A Thank You Letter To Ben and Jerry's

A Thank You Letter To Ben and Jerry's

You deserve a thank you for all that you do.

Dear Ben and Jerry’s,

There have been many nights when I head to my freezer and grab some ice cream. There is something so special about your ice cream, though. For some reason, I feel like Ben and Jerry’s has a somewhat magical effect, where I just know everything will be alright. That whatever I may be stressed or upset about will soon pass. Or your ice cream opens people up to each other creating amazing moments. The familiar feeling of a cup, cone, or pint of your ice cream in hand doesn’t fail to make me happy. Your ice cream is not only silky smooth, but also has the best and biggest chunks inside which makes it oh so delicious.

Your ice cream has gotten me through my hardest tests. When I was freaking out, thinking I was going to fail, my roommate showed up with Brownie Batter Core and everything was okay again. It was just what I needed to refocus on my studies, which paid off pretty well, I got an A.

I have seen your ice cream work wonders for those going through breakups. A good movie and a pint of Phish Food helped out a friend, and I swear the next day she bounced back like I have never seen before.

Your ice cream brings back memories. Sitting in my dorm room enjoying Chocolate Chip Cookie Dough, I think of when I enjoyed it with my brothers and cousins on our family vacation. How we laughed as we licked our delicious cones. Thinking of the memories that have been made over ice cream make me smile even in the midst of midterm stress.

Dairy free ice cream has been a lifesaver for some. I know a few of my lactose free friends went absolutely crazy at the idea that they could once again enjoy their favorite flavors. Especially my cousin, who sent me endless snapchats when she was able to enjoy dairy free Chunky Monkey.

Your ice cream brings people together. My first semester of college my roommate and I bought four pints of Half Baked at our campus convenience store and went downstairs to share with some of our new friends. That night is a treasured memory for me. It was the first time I really realized how special of a “power” ice cream can have.

It is funny to think that something so simple can mean so much. Somehow, you have created this. Ice cream brings people together, it mends broken hearts, it calms people down, and it is also enjoyed and appreciated for the awesome treat that it is.

On behalf of ice cream lovers everywhere, thank you.

Also, free samples and coupons are always loved.

From your loyal fan,

8 Reasons Girls Who Love Tequila Are Better

Because if she can handle tequila, she can handle you too.

There are all kinds of alcohol stereotypes out there but the one associated with tequila is probably the worst: tequila makes you crazy. But if there's one thing we can all agree on, it's that women who drink tequila are one-of-a-kind.

Whether it's loving or fighting, you'll never find anyone who does it better than a girl who just straight up loves tequila, and here are a few reasons why that is.

1. She's independent

A girl who drinks tequila is probably the same girl who has absolutely no problem telling it like it is. She knows what she wants and goes after it.

2. She doesn't care what you or anyone else thinks

Oh, you have a problem with me taking shots and having a good time? Well, get over it! Bartender, a shot with salt and a lime please!

3. Always dancing

Tequila is an 'upper' so instead of sitting at the bar doing nothing, let's dance! Let's get moving!

4. There is never a dull moment

Speaking of dancing, a girl who drinks tequila is always down for a good time. Whether it's going on an adventure or seeing who can take the most shots, a tequila girl is always down to party.

5. While everyone else is starting to get sleepy, she has all the energy

Like I said, tequila is an 'upper' so while the other girls at the bar are starting to feel groggy and sad, she's all over the place having fun and partying on the dancefloor.

6. She's stronger than the girl crying over a vodka cranberry at the bar.

Sad over a breakup? Don't go for the vodka... Tequila will make you feel better in no time! Plus you can challenge the hot guys at the bar to a shot taking contest.

7. Tequila is healthy for you

Tequila is a probiotic, so some tequila a day keeps the doctor away. Yay for shots!

8. She can hold her own when it comes to alcohol

Any girl who can shoot some shots at the bar all day and night can handle alcohol, which means she can handle herself too. You won't have to deal with her constant breakdowns and mood swings because she will be too busy ordering more shots.

10 Reasons To Start Vaping In 2019 If You Haven't Yet

"It's safer than cigarettes"


Vaping is the rage these days among adolescents and college students. Here are some great reasons to start!

1. It's what all the cool kids do


I wish that I could be like the cool kids

2. It damages your lungs


It's not like you need these to breathe or anything

3. It pollutes the air


Let's pollute the air even more!

4. Nicotine addiction

Just the thing I want to be addicted to

5. "Delicious" flavors


Would you prefer mango flavor or the cancer flavor?

6. The Juul looks like a USB


Your parents won't suspect a thing

7. Inhale metals like nickel and lead


Yummmmmm. Lead poisoning isn't a thing.

8. More likely to get infections


9. You'll eventually want cigarettes


And you'll make your lungs worse

10. Lung and mouth cancer


Who doesn't want cancer

In case you couldn't tell, this was very sarcastic. If you want all of these things, then go ahead, start vaping. But you should know what you're getting yourself into and be prepared for the consequences.

If you already vape, I mean no disrespect and I'm not trying to hate on you, but you should seriously stop. Whatever you think is a good reason for vaping really is not a good enough reason to damage your body.

Stop vaping. And if you don't vape, don't start. Just don't.
