You'll Be Surprised By This Tea

Everybody has their own way of making tea, but one way is clearly the most superior. It's like comparing drinking water - sure, pool water is water, but would you rather drink diluted bleach water or a cool bottle of Fiji? In the same vein, although several options of tea exist, why drink the horrible kind when you could drink the best?

First of all, avoid iced tea at all costs, especially sweet iced tea. If you want cold tea, put it in the refrigerator. You're just getting scammed if you want to pay for frozen water, which will eventually melt and make your perfectly good tea bland. The only reason to avoid sweet iced tea is so that you don't get stereotyped as Southern - but maybe you want to be, in which case, order away.

Any kind of tea that Starbucks sells is again, automatically canceled. Save your five dollars for something better than overpriced bitter water. And lastly, any tea that comes from a bag is also automatically canceled, simply because it isn't classy enough.

So, what kind of tea should you drink? Loose leaf, obviously. Served hot. Specifically, chai, and specifically extremely milky and sugary. This is for added health benefits. Milk will strengthen your bones more than tea without milk will, which will likely help prevent your chance of developing osteoporosis. Sugar will give you a rush of energy, which you can then harness to exercise.

Many people look down on those who drink tea with a lot of milk. These people probably have broken a bone, if not several bones, before. On the other hand, I drink my tea with plenty of milk, and I have never broken a bone. Sugar is also essential to a balanced diet - even fruits contain sugar. Certain vegetables contain sugar as well, if not all. I have eaten fruit and vegetables, but I enjoy drinking tea more. Those against sugared tea simply enjoy drinking things that don't taste good, or perhaps they have never eaten a fruit or vegetable before. One could argue that a cup of tea is like eating salad - after all, tea comes from leaves.

In conclusion, your tea must be loose leaf, chai, milky, and sugary. It cannot be iced or sweet - there is a clear distinction between sweet tea and sugary tea that is profound and deep. Would you rather eat a salad or drink tea? Would you rather break your legs or not break them? The answers to these questions will lead to the clearly superior answer.

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.
