Dear 100 Hour Board,

Someone recently showed me that chocolate whipped cream is a thing and it has been a game changer. What are some "game changers" you've learned about recently.

Dear Wowed,

Having enough money to buy things like books.

Working at a real job is fantastic.

Dear Whoa,

Realizing I can buy dairy-free chocolate chips at WinCo for a lot cheaper compared to a bag at Walmart. (At Walmart the dairy-free kind are twice as expensive). THEN realizing I can melt those chocolate chips in microwave and mix in peanut butter. That way I feel like I can have something similar to a Reeses. Whoah.

Dear Flabbergasted, 

Garnier Whole Blends coconut oil leave-in conditioner. That stuff smells amazing and man, my hair is nicer than it's ever been. It doesn't get oily and gross, and my split ends are going away. It's a miracle. 

Also, IKEA HAS A WEDDING REGISTRY OPTION, do you understand how exciting this is????

Cheers,

Dear Woah,

That "apparently" it's "illegal" to "double park," even though I was just doing it because there was no other parking and that NCMO wasn't gonna happen if I couldn't park somewhere.

Dear Wowza,

Uh, that chocolate whipped cream is a thing. Thanks for spreading the love.

Dear Whoa,

I learned this summer that you can go to the grill at the Creamery on Ninth and get a kid's meal for $5, which (despite the diminutive name) gets you an entree with fries, a drink, and ice cream. In terms of bang for your buck where a quick meal is concerned, I think it pretty handily beats anything at the Cougareat, unless you're lucky enough to be there during the rare season that Taco Bell is running one of their decent five-dollar box meals.

Genuinely,

Dear Woah,

Two days ago I was at my friend's house and we decided to make ramen for dinner. We put an egg in it and frozen vegetables (innovative, but also pretty standard), but then he put thyme in his. Total game changer. He doesn't like the broth too much, but you can just drink the broth first and then add a little butter and some thyme. It probably tastes twice as good (which bumps a 4/10 ramen to an 8/10 ramen, so take it how you will). It's still ramen so I'm not going to eat it every day, but it's nice to have options.
