We've had so many good times and bad times, so here are the reasons I love her and am glad to have lived with her!

1. We can talk about pretty much anything.

From cats to politics to old-school references, we can talk about anything and everything.

2. She can finesse the fridge pretty well.

One of the most skilled fridge organizers I know who can turn a nightmare into an orderly stack of containers.

3. She is truly caring.

Even if it's just asking if I'm okay or how my day was, I know Lauren truly cares about me and my well-being.

4. She always offers me food.

Just today I was sad that I didn't have any Mochi ice cream left, so she offered me one of her ice cream bars.

5. She is stronger than she knows, and makes me stronger, too.

It may sound cheesy, but we do make each other stronger by sharing our experiences and thoughts with each other.

6. We always get up to the weirdest shenanigans.

We never fail to have some weird times together, but that's a unique bond we share!

7. She always tries to include me in activities.

One time, I told her I was going to alone Labor Day weekend a few years ago, and she invited me to eat with her family (whens she didn't have to).

8. She will randomly come home with gifts.

One day in the fall, she showed up with candy corn flavored kettle corn because I had expressed that I enjoyed candy corn. Take notes, ladies and gents.

9. She knows me very well, and can recognize when I'm having a bad day.

Psychologies

If I seem down or not talkative, she will ask what happened and try to make me feel better.

10. We have a similar sense of humor.

We tend to want to make the other laugh, and enjoy the same type of jokes and pranks.

Nothing but a long listicle for the queen of listicles! I'm excited to continue our amazing friendship!

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
