Good First Chipotle Experience

Chipotle Lived Up To The Hype

I was concerned that it wouldn't live up to my expectations, so I was pleasantly satisfied when it did.

I was recently witness to a discussion between friends over whether Moe's or Chipotle was better. The key word to that is witness because at the time I has not tried Chipotle.

I've been hesitant to try Chipotle Mexican Grill for awhile now. Part of it was that I didn't have one close by, but a large part of it is that I didn't want to be let down.

Prior to my first Chipotle experience, I had an ideal version of Chipotle in my mind. Stereotypically Chipotle is seen as a white girl trend along with things like Starbucks and Instagram aesthetic.

(On another note, I tried Starbucks late as well and it's not really my cup of coffee.)

After the discussion with friends and my recent opportunity to go, I decided to try Chipotle out.

I first thought that the decor was a little quirky, but it did have a warm, friendly environment. Even the employees were laid back even as they executed an endless stream of orders flawlessly. (Needless to say, they earned a tip in my eyes.)

The boards overhead showed prices for the meat base (or vegetables if that's your thing). I saw that chicken was only $6.35 and expected there to be a basic starting burrito or bowl price on top of that, but it turns out the base price is exactly what you got before tax.

I just got a basic burrito with chicken, white rice, salsa, sour cream, and lettuce. It was a great portion size for one in my opinion.

I'm certainly no food critic or even cook, but it would be clear to even the most bland palettes that everything was seasoned, from the grilled chicken to even the white rice. Cilantro isn't everyone's favorite, but it's my herb of choice for sure. I was not disappointed.

I found Chipotle to be friendly and cost effective yet satisfying. I definitely plan to return soon.

The Boyfriends Of The 2000s

Thank you, J14, for the Posters

J14 magazine

Every girl remembers her first crush. Even if your first crush was the boy in your kindergarten class that ate crayons, your first true love will always be the one that holds the key to your heart. Growing up in the 2000s, everyone knew who your dream guy was. Your family probably still give you grief and your best friends probably still reminisce, so it is impossible to forget your first celebrity crush. You bought a Tiger Beat magazine every chance you could just to read up about what your favorite celebrity was doing. Your room was fully decorated with posters of them, and it wasn't unusual to have fights with your best friends over who was going to marry him. If you were a 90's baby, lucky you because the 2000s were full of boys that were easy to love. I hope you enjoy a walk down memory lane and quickly realize that Bieber was definitely not the first guy with that hair cut. Here are 15 90's baby's first boyfriends.

20 Things I Learned By The Start of My 20s

No one expects you to have your life together by the time you're 20, because honestly, they didn't either.

Allyson Foutty

We are all often faced with many life challenges throughout the time leading up to our 20s.

Some of my biggest influences were some of the challenges I've faced, but they've taught me 20 important things by the start of my 20s.

The Boyfriend Recipe

The ingredients to build a relationship are a little more complicated than just a bouquet of flowers and a box of candy.


Relationships. Long distance or not, significant others are much more than just that. I would be lying if I said I did not love the sweet gestures that only a boyfriend can give. The flowers, funny phone calls, hand holding, breakfast dates, and tight hugs are special but my relationship and many others out there exist on much more than just these little gestures. It is a tricky concoction that consists of one part boyfriend and two parts best friend and would not work without one part or the other. While having a relationship may not be quite as easy as baking a batch of cookies, it has its own recipe (with a few variations for flavor) to follow for a good match.
