Poetry On Odyssey: 2 Knickerbocker Glory Haikus

It's the Harry Potter treat that pondered Americans for years.

If you've ever read the first of the Harry Potter books, you've probably heard the term "Knickerbocker Glory." However, you likely had no idea what kind of treat this British confection was. Actually, it's an ice cream parfait sometimes layered with peaches, raspberries, strawberry syrup, and quite a lot of vanilla ice cream. It's topped with whipped cream, a cherry, and sometimes nuts or hundreds and thousands (British way of saying sprinkles since there are usually 'hundreds and thousands' of these tiny candy toppings in the shakers)! If this tantalizing treat is making your tongue swirl around your lips and your eyes light up, here are two haiku poems describing this indulgence:

Cone-shaped glass of bliss

Fruity and creamy goodness

Scooped up with a spoon.

Peaches and berries

Or Jell-O, cake, and syrup

However you like.

(This second one is based on the fact that there are really no rules set in stone of how to make a knickerbocker glory. The description given at the beginning is just an example)!

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.

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.
