13 Things All Diet Coke Lovers Know To Be True
The Swift Agency

Those of us who regularly drink Diet Coke are a special kind of breed. We are simple creatures with simple needs, and those needs can typically be satisfied with a quick run to Sonic for an ice cold Diet Coke. We try to justify our addictions. We say things like "it helps me get more done" and "I'm just a lot nicer after I've had my caffeine." And it definitely does all of those things, but without the excuses, the truth is that we really just like Diet Coke. It tastes really good and you can follow it on Twitter. Taylor Swift likes it. It's fun to look for your name on the bottle. It's honestly just better. There are not a lot of reasons why we don't need it in our lives. I mean, there's like health reasons, but it's cool. We're cool. Here are thirteen things all Diet Coke lovers know to be true:

1. Diet Pepsi is NOT the same thing and we need to put that in writing.

Please don't offer me a diet 'anything else' if I ask for the Coke kind. It's bad manners. I'll just have a water.

2. We like it best from a soda fountain in a Styrofoam cup.

Cans should be poured into a cup if at all possible. The fizz can get overwhelming at times and I am overwhelmed enough as it is.

3. It is the only thing that can cure a headache, a bad day, or an afternoon slump.

No I'm not going to exercise or eat a piece of fruit. I need REAL energy.

4. You get tired of people asking you if you're on a diet.

I understand that ordering a Diet Coke with my burger and fries seems ironic. I'm not doing it to counteract anything; it just tastes better than the regular stuff.

5. And then they try to tell you that Diet Coke is "worse for you than just regular Coke."

I know this is coming from a good place, but your propaganda won't stop us.

6. And trust me, we have tried to quit.

7. But we all have our vices.

8. And the withdrawals are SO real.


9. You automatically know when the waiter made a mistake and dared to give you regular Coke.

10. And you try not to throw a fit about it.

11. But it's hard.

12. You develop a true connection with anyone who shares the addiction.

13. Because deep down, you know the love is real.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

The Girlfriend's Guide to College

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
