Food is the Way to Everyone's Heart

Top 10 College Comfort Foods

Food — the most important, beautiful, greatest thing on this planet. Some say eat to live, but we all know we live to eat. Anytime we feel sad, mad, regret, happy, excited or any other emotion you can possibly think of, we want to eat. When it comes to college, however, we can't always afford the food that we want to be able to cozy up on a couch and eat. There are some foods though that we can all (especially college kids) can afford that make all of us feel a little better. Here are the top ten comfort foods especially for college students.

1. Cereal

Okay it may not be everyone's comfort food, but there are so many different kinds and it is so easy to make I'm really not sure how it can't be everybody's go to food when they are a little hungry.

2. Ramen

Since college kids cannot really budget to afford pasta and sauce and maybe some meat, so we settle for ramen. Who doesn't love noodles in a cup when you're sad and lonely?

3. Mashed Potatoes

From instant mashed potatoes to KFC mashed potatoes, you can't really go wrong. Fluffy, soft potatoes can make everyone's heart happy.

4. Waffles

Or any other breakfast food will do, but especially some toasted Eggo waffles. If you're really feeling rich one night, a 2 AM Waffle House run can never make someone say no.

5. Grilled Cheese

Butter, toast and melted cheese? I really don't think there is a better or easier combination.

6. Doughnuts

Krispy Kreme or Dunkin may be kind of a luxury, but isn't it so worth it? Doughnuts can completely turn my day upside down. If anything I will settle for some good old fashioned powdered doughnuts in a bag.

7. Ice Cream

We all scream for ice cream! Literally. Movies and tubs of ice cream just call for a beautiful night by myself.

8. Mac & Cheese

Especially the individual microwavable kind, right? So easy and so quick and so, so beautifully cheesy. I'm really not sure where I would be without my mac and cheese cups.

9. Fried Food

From fried chicken to french fries to fried pickles to fried pretty much anything, you can't go wrong. I am always craving a cheeseburger with some good french fries. Or is that just me?

10. Pizza

I really don't think there is an explanation for pizza. If you don't love pizza I hate you. You should have Domino's on speed dial.

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.
