13 Things You'll Only Relate To If You Can't Cook, Like, AT ALL

Like, your dog is a better cook than you.

13 Things You'll Only Relate To If You Can't Cook, Like, AT ALL

When you come to college you will either float or sink when you make the move to an apartment from living on campus, because you'll actually have to cook for yourself for once instead of walking to a dining hall.

So here's a list of 13 things you've definitely experienced if you don't know how to cook, like, at all. The struggle is real!

1. Having fast food employees know your order just from seeing you.

2. Ordering to-go from restaurants just to eat somewhat healthy.

3. Your freezer is mostly filled with frozen meals that you cook in the microwave or the oven.

4. The microwave is your best friend in the kitchen.

5. Your pantry is stocked with all different types of pasta and pre-made sauce in a can or jar.

The pasta ranges from ramen noodles to mac n' cheese, or just plain pasta that you can mix with any sauce.

6. You send photos of meals you have cooked to your parents for appraisal.

7. You call your parents when you have questions about something you are cooking.

8. All your recipes have five or less ingredients.

9. Even with few ingredients and direction you mess up.

10. You follow many food accounts to look at amazing meals that you wish you could cook.

11. You over cook chicken all the time, even with a meat thermometer.

12. You have no patience when making a meal.

13. You buy certain foods in bulk to save money because you know you'll go through it within a month.

Don't worry, the holidays are right around the corner and you can get some homecooked meals without having to cook them for yourself.

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.
