traveling gluten free
“But, the Spanish eat cheese and bread with everything!” This is what I commonly heard when talking to people about my diet restrictions on gluten and dairy prior to leaving on the Camino de Santiago de Compostela in Spain – a 500-mile pilgrimage that would require me to eat close to 5,000 calories a day in order to handle trekking an average of 15 miles a day, while only being able to carry 15 lbs on my back.  Here’s to hoping the Camino provides (a common phrase you hear throughoutRead More

A few months ago, I was lucky enough to attend a VIP whisky and barbecue tasting with renowned barbecue chef Adam Perry Lang. That night, I learned plenty about barbecuing and whisky, as Mr. Lang shared his recipes for George Dickel Whisky barbecue rubs. It was a delicious, interesting evening. Last week, Adam Perry Lang appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live! to show viewers what I learned that night – that whisky and barbecue go hand in hand. Chef Perry Lang makes his barbecue handmade and with great intention, just likeRead More

Top Instagram Accounts You Should Follow

Being the social media guru that I am, I like exploring and discovering new accounts on Instagram. I look for inspiration, funny, motivation, and adventure-seeking. Many people I know also look for fashion and beauty fixes. Instagram is filled with so many things to spice up your feed, here’s some top accounts you should be following… If you’re into sports… Serena Williams- @serenawilliams Besides being athletic, she also has a silly side. Her IG features fun Dubsmashes, outfit pics and action shots.   If you’re into fitness… Kaisa and Jennifer-Read More

Top Five Worst Customers I’ve Seen So Far

Okay, I will never be the first person to say that getting a job when you’re allowed to is a bad thing, but I’ll also never be the person to say that getting a job is full of sunshine and rainbows and that it restores your faith in humanity, because it doesn’t– that’s a lie perpetuated by movies and TV and the occasional blogger. Nevertheless, I still have a job, for, y’know, college. To celebrate almost a full year in this particular job– whose nickname rhymes with Rickey Lee’s– I’veRead More

Restaurant Employees Yelp Review Customers

I used to go on Yelp to help me decide where to go to eat or get takeout. I don’t really do that anymore. Why? Because despite the assertion that Yelp exists ostensibly for this purpose, I’ve found that it skews largely negative, at least where I live. I suppose this makes sense in some way. People are more likely to be moved to write a review of a restaurant if they’ve had a bad experience there. (People fucking LOVE bitching about stuff.) Otherwise they’re too busy stuffing their facesRead More
In this generation, dinner dates are very rare now unless you are in a relationship with the person. But, for those who are still firm believers in ’em, join the club. I recently went on a date that was complete crap – all because of what the person was eating. He ordered large wings with tons of sauce and extra ranch on the side. As he bit into the wing, the sauce was in the corner of his mouth and on his upper lip.  He was sucking and licking hisRead More

Universal College Bucketlist

Regardless of which college you attend, these are 16 must-do’s to put on your bucketlist. College is called the best four years of our lives for a reason—but it’s also such a short time we must take advantage of. Not only are the academic opportunities plentiful, but the callings for adventure are, as well. With greater independence and freedom, this is our chance to explore beyond our comfort zones and discover every facet of ourselves. Good luck!   1. Attend a sporting event Regardless of whether your school is aRead More
Bananas are typically a gentle, mellow fruit.  The shell of their sweet meat is a harbinger of peace and tranquility.  Generally harmless, these fruits can exhibit passive signs of aggressiveness (should they be provoked) that, if not taken seriously, could lead to major repercussions for our diet as human beings.  Here are some things to avoid:   1. Separating it from its bunch Bananas are a pack fruit, they hang out in family groups–much like the Brady bunch.  In fact, a group of wild bananas is referred to as aRead More
In February, I got a job at a locally-owned burger joint in Dallas, TX to earn some money for when I go back to school in the Fall.  Since working there, I have noticed that some people truly don’t know what it’s like to work in the service industry and treat us as such.  Here’s a list of reasons why everyone should either have at least one service job in their life, or should sympathize with those who do.   1. You understand how much tips mean. Tipping your waitressRead More
From: srm5082@gmail.com To: care@seamless.com Subject: Re: Confirmed! Randy’s Chinese Food received your order. Estimated delivery: 45-60 minutes. [12:11 a.m.] To Whom It May Concern— Please cancel this order. When I placed it mere moments ago, the Seamless website told me there had been an error, and that I should start from the beginning and order again. Being in the famished state I am, I opted to not give Seamless another try. It’d be a waste of valuable time if I were to recreate the order only to find another errorRead More

Top 5 Most Delicious Childhood Treats

It’s already been established that the best time to be a kid ever in the history of the universe was the 90’s. Many awesome factors contributed to this, but none quite as sugary as some of the epic treats. Let’s take a moment to remember the deliciousness and be grateful that nobody really cared about whether or not anything was organic back then.   Mondo/Squeezeits It’s hard to say what was more awesome about the Mondo/Squeezeit drinking experience. The cool plastic bottles with the twist-off caps or the fact that youRead More

5 Snapchat Don’ts

Everyone using Snapchat has those friends who send out excessive amounts of Snapchats every day. If you are one of those annoying assholes people, you are in luck. This article will help you refrain from sending the Snapchats that make everyone watch for the first second and click to skip to the next dumb ass Snapchat story.   The “It’s only 11 a.m. and I’m drunk” Snap You’re really not that cool. We all woke up at 8 A.M a few times (most Saturdays) in college still drunk off ourRead More
Food is honestly one of my closest companions. It is there for me in the day and in the night, and when I call, it always answers. I love food more than I love people. I like to think that others think the same. Here are a few phrases that I put together that hold true when it comes to comparing food and guys: 1.”I still feel so satisfied…” (3 hours later) 2.”Chocolate will always understand.” 3. “Cheese is never late.” 4. “Fried chicken never argues.” 5. “Pizza answers whenRead More
