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.”

Is Meaningful Casual Sex A Paradox?

Why noncommittal sex is more complicated than we'd like to think.

4101

I lost my virginity to a graduate student from Los Angeles. We’d met at a rundown cafe whose Yelp page complained of an alleged rat infestation. His name was Ken and he was 25. What drew me to him was the peculiar way his mouth was perpetually fixed into a sideways, half-moon shape that was like a smirk but without any trace of smugness. But the two most striking parts of Ken by far were the dinner plate roundness of his face and his small, expressionless teddy bear eyes. Of the things that mattered to him, there was his best friend, a college dropout who sold computer parts in Toronto, and sex.

I'm the first to admit that I am one of THOSE people who uses their zodiac sign as a description of themselves.

I'm a Cancer, a Crab, a Moon Child. It's currently our season fellow Crabs! So without further ado, here are all of the signs that you're a Cancer.

The Blessing of Lacking Sex Appeal

To all the fellow non "it" girls out there

Lacking sex appeal is not a desirable thing. It makes you fee not ugly, but wrong. Not having charisma is not a life goal. It doesn't make you fee friendless, but isolated. Not being the "it" girl happens, and tonight (and every nigh prior to this)

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

It is truly the worst place to be

Confessions From the Single Friend of the Group

Look. If you are anything like me, complaining about being single is such a hard thing to because you are genuinely happy for your friends, but as they continue to be happy in their relationships, the ever crushing weight of being the single friends can become overwhelming. For context, my primary friend group consists of four people. We are all roommates and it is a great time here. All three of my roommates have boyfriends/girlfriends, which makes our friend group of four quickly jump to seven, and it is wonderful! I love my roommates so much and I love their S.O's, but no matter how much I love them I always get extremely jealous and sad. The sad thing is that the only part that ever truly ends up bugging me is that since I am single, they are my go-to top priorities and it has been really hard to watch myself slip from the top of their go-to's to not being their go to when they feel the weight of the world. What makes it harder is that expressing that I feel alone and unwanted makes me sound jealous and like I don't want my friends to hangout with their people. I get it. I do. But there are just days I want to be someone's first pick and I'm not.
