10 Signs You Know You're From Massachusetts
Robbie Shade

If I've learned anything from living in Massachusetts my whole life, its that no one loves their city more than we do. So here are some tell tale signs you know you're from Mass.

1. Dunkin' Donuts is your saving grace when anything is going wrong

Its Dunks, not Dunkin Donuts, and its everywhere...iced coffee all day everyday.

2. The weather changes more than your girlfriend changes her outfit

On Monday it can be 60 degrees, then on Tuesday its 26 degrees and snowing. In the morning on Wednesday its 45 degrees and pouring rain, then by noon its 75 and sunny. Welcome to Massachusetts

3. Only people from Massachusetts can cross 4 lanes on the highway in under 5 seconds flawlessly, and without using a "blinkha"

Because why would anyone use a blinker...they're for wimps

4. You take pride in being called a "masshole"

This is probably the furthest thing from an insult you can get, we love Mass, who cares what anyone else thinks.

5. Your sundays are dedicated to watching the Patriots.

Rodger that!

6. You know when you see this thing, youre home

7. You know how to pronounce Worcester, Gloucester, Haverhill, Scituate etc...

There's really nothing else to say about this. You can tell if someones not from Mass if they pronounce those wrong.

8. Your daily commute consists of driving over pothole over pothole.

Or trying to avoid them and then swerving all over the road, because why would the roads be smooth?!

9. People say you talk funny, or say they cant understand you.

But when you're talking to anyone from Mass, you can understand them perfectly because we aren't talking funny!

10. No one parks their car in Harvard yard

That's just not a thing.

11 Christmas Movies You'll Remember If You Were A 2000s Kid

Because I'm still reminiscing about simpler times.


The Christmas season is coming to an end, but it's not too late to get some last-minute movies in! Unfortunately, this year didn't look like a typical Christmas. While we can't have any big Christmas parties or family gatherings, we can still celebrate at home! Christmas is the best time for nostalgia, and we could all use some warm and fuzzy feelings as we wrap up a tough year and enter a new one that hasn't been proven any calmer, either.

As a kid who grew up in the 2000s, I can think of some of my favorite staple Christmas movies. If you're looking for recommendations or just a walk down memory lane, check out the list below.

"The Wilds" was released on Amazon Prime last month and has been gaining traction steadily since then. This series of 10 one-hour episodes tells the stories of eight girls who find themselves on a deserted island after their plane crashed while they are on their way to a resort. Unlike other survival shows, there's a bit more to the story than what first meets the eye. This show is unique in characters, storytelling methods, and plot.

If you aren't convinced yet, allow me to provide you with a list of further persuasion.
