As you may know, Wendy’s brought back their spicy chicken nuggets in August. I was so excited. My addiction to spicy chicken nuggets began when I was in sixth grade.

I have lived in the United States for about a year and a half and have already tried the Chinese food here.  When I first had it, to be honest, I was surprised by the taste. I have noticed people living here usually order egg rolls, sweet-and-sour chicken, fried rice, and beef with broccoli.  ...

My favorite restaurant is UMI Sushi in Atlanta. The first time I went, I was in seventh grade.  I can still remember what I wore that night.

Very few people can say that they have had strep throat on a mission trip in a remote village in Fiji. I am one of the few.  All was going well until I felt that tell-tale stinging in my throat.

There are plenty of chairs at my house but there is one chair that is superior to all the others. It is not only superior because of itself but its location and what surrounds it.

Macon is a good place for people to branch out and find the hidden gems for restaurants in Macon. Over time, I have found some of the best, low-key places to eat.

Even though it was almost a year away...
