It's no secret that Chick-fil-A has changed the game in the food service industry for their unmatched customer service, but let us not forget the thing that gets their guests in the door: the food. Chick-fil-A's menu is made up of all chicken entrees, delectable sides, and sweet treats to follow their meals. To be honest, there isn't really a bad item on their menu. Well, maybe just one, *cough* the chicken salad sandwich *cough cough*. Next time you're headed there and you're not sure what to order, consider ordering one or some of these items that I believe you truly cannot go wrong with.

12.  Lemonade

that's good

Lemons, water, and sugar, that's it. Chick-fil-A knows this classic drink's recipe doesn't need to be messed with because its perfect just the way it is. Freshly squeezed lemon juice is the key to this sour yet sweet treat.

11.  Chocolate chunk cookie

go hug yourself

It's a chocolate chunk ooey-gooey cookie with oats, baked fresh daily and served warm. What more could one ask for? Ordering one is like giving yourself a hug. Pair it with a bottle of their milk and thank me later.

10.  Chick-n-strips

did everyone try the chicken?

You can't go wrong ordering these and dunking them into the sauce of your choice. The breading is a little sweet and paired with their Zesty Buffalo sauce, it creates the perfect combination of sweet and spicy. I'm pretty sure these are proof that God is real and wants us to be happy.

9. Grilled nuggets

i regret nothing

This guilt-free version of chicken nuggets is perfect for anyone looking for a healthier alternative to the classic dish. Essentially just cut up chicken breasts cooked on Chick-fil-A's specially designed grill, these nuggets are naked and delicious.

8. Sweet tea

Kermit Tea

This sweet tea surely has unhealthy amounts of sugar to make it super sweet the way we love it, but do we care? Nope! Their tea is brewed fresh daily and served over a heaping amount of ice to keep it ice cold and so yummy. Did I mention there are free refills?

7. Chicken biscuit

biscuits

The chicken biscuit is their breakfast portion chicken breast in between two flakey, doughy biscuits. Chick-fil-A makes their biscuits fresh every morning of course, and who said chicken isn't for breakfast?

6. Milkshakes

Milkshake

Chocolate, strawberry, vanilla, or cookies and cream—whatever flavor you choose, you'll be so glad you ordered a milkshake here. If you're lucky enough to catch one of their seasonal shakes, peach or peppermint chip, consider yourself blessed. The team members hand-spin these babies to order, topped with whipped cream and a cherry.

5. The Original Chicken Sandwich

Chicken Nuggets and Sandwich

You know how sequels for movies aren't always necessary because the original is just so good? Yeah, it's kind of like that. Don't bother going somewhere else for a chicken sandwich unless you're looking to be disappointed. Served on a buttered bun with two pickles, this simple sandwich is perfect in every way.

4. Chicken nuggets

Curtis Chicken Nuggets

Dunk-able, pop-able, enjoyable. What more can I say? Chick-fil-A delivers about the only fast-food chicken nugget that doesn't look like fried coated mush when you bite into it. Dip it in any of Chick-fil-A's dipping sauces and get ready for a flavor explosion to make your taste buds the happiest little taste buds in the world.

3. Chicken minis

If you've never tried Chick-fIl-A's breakfast, you need to, like as soon as possible. A lot of people don't even know Chick-fil-A serves breakfast, but order these chicken minis and you'll never forget it. A chicken nugget tucked into a honey buttered yeast roll, chicken minis are like having a little piece of heaven in your mouth.

2. Spicy chicken sandwich 

Spicy

The bottom line is that the spicy sandwich is a masterpiece. A spicy marinated chicken breast coated in spicy breading on a buttery bun? I'll take ten please. There is not a flaw in this sandwich. Not too spicy, but packed with flavor. They really outdid themselves with this one.

1. Waffle fries

waffle fries

Voted the best fast food item by The Ringer, these fries are no joke. These waffle fries are a must-order every time you find yourself in a Chick-fil-A. Whether you get a crispy one or a floppy one, they never disappoint. Fold it in half and dip it in Chick-fil-A Sauce, or squeeze on some honey roasted barbeque and dig in.

Now that we've eaten through the menu with our eyes, let's hope it's not Sunday so we can go feast on the best quick service restaurant America has to offer. There is not a bad item on this list, so take a chance on one of these items and you'll be glad you did.

To The Girl Who Doesn't Party In College

They are rare, I know.

I know what you all are thinking, she is just writing the article to brag on herself or to show the world the kind of person she is. No, I am writing this article to the girl out there who feels as if she is alone.

Not being a part of the party season is not the most popular thing to do on a college campus. Most people spend their days thinking about what they will do at night. Life pretty much revolves around the next party. But for people like me, it isn't spent thinking about alcohol or the next party I'm going to attend. And that can get pretty lonely.

It is not like I sit and wallow in my sadness or ever feel like my friends leave me out because I don't drink. I have great friends that support every decision I make. But, some are not that lucky. Some girls don't have the support system like me and I am here to tell you to never compromise the person you want to be just because you don't fit in. If you don't want to party, don't give in just because your friends are pressuring you into. Not to sound cliche, but find new friends because they are not your real ones. Choosing to stay true to you will pay off in the end, and you won't regret it. I promise.

I don't know why you choose to not attend the party scene, but I would be hindering my calling if I didn't tell you why I don't. I know this guy, and his name is Jesus. He is my best friend and the person I talk to about everything. It is because of Him that I decided to not party, to set an example for the people around me. But, I am also not 21. So I don't think, by any means, that me having a margarita when I turn 21 is hurting my reputation or my testimony. I firmly believe that alcohol isn't a sin when consumed in the right ways. I also don't ever see myself as a partier, 21 or not. Partying is a way of conforming and a way of becoming what this fallen world deems acceptable.

So to the girl who fails to be the typical college partier, I commend you. I look up to you. I respect you. I want you to know how rare you are. You choosing to not party and rise above the college standard is something you will never regret. I don't believe that my college years are boring because of the way I decide to live my life. I wish that I could befriend each and every girl relating to this article. So, when those Friday nights get boring, remember that you are not alone. You are rising above the standard.

Sincerely,

The girl who doesn't party in college

13 Reasons Sophomore Year Is Much Worse Than Junior Year Of High School

And now you can happily throw all your misconceptions about junior year down the drain.

57
views

Maybe you're an eighth grader getting ready to start high school in a few months, or maybe you're a junior almost done with the supposedly "toughest year of high school." Or maybe you're smack-dab in the middle of sophomore year, overwhelmed by everything around you. Sounds familiar? You'll be happy to know that for the most part, too, that 11th grade has nothing on the horrors of 10th grade. So what makes them so starkly different in difficulty?

1. People still do not take you seriously.

You're still in the bottom half of the high school, and you're still a lot shorter than that senior walking past you in the hallway. People in the year above you still see you as the little freshman from before, and you're trying so desperately to prove that as a 10th grader, you're a lot wiser now. Keep in mind, though, that after an entire year of stress, stress and more stress, you'll be wishing to revert back to the first day of high school.

2. Certain classes start taking over your life.

For me? AP World History, easily the most difficult class I have ever taken throughout high school.

I am not a history buff, nor do I think I ever will be. And that's one of the biggest reasons why I just could not understand the content in the class. On top of that, it was my first class of the day, I'd have hours of work for the class to finish each night and I just couldn't find any interest. So why, pray tell, did I take the class? Because everyone else was.

Because I succumbed to the peer pressure surrounding taking AP World History, I found myself struggling to stay afloat. Every test was just another issue after the previous one, and I'd even feel like crying and not knowing what to do to get through the class. I bet there will be a class like that, no matter how interested you are in its content, and you will have those horrible days where you don't know how to get out.

3. You realize that freshman year was almost too easy.

Way, way too easy. I was having fun in freshman year, and that shouldn't even be happening when I'm supposed to be growing up into a high schooler. And that's mainly because freshman year is a transition year where no one expects too much out of you. It's like a buffer year in which you're on autopilot while observing how upperclassmen have to manage their own stress.

Sophomore year is when everything you've observed in ninth grade has to come into play, and you're suddenly thrown into a hurricane that won't stop until that very last school day. Sounds like fun.

4. People keep telling you that "junior year only gets worse than this."

Is that true? Nope.

Junior year is a lot less stressful than people make it out to be, and maybe that's because you're so used to the idea of it being an impossible year to conquer. Honestly, all I realized is that the key to a successful year is just choosing the right course load and toning down the out-of-school duties so I could balance out the two parts of my life. Junior year is not anywhere as bad as sophomore year, and that's a guarantee.

5. You feel like you've already lost a year of high school to impress colleges.

Graduation's coming sooner than you think.

Because freshman year comes off as so easy, I remember thinking that I did not take advantage of how lax my year was. Come sophomore year, I felt like I had to join another club, take another class, do another project. The work kept piling on because I thought in ninth grade that high school was always going to be so easy. In fact, sophomore year makes it the complete opposite.

But don't base your success on what you believe colleges will think of your every action. Look at your career holistically, and notice the trends you tend to take that have gotten you to where you are.

6. Other people start taking you seriously. Too seriously.

Remember a few points back when I said no one takes you seriously? There are the few special people who scrutinize absolutely everything you do and do their best to make you unnecessarily stressed about things you shouldn't be worrying about so young.

"Thought of your specific dream college that you want to attend the minute high school is over?"

"Know every single class you'll be taking in your second semester of senior year?"

Questions like these pop up out of the blue and from the same few suspects, and they're meant to scare you. Don't be spooked by these people; they either want what's best for you or are wasting their own time trying to make other people upset.

7. You begin to underestimate yourself and your capabilities.

When teachers keep expecting more from you as the year goes on and extracurricular activities are making you feel more and more on edge rather than de-stressed, you feel as if this isn't how you should be feeling. You think you're supposed to be on top of everything given to you because that's why you chose that certain rigor for your sophomore year. This happened with me last year when AP World History was becoming too much work, and there was this one week when I couldn't even leave my room because I thought I'd be losing too much time for my assignments.

8. Peer pressure makes you start questioning your good decisions.

Peer pressure gets the best of us.

Peer pressure and good decisions aren't supposed to mix, but they happen to make the perfect mixture of stress and worry. Especially when everyone boasts about the classes they're taking or the activities they're a part of, you feel so utterly compelled to throw yourself into the same pathway, even if you have no interest in what others are doing.

This always happens with me and others when course recommendations for the next year come out. When you're told to choose a whole new set of classes, you can't help but take a pointer or two from others who seem to know what they're doing.

9. In some classes, you're forced to be with upperclassmen you don't know. 

This happened in a few of my classes, and it was so painful to be the one sophomore in a room full of juniors and seniors with a few sophomores sprinkled here and there. It's scary to be in a room where the people around you are taller than you and know a lot more about the world than you do. You feel like that one small fish in a big, big pond.

10. People start talking more about this thing called "class ranks."

You've definitely heard of it somehow and somewhere in your life. But people start taking the concept really, really seriously starting the end of sophomore year. You'll hear foreign whispers about it, almost as if it's a forbidden secret that you're not yet supposed to know about. And you'll eventually wish that you never heard about it when people starting comparing themselves based on such rankings.

11. Even before sophomore year begins, you don't know what classes to take.

An empty classroom.

When you take a cookie-cutter schedule from ninth grade and get asked to choose from a slew of new courses in 10th grade, you have to ask yourself what you want to get interested in. And on top of that, you might find so many classes you're genuinely intrigued by that you have to find the balance between fun classes and core classes. Sophomore year's independence can sometimes be burdensome.

12. You get put into way more group projects than before.

Of course, being a team player is an important aspect of being successful in the future, but in most group projects I've been a part of, no one works on the project at all until the night before the project is due. And when you're constantly thrown into groups of people you've never talked to and who won't work on the project until the night before, you get stressed way beyond what's considered normal.

13. Time starts flying really quickly, and that's not always a good thing.

Yeah, yeah, time flying quickly does mean the weekend will come sooner and that summer break is getting closer, but your long-term decision making begins in sophomore year. Surprisingly, a lot of your decisions about your future start playing themselves out in 10th grade itself, and you have to control time itself to make sure you don't forget anything as you rush through each day.
