6 Reasons Costco Is Actually "The Holy Land"

Anybody with a Costco membership understands how magical this place is.

6 Reasons Costco Is Actually "The Holy Land"

If you're not on the Costco bandwagon, I highly suggest you jump on it now. No, I don't want to hear all the Sam's Club fans try to tell me otherwise. I am forever indebted to #TeamCostco, and those that are members will understand the beauty in this wonderful warehouse like I do.

1. Sample Sunday


IYKYK. Sample Sundays are the best days to come to Costco. You can walk around and try every single new item this place now has. Cake? Sure. Pie? Sure. Smoothie? Yes, please. Every single time you go on a Sunday you try to tell yourself that you're going to stick to a strict list of what you actually need. Just wait, a couple aisles later and your cart is suddenly filled with more stuff than you initially came for. Costco manages to pull you in, and it's a trap; but the best trap to be in. You know that hearing the words "Would you like a free sample?" is about as equivalent as "Will you marry me?".

2. Photo Center


A lot of Costco members may not actually utilize the photo center as much as they should. I think I order pictures to Costco every couple months. They have incredible quality and you can walk in and walk out in less than 5 minutes (unless you plan on shopping more). It is way better than CVS and nobody can fight me on this.

3. The Sherpa Blankets


Anybody who has been to my house knows how much my family loves Costco blankets. My dog even has one, okay!! They are so incredibly soft and extremely durable. I always check the blanket aisle every time I go in hopes for a new pattern or new design. Check my basement, I am not lying about this. The Zingraf family is obsessed, and you should be too.

4. Ability To Buy In Bulk


The only time this gets dangerous is the last aisle before you check out with all the candy and chips. Thanks Costco, we know what you're doing to us there. Most the time, the ability to buy large cases of waters and other products is such an advantage, especially if you know you tend to use it a lot.

5. Always Finding Something New


The beauty of Costco is the beauty of always finding something new. My family gets all giddy when we have found a new food item or product. It's like being a kid in a candy store. You can't wait to go home and try it out. Sometimes, you try a free sample and it's so much better there than it is at home...Costco, you've struck again. Oh, and by the way, this area in the picture is the bakery area. Stay clear unless you want to get swept into the delicious, carb-filled world.

6. The Food Court


Okay, just hear me out on this one. It is not trashy and it is not gross. In fact, it's actually really good and you're not a true, loyal member of Costco if you haven't bought something there. Only the real ones know how great it is. They've recently switched to a healthier menu, and although it's caused some controversy with other loyal fans and members, it is still offering some of the best stuff.

If you haven't had the chance to go to this place, ask a friend and let them bring you. Honestly, I would accept a date offer from this place because I love it so much. Also, if your friend takes you, they definitely know what's going on.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
