10 Things You Know If You're From Sellersburg, IN

10 Things You Know If You're From Sellersburg, IN

We all graduated from good ole Silver Creek High School


1. We all went to Silver Creek from kindergarten to senior year.

Almost half of your classmates you walk across the stage with on graduation day shared those same nerves as you walked into your first day of kindergarten with as well.

2. You've been to Speed Park at least once.

Whether you walked there in P.E., or your parents took you there to play, you've swung on those swings or slid down the huge slide one way or another. And who could forget the merry go 'round that all of us should've broken at least one bone on anytime we hopped on? Or the hardest decision that caused the most fights of who was going to be the one to push us around and around?

3. From 1st grade to 6th grade, you spent your summers & falls at the Ballpark.

Either you were playing baseball, softball, football, cheering, or there to watch your brother play- you were at the ball park at least 3 times a week in the summer and fall.

4. Taco Bell or McDonald's are the hangout spots.

You can't go to either of these places without seeing someone you know. Whether it be 12pm or 3 am, you're bound to see someone.

5. You know who's vehicle is who's.

Driving down Highway 60 or Highway 31 you know half of the cars you pass whether you want to or not.

6. All of your teachers know exactly who you are.

On the first day of school each year you'e always asked "Aren't you so and so's brother/sister?" or, "Are you so and so's kid?" And believe me, your parents probably know what you got in trouble for at school before you even know what you're in trouble for.

7. Friday nights are spent at basketball or football games.

Whether you're on the court/field, cheering on the sidelines or standing in the bleachers, you know you will always have plans on a Friday night. And if you think about it, what else is there to do here anyways?

8. Brick Church road is where we go to solve all our problems.

Also known as "smoke road," we all drive this winding road (sometimes way too fast) blaring music trying to get our minds off reality. Our burnout marks stain these roads marking them as our territory.

9. Chillers swallows all of our money.

We blow all our money in the summer and fall at chillers. Slushies, cotton candy vortexes, brownie sundaes, the list goes on and on. And of course you can't go here without knowing at least one person either.

10. No matter how far we go, Sellersburg is always home.

Sellersburg will always be home no matter how far away you go to college, or move away. And Silver Creek is home too. Nothing beats the reunion we all get every year at the Silver Creek vs. Henryville basketball game every November.

This Survey Shows How Quarantine And Drinking Relate, And I Can't Say I'm Surprised

"5 o'clock somewhere" is more of a guideline now than ever.

As it stands, and my friends and I are finally 21. We're extremely excited to be able to go out to bars and "get lit" as the kids say, but due to the pandemic, all of our plans have been put on hold. We'd rather wait and go when it's safe than risk spreading the infection and hurting our loved ones. So, we've all been quarantining apart, getting on the occasional wine zoom call. This made me wonder if anyone else our age were doing the same thing.

Then, I discovered this survey: We Surveyed Millennials And Gen Z About Their Quarantine Drinking Habits — Cheers. Here are 3 things that I discovered through the survey results.

17 Things To Make You Feel GOOD This Week

Because some purchases are just necessary.

Y'all, we're struggling. You don't even have to tell me, I know. What a mess we're all in, right? This year is not going how we planned and the world has turned into one giant struggle bus. I guess you could be super philosophical about everything happening for a reason, but sometimes life is just hard.

There are plenty of ways to bring yourself out of whatever rut you're in. You could go for a run, have a snack, or read a book. Or, if you're really looking for an adrenaline rush, go shopping. This is obviously not going to solve the world's problems with one swift click of the "checkout" button, but hey, it may just give you the little boost you need today.

- Blissfully unaware that butt-care beyond squats was even something I should be considering in my self-care routine, I tried one of Bawdy Beauty's butt masks for the first time a month ago.

- I've never really given my butt a second though till I took a look at improvements that could be made with the mask — if one of the hydrating, firming, detoxifying, or brightening masks in the kit I received could either smooth out cellulite or tone my skin a bit more, I wasn't going to complain.

- Each Bawdy Beauty sheet mask comes in an individually-packaged sheet, soaked with a serum I massaged into my skin after removing said sheet. The clay butt mask comes in a convenient stick format I simply draw on to my skin and leave to set for about 10 minutes before hopping into the shower.

- I set a goal of committing myself to butt-care every day for one month. Between the regular use of sheet masks, clay masks, and their CBD Butt Balm in between, I didn't have many expectations.

- I thought the whole concept may just be a gimmick, but my butt has never looked so toned in my life, and the cellulite I had is almost completely gone. I wear one every single day when I get the chance.

I'm incredibly skeptical when it comes to marketing ploys and gimmicks in the beauty world. I'll be the first cynic to try out the latest serum on the market every influencer is raving about just to negate every grandiose claim it makes.

Friends, you don't have to be quarantined to use a personal massager, you know? Because, sure, quarantine made for a lot of extra quality time with yourself, but no matter what phase of the reopening process you're in, it's normal and actually healthy to take care of your sexual needs on your own.
