7 Reasons Watermelons Are The Best Fruit, And If You Disagree, You're Bananas

Don't get me wrong, I love all types of fruits! However, I've always had a soft spot for watermelons. They are just so delicious, juicy, and fulfilling. Here are some of the ways that I think that this fruit is the best one of them all.

They are amazingly hydrating 


Don't have a water bottle? Just go ahead and take a big bite out of your watermelon and your thirst should go away. I mean the word water is included within the word watermelon.

Do you even lift bro?


Doesn't it suck when you work out hardcore and the next day you can't even walk properly? According to a recent study, potassium and magnesium-rich juice of the watermelon has the ability to relieve muscle soreness. This means that watermelons will help you walk normally the next day after your workout.

They're your low calorie best friend 


Did you know that watermelons have a very low-calorie count? They aren't just really good, but you can enjoy them without worrying about all the calories you take in. According to LiveScience, they're actually one of the lowest calorie fruits.

Arts and crafts is a big possibility 


Watermelons are not just for eating. They are also a good canvas for anyone who is good at carving. These fruits are a great way to express your creativity.

This fruit demonstrates color at its finest 


Watermelons are so cute because they have a unique red to them. Their base color is green, and these two colors compliment each other so well. I don't know about you, but I am a big fan of the colors it contains.

Variety is a given 


There are so many ways that you can enjoy your watermelon. There isn't just one way or the right way to eat it. For example, you can cut it by slices, cut it up in cubes, blend it, or incorporate it in juices.

Who said it was just made for eating?


If you didn't know, now you do. People tend to use watermelons as organic scrubs for their body. You can enjoy the hydration of the fruits once you apply it on.

I hope you enjoyed learning a little bit more about this majestic fruit. For some people, it is just a regular fruit, but it is my number one fruit on my grocery list.

Dear College Students, Are You Undecided?

Up until last week, I always had a major. I was an international business major, finance major, psych major on the pre-medicine track… and now (finally) I am exactly where I should have been when I started college: undecided. I think there is too much pressure as a high school student to have a designated path about what you want to study, be when you 'grow up' and essentially spend the rest of your life doing. As an 18-year-old, I really feel like I tried to pin myself down to a major so that I had a set path to follow and something to look towards. This is probably very conventional and I know tons of people at school who have their minds made up about what they want to study.

Life Is Messy

Finding who you are in your 20s

Life Is Messy

I am 25 years old and just now learning who I am. When I separated from my husband I was terrified of what would follow. I did not know who I was outside of a relationship, nor did I know how to be on my own. It was scary, and I was so lost. I spent months discovering who I was, and what I wanted to be. I am still searching as I believe we never truly know who we are even when we "grow up". I came to the realization that I had been hiding a part of myself for my entire life. Coming out was not easy, growing up in the church made it scary, and hard. I was told growing up that being anything but straight was such a sin, and that i would spent my life in hell because of it. I came out to my parents when I was 25 years old. I picked up the phone and called my mom, and uttered the words "I'm queer" through tears. I knew my parents would be supportive, but that didn't make it any easier for me to vulnerable and raw. Since then, I have slowly started being more authentic in who I am, and not hide parts of me just because of people's shitty opinions.

Alone At The Met

I survive a day alone in NYC.

It was six in the evening. I was sitting in the courtyard of a Renaissance-era Italian villa, glancing around at the statues, most notably one of a boy removing a thorn from his foot. Despite the supposedly relaxing setting, I was incredibly anxious. My phone was at less than 5 percent battery, and once it died I would be completely disconnected from my family and peers, alone in one of the largest art museums in the country.
