Things All Ralph's Workers Know To Be True
Karmin Kusine Tour

Ralph's is the ultimate summer hot spot for those living in the New York/New Jersey area. This summer, I began working out of a Ralph's on Long Island. While I've been sucking down Blue Hawaii smoothies since I was in preschool, working there has given me a whole new perspective on the company and the tasty treats. Here are a few things that all Ralph's workers know to be true.

1. NSA ices are the bane of our existence.

For those who don't know NSA stands for: no sugar added and without a doubt the hardest thing to scoop in the entire store. When somebody orders a pint of NSA lemon, chances are we're secretly crying inside.

2. We don't get unlimited free ices.

I know that each location differs, but at my store, we are allowed one free small ice during our shift; after that, we have to pay for everything else. Nothing is more annoying than having your friends constantly text you to bring them free ices after your shift.

3. Our soft serve is bomb.

Before working at Ralph's, I never even knew they sold soft serve ice cream. Now, I like it even better than some of our ices and i'm honestly surprised it's not as popular.

4. Twister Tuesdays are nuts.

Every Tuesday, our Twister's (which is any flavor Italian ice served in between any flavor of soft serve) are buy one get one free. Chances are, the line is going to be around the block that night.

5. Blackberry cheesecake and berry burst are the most irrelevant flavors.

Some of the girls I work with have been there for three years, and have never had a customer order those two flavors.

6. It's the perfect summer job.

Even with the dried ice cream stains constantly up my arm, and the far superior right muscle, I wouldn't want to spend my summer doing anything else!

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.
