What Your Go-To Mario Kart Character Says About You As A Person

What Your Go-To Mario Kart Character Says About You As A Person

It’s the defining moment. You turn on your game console (if this happens to be a Nintendo 64, you get extra brownie points), put your game face on, and wave goodbye to your friends because they will be mortal enemies by the time this tournament is over. It’s Mario Kart time. More importantly, it’s time to choose your racer. Your character choice goes beyond the game. Your character choice defines who you are. Allow me to explain.

1. Princess Peach.

Don’t turn your head away from these people when they’re drunk, because they’re most likely going to be texting their ex. These people are fun, drink Barefoot wine, try their hardest to twerk, and spend hours shopping at Forever 21. They are not ashamed to tell you that they thought the Fifty Shades of Grey trilogy was amazing. They’re fun, but they’ll be the first to admit that their lives are a bit messy.

2. Mario.

The claaaasic! You’re that one person that I see on the bus every day, and then randomly see at a party that night. You kind of see these people everywhere, but they seem to be holding the same facial expressions and mannerisms everywhere. They are kinda just here for the ride with no complaints, and you can count on them wherever they are to hold some solid, enjoyable small talk.

3. Donkey Kong.

You’re that guy at the back of the class that makes a really obvious comment every once in a while to ensure your participation grade in the class. You seem really cool and collected but in reality are really banking on the claims your Axe bottle advertises telling you this scent will be a womanizer to give you some confidence. You’re nice and have a solid group of friends, but you’ll be the first to send a “you up?” text at two in the morning.

4. Yoshi.

MY PEOPLE. Yoshi people are the best. They’re not going to bug you at five in the morning to go on a jog but are down for a little adventure every once and a while. Yoshi people have it going for them, but not in an obnoxious way. Like we have a declared major, a steady job, but we’re not behavioral neuroscientists with an impressive resume that will make you feel insignificant.

5. Bowser.

Ugh. You’re hypermasculine. You probably have an obnoxiously oversized whey protein container sitting on top of your fridge. You’re an annoying meathead whose main source of news is “Barstool Sports.” I try not to play with Bowser people because I’m a little afraid they’re going to throw the remote out of frustration and break my TV.

6. Luigi.

Honestly, who doesn’t love a Luigi player? Luigi people are so accountable. You can almost always count on them being in a good mood, though they really don’t care about being the center of attention. They’re funny, but not in the showy way where they’re always cracking jokes. Every once in a while they’ll slip in a funny side comment and it’s almost always hilarious.

7. Toad.

Toad people are so damn cute, but maybe I’m only thinking of this because Toad himself is such a cutie pie. They give the best hugs and tag you in the best memes. You don't have to text them every day to ensure them that you love them. They’re always there for you, but you don’t have to constantly text and call them to ensure them you still love them. When you need them, they’re there with your favorite fast food meal and a listening ear. Thank you Toad people, you’re a loyal bunch.

8. Wario.

Goodbye. You’re so annoying. You probably wore bucket hats past when the trend of it being funny was over. You’re go-to dance move is “dabbing” and you’re that weirdo at the club who gets really drunk off of Jaegermeister. You’re that one guy who thinks it’s super cool to only eat bacon for every meal, and you make annoying, not-funny dad jokes that make everyone roll their eyes. Sorry, Wario players, I’m being harsh, but oh man, I can’t stand you.

9. Baby Mario and Baby whatever.

What the...? No. You think you’re cute and it’s annoying. You probably overuse the dog filter on Snapchat and think “The Chainsmokers” just sooo get you. Go pick a real character.

10. Koopa Troopa.

This little guy was added to Mario Kart in the Wii version. Koopa Troopa people are bound to be Yoshi players’ best friends. I don’t know much about him because he’s pretty new, but I feel like Koopa Troopa people tend to be secretly wise. Like they’ll sit back and learn from others' mistakes before making their move. I feel like most of these people are philosophy or art history majors because they just think uniquely and are going to spit some real knowledge if you let them.

14 Stages Of Buying Jonas Brothers Concert Tickets As A 20-Something In 2019

"Alexa, play "Burnin' Up" by the Jonas Brothers."

In case you missed it, the Jonas Brothers are back together and, let me tell you, they're giving us some major jams. For those of us who were there when it all began back in 2007 with their first album, It's About Time, this has been one of the most important events of the year. But nothing, and I mean nothing can rival the excitement every twenty-something felt as the Jonas Brothers announced their Happiness Begins tour. I, for one, put my name in for ticket presale, have been following every single social media site related to the tour/group, and, of course, listening to the Jonas Brothers on repeat. And if you did manage to snag tickets, then you know that this is how your brain has been ever since they announced the tour.

1. Finding out that they're going on tour

2. Hopefully entering your name into the lottery to get presale tickets

3. Finding out that you actually get to buy presale tickets

4. Impatiently waiting for your presale tickets by listening to their songs on repeat

5. And remembering how obsessed you used to be (definitely still are) with them

6. Trying to coordinate the squad to go to the concert with you

7. Waiting in the Ticketmaster waiting room...

8. ...And feeling super frantic/frustrated because there are about 2000 people in line in front of you

9. Actually getting into the site to buy the tickets

10. Frantically trying to find seats you can actually pay for because, let's be real, you're twenty-something and poor

11. Managing to actually get the seats you want

12. Joyfully letting your squad know that you've done it

13. Crying a little because all of the dreams you've had since 2007 are coming true

14. Listening to every single Jonas Brothers song on repeat (again)

If you, like me, have finally fulfilled one of your dreams since childhood, then congrats, my friend! We've made it! Honestly, of all the things I've done in my adult life, this might be the one that child me is the most proud of.

The 7 Best Food Places Near UCLA You Need to Try ASAP

We have great dining food AND restaurants around us? Wow, we are #blessed.

Westwood is the home to UCLA and offers plenty of interesting and diverse dining options for students and locals alike. Since the area is firmly Bruin territory, you will find lots of on-the-go, affordable eats along with a mix of more modern and upscale restaurants.

Though I definitely haven't had all the food Westwood occurs, being here two years now (omg already!?), I think I can safely recommend certain places to eat.

1. Shamshiri Grill

South Westwood Boulevard is often referred to as Little Tehran, so most of that area is just Persian restaurants. Shamshiri Grill just makes the best meat and whenever I go there, I always order my meal with their special hot sauce, that is to DIE for. A must try.

2. Gushi

I can not tell you how many times I've been to this place. Located near Fat Sal's, you may be tempted to just miss it but let me tell you that is a mistake. I always get their Gushi Bowl which is just heavenly and the right amount to make me feel satisfied without being too filling. Be generous with the Teriyaki and Sriracha sauces on your meat and you are guaranteed to have a good time.

3. Pinches Tacos

I know Mexican food is very common wherever you go but Pinches Tacos is aesthetically pleasing and their food? Even more so. It just tastes so good! I definitely recommend the Asada fries and any tacos.

4. Saffron and Rose

Saffron and Rose is a Persian ice cream parlor like 10 minutes away from Shamshiri Grill and the quality and variety of ice cream is truly impressive. I would not have known my weakness for Jasmine ice cream if I hadn't tried this place and as always, the Saffron and Rose (it's namesake) deserves to be the name of the restaurant because of how rich in flavor it is.

5. Maharaja

I am very particular about my Indian food but the buffets in the afternoons at Maharaja definitely passes my checklist. I actually went there for my birthday so that just tells you how the food doesn't disappoint.

6. Nekter Juice Bar

I found out about this place very recently and I'm so glad I did because their bowls are so good. They also serve smoothies which I haven't had the pleasure to taste yet but I expect the same kind of quality. I am very partial to the Bruin Bowl and the Dragonfruit Bowl.

7. BJs

They have $3 Pizookies on Tuesday.

I am always there on Tuesday.

Are these two facts connected? Maybe.

What can I say? I just love the restaurants here.
