Things That Cereal Lovers Understand

Do you remember when you were a kid and you were SO EXCITED when you woke up to eat breakfast? CEREALLLLLLLLLL!!!!! Cereal! Your instant thought would be all the boxes hidden away in your pantry or aligned colorfully above your fridge. Having cereal was such a fun thing, especially when you had options to choose from. Commercials of cereals were always fun to watch, and even to this day you may still enjoy them. Cereal is life.

You may not realize it, but you know way more cereal catch phrases than you think.

Because you watched a ton a TV as a kid, cereal commercials were constantly on. They each had their own characters like Tony the Tiger, Snap, Crackle, and Pop, Lucky the Leprechaun, Toucan Sam, Cap'n Crunch etc. Whether you know it or not, you absorbed all the phrases like:

"Gotta have my Pops!"

"I'm coo-coo for Cocoa Puffs!"

"They're grrrreat!"

"Silly rabbit, Trix are for kids!"

"The taste you can see ..."

And will always remember Cinnamon beating Apple:

Also, this is very important:

When you're staying in a hotel and there's a wide assortment of flavors.

Sometimes if you're out for food you tell yourself that you won't get something you can eat at home. But this logic completely disappears when you see the stack of personal boxes of cereal or dispensers filled waiting for you to eat!! They call your name ... and you can't resist!

Cereal is great at any hour.

Midnight snack couldn't get any more perfect. Chilling on your couch, watching TV, and a bowl of cereal is what you instantly think of when you want a midnight snack. Especially if it's a cereal that you haven't had for a while.

It's a great food to eat when you want to eat your feelings.

We've all experienced feeling miserable for something at some point. Some people eat ice cream to make them feel better, you eat cereal.

You love cereal so much you already know you're gonna have a second bowl.

There's no shame in the fact that you'll be eating half the box in one sitting, but the real struggle is when you're on your last bowl. The remaining pieces are soggy, you have almost an entire bowl of milk left, and now a half a box empty of cereal.

Let's not forget those awesome prizes.

Toys in cereal. Could life get any better? Yes you had a collection of toys from fast food restaurants, but finding a toy inside a cereal box was the best thrill ever. The moment you got home with your new cereal, you instantly opened it up to find the toy so you could play with it while eating.

I bet you will agree that this was the greatest toy in cereal history:

But we all know that:

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.

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.
