Can I have a chicken biscuit and a sweet tea, please?

Top Five Southern Food Chains

It's that time of year again when it's time to make the long car trek back to college. If you're like me, you can't wait to get back down south where the food chains are unlike any of the options back up in the north.

Here are the top five southern food chains.

5. Cook-Out. Unfortunately, Cook-Out is only found in North Carolina, Tennessee, South Carolina, Virginia and Georgia. Make sure to get a tray, which provides you with multiple food combinations, and one of their famous milkshakes.And get a spoon because it's one of the thickest milkshakes you'll ever drink. 

4. Bojangles. Known for their famous Chicken n' Biscuits, you can't go wrong. Although Bo's is perfect for a morning stop, thanks to all their breakfast biscuit options, a Cajun chicken biscuit and large $.99 sweet tea will definitely get you through the five hours you still have left in the car. 

3.  Zaxby's. Everything on the menu at Zaxby's is spelled with a "z" or ends with a "z" -- and it's totally fine because ordering Chicken Fingerz with Zaxby Sauce and Texas Toast is a the mid-day pick me up you've alwayz dreamed of. However, Zaxby's ice is the greatest part of the meal. Call me crazy, but next time you order a soft drink from Zaxby's check it out.  

2. Rasing Canes: Chicken Fingers on chicken fingers on chicken fingers. Add Canes sauce. Done deal.  

1. Chick-Fil-A. Chick-fil-A has to take the number one spot. From chicken mini's in the morning, to chicken biscuits at night, Chick-Fil-A will definitely have you wanting to "Eat Mor Chicken" as told by the cows featured in all their advertisements. They provide multiple sauce choices including: BBQ, Honey Mustard, Polynesian Sauce, and the famous Chick-Fil-A sauce. My go-to sauce choices are definitely the Chick-Fil-A and Polynesian sauces.

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.
