10 Reasons Why Good Soup Is Every College Kid's Best Friend

Living in a dorm, it can be a little tricky to find meals that are easy to make and actually taste alright. But fear not, because I've found the answer to this problem: soup.

It's warm.

Especially around this time of year, warm foods are a must. And soup is not only warm, it makes you feel warm on the inside.

It's filling.

Sometimes it takes a lot of food from the dining hall to fill me up, but one bowl of soup does the job super quick. And it's not an uncomfortable, bloated kind of full, either. Just a completely satisfactory one.

It's easy to make.

Seriously I can't think of anything easier to make than soup. In most cases you just put it in a bowl or mug and microwave it until it's hot and ready to eat. It's literally the EASIEST preparation!

It's easy to store. 

Soup, for the most part, comes in cans. Not all college students have fridges to store things in, but most soup doesn't have to be refrigerated, so no problem!

It doesn't create a lot of unnecessary dishes.

Sometimes cooking can seem like a hassle because of all of the dishes you have to do afterwards, but like I said with the easy preparation, soup also leaves little to no cleanup.

There's so many different kinds.

You can't ever really get bored of soup, because there's so many different kinds to choose from! You could get a different soup every day for at least a week!

It's super cheap!

Some brands of soup sell cans for less than a dollar each, which makes it a really cheap meal for the person on the college kid budget.

You're never not in the mood for soup. 

Seriously, soup is always the answer.

And if you seriously aren't, you forget that the second it hits your tongue

Once you start ingesting it, your body remembers why you love soup so much.

It always hits the spot

Soup is pretty much food for the soul.

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.
