Fortnite: The Mangokid Review

With all of the current survival arena games in the market, it starts to get difficult to really know what games are actually worthwhile. One of the popular games right now, fortnite, has received stellar reviews across the board from a wide variety of qualified sources so the obvious next step would be the rating of my completely unqualified but very meme educated friend, for the sake of anonymity will be referred to as Mangokid. Very official, I know.

Here’s the shortlist of things she’s got to say about it.

1. Building shit is hard as f*ck

“As someone who hasn’t played basically any video games in the last two years, this was a mistake. The controls are hard to get used to and feel like trying to cook without knowing how to hold a knife, but maybe that's just me. Once you get 'em down, it’s alright tho.”

2. Streamers make this shit look easy. It’s not

“I’ve watched more Lets Plays than I’d like to say I have and, even though they’re 90% memes they’re let’s plays of guys making the game look simple WHEN IT'S NOT. You’ve got people making Pyramids for the hell of it and even playing without weapons and somehow getting first FREAKING place (Muselk we’re looking at you. Props.). This game is fun if you know how to play but ITS HARD."

3. Getting in top 20 is cake if you’re not dumb

“You could literally have no weapons and just hide for like 10 minutes and suddenly end up in the top 20. Like it’s impressive how easy it is to do literally nothing and place basically in the top 20 every time. Just land somewhere without other people and don’t be dumb. There ya go. You won’t win, but you’ll feel like ya did.”

4. Strategy means nothing if you suck

“Strategy. It’s literally everything but also it's completely pointless. You can hide or be hyper-aggressive but at the end of the day if you’re not good, it doesn’t matter. Pick a solid tactic and stick to it. Forget that’s on the fly garbage, be consistent and don’t die.”

5. Don’t overestimate yourself, you’re worse than you think you are

“No matter how good you think you are - stop. Unless if you consistently place in the top 10, then keep yourself in check boi. Always assume you suck and that everyone around you is a god. It’s that simple. If you always overestimate, you’ll probably maybe not die. Play smart, not cocky. Don’t be dumb.”

Six Lies Fed to Your Mind, By Your Mind.

These thoughts will drive you mad.


Life is hard, and is even harder with a mental illness. Even if you aren't clinically diagnosed with depression or anxiety, in the hardest times of your life you can probably associate with several of these thoughts. Fear not, everyone else is thinking them too. Maybe we just need a big, loving, group therapy session (or six).

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.
