27 Reasons to Eat Ice Cream

27 Reasons to Eat Ice Cream

I can't think of any reasons not to

There is usually, noting a few rogue exceptions, a general consensus amongst people that ice cream is one of the best treats in the dessert game. Many people tend to only use this delectable snack to celebrate a particular occasion, or to praise a job well done, in order to avoid overindulging in the special treat. I, on the other hand, have yet to find an inappropriate time to eat ice cream. It has always been a guilty pleasure of mine, so every time the opportunity to eat ice cream presents itself to me, I lack the self-control needed to refrain from eating the creamy snack. I even go out of my way to find excuses to eat ice cream. Here are 27 reasons to eat ice cream (guilt-free).

27. You're sad.

Obviously, this one is pretty self-explanatory. Nothing like ice cold creamery to numb the pain.

26. It's finals week.

No reason to cry over all of the projects you have due. Cry over ice cream, like an adult.

25. Finals week ends.

Celebratory scoop of deliciousness? Make it two.

24. You were dumped.

Calories don't count in matters of the heart.

23. You begin a new relationship.

The calories count, but it's not like you need to impress anyone now.

22. There are sprinkles.

Or any other fantastic toppings that may be lying around.

21. You need a midnight snack.

Chocolate cravings are real.

20. The ice cream is free.

Free is always better.

19. The ice cream is homemade.

Less processing, so its healthier...I think.

18. It's warm outside.

Cool down with a nice sundae.

17. You hear the ice cream bell on the beach.

It's like a church bell. May the fudgie-wudgie man be with you.

16. The ice cream is on sale.

It may not be free, but a fair discount is incentive enough to delight in an ice cream cone.

15. During the winter.

It may sound silly, but if you eat it while bundled up in a heated room you can trick yourself into thinking it's summer.

14. There is a commercial break.

Everybody knows commercial breaks are designated snack times.

13. White shirts are boring.

A nice chocolate stain looks good on virtually anyone.

12. You need more calcium in your diet.

Health comes first.

11. You went to the gym.

You have earned a hardy helping of ice cream.

10. Scooping ice cream builds arm muscle.

Why lift when you can scoop?

9. Scooping ice cream builds character.

Trying to scoop from a tub of frozen ice cream takes some serious determination.

8. You know someone is having a bad day.

Best way to make someone smile is to feed them...with ice cream.

7. It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

Every hour I am eating ice cream is happy hour.

6. Because you only eat dinner for dessert anyway.

No, I am not eating this broccoli for pleasure.

5. When you are trying to woo someone.

Do I want to go for ice cream? SWOON.

4. Because you can't have cake without ice cream.

Well you can, but why would you do that?

3. It's raining.

Eating ice cream is an activity and we all want to feel productive on a rainy day.

2. You pass an ice cream shop.

No one wants to be the outsider looking in.

1. Because you have a spoon.

Mine as well put it to good use!

Lets be real, there is never a reason NOT to eat ice cream. Someone who tells you otherwise is not someone you need in your life.

I'm A Woman And You Can't Convince Me Breastfeeding In Public Is OK In 2019

Sorry, not sorry.


Lately, I have seen so many people going off on social media about how people shouldn't be upset with mothers breastfeeding in public. You know what? I disagree.

There's a huge difference between being modest while breastfeeding and just being straight up careless, trashy and disrespectful to those around you. Why don't you try popping out a boob without a baby attached to it and see how long it takes for you to get arrested for public indecency? Strange how that works, right?

So many people talking about it bring up the point of how we shouldn't "sexualize" breastfeeding and seeing a woman's breasts while doing so. Actually, all of these people are missing the point. It's not sexual, it's just purely immodest and disrespectful.

If you see a girl in a shirt cut too low, you call her a slut. If you see a celebrity post a nude photo, you call them immodest and a terrible role model. What makes you think that pulling out a breast in the middle of public is different, regardless of what you're doing with it?

If I'm eating in a restaurant, I would be disgusted if the person at the table next to me had their bare feet out while they were eating. It's just not appropriate. Neither is pulling out your breast for the entire general public to see.

Nobody asked you to put a blanket over your kid's head to feed them. Nobody asked you to go feed them in a dirty bathroom. But you don't need to basically be topless to feed your kid. Growing up, I watched my mom feed my younger siblings in public. She never shied away from it, but the way she did it was always tasteful and never drew attention. She would cover herself up while doing it. She would make sure that nothing inappropriate could be seen. She was lowkey about it.

Mindblowing, right? Wait, you can actually breastfeed in public and not have to show everyone what you're doing? What a revolutionary idea!

There is nothing wrong with feeding your baby. It's something you need to do, it's a part of life. But there is definitely something wrong with thinking it's fine to expose yourself to the entire world while doing it. Nobody wants to see it. Nobody cares if you're feeding your kid. Nobody cares if you're trying to make some sort of weird "feminist" statement by showing them your boobs.

Cover up. Be modest. Be mindful. Be respectful. Don't want to see my boobs? Good, I don't want to see yours either. Hard to believe, I know.

Excellent Advice From Unexpected Places

Who thought aliens from a silly space app could give good advice. Welcome to Walkr.


GI recently got a pedometer app (a step tracker) called Walkr: Fitness Space Adventure. Along with tracking your steps, it unlocks planets that have little alien inhabitants. These creatures send you messages occasionally, some silly, some helpful, and everything in between. I thought I would share with you my favorites thus far. Here are my top 15 inspirational messages from aliens:

1. When you are doubting yourself...

Maddy McKeever

Zombies love you for who you are, no matter what.

2. Take care of those you love...

Maddy McKeever

No one deserves to be sad. Especially the moon who is the light of your night.

3. I love eating...

Maddy McKeever

Envy is a deadly sin, but ice cream is not. Snowmen know sometimes you need a snack.

4. There are no shortcuts in life...

Maddy McKeever

Shortcuts in life leave you shorthanded and unprepared. Be the diamond in the rough, or the pearl.

5. Eat your vegetables...

Maddy McKeever

Take care of your body and it will take care of you. And avoid space pirates.

6. Take time to take care of yourself...

Maddy McKeever

Little things for self care can make a big difference. Musical Andrew reminds you to eat and drink lots of water.

7. Walk a mile in someone else's shoes...

Maddy McKeever

Walking help you clear your head, and gives you a reason to get out of the house if you don't have a dog that wants to go to the park.

8. Where words fail, music speaks...

Maddy McKeever

Bon Jovi probably liked space. Express yourself with music, or tune out the world to take care of yourself.

9. Don't trust strangers...

Maddy McKeever

Don't take food from strangers unless it's Halloween. And don't follow them into the woods, even if they are trees.

10. School is a necessary evil...

Maddy McKeever

School may seem like torture now, but you'll be grateful you did it when you are older, even if you want to set your work on fire right now.

11. Never stop believing...

Maddy McKeever

Keep hope and imagination in your heart and you will feel young forever.

12. Sometimes it's about the journey, not the destination...

Maddy McKeever

It's not always about progress, but about the process, even if the idea of success tastes sweet.

13. Success is relative to each of us...

Maddy McKeever

Your idea of being courageous may not be the same as someone else's, but that doesn't make their any less valid a success.

14. Don't let others hold you back...

Maddy McKeever

We all want to escape to a different continent, or even a different planet sometimes. Take a moment and breathe. You've got this.

15. Don't judge a book by it's cover...

Maddy McKeever

Some people that look odd on the outside may be diamonds in the rough. But don't forget also that some people who look harmless can secretly bite.

Some of this advice may seem silly, but rooted deep in it can be found inspirational advice. You may not see it now, but when you need to hear it, that advice becomes very clear. Who knew that a ball of ghost fire or a sugar cube could give such good advice? I hope at least one of these little aliens gave you some useful inspiration today.
