My mother and I are always on the lookout for the trendiest and hottest new restaurants in New Orleans. One of my mother's friends told her about Cavan, and we were intrigued—not to mention this restaurant is haunted which makes the whole experience 100 times better—but the ghosts weren't the things taking our breath away when we walked up to this beautiful Magazine Street restaurant. When we first laid eyes on this marvelous old white New Orleans style mansion with blue shutters, the whole experience began. We were first seated in the most amazing salmon velvet chairs under mesmerizing crystal chandeliers. We then were served seasoned oyster crackers and then we pondered the menu of porch drinks and seafood. We were served some of the best food I have ever eaten (this is a big deal y'all, I have a food Instagram and I don't mess around). Then were asked about dessert, which of course we couldn't deny. We dug into the best peanut butter chocolate cake I have ever put in my mouth (be careful, the desserts change all the time, but the key lime pie will always be there... and they have popsicles which are perfect for those hot New Orleans days!)... And just like that I have a new restaurant to suggest to al of my friends.

You look at the menu and think you were at the beach—from a raw bar to different seafood inspired soups, salads, and toasts; there is so many great options to choose from. There menu ranges from a whole fish to a soothing cup of gumbo... and look at these Old Bay seasoned fries. I literally died because they were so amazing. They literally changed my life forever... I will never be the same person.

Cavan is up and coming and you should be the first to take your friends here. Reserve a spot on their breezy porch, grab a drink (they have espresso milk punch!) and people watch the night away.

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.

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.
