Working in Food Services: Told by the Krusty Krab
Spongebob Squarepants

Sometimes Spongebob is way too real. For example, I could easily compare my work life to the Krusty Krab. From hunger-crazed customers, to cheap owners like Mr. Krabs, Spongebob sums up the food service experience pretty accurately.

1. Hangry customers.

There is nothing scarier than a restaurant full of hungry people. I once had a grown man verbally assault me because we were busy and he didn't get his food right away like he wanted to. Hangry people are not people to be reckoned with!

2. Customers that feel entitled.

America's fast food culture promotes the idea of entitlement. At the sandwich shop where I work, we give out complimentary pickles. Occasionally we run out, because a lot of people really like them. This one guy was way too serious about his pickles. He came on a day where we ran out. He asked if he could have his meal refunded because he didn't get his free know, the ones he didn't pay anything for. This man also threatened to call corporate. We were straight outta pickles and he was straight outta luck!

3. Cheap owners.

Working in the food industry, you don't get paid what you deserve, and occasionally you feel it.

4. Closing shift.

The closing shift always feels a little sketchy, especially when you're taking the trash out by yourself. Is this walk to the dumpster going to be your last? *insert horror movie music here*

5. How everyone really feels.

I think most people can relate to this. Nobody really wants to be at work. As the days go on, I find my attitude less like Spongebob's and more like Squidward's!

6. When the work day takes an eternity.

Sometimes it seems like a long shift lasts an eternity. This is especially true when the store gets slow. The time slots where nobody comes in can sometimes make the day go by so much slower. These are the times where you look at the clock at 3:00 and half an hour later you look at the clock again and it's really only 3:04.

7. When the store finally closes.

People try and come in when the store is clearly closed. Sometimes people forget that we want to go home too! But it always makes me laugh a little bit when I see people do this. #suckstosuck

8. When you can finally go home.

The best feeling is when everything is finished. You take your name tag off, gather your belongings, clock out and head home. There is no better feeling than this after a long day of work!

Being an adult isn't all that it's cracked up to be. Having a job can be really stressful, but not paying your bills isn't really an option. But really, is anything better than serving up smiles? I think not.

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.
