What It's Like To Always Want Breakfast Food
Not The It Girls

College kids have a bad reputation for not knowing how to cook. Supposedly, we live off of ramen, t.v. dinners and peanut butter and jelly sandwiches.

While I'd love to be able to live off of these inexpensive meals all of my life, they are just plain boring. Breakfast foods, on the other hand, are never dull. There are many assorted items that are acceptable breakfast foods, even though they might qualify as desserts for other meals. Breakfast satisfies all ranges of your palate and just about anyone can make breakfast food. Eggs, bacon, pancakes, waffles and coffee all have pretty explicit preparation directions. No matter what anyone says, you can make breakfast food anytime of the day and it will provide a wholesome meal.

First, you get up to start the coffee pot. The aroma of pressed grinds fills your apartment within minutes. You pour yourself a cup, take a sip and release a sigh of satisfaction. Then you spill the whole damn cup on yourself, making you crankier than you already were.

You're upset and drenched in scalding hot coffee now. The thought of making breakfast seems like a lost cause. But you're still hungry, and nothing sounds more comforting than breakfast food.

You reason with yourself, "I'll just have milk instead of coffee. It goes well with breakfast food."

You turn on the stove and begin fixing your protein in one pan. Bacon and eggs are always good for a grumbling tummy.

Then to satisfy your sweet tooth craving, you throw some mix in your waffle iron. A waffle is one of the only foods that tastes great with EVERYTHING - chocolate chips, chicken, strawberries, blueberries, whipped cream, syrup, you name it. Seriously, a fluffy siracha kale waffle sounds better than a flat, flavorless crêpe.

You've created a breakfast for a champion. That champion is you. Dig in.

Sure, breakfast can be a roller coaster of emotions, but it's still the best meal of the day. So why not have it three times a day?

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List
http://www.factandmyth.com/the-middle-class/are-mi...

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Disney

After surviving a year of college and watching "Clueless" countless times, I've come to the conclusion that college boy charm is very much a real thing and it's very very attractive. It's easiest explained through Paul Rudd's character, Josh, in "Clueless". The boy who has a grip on his life and is totally charming. In this article, I will list the qualities of a specimen with College Boy Charm, to help you identify him at your next party or other social events.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?
https://pixabay.com/photos/tiktok-social-media-app-tik-tok-5323007/

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
