23 Things The Official Strawberry Shortcake Social Media Presence Taught Me About Life

Sometimes, you can learn a lot about life from unexpected places. For me, that place was the officially licensed Strawberry Shortcake™ social media presence. The following are all real images from their Facebook page. By artfully combining pieces of stock art in slightly different configurations with vague #relatable sentiments surgically attached, I discovered a lot of important truths about the world and about myself. There are infinitely many parallels between the microcosmic society of tiny fruit-themed girls and our own. Listed below are some of the most important Strawberry Shortcake™ memes from recent history.

1. Always be open to trying new things!

2. If there's one thing that won't let you down, it's dessert!

3. It's important to set aside time out of your day to sit down, pour yourself a cup of tea, and let anxiety consume you completely.

4. Guilt is the strongest human emotion, and what disguises itself as "compassion for others" may in fact be a matter of clearing the conscience for one's own comfort.

5. A friend is a status symbol which indicates an association with you is worth having.

6. Those born into power or wealth will find prestige and prosperity, although they have done nothing to inherently gain this advantage.

7. Art is only a temporary distraction from the banality of existence, unless you immerse yourself in your art constantly.

8. When life is difficult, make it even more complicated yourself, so that at least you have something tangible to blame for your constant state of anxiety rather than dare to consider the abstract.

9. Copperplate is still a valid font.

10. Media literacy is swiftly becoming more than a convenience; it will soon be a necessity for function in a modern societal context.

11. No matter how hard you try to cleanse yourself of your sins, you will always know what wrongs you have committed and will constantly be expecting whatever karmic retribution that may come your way.

12. Change begets unpredictability. The only risk of familiarity is "monotony." It is a wager in which the stakes are high and the motivation is low.

13. Morality is relative, for even the evildoer has something to benefit from his actions.

14. As hard as you may try, you will never be prepared for everything.

15. Indecision is the tangled root of all evils, for to make a choice is to risk error, and to delay action is to deny the given opportunity.

16. There IS such a thing as too many cookies!

17. The corporate and educational Monday-Friday nine-to-five schedule has so deeply ingrained itself into the consciousness of modern society that even young individuals are taught to resent five days out of the week and celebrate the remaining two, creating an endless cycle that alternates only between hatred and dread.

18. Humans are inherently self-serving above all else, and friendship is nothing more than a mutual contract formed between two people not to actively sabotage the other for personal gain.

19. Comparing yourself to others is the only objective standard of the quality of one's life; the individual cannot exist independent of its perceivers.

20. Capitalism has you trapped in its iron-clad grip.

21. Good opportunities will often take you far from home.

22. As you watch the inexorable passage of time, you know there is no sense in fearing the inevitable future, and yet fear is the only way we know how to cope with uncertainty.

23. Blog about it!

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

When it comes to romance, in particular, people are all handling things differently and there's no "right way" of making it through, regardless of your relationship status (single, taken, married, divorced, you name it). So, some of Swoon's creators sought out to hear from various individuals on how exactly their love lives have been affected since quarantine began.

Mental health is not an easy endeavor. It's not a fad. It's not a bandwagon that you can hop on and off of whenever you want to. Your yearly dose of sadness is not depression. I'm not here to define what depression — or anxiety, or any other type of mental health issue looks like — but I will tell you what it's not.

I sometimes look back at the days when I had anorexia and think to myself what would have happened if I had taken another bite? Nowadays, I spend days dreading over my figure and wondering if the old sundresses and outfits even fit. I tell myself that they do, but I feel like reality holds a different truth.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.
