Watching Spongebob episodes when I was younger at my Grandma's house was probably one of the most memorable experiences of my life so far. I remember eating breakfast at her house and sitting in front of the TV while eating cereal (My favorites include Cinnamon Toast Crunch and Cocoa Puffs) and eating chocolate chip or cinnamon pop tarts. To this day I love Spongebob and I can reference almost any episode and have a great laugh about it.

Here is why Spongebob Squarepants is still relatable while in my 20's:

1. Squidward Tentacles

He's literally the only adult in the show who takes responsibility, even when he doesn't want to be an adult.

2. Spongebob Squarepants

He's over-optimistic about everything.

3. Eugene Krabs

Mr. Krabs is super cheap and is super relatable to college students. Let's be honest we all know what Ramen noodle meal nights are like.

4. Patrick Star

We all look for that one person who is dumber than we are for a self-confidence boost.

5. Sandy Cheeks

Sandy knows too much of her science and because of this, she knows that she's a squirrel who lives underwater and goes outside her comfort zones to achieve her goals.

6. Plankton

A "friend" who discourages you and tries to steal your thunder about your accomplishments.

7. Gary the snail

We love our pets.

8. Larry the Lobster

The one friend you have some time in your life that flexes on your to try to make you jealous of something.

9. The Flying Dutchman

Another friend we have who is basically dead inside and still shows up to an event.


So I didn't do EVERY character from the show, but I did the main ones that I love. Spongebob will always be so relatable. #SpongebobForever.

For a long time, Goya has been a staple in some Latino households. People carry around jars of Adobo when they eat at friend's houses and packets of Sazón Goya can be found in almost everyone's pantry. Many BuzzFeed lists, videos, and memes aimed at Latinos reference Goya somewhere.

But in a year that just keeps hitting us with bad news, Goya Foods CEO Robert Unanue said that Trump was an "incredible builder" and that the US was "blessed" to have him as president at a White House event on Thursday.

People Are Eating Salads For Breakfast, And It's About Time

As Americans we know we all need to eat more fruits and veggies, why not do it at breakfast?

I first started seeing a dietitian in late 2017. At the time, I was the heaviest I've ever been at about 210 lbs. At the first appointment, my dietitian asked me to record what I ate in a food diary so she could better understand my habits and give me better direction in changing my lifestyle. I did exactly that and returned a week later, diary in hand. After a cursory glance at the pages, she first remarked at how few fruits and vegetables I ate. Deep down I had already known that, but what I didn't know then was that I was far from being alone in that respect. According to a Times article, about 90 percent of Americans don't consume enough fruits and vegetables to meet current dietary guidelines. It's hardly rocket science as to why that is — many of our diets consist mainly of carbs and non-planted based protein. This isn't to say that carbs and protein are the devils; they're both parts of a balanced diet. However, vegetables and fruit are also part of a balanced diet — a part that often gets neglected. So, when I see people on Instagram eating salad for breakfast, I think to myself "It's about time!"

This coffee brand is USDA organic. Newman's Own Keurig coffee flavors are all organic. They have French Roast, Decaf, and a Special Blend. I'm in a committed relationship with the French Roast flavor. The smell alone from dispensing 1 cup of coffee sets a whole cafe jazz vibe.

I'm already relaxed when I smell the coffee all ready for dressing. The way I make my coffee is simple and sweet, literally. I add a spoon of organic brown sugar and a splash of organic almond vanilla milk. This cup of coffee has changed my life forever. I have never been so productive in my life and I truly believe it's because the coffee is organic.
