Sorry, But Those Boneless "Wings" You're Eating? Yeah, They're NOT Wings

Let's be honest here.

Sorry, But Those Boneless "Wings" You're Eating? Yeah, They're NOT Wings

Anyone that knows me know that chicken wings are my favorite food of all time.

And when I say favorite food, I really mean it. I'll eat any type of chicken wings you put in front of me, whether they're smothered in barbecue sauce, buffalo sauce or just plain fried, and dipped in blue cheese, of course (definitely not ranch dressing, but I'll save that debate for another article). Clearly, I love them all.

When it comes to "boneless" wings, however, it's a no from me.

Let's be real, boneless wings AREN'T EVEN WINGS. They're just chicken nuggets for adults. Everyone I know prefers these monstrosities just because they keep your hands clean and are easier to eat, but where's the fun in that?

When I eat my wings, I like to get my hands messy, my face slathered in sauce and lick my fingers at the end. That's how a REAL person eats REAL wings if we're being honest.

The NPD Group did a study called "The Chicken Wing Dilemma" and found that the most popular type of wings are bone-in, with servings of bone-in up 6 percent while declining by a similar rate for boneless wings.

All of you real chicken wing hating, adult chicken nugget eating people can go on with your lives, not eating the real thing. If you need me, I'll be in my room eating some yummy bone-in buffalo wings. More for me!

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.
