Why You Need To Invest In A Dang Mini Fridge

Why You Need To Invest In A Dang Mini Fridge


Everyone believes that mini fridges are only used for college and man caves. While that may be true, here are other some reasons why you should get a mini fridge right now, no matter where you live.

1. Easy snack access

Ever wanted to grab a nice, cold beverage or maybe dive in to a delectable pudding cup? Don't worry, we have all been there-- some more than others. This is a great reason for you to get a mini fridge in your room and save your legs that long and treacherous walk to the normal sized fridge in your kitchen.

2. You don't have to share

So many times I have put my freshly bought, sugar coated snack stash in the fridge only to find in the next hour when I go to partake of this artery clogging goodness that someone has already tasted it, nibbled it, or even finished off the whole thing, thinking it was for the whole family or that it was free game. Word to the wise, if you see a snack stash and you didn't buy it, walk away slowly and don't eat it because you didn't fracking buy it! So long story short, I've had a painful experience with this. Save yourself some emotional food trauma and get a dang mini fridge.

3. It can fit literally anywhere

Okay, not literally, but you get the idea. Mini fridges are super small, hence the word mini preceding the word fridge.You can put them on your drawer, on your desk, in your closet, under you desk. You can put it almost anywhere you want and let me tell you people put these things in weird places. There is a reason I said closet. Some people really like to hide their goodies.

4. People don't get to judge your snacking habits

One of the many benefits of a mini fridge is that your roommates don't have to know anything about what you are putting inside it. They don't get to judge you for getting up at 2 in the morning to start drinking some Dr. Pepper. Save yourself the judging looks about your caffeine intake. Get the dang mini fridge! Some nights you might even wake up your housemates when you head into the kitchen to grab your snackages. Nobody likes that guy that wakes everybody up in the middle of the night. Don't be that guy. Get the dang mini fridge!

5. You get some major street cred

Never once have I thought that a guy who has a mini fridge in his room was stupid. People come into the room, see the fridge and think to themselves "I need to be friends with this guy; he's got a dang mini fridge." It's a silly thing to think that a small little fridge will make you cooler or seem more friendly, but it does every single time. So do yourself a favor and get the dang mini fridge!

5 Perks Of Having A Long-Distance Best Friend

The best kind of long-distance relationship.

Sometimes, people get annoyed when girls refer to multiple people as their "best friend," but they don't understand. We have different types of best friends. There's the going out together best friend, the see each other everyday best friend and the constant, low maintenance best friend.

While I'm lucky enough to have two out of the three at the same school as me, my "low maintenance" best friend goes to college six hours from Baton Rouge.

This type of friend is special because no matter how long you go without talking or seeing each other, you're always insanely close. Even though I miss her daily, having a long-distance best friend has its perks. Here are just a few of them...

1. Getting to see each other is a special event.

Sometimes when you see someone all the time, you take that person and their friendship for granted. When you don't get to see one of your favorite people very often, the times when you're together are truly appreciated.

2. You always have someone to give unbiased advice.

This person knows you best, but they probably don't know the people you're telling them about, so they can give you better advice than anyone else.

3. You always have someone to text and FaceTime.

While there may be hundreds of miles between you, they're also just a phone call away. You know they'll always be there for you even when they can't physically be there.

4. You can plan fun trips to visit each other.

When you can visit each other, you get to meet the people you've heard so much about and experience all the places they love. You get to have your own college experience and, sometimes, theirs, too.

5. You know they will always be a part of your life.

If you can survive going to school in different states, you've both proven that your friendship will last forever. You both care enough to make time for the other in the midst of exams, social events, and homework.

The long-distance best friend is a forever friend. While I wish I could see mine more, I wouldn't trade her for anything.

We Could Have Killed Trump With Kindness

Back in 2016 when Donald Trump was elected, we could have used kindess and guidance to steer him in the right direction.


When Trump became president our nation fell apart. In the past three years, democrats and republicans have been at each other's throats relentlessly.

Granted, these argumentive standpoints stem from a good cause but have been handled the wrong way. If the individuals against Trump had tried to teach him instead of bash him or tried to provide guidance instead of ridicule our country could be in a completely different place. we could have killed all that is hated about Trump with kindness.

Unfortunately, that is not the case for how our country has handled a controversial leader. Imagine the power our nation could hold if we came together instead of growing apart. Imagine if we had tried to educate those incompetent instead of hating and shunning. Alas, our country is basically in a civil war. Red versus blue, you versus them.

This country runs off hate. If people focus more on helping one another and educating one another over hating each other and fighting over different beliefs than this country could be in a much better state than where it is today.

The sad thing is we have all these investigations and allegations of everything that goes on around the fake news and the different new stations it turned everyone against each other. If everyone could put aside their differences and work together to come to a common understanding and a common ground we wouldn't have the harsh opposing sides and we wouldn't have all the ugly news lines for different politicians that we see every day.

If everyone works with a little bit of kindness and if everyone worked to help one another understand and educate one another it's incredible what we could accomplish. But instead we're here at each other's throat's every day and who knows if a new election will even fix the strong hatred that's torn this country apart.
