What Your Go-To Cup Or Bottle Says About You

What Your Go-To Cup Or Bottle Says About You

Are you more of a flower mug or YETI Rumbler kind of guy?

It's rare to walk the sidewalks of a college campus and not see students' hands full of some kind of drink. Whether it's water, coffee, your go-to shake, or a mug from home, the drink you decide to carry has turned into quite the identity statement. So, what does your drink say about you?

1. Contigo Water Bottle

If you have a Contigo Water Bottle, chances are that Target is your religion, call your mom about everything, and your laptop is covered with inspirational stickers. Your Pinterest board is on point and your wattle bottle often accompanies you to your weekly Dance Fitness class. You like to make good choices — a reliable and practical bottle, indeed — but you don't like anything too flashy or crazy. Also, more than likely, you've lost at least one in your lifetime because — c'mon now — they go missing ALL. THE. TIME.

2. Starbucks Cup

If your friends don't know if you actually have a left hand or if your wrist just merges right into a Starbucks cup, this one is for you. Let's not deny it, you looove the fact that the local baristas know your order by heart and that you probably have more coffee in your veins than blood. You always seem busy and stressed and you probably claim to have more homework than anyone you know, but yet you will drop anything to catch up with someone over a Cup of Joe. You love fall and probably were the type of person who cries every time something new is added to the menu. #PSLSeason

3. YETI Mug

If you own a YETI, you don't mess around. When you have a job, you get it done and your drink is still cold at the end — but then again, you'd expect nothing less. You wear a lot of flannels, but no one ever calls you out on it, because they just sort of suit you. You also refuse to refer to your drink by the content in the mug and instead ask questions like "Hey, can you pass me my YETI?" But that's understandable, if I paid over $100 for a mug, I wouldn't want to say "Hey, can you pass me the Coke I stole from the dining hall?" either.

4. Over-sized Mug from Home

If you're reading this cradling your mug of organic, herbal tea this might just be the cup for you. Even though the dish you bring to school most certainly was intended for soup, your free spirit and whimsical disposition leave people not even questioning it. However, they do beg the question why you must drink every sip with two hands. If this is your kind of mug, I would guess you love coffee shops and rainy mornings where you can stay in and listen to Indie music with your cat. Props to you for driving your drink every day without a lid... that's talent.

5. Power Shake Bottle

Now, if you own one of these you're either one of two kinds of people. You're either the kind of person who practically lives at the gym, or you're the kind of person who wishes you did. The day you bought this cup you also bought the biggest container of protein powder and followed a dozen fitness accounts on Instagram. Carrying around this cup makes you feel fitter and you love to make smoothies out of everything. Whether you actually go to the gym or not, you're a dedicated person with high goals for yourself. You like being independent, but also love talking to people who share similar interests. You also have no idea why those balls are in all of these cups...no one does.

6. S'well Water Bottle

You're super trendy if you drink out of a S'well water bottle. As soon as these started popping up around campus, you hopped on your computer and probably spent way too long picking out what design to choose. You like quality and don't like putting a little more forth for a better return. You like being unique, but always express it in the most common way possible. More than likely, you love spending time on your phone, which makes it super embarrassing when you drop the bottle in class, the sound of a gong rings throughout, and everyone turns to see you equally as stunned.

7. Red Solo Cup

If you're walking around campus with one of these in your hand, you're at the point where you just don't care anymore. You probably never give much thought about others' opinions and prefer to march to the beat of your own drum — which makes people love you and find you irresistibly funny. Whether you just didn't have any more clean dishes or you woke up from a Thursday night you regret, some sort of unfortunate event had to happen for you to think this was a good idea. But hey, it's college!

50 Quotes from the Best Vines

If you're picturing the vines in your head, you're doing it right

In 2017 we had to say goodbye to one of the best websites to ever roam the internet: Vine. In case you have been living under a rock since 2013, Vine was -(sad face)- a website and app that took the internet and the app store by storm in Winter 2013. It contained 6-second videos that were mostly comedy- but there were other genres including music, sports, cool tricks and different trends. Vine stars would get together and plan out a vine and film it till they got it right.

It was owned by Twitter and it was shut down because of so many reasons; the viners were leaving and making money from Youtube, there was simply no money in it and Twitter wanted us to suffer.

There's been a ton of threads on Twitter of everyone's favorite vines so I thought I'd jump in and share some of my favorites. So without further ado, here are some quotes of vines that most vine fanatics would know.

To The Person Who Feels Bad When They Mess Up Someone's Name

From Someone With a Difficult Name
644
views

Have you ever first met someone online or seen their name first in print and then in person and it's too awkward to introduce yourself again because that relationship has already been built up and you just have to walk in with your hand out and be like "Hi... (insert awkward long pause while you try one last time to decide how the person's name is said) Jay-lee?" and then I say "Jah-lay" and then you feel bad and I feel bad and then it's just kinda awkward as you apologize and I keep saying it's fine. Anyway, I bet even reading this is uncomfortable, so my point is, there's no need for that, and hopefully this makes the next encounter go a little smoother.

So, Hi, my name is Jaleh Shahbazi, and if we were to have an encounter as described above you'd probably be dreading it and fearing that I'll be offended if you get my name wrong or are not even close.

Let me put your fears to rest. I have been alive for twenty years, funnily enough I've also had my name for twenty years (imagine that) and if I've gotten through life and you are the first person in twenty years to say my name wrong then we've just witnessed a miracle folks. After about fifth grade, you kind of get used to people saying your name wrong like your teachers, your friends, and your very American grandfather who could never quite master how to say a Persian name (I know, it's sad, twenty years and my grandpa still can't say it right, boy does that make you look good).

Basically, it's ok. I am not entitled to everyone getting my name right, having it messed up kind of comes with the territory of having a difficult name, if I'm going to be upset with anybody it'd probably be my parents because, honestly, it's just unfair that my sister's names are Jasmine and Rose.

So, please don't be scared when you see or hear a difficult name and don't be afraid to ask what my name is again, I'm not offended that you didn't remember or didn't get it right, I'm touched that you're trying, and really that's all that matters.
