Definitive Ranking Of Fast Food French Fries

There are very few things more important in this world than good french fries. Equally as important is the knowledge of where to go when the cravings hit. So, in order from worst to best, here's a definitive ranking of ten different fast food french fries. If you're not one of those people who pretends to be too good for fast food, I encourage you to go on a tasting tour of sorts and try them all -- and let me know if you agree!

10. Shake Shack.

Crinkle-cut fries lie on a spectrum. On one end is the perfect fry. Crispy, hot, and great inside/outside ratio. On the other end is a crinkle-cut deep fried stick of mashed potato. Sadly, these fries lean too far to the mashed potato end of the spectrum to earn a higher ranking. But they do photograph well. #doitforthegram

9. KFC Potato Wedges.

Please see mashed potato argument, above.

8. Wendy's.

They're kind of limp and greasy, and not in a good way. The only way they got this high up on the list was because they can be redeemed a little bit if you dunk them in a Frosty.

7. Burger King (Classic, not the crinkle cut BS).

Better than Wendy's, but not by much.

6. Five Guys.

Served in a seemingly bottomless cup that overflows into a salt-littered, grease-stained brown bag. Yum, yum, yum.

5. Jack in the Box.

Perfectly curly and seasoned to perfection. Also, heavily campaigned for by my Texan roommate.

4. Chick-fil-A.

The indescribable sensation of dunking one of these waffle-cut beauties into Polynesian sauce is exactly what earned them the number four spot.

3. Arby's.

Thank you, Arby's, for like, the most perfect curly fries ever.

2. Popeye's.

Two words: cajun seasoning.

1. McDonald's.

Sorry, but nothing beats the classics -- a.k.a. hot, fresh McDonald's fries. Whether you dunk them in ketchup, sweet and sour, a McFlurry, or nothing at all, there's nothing better. And yes, I will fight anyone about this.

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.
