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!

Why Cheerleading Is Definitely Not A Sport

And five, six, seven, eight!

If you've ever participated in cheerleading, you're all too familiar with how "easy" and "pointless" it is. After all, any activity where skirts, pom-poms, glitter and bows are utilized surely can't count as a sport, right? Let's take a look at all of the reasons why cheerleading is definitely not a sport.

1. Tumbling is effortless.

Tumbling is honestly so easy that you could do it in your sleep. It clearly doesn't take years and years of practice.

2. Stunting is not a skill.

Yeah, stunting takes zero talent whatsoever. I'm sure these cheerleaders don't spend hours every single day working on their flexibility.

3. Injuries never happen in cheerleading.

Because cheerleading is so easy, you really don't have to worry about potentially getting concussions, breaking bones or even becoming paralyzed.

4. Cheerleaders aren't athletes.

Cheerleaders have no reason to be strong, fast or flexible at all. You simply go out on the field, smile and twirl around.

5. There are no male cheerleaders, and it's only for females.

Men aren't able to tumble, stunt or jump. Having them on a cheerleading team would be nonsense.

6. Cheerleading doesn't create a sense of teamwork or bonding.

I mean, these people aren't actually best friends. It's not like they save each other's lives every time they toss someone up 15 feet into the air.

Based on these very true facts listed above, you really can't call cheerleading a sport. It just doesn't take as much hard work, patience, determination and teamwork as all of the real sports out there in the world. When will those crazy cheerleaders learn?

Confidence And Help With Your Problems Go A Long Way

It's only figured out if you can make it figured out.

No one likes to be challenged and no one likes having to face the pressure, but life is full of endeavors that will make you work. While some people have no problem with dealing with obstacles head-on, others struggle with them and refuse help when offered it to them. They tend to get lost and confused with no clear direction on how to overcome what is holding them back. Your highest self wants you to grow, change, and succeed, but that's only possible with confidence.

Most of the time, people tend to be faced with the same problem reoccurring over and over again. That results in them losing motivation and they lose sight of a potential lesson to be learned. This leads to people becoming frustrated, irritated, and depressed.

That's right: this article is another factor of depression.

What happens to those who are not confident in their challenges? They get a sense and feeling of powerlessness, like they are trapped within themselves and want to escape from reality instead of dealing with their problems head-on. More often than not, it makes them feel shameful because of all the problems that someone is dealing with.

Whether the problems one faces are drug problems, alcohol, depression, family issues, or even suicidal thoughts, there is always help available. Asking for help and recognizing you need it can make people feel ashamed and embarrassed, but sometimes they refuse to admit they need help.

That is when denial comes in and that only deepens their internal wounds even further. Sometimes, people can go too far with their reluctance of help and they believe that no one can help them. Their confidence and image of themselves eventually become so low that there is only one solution to them: ending it all.

The first step to building confidence is recognizing that you need help to begin with. By recognizing the problem right away, you are able to come out of your cycle and then can identify a way to do something about it. The cycle of depression and help refusal is something that you cannot come out of unless you help it yourself.

By getting help, your problems start to diminish and your confidence builds because now, you have advice on not only what your problem is, but ways to get out of it. People go from not being hopeful at all that they can overcome whatever it is that is holding them back, to feeling they can deal with anything. This is where the people who can overcome obstacles come into play.

These people have all the confidence and all the determination that they fear nothing. Their will to work and goals set for themselves drive them to let nothing stand in their way and will not tolerate anything less than getting a goal accomplished. If people could be more like these people, just imagine how depression can be handled today!

Maybe sometimes it's easier to run than face all the pain, but never facing the heat and getting the help will do more bad than good. After all, you need some confidence to get far in life right?
