Never in my 21 years on this earth have I heard anyone claim that the turkey is their favorite thing about Thanksgiving. If it is, you're probably in the 1% of people on earth that think so. Just saying. So why is turkey the worst part of Thanksgiving? Here are 25 reasons.

It Takes Forever To Cook

Giphy

I'm hungry and you're going to be in the oven for 5 hours? Seriously??

It's A Giant Bird

Giphy

The idea alone makes me want to become a vegetarian.

Carving it takes time too

Giphy

The clock is still ticking. I'm still hungry.

It's Just A Giant Piece Of Meat

Giphy

What's so great about it?? Let me know.

It Always Has The Most Leftover

Giphy

Because most people don't go back for seconds...

Literally Everything On The Table Is Better

Giphy

Everything.

Mashed Potatoes Are Better

Giphy

If you don't like potatoes, you're wrong.

Stuffing Is Better

Giphy

But not the kind that goes in the actual bird... *gags*

Sweet Potatoes Are Better

Giphy

With or without marshmallows, roasted, mashed, fried. Still better.

Cranberry Sauce Is Better

Giphy

And I don't even like cranberry sauce.

Broccoli Cheese Casserole Is Better

Giphy

If you tried it, you'd agree. It's a family staple.

Green Beans Are Better

Giphy

Eat your greens.

Salad Is Better

Giphy

Again. EAT. YOUR. GREENS.

Brussel Sprouts Are Better

Giphy

Coming from me, that says a lot.

Dinner Roles Are Better

Giphy

Bread. Duh.

Mac and Cheese Is Better

Giphy

Again, duh.

Gravy Is Better

Giphy

NO IT DOESN'T HAVE TO GO ON THE TURKEY.

Corn Bread Is Better

Giphy

It totally counts as a vegetable.

Snickerdoodles Cookies Are Better

Giphy

I only make these around the holidays and they are 10/10

Pumpkin Pie Is Better

Giphy

The official mascot of thanksgiving dinner.

Apple Pie Is Better

Giphy

A personal favorite.

Chocolate Creme Pie Is Better

Giphy

Chocolate is always better. Always.

Pecan Pie Is Better

Giphy

Honestly I can't vouch for this one but I bet I would still enjoy it more than a giant bird.

All The Pies Are Better

Giphy

Facts.

I Repeat. IT'S JUST A GIANT BIRD. 

Giphy

In case you forgot. *shrugs shoulders*

Maybe Thanksgiving isn't REALLY all about the turkey... but I'm still sticking with the fact that Thanksgiving could go without it. Oh well. Have a happy thanksgiving!

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.

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.
