What Food Is It? A Deep-Dive

Every food is simply one of six options. Accept it.

There is this long-famed claim that each food is either a soup, salad, or sandwich. Frustrating? Yes. But I'd like to break it down a little further and get more specific. I believe each food is not one of three. Instead, it is one of six. Without further ado, here are the only possible options for your food.

1. Sandwich

We'll start easy. Simply put, a sandwich is any food between two pieces of bread. Examples include sandwiches (of course), hamburgers, ice cream cookie sandwiches, ritz crackers, Oreo's, s'mores, and macrons.

2. Soup

Soup is also simple, just as any liquid or soft substance served in a bowl or cup, toppings optional. Soups, cereal, ice cream sundaes, smoothies, milkshakes, salsa and oatmeal all qualify under soup.

3. Salad

A salad is like a soup, but the dry ingredients incorporated are the true star that distances itself from our previous category. The dressing supports the dish rather than the other way around. Prime examples include popcorn, handfuls of candy, pasta with sauce, trail mix, mac and cheese, stir fry, and rice.

4. Taco

A taco includes any food that is encompassed on three sides by an unbreaking piece of bread, rather than two distinct parts. Hot dogs, soup in a bread bowl, the now-famed salmon rice when it's scooped into seaweed, stuffed peppers, potato skins, and sub sandwiches are all, in fact, tacos.

5. Ravioli

A ravioli is any food that is fully encompassed by another piece of food. Notable mentions include a wrap, a Reese's cup, a Pop-Tart, egg rolls, pies, and burritos - Accept it!!!

6. Toast

Toast is anything open-faced and unenclosed that exists without being tossed together, and it often has toppings on top, like butter on toast. Cupcakes, pizza, meat with seasoning or sauce, baked potatoes, pancakes with syrup, donuts, and corn on the cob are perfect examples. If you're eating something without any seasoning or sauce at all, like an apple, per se, it is still toast, just simply plain.

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.
