17 'SpongeBob' Moments We'll Never Forget, In Honor Of Stephen Hillenburg

"Is mayonnaise an instrument?"


I remember watching the very first pilot episode of Spongebob Squarepants -- "Help Wanted." Ever since then, Spongebob and all of the other characters of Bikini Bottom have always held a special place in my heart. While completely ridiculous, all of the characters have relatable aspects, which make them that much more enjoyable to watch.

The passing of Stephen Hillenburg has me saddened -- Spongebob was not just a part of my childhood, it has been a part of my entire life. To this day, I watch Spongebob, quote Spongebob, and even dress up like Spongebob characters for Halloween.

So, Stephen Hillenburg, thank you.

Thank you for putting in the time and energy to make a show that continued on, for people of different generations to enjoy and love.

Thank you for making characters who are all so relatable.

Thank you for filling your show with puns and innuendos that I can now understand and giggle over.

Thank you for the lines that I quote on a daily basis ("The pioneers used to ride these babies for miles.").

1. When you go to the gym after not working out for a hot minute. 


2. When you are finally home from college and get some of your parents' delicious home cooked meals.


3. When you live in the south in summer. 


4. When you at least need to pretend like you care. 


5. When you finally get your monthly paycheck after living off of cereal for the past three weeks. 


6. When it is finally Christmas break.


7. When you forgot that the final exam is cumulative. 


8. When it is 3 a.m.


9. When your crush leaves you on read. 


10. When your parents are coming to visit. 


11. When people keep asking what you are doing after graduation. 


12. When someone starts man-splaining to you. 


13. When your entire friend group has personal issues. 


14. When you are the clingy one in the relationship. 


15. When you are watching Netflix and lose track of time. 


16. ...25. 


17. Jk you are beautiful, but this episode was gold. 


Stephen Hillenburg, your legacy will never be forgotten. Rest in absolute paradise.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
