Sophia Christina Amoruso, the founder of Nasty Gal, is more than just a crush, she is a goal. Her sporadic behavior and her rather stark ambition are what makes her so special.

What could be better for a college student than a cheap, filling, delicious, and convenient meal? Nothing. That's why I think the Original Pancake House is the right for college students.

Paladar can be summed up in 7 words: a party any time of the day! The warm welcoming of the smiles on the employees and the speed at which they sat me down foreshadowed an awesome dining experience.
