairly proficient in the restaurant going. I may not a yelp queen, but ALL I AM SAYING is that you don't get thick like this by not eating well.

4. Meetin' the Cap'n.

Cap'n Roy himself is often waiting outside in his sweet little hat to welcome hungry customers. There's nothing more jolly than a Cap'n Roy smile. The twinkle of his wise eyes reveals all the knowledge of an experienced sailor, restaurant owner, businessman, and quesadilla chef master.

5. YOU SHOULD SEE CAP'N ROY JR!!!

His son works there. A lot. Enough said. If I cannot become Mrs. Cap'n Roy, I can be Mrs. Cap'n Roy Jr.?!

6. They sell reasonably priced t-shirts!

Only 16 bucks for a high-quality Gildan shirt in the size and color of choice; but let us be honest, sporting Cap'n Roy's is priceless.

7. TMexican tacos

They're full of magic, onions, cheese, cilantro, and a decadent juicy meat of your choice.

8. The friendly cat outside! :)

There is a cute little kitty with a nipped ear that loves to be petted after a nice meal.

9. The purest of atmospheres.

Cap'n Roys will make you feel like your right of the Fishermans wharf with the fresh seafood! Or maybe even in bikini bottom!

10. The BEST quesadillas you'll EVER have. Seriously.

I left this point last, because it is the most important. the quesadillas are like nothing this world has ever seen. Over spring break, I talked about Cap'n Roy's so much it became an inside joke all week!

I cannot help it, they're so CHEESY. Year after year, I beg him for the recipe. This year I got mild success. He merely listed a few basic ingredients (off the record), but it meant the world to me. I cannot betray the Cap'n, so I will keep it to myself.

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.
