When my college roommate came to visit from Jersey last winter, my best friend from home struck her with a indelible first impression that we still laugh about to this day. She said, "Welcome to Connecticut where the the taxes are high and there's nothing to do." We all got a kick out of her playful wit, but also came to the sad realization that much, but not all, of her statement was true. Yes, Connecticut is one of the top three states in the U.S. with the highest taxes. And yes, getting snowed in for four months like this past winter is enough to make one contemplate moving cross country. However, what a lot of us locals tend to take for granted is all that a quiet, home bound state like ours has to offer. We might not have a city that never sleeps, or a city of eternal sunshine, but we do have beautifully small towns with ages of history behind them, and undeniably breathtaking views across every mountain you pass. Dine with dinner and a view at one of these twelve beautiful venues:


1. L'Escale, Greenwich


2. Millwright's Restaurant & Tavern, Simsbury


3. Fresh Salt, Old Saybrook


4. Red 36, Mystic


5. Rooftop 120, Glastonbury


6. L'Orcio, New Haven


7. Crab Shell, Stamford


8. Abbott's Lobster in the Rough, Noank


9. Oyster Club, Mystic


10. Stonebridge Restaurant, Milford


11. Outriggers, Stratford


12. Restaurant 121, Oxford

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do

I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs

It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
