The Art Of Brunching

Stuffing your face until you feel ill after a long night? Yes please.

The Art Of Brunching

Brunch by definition is "a late morning meal eaten instead of breakfast and lunch," but it means so much more than that. Brunch can soothe your sadness and give you hope. Whether it's bottomless brunch or pay by the plate, brunch is there for you when no one else is.

There is absolutely nothing like waking up in the morning to a sweet text from your bestie, "Brunch?" I would definitely call myself a brunch enthusiast. Stuffing your face until you feel ill after a long night? Yes please.

The best brunch by far that I've ever had in my life is the all-you-can-eat brunch at Farmers Fishers Bakers in Washington, D.C. Not only were the options of what you could eat endless, but you could literally nap in the cinnamon rolls. Like, seriously, go to sleep in the cinnamon-y goodness. The brunch was so good, but I nearly missed out on it by making a rookie mistake. I started with the breads, and then tried to fit everything else into my stomach. Of course, every brunch-er knows you must start with the light items, i.e. eggs, yogurt, etc. And end with the powerhouse breads like cinnamon rolls, french toast, and pancakes. Don't worry, I learned my lesson, and I'm here to share my knowledge with you.

I, like many of my friends, live in Lexington, Kentucky. Not exactly what you would call the brunch capital of the world. However, I've found more than a few hole-in-the-wall brunch places I strongly recommend, and here they are:

1. Josie's

This place is an absolute go-to if your parents are in town. There is always a line out the door, so you know it's good.

My pick: Biscuits and Gravy

2. Lexington Diner

This place is one of the cutest in Lexington. It gives off a very home-away-from-home feel with friendly waiters and homemade pies.

3. Limestone Blue

With an endless menu and a cute outdoor sitting area, who wouldn't want to go?

Brunch on!

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.
