My Poke Bowl Addiction

I've spent $80 at this restaurant in one week. I'm addicted.

Last semester I discovered the world of poke bowls. I've always loved sushi and had heard of poke bowls before, but I was too suspicious to try it. My big brought one home towards the end of March and told me I had to try it because I would definitely love it. Ever since I have emptied my bank account at Beech and I do not regret it- well kinda.

I get a very simple bowl that consists of brown rice, ahi tuna, avocado, seaweed salad, and lemon miso dressing. The only problem is, both the avocado and seaweed salad are an extra dollar. Therefore, the one I buy is approximately 16 dollars. In the last week I have gone 5 times and tonight I am probably going for the sixth.

I need someone to help me control this addiction. Food is definitely a priority high on my list, but breaking the bank is not.

Last night for dinner I tried a new place in downtown Charleston and ordered pretty much the same bowl I buy at Beech. Although the dressing was a little different, I still loved it, but it was only three dollars cheaper. Although I did save three, I could save a whole lot more by cutting down the number of bowls I buy altogether.

I am also nervous that if I eat too many poke bowls now I will be very sick of them and not be able to eat them ever again. I've definitely overeaten at other places, like Verde, and now I can't even walk into the place.

Long story short, I need more self-control. Please, if anyone sees me walking into Beech this week, stop me and tell me to go home. I don't have the money — but I am definitely addicted.

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.
