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!

College As Told By Junie B. Jones

A tribute to the beloved author Barbara Parks.

The Junie B. Jones series was a big part of my childhood. They were the first chapter books I ever read. On car trips, my mother would entertain my sister and me by purchasing a new Junie B. Jones book and reading it to us. My favorite part about the books then, and still, are how funny they are. Junie B. takes things very literally, and her (mis)adventures are hilarious. A lot of children's authors tend to write for children and parents in their books to keep the attention of both parties. Barbara Park, the author of the Junie B. Jones series, did just that. This is why many things Junie B. said in Kindergarten could be applied to her experiences in college, as shown here.

When Junie B. introduces herself hundreds of times during orientation week:

“My name is Junie B. Jones. The B stands for Beatrice. Except I don't like Beatrice. I just like B and that's all." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 1)

When she goes to her first college career fair:

"Yeah, only guess what? I never even heard of that dumb word careers before. And so I won't know what the heck we're talking about." (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 2)

When she thinks people in class are gossiping about her:

“They whispered to each other for a real long time. Also, they kept looking at me. And they wouldn't even stop." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When someone asks her about the library:

“It's where the books are. And guess what? Books are my very favorite things in the whole world!" (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 27)

When she doesn't know what she's eating at the caf:

“I peeked inside the bread. I stared and stared for a real long time. 'Cause I didn't actually recognize the meat, that's why. Finally, I ate it anyway. It was tasty...whatever it was." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 66)

When she gets bored during class:

“I drew a sausage patty on my arm. Only that wasn't even an assignment." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 18)

When she considers dropping out:

“Maybe someday I will just be the Boss of Cookies instead!" (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 76)

When her friends invite her to the lake for Labor Day:

“GOOD NEWS! I CAN COME TO THE LAKE WITH YOU, I BELIEVE!" (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 17)

When her professor never enters grades on time:

“I rolled my eyes way up to the sky." (Junie B., First Grader Boss of Lunch, p. 38)

When her friends won't stop poking her on Facebook:

“Do not poke me one more time, and I mean it." (Junie B. Jones Smells Something Fishy, p. 7)

When she finds out she got a bad test grade:

“Then my eyes got a little bit wet. I wasn't crying, though." (Junie B. Jones and the Stupid Smelly Bus, p. 17)

When she isn't allowed to have a pet on campus but really wants one:


When she has to walk across campus in the dark:

“There's no such thing as monsters. There's no such thing as monsters." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 12)

When her boyfriend breaks her heart:

“I am a bachelorette. A bachelorette is when your boyfriend named Ricardo dumps you at recess. Only I wasn't actually expecting that terrible trouble." (Junie B. Jones Is (almost) a Flower Girl, p. 1)

When she paints her first canvas:

"And painting is the funnest thing I love!" (Junie B. Jones and her Big Fat Mouth, p. 61)

When her sorority takes stacked pictures:

“The biggie kids stand in the back. And the shortie kids stand in the front. I am a shortie kid. Only that is nothing to be ashamed of." (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed, p. 7)

When she's had enough of the caf's food:

“Want to bake a lemon pie? A lemon pie would be fun, don't you think?" (Junie B. Jones Has a Monster Under Her Bed p. 34)

When she forgets about an exam:

“Speechless is when your mouth can't speech." (Junie B. Jones Loves Handsome Warren, p. 54)

When she finds out she has enough credits to graduate:

When she gets home from college:

"IT'S ME! IT'S JUNIE B. JONES! I'M HOME FROM MY SCHOOL!" (Junie B. Jones and some Sneaky Peaky Spying p. 20)
