Spongebob Squarepants: A Surprisingly Realistic Cartoon

This classic childhood cartoon, for those of my generation, "Spongebob Squarepants" will always be close to our hearts. While it is a show of complete fiction and talking animals in a town called Bikini Bottom, and now that we are older we laugh at that name, is impossible in the real world, "Spongebob Squarepants" almost perfectly depicts various aspects of life, specifically through its three main characters.

First let’s take a look at Spongebob Squarepants:

The namesake of the show, he is an energetic, hardworking, and incredibly optimistic yellow sponge, even if he isn’t the smartest one around…We all know people like this; those that are willing to see things in only the lightest ways, work the hardest (even if they have a crappy job like at the Krusty Krab), and have a passion for life, even if they are in their own silly little world.

“If I were to die right now in a fiery explosion due to the carelessness of a friend…then that would just be alright.”

“Run Mr. Krabs! Run like you’re not in a coma!”

“It’s not just any boulder, it’s a rock!”

“Isn’t this great Squidward? Just you and me together for hours and hours and hours! And then the sun’ll come up, and it’ll be tomorrow, and we’ll still be working! It’ll be just like a sleepover! Only we’ll be sweaty and covered with grease!”

“Look at me, I’m swabbing the bathroom… at night! OW I burnt my hand!... at night!”

Secondly, there is Spongebob’s best friend, Patrick Star:

Also the town idiot, you can’t help but absolutely love him. We all know someone like him! While he isn’t intelligent, he is always there for his yellow friend.

“Well it may be stupid, but it’s also dumb.”

“I wumbo, you wumbo, he she me wumbo. Wumboing, Wumbology, the study of wumbo! It’s first grade, Spongebob.”

“Can you give Spongebob his brain back? I had to borrow it for the week.”

“Dumb people are always blissfully unaware of how dumb they really are.”

“Is mayonnaise an instrument?”

“You’re a man now Spongebob, and it’s time you started acting like one.”

“Don’t genius live in lamps?”

And lastly, to complete the weird friend-trio, there is Squidward Tentacles:

He hates work, complains constantly, is incredibly lazy, and can’t stand Spongebob and Patrick (deep down he has to love them, though). Some may call him pessimistic, but he also sounds like a ton of people I know…

“I hate all of you.”

Spongebob: “What’s better than serving up smiles?”

Squidward: “Being dead or anything else.”

“Too bad Spongebob isn’t here to enjoy Spongebob not being here.”

“Too bad that didn’t kill me…”

“Oh! I didn’t realize it was happy, hopping moron day!”

“How did I ever get surrounded by such loser neighbors?”

“I order the food, you cook the food, the customer gets the food. We do that for forty years then we die.”

In our patriarchal society, men hide from their feelings, but toxic masculinity is literally killing men. They swallow the pain and move on so that they can look, feel, and act "tough."

But, strength is derived from asking for help and voicing your struggle and, trust me, working on your mental health is one hell of a struggle. The real way to "man up" is to acknowledge the downfalls in unjust societal norms. Mental health problems do not mean that a man is weak, they are neurologically-based disorders that require professional treatment.

Sorry, But 'I Don’t Care About Politics' Is Not A Valid Excuse For NOT Voting

The younger generation of voters is so crucial to the upcoming election because our vote is going to shape the world that we are about to enter as adults.

39645

When I ask my friends if they are voting this term most of them respond with "no" followed by an explanation of "I don't care enough," "It doesn't affect me," or "I don't keep up with politics," etc. I get it, as a college student I know that there are many other things to be concerned about like school, relationships, work, and friends. I also understand that keeping up with politics can seem like trying to keep up with an over-exaggerated reality show that has way too many seasons. Not to mention most news stations and websites are biased so it's hard to decipher if what you hear is true or fake.

However, despite all of this annoyance, as the next generation of Americans, we have to remember that we owe it to ourselves, our families, and to our futures to care.

Two of my favorite things in life are reading and books. Obviously, they go hand-in-hand. In my life, I've realized that there is nothing better than learning about the current world or getting fully immersed in another world. Reading can inspire, teach, and entertain you.

For me, the feeling of opening a book and smelling that fresh book smell can't compete with anything else.

20 Books About Latin And Hispanic Heritage Absolutely Everyone Should Have On Their Bookshelf

Any ally of the community needs to be reading these incredible reads.

I go through phases when it comes to what I like to read. I am typically reading two books at any given time: one serious nonfiction and one escapist fiction novel to have on hand and open up depending on my mood.

What remains consistent, however, amongst most of my fellow bibliophiles is a desire to try new and different authors and genres. I, as an Indian woman, have been partial to reading books written by fellow Indian and Desi writers since I first got a library card.

I Asked 46 Women What They Thought About The Term 'Plus-Size', And Here's What They Had To Say

It's 2020, where change is inevitable and norms are not only questioned, but challenged.

We live in a world where it's become customary to push boundaries, break rules, and question standards upheld by society. Though try as we might, some of these standards are harder to conquer than others — body image is one of the top contenders.

For years, the body positivity movement has pushed for the acceptance of all marginalized body types not represented or celebrated in the media. Recently, we've gotten better at appreciating and accepting all body types, but one thing that's still lingering is the stigma of body image in the fashion industry — more specifically, the term "plus-size."

Throughout quarantine, something that a lot of us picked up on was working out. With all the free time, it seemed like the perfect opportunity to work on that "dream bod" you've been wanting for years, or to just feel good about yourself.

A common way to stay motivated and keep yourself on-task is to follow fitness influencers on various platforms. For some people, yes, this can be a healthy and helpful way to keep your drive. In other cases, however, this can do more harm than good.
