This Is Exactly What Your Go-To Kids Menu Meal Says About You

Here's what you chose to eat during your pickiest stage of eating says about you.

This Is Exactly What Your Go-To Kids Menu Meal Says About You

Every kid's menu looks almost identical, no matter the restaurant, and most of us had a go-to meal when we went out to eat until we finally reached our teen years and graduated to the adult menu.

Chicken Fingers

A classic. If this was your go-to meal at restaurants as a kid you were doing it right. Chicken fingers are the only kids menu item I still find myself eyeing to this day.

Bonus points if you opted to dip them in honey mustard over ketchup. Honey mustard and chicken fingers is the ultimate pairing.

Grilled Cheese

It's almost impossible to mess up a grilled cheese, and you knew that. You were a kid that played it safe. If you chose to pair your grilled cheese with tomato soup, you had a sophisticated palette even at a young age.

Pasta With Tomato Sauce

This is the most basic option to order as a kid. Everyone likes pasta with red sauce, and you were the type of the kid that liked the things everyone did. Your favorite TV show was probably Spongebob. No judgment, you just lacked a little originality.

Butter Pasta

You were the pickiest of picky eaters as a kid. Not only did you order the most basic of meals, but you skipped out on the most flavorful part of a pasta dish -- tomato sauce. You probably still are a picky eater to this day.


While a PB&J is a tasty treat that I still enjoy today, I definitely would have looked at you funny if you ordered this out to eat, especially as a dinner. I mean c'mon, you're ordering something that involves no cooking at a restaurant. I'm sure your parents were also disappointed to spend at least six dollars on a sandwich that costs cents to make.


Solid choice, but unless you were lactose intolerant, why not get the cheeseburger. Cmon, it has CHEESE!


This was always a hit or miss depending on the restaurant, but at places with a good cheeseburger, you knew what you were doing. You probably doused it in ketchup (maybe along with everything else you ate as a kid) but who cares? Ketchup is absolutely delicious.

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.
