6 Things You Definitely Did On Club Penguin

2016 might have taken so many of our favorite, beloved icons, but 2017 is coming for our childhoods. On January 31st, the developers of Club Penguin announced that the game we all know and love will be shutting down. Go ahead, run over to http://play.clubpenguin.com/, sign in with your "parent's email" (yeah, right) and waddle around one last time. Don't worry, we have until March 29th to check up on our inevitably dead Puffles and show up to random igloos uninvited. Here's a list of things you undoubtedly did on Club Penguin.

1. Try to tip the iceberg.

Maybe you were the ringleader that told everyone to waddle to one side of the iceberg, or maybe you were just a follower. Either way, it never tipped--no matter how many penguins drilled the ice. However, the wait is over.

Beneath the iceberg, the creators of the game left a message. It reads, "Together we can build an island, create a community, change the world--and even tip an iceberg. Waddle on." It's okay to cry.

2. Tried to get a penguin boyfriend.

Don't lie, everyone did it. You know, you'd stand in the middle of a crowded place and type, "Say 123 for a girl like me!" And as soon as a penguin came up to you, BOOM! Boyfriend. From there, you'd probably go sit awkwardly in the pizza parlor or in their igloo. Then you'd probably realize how weird this all is, and leave.

3. Start random drama.

We were all pretty petty penguins. I remember throwing snowballs at penguins for no reason, intruding uninvited into a random igloo and refusing to leave, the list goes on.

4. See how far you could push it before getting banned.

This gif speaks for itself.

5. Play the games.

I had absolutely no idea how to play Mancala. But the pizza game the cart riding game, and the coffee bean game never got old. It was also always fun to race your friends (and random stranger penguins) down the ski slopes.

6. Try and meet up with your friends.

The first battle was always picking a server to use. Alpine, Blizzard, Snow Globe, there were so many choices! Then you have to pick where to meet each other-- the coffee shop, the dojo, the ice rink. Once you sift through all of the blue penguins and finally find each other, you kinda just..do more of the same. But together, so it's better.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.


On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

... in case you needed another excuse to eat empanadas and churros.

20 Traditional Hispanic Recipes To Feast On In Honor Of Hispanic Heritage Month

Like many of my wanderlust-ridden friends and family, I'll travel anywhere for the promise of good food. I once went to Thailand in pursuit of traditional massaman curry and Spain for authentic patatas bravas — neither of which let me down.

What usually ends up being the biggest letdown is coming home to miss the traditional, local cuisine. It may not have quite the same ambiance, but trying to cook authentic dishes at home can increase appreciation for the craft and culture behind them.

This movement has recently gained a lot of momentum on their Facebook page and is currently even gaining support from tourists in Iran. Ms. Alinejad shares photos of men in hijabs and women inside Iran who have taken part in a moment of 'stealthy freedom' by removing their hijabs to the outside world.

Sinning in Las Vegas

Be careful what you do and post


Going to Las Vegas for the weekend is practically a sacramental right of passage in college. It’s so crucial to our early adulthood development that Snapchat even made a filter that says “Vegas for the Weekend.” Damn Snapchat, you really do get it.
