I Heart French Fries

Seriously they're better than everything else, ever.

French fries are better than pizza rolls, ice cream and gogurt. French fries might not be better than dogs but I'd argue they're probably better than turtles. They're better than a lot of people some times. Here's why.

1. French Fries are a warm food

There is something about eating warm food after a football game, a concert or event where everything starts to feel right with the world. The chewing process is satisfying and sitting with something toasty in your tummy leaves the whole experience pleasant and memorable, comfortable and filled with thankfulness.

2. They can be eaten cold and still be okay

Everyone loves the fries they find at the bottom of the bag, even if they're several hours old and basically the temperature of a potato at the store.

3. Their salt is appreciated

Sometimes, we interact with people who have a little too much salt for the daily life and average interactions. French fries, on the other hand, have a good amount of salt on them and it's okay! Even if there is too much salt, on a potato that's okay, it just means you'll need some more sodapop afterwords. With people it's uncomfortable and leaves a bad taste in your mouth, but the potatoes make the salt okay.

4. Carbs

I. Love. Carbs. Pasta, donuts and all the potatoes. Seriously, carbs make us happy because they might be related to serotonin levels, and I'm not about to look that gift horse in the mouth.

5. Shareable

A good date? Let's go out and share a bucket of french fries; you'll get me to open up better than if we're out for something fancy, neither of us have to worry about eating too much because it's practically impossible to measure fry intake. Or, if you're a broke college or high school student it can be the cheapest option for money spent versus food available for intake when shared several ways.

6. Not necessary to share them to enjoy

If I order a side of fries, it it not at all implied that I will share them with anyone. I probably won't, to be honest. No one will judge me for this either, it's totally acceptable to eat a large order of fries on your own.

7. Fries are always available

Any restaurant you go to will have french fries of some kind. Maybe it's tater tots, maybe it's "frites," but i can guarantee that any where you go, be it McDonald's or the fanciest of the fancy in New York City, there are fried potatoes to be had there.

8. You can change them, but the original can't be beaten

I would never knock a sweet potato fry, or a crack fry from Hop Cat (highly recommended), or any other type of variation of the classic fry. I love to experiment with flavors-- ask me my favorite breakfast sandwich sometime-- but as much as those things are good, the french fries themselves don't need to be altered. They are still wonderful as plain Janes.

To conclude: Fries> most things. Eat all the fries.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.
