TikTok is known to create viral sensations of certain people, songs, dances or helpful tips. The app is also the source of many popular recipes that are usually different and intriguing — or in this case, easy and simple.
With the fall weather approaching, it’s the perfect time to explore one of Charlottesville's most popular attractions, the farmers market, to relax with friends or unwind in solitude. The Farmers Market at IX Art Park, which is just a few minutes’ walk from the Downtown Mall, is one of the many markets in the city. Other markets include the Charlottesville City Market and Farmers in the Park. As a first-timer this past Saturday, I was surprised to see the abundance and variety of vendors. Not only is the market a great way to eat delicious locally sourced foods and buy from local businesses, but it is also a way to give back to the Charlottesville community.

All three desserts are equally as refreshing for the last of this summer heat, and they can be enjoyed within the comfort of your home using the recipes below.

As the weather gets nicer, more people are inclined to hang outside with friends and family. This being said, picnics are a great way to gather outside in a socially distant manner. Ever since this spring season has started, I found myself studying and eating outside a lot more just to get out my house and soak in some vitamin D.
One of my favorite quick meals to eat and something that I crave every so often is instant Korean ramyun (라면) — sometimes known as ramyun. Although it might not be the healthiest option, there is something so comforting about eating a bowl of hot soup and noodles. Not only are there a variety of ramyuns to choose from at very low costs, but there are also different toppings you can add to spice it up and take the flavor up to the next level.

As many of us prepare to return to the University this spring, COVID-19 health regulations are still in place and should be taken seriously to help prevent further spread.

Furthermore, this allows more time to safely celebrate the holidays with loved ones and friends.
With limited dine-in options available across the nation, many people are currently opting to get their food delivered to them. With your typical delivery service, such as Uber Eats or Grubhub, there is convenience, but every order from Good Uncle — a food truck that delivers ready-to-eat meals made from their own chefs — offers both convenience and a diverse array of dishes at several pre-established drop points around Charlottesville.

While endlessly scrolling through TikTok, I found a video where the user Mia Challiner ate like Kendall Jenner for 24 hours. After watching the video, I thought it would be fun to experiment and write about what it’s like to eat like a celebrity for a day.
As we all know, COVID-19 has changed the lifestyles of hundreds of millions. Due to increasing regulations, schools across America closed early, which in turn has resulted in the cancellation of many in-person graduation ceremonies. The University is no exception. For many of our graduating fourth year students, this pandemic means no graduation parties, pictures and celebrations with friends or Final Exercises on the Lawn until at least October. However, there are still many ways for fourth years to make the most out of their virtual graduations.
