50 Reasons Why English Is The Most Complicated Language

Image
You may say Chinese, Latin, whatever...

I'm not disagreeing that those are extremely difficult languages to learn (and in some sense, may be the hardest), but I have no desire or need to learn any of those languages right now. As a Texan, I think I'll find most benefit out of trying to re-learn my 4 years of Spanish skills from high school. Como se llama? (Obviously I'm advanced...)

I may be a "lone wolf" on this theory, but English seems to be one of the most popular languages LEARNED around the world -- I didn't say most well-known or most popular languages by volume. Mandarin Chinese blows all other languages out of the water, but China is obviously much bigger than America by population.

The Ultimate Student Reference Guide: College Station, TX

Image
Although I no longer live in College Station, I spent 4 years there as a student at Texas A&M University. I really enjoyed being in College Station, and still miss many parts of it today.

A lot of good memories, a lot of good friends, and a lot of fun times.

Whether you're new to town as an incoming freshman, an incoming graduate student, or just moving there for a job opportunity, I hope you will experience C-Stat to the "max" and enjoy it as much as I did during college.

Although everyone experiences this college town in a different way (and I encourage you to go out and learn about the "in's and out's" on your own), this guide will help you get started by listing some of the best places to go, places to eat, things to do, and things to know in the vastly growing town of College Station.

So, here we go.

Disclaimer: Last time I visited College Station was in October 2015, so I will try to update this as much as possible as I visit each time.

They are also known to be a common side dish to meals (especially at lunch), an appetizer option for many restaurants (especially Tex-Mex, served with salsa/dip), and even a base ingredient for meals (such as nachos, hard tacos, frito pie, etc.). Chips are usually eaten at lunch, dinner, and even as "in-between" snacks.


But for the majority of chip history, they have not been a very healthy snack. 

Until just several years ago, new chip companies and chip products have started to bloom with much healthier options. In fact, did you know Kettle Brand chips were the first non-GMO chip product that was produced for consumers?
