6 Signs You're A D1 Couch Potato

It's that time of year: You've got a friend who plays on a sports team, and because you're a good, supportive friend, you've decided to attend a game. It's hot outside, you're sweaty, and you have no idea what the heck is going on out there. You wish that you did, but at the same time, you also wish you were back home on the couch.

Here are six signs that you spend more time on the couch with a snack than you do out at any kind of ball game.


1. You get more excited about the concession stand than you do about anything going on in the game.

It's okay that you didn't see that great pass. You're enjoying a really great hot dog and that's more important.

2. You find yourself splitting the sections (halves, quarters, periods, whatever) of the game into smaller increments, to make the time go faster. (Or at least seem like it is.)

Alright, it's looking like you just have to make it through four more five-minute shifts before you can get yourself another hot dog. You can do it.

3. People-watching the parents and fans is more entertaining and interesting than the game itself.

4. But on the other hand, parents that scream at their kids/other people on the field make you slightly uncomfortable.
Are they being encouraging? Are they being verbally abusive? We're not sure. Who knows.

5. When the action of the game comes even remotely close to where you're sitting or standing, you tend to back away and cover your face.
Hello..why wouldn't someone do that?! You just came out here to be a spectator. You didn't ask for an object to fly rapidly in the direction of your face.

6. You feel that the best part of the day isn't when the team you're rooting for scores, but instead when the sun moves behind a cloud and you are finally in the shade.
As if sitting on hot metal bleachers isn't enough, you're probably in direct sunlight. That glorious few minutes of cloud cover is probably the next best thing to being inside...which is where you'd rather be anyways. Go team!

TikTok Made Me Buy It: Flawless's Skincare Fridge

I bought and tested one of TikTok's popular products so you don't have to.

I spend a lot of time on TikTok and I never know whether the products I see are worth it or not, especially when I'm looking at the price. For Christmas, my aunt got me a gift card to Ulta. I didn't know what to buy. I have way too many palettes and lipsticks. I have my essentials. What else could I need? Then it hit me that I saw a lot of people these past few months showing off their skincare fridges. So, the second I thought of it I went on the Ulta app and bought it. So, here are my thoughts.

Ever since I watched "How To Lose A Guy In 10 Days," I've been a major Matthew McConaughey fan. I've seen most of his movies, and I definitely got way too excited when he finally made an Instagram! So when he announced he would be releasing a memoir titled "Greenlights," I knew I absolutely had to get my hands on this book. And so did the rest of the world, as the book began to flood social media.

Truthfully, I would much rather read a fiction book and dive into another world than read a nonfiction book - even if it is one of my favorite celebrities. But I had a feeling this book wouldn't disappoint or bore.
