Ah, it's that time of year again, where love and cheer are residents of the air. What better way to celebrate such things than over a yummy meal?! Here are 5 places I love to visit for a great meal when it's chilly out. Enjoy <3

1. Mimi's Cafe

Mimi's is one of my favorite breakfast joints in Greensboro, NC. They have delicious omelets and quiches, decadent breakfast sweets (the cinnamon roll French toast is literal heaven), and mimosas. If you're looking for a chill spot for a hearty brunch, I recommend this dive!

2. Village Tavern

This is hands down my favorite place for a *fancy* (yet oh-so affordable) lunch when my parents visit me at UNCG! Their hot crab dip is hot, gooey deliciousness I always have to order whenever I visit the restaurant. Their filet mignon is definitely a crowd-pleaser too! Yet, my best-kept secret/guilty-pleasure would have to be their warm butter cake...let's just say you haven't lived until you've tried it.

3. The Mason Jar Tavern

It's cute, kinda homey, and houses a really delicious BLT. But, not just any BLT. Nope. This one has candied bacon!! Oh, did I forget to mention it also has fried green tomatoes on it? I did? My bad. Also (as if things couldn't get any better!), they do car pickups. Gotta love a restaurant that's mindful of social distancing!

4. Lucky 32 Southern Kitchen

Lucky 32 is one of those fab, yummy restaurants in Cary and Greensboro, NC that uses local produces to create all their marvelous dishes. So, their menu also has new, seasonal additions from time to time (butternut squash soup anyone?)! It's the perfect date night spot if you like classic, Southern dishes like skillet-fried chicken, fried green tomatoes, or shrimp and grits.

5. Superior Bakery

Located in Fayetteville, NC, this is one of those bakeries that make you want to eat dessert first! This fab spot was opened in 1956 by Greek immigrants. They have delicious desserts and baked goods ranging from filled croissants to fresh bread. With yummilicious pastries and a quaint, hometown bakery feel, It's simply a must-go.

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.
