10 Ways To Know You're In Love With Chickfila

10 Ways To Know You're In Love With Chickfila

Because who doesn't love the a chicken sandwich and waffles fries?

If anyone knows me, I love Chickfila. With the new Chickfila coming to campus nearing the end of September, the chicken

1. Even if you're not in the mood for Chickfila you'll still go

Sometimes I might not even be in the mood to go to Chickfila (even though I am most of the time). It's one of those things where I can simply pass by a Chickfila and immediately think "I could go for a Chicken Sandwich Meal right now." The mere presence of the red lettering easily draws me in.

2. Going multiple times in the week without hesitation

I've gotten better(-ish) at trying to cut back, but the Polynesian sauce is too addicting not to. There have been occasions in which I have gone for breakfast and dinner in one day or going for lunch back to back with no regrets. I guess my body may regret it by gaining some extra pounds, but sometimes the Chickfila is worth it.

3. Just Getting Waffle Fries

The waffle fries are a Chickfila tradition. Even if I still want Chickfila and not an entire meal (even though I will always get a meal) I'm always down for just some hot waffle fries and Polynesian sauce.

4. The employees start recognizing you whenever you go

Chickfila holds a close place in my heart. So much that the employees know my order and I don't even have to say anything when I go up to the counter.

5. You've had just about everything on the menu

Even though I love sticking to my usual order, I like to venture out and try different things. I go there so frequently, it would only make sense to experience the menu as a whole.

6. Everyone just sorts of assumes that's where you want to eat

If my friends are ever with me and ask me what I want to eat I usually don't get time to respond before they comment "you want Chickfila don't you?" Sometimes I ponder on the subject as if I don't really want Chickfila. The denial is real

7. Anytime they have something "free" you're there

Free entrees? Free drinks? Anything with the word free in front of it at Chickfila rest assured I will be there. I'll be quick and in a hurry to get there.

8. Dress Like a Cow Day is your favorite day

I will look as ridiculous as I can for Chickfila. I just love it that much.

9. Waiting in line no matter how long it is

With the new Chickfila open on campus, it's going to get hectic and the line will be extremely ridiculous. But, because of my undying love for Chickfila, I will stand in the line no matter how long it may take.

10. Forgetting they aren't open on Sundays

It's the most heartbreaking thing to be in the mood for Chickfila on Sundays knowing they're closed. I will always see the sign or think about chicken minis and then I remember they aren't open. It's the worst kind of betrayal.

Sorry Not Sorry, My Parents Paid For My Coachella Trip

No haters are going to bring me down.

This piece is intended to be a satire of an experience at Coachella.

With Coachella officially over, lives can go back to normal and we can all relive Beyonce’s performance online for years to come. Or, if you were like me and actually there, you can replay the experience in your mind for the rest of your life, holding dear to the memories of an epic weekend and a cultural experience like no other on the planet.

And I want to be clear about the Beyonce show: it really was that good.

But with any big event beloved by many, there will always be the haters on the other side. The #nochella’s, the haters of all things ‘Chella fashion. And let me just say this, the flower headbands aren’t cultural appropriation, they’re simply items of clothing used to express the stylistic tendency of a fashion-forward event.

Because yes, the music, and sure, the art, but so much of what Coachella is, really, is about the fashion and what you and your friends are wearing. It's supposed to be fun, not political! Anyway, back to the main point of this.

One of the biggest things people love to hate on about Coachella is the fact that many of the attendees have their tickets bought for them by their parents.

Sorry? It’s not my fault that my parents have enough money to buy their daughter and her friends the gift of going to one of the most amazing melting pots of all things weird and beautiful. It’s not my fault about your life, and it’s none of your business about mine.

All my life, I’ve dealt with people commenting on me, mostly liking, but there are always a few that seem upset about the way I live my life.

One time, I was riding my dolphin out in Turks and Cacaos, (“riding” is the act of holding onto their fin as they swim and you sort of glide next to them. It’s a beautiful, transformative experience between human and animal and I really think, when I looked in my dolphin’s eye, that we made a connection that will last forever) and someone I knew threw shade my way for getting to do it.

Don’t make me be the bad guy.

I felt shame for years after my 16th birthday, where my parents got me an Escalade. People at school made fun of me (especially after I drove into a ditch...oops!) and said I didn’t deserve the things I got in life.

I can think of a lot of people who probably don't deserve the things in life that they get, but you don't hear me hating on them (that's why we vote, people). Well, I’m sick of being made to feel guilty about the luxuries I’m given, because they’ve made me who I am, and I love me.

I’m a good person.

I’m not going to let the Coachella haters bring me down anymore. Did my parents buy my ticket and VIP housing? Yes. Am I sorry about that? Absolutely not.

Sorry, not sorry!

For The Love Of French Fries

Yes, you read that right. This article is about French Fries.

French fries are easily one of the best snacks ever. They are delicious and compliment almost any meal. As someone who loves all things potato, I wanted to create a fun list of all the reasons I love french fries and why you should love them too!

1. French Fries are potatoes.

Potatoes are amazing. They are beautiful and taste great in any form. Chips, fries, baked potatoes, and mashed potatoes! We don't discriminate against any shape, size, or color when it comes to potatoes.

2. They are versatile.

Fries taste good with burgers, pizza, and they even go great with dessert. Have you ever dipped your fries in a milkshake? YOU HAVE NOT LIVED UNTIL YOU DO THAT!

3. The PERFECT side to any meal.

This characteristic is so important that I decided to include it twice. But seriously, if you haven't tried dipping fries in a milkshake, I'm gonna need to you stop reading right now and go fix that.

4. The variety of sauces is endless.

Ranch. Barbecue. Buffalo. Ketchup. Honey Mustard. Regular Mustard. Hot Sauce. Sweet and Sour. Polynesian Sauce. Chick-fil-A Sauce. Seriously, the possibilities are endless and who doesn't love a snack that they can dip into sauce?

5. They can be curly.

I mean come on, how cool is that? They always taste better curly in my opinion!

6. In addition to curly, there are other shapes and sizes.

You have potato wedges, steak fries, shoestring fries, crinkle cut, and waffle. There is no limit to the beautiful shapes that french fries can come in.

7. They can be an entire meal on their own.

You can get poutine fries, or cheesy fries, chili fries, or truffle fries. You can get taco fries, gravy fries, crabby fries, and disco fries. Depending on the portion size, you've got your meal squared away!

8. They are easy to share.

Not that we ever want to share our fries, but they do make a perfect appetizer and are easy for everyone to dig in!

9. They are always the default side dish.

Nine times out of ten, your meal will automatically come with fries (unless you decide to be crazy and get something else). The universe has made the decision for you and you shouldn't argue with fate. You were meant to have those fries in your life!

10. You can get them salty or sugary.

This might sound weird for people who have never had sugary fries, but its a thing.

11. Sweet potato fries.

I don't even this this reason needs an explanation. Sweet potato fries are life.

12. They are the perfect comfort food.

Maybe this isn't the best reason, but it's true. Fries are always there to fill you up and make you feel better.

Well, I hope you're hungry now because I was just as hungry while writing this. Fries are a yummy treat and we all deserve to treat ourselves every once in awhile. So do yourself a favor and take break, hop in your car, and head to the nearest drive through that sells french fries because lets be honest, do you have anything better do to?
