8 Things 'Jersey Shore' Taught You As A Kid That Are Still Super Relevant 2019

Okay, first of all, how was I allowed to watch this when it premiered ten years ago?

I was a child then and holy meatballs, my innocence ran fast away from me the first time I saw Snooki be Snooki. If you've never seen a 4'8" woman do a cartwheels and flips while wasted at a club, I highly recommend it for a good time. This show never fails to make me laugh. And I don't mean a cute, little giggle. Whenever I'm tuned into this show, I'm either laughing so hard I'm crying, or I'm laughing with my mouth wide open with absolutely no noise coming out. Yeah, that kind of laughing.

I watched this show enough times now to know the ins and outs of the Shore, from GTL time to hitting up Karma til the early morning. I didn't necessarily know what everything meant back then because my mind was still in PG mode. Still, I love this show because not only is it hilarious, but it also taught me some valuable lessons.

So, in honor of how many Jersey Shore members there were (at a given time lol because everyone knows the show improved when Deena replaced Angelina), here are 8 things I learned from watching the iconic Jersey Shore.

1. GTL is my weekly college routine

Always. Except unlike them, I like to suntan, that is when it's warm.

2. Friendship is everything

Not to mention Snooki and JWoww are still bffs and their kids are the cutest.

3. Strong work ethic is key

Snooki was planning on becoming a vet before the show, so selling shirts were just a side summer gig anyways.

4. Don't fall in love at the Jersey Shore

Ronnie and Sam definitely taught me what not to look for in a relationship.

5. Size has nothing to do with alcohol limit

It's called fun size for a reason. I wouldn't know, I'm Jenni's height but the point is, anyone can have fun...obviously.

6. DTF? Nah, sorry.

Not into guys who call themselves something like "the situation" that just sounds creepy from the start.

7.  Who not to trust (*hint hint* the M in MVP)

A pretty serious situation right now and I'm pretty sure that's what gave him the neck brace.

8. The Beach is where it's at, if you can find it

Also, it's OK to ask for directions. No question in a dull question with Snooki

If you still have not figured out what you want to cook on Thanksgiving, baked macaroni and cheese is something worth considering. It is simple, affordable, and delicious. I have had many different types of baked mac and cheese and most are dry. I do not like a dry mac and cheese, it just does not seem appealing to me. If you like the creamy cheesy essence of mac and cheese, look no further, this recipe is for you.

This Simple 7-Step DIY Face Mask Combines Safety — And Sustainability

Instead of studying like I intended on doing today, I made a face mask for some reason and thought I'd share how I did.


If you were looking for a simple way to make a mask, I am happy to share how I personally make them. I have a pretty small face in general, so I prefer having my homemade ones so they fit better. This is also a great alternative to just throwing away any clothes! Before starting, you will need to make sure you have fabric, thread, a needle, and pins; if you have a sewing machine, you obviously could use that instead of hand sewing it.
