Why New Jersey Will Always Be BAE

A summation of why New Jersey is the best state in the union.

107

New Jersey often gets bad rap from people from other states, but if you're lucky enough to live there, you know how great New Jersey really is, and here's why:

1. We have the most amazing bagels (shout out to O'Bagel).

2. We have the best pizza (tied with New York).

3. We have Taylor Ham (or "pork roll" if you're some kind of savage).

4. We have 130 miles of beautiful beaches from Sandy Hook to Cape May.

5. We're an hour from New York City.

6. We're an hour from Philly.

7. So basically we have the best of both worlds. Hollllaaa.

8. We're nothing like the cast of Jersey Shore.

9. We're stronger than Sandy.

10. There's nothing like Jersey tomatoes or corn. Yum!

11. We're the birthplace of Meryl Streep.

12. And Derek Jeter.

13. And Joe Pesci.

14. And Chelsea Handler.

15. And Laura Prepon (she also went to my high school ... NBD).

16. No other state can drive like us (especially you, Pennsylvania and New York)!

17. We never have to pump our gas.

18. There are no shopping malls like New Jersey malls.

19. No one pronounces Jersey like "Joisey."

20. Diners. Diners. Diners.

21. Whether or not Central Jersey exists ... (It does).

22. The stereotype map being completely accurate.

23. We're tough, especially when we're home to one of the most dangerous cities — Camden!

24. We're home to the Giants, Jets and Devils.

25. We have our Devil.

26. Hoboken is basically the more affordable cousin of Manhattan.

27. We have great night life, from Jersey City to Seaside Heights.

28. Not only do we have beaches, but we also have mountains to ski on.

29. There's nothing quite like the NYC skyline from across the Hudson River.

30. Monopoly was created here, and who doesn't love a game of Monopoly (until a fight breaks out).

31. We have our own version of Las Vegas: Atlantic City.

32. No one can rival our sarcasm and attitude.

33. Summer concerts at PNC Banks Arts Center.

34. No other state will have as much pride as us.

35. No matter where you live, New Jersey will always be home.

In case you needed a few (or more) reasons to love New Jersey, now you've got them. Let's face it: there's no place like New Jersey and no bagel like a Jersey one.

I was never really big on cocktails. Tequila soda is always a go-to drink for me because of its simplicity and, to be honest, lack of extra calories from mixers chock-full of sugar, chemicals, and other unknown ingredients. I like tequila, and like to be able to really savor it.

This all changed when, a couple of years ago, a friend of mine made me a margarita from scratch — no funky mixers involved — and it tasted incredible. It was light, refreshing, and complemented the tequila without overpowering it.

I was blessed with thick, full hair up until my late teens. At the time, I cursed my hairiness — this was before full eyebrows became trendy or cool, and were instead a point of bullying many of my fellow full-browed teens can relate to.

Later in my 20s, hormonal stability was something I was thankful for, though a major side effect ended up being hair loss — on my head, lashes, and brows. I now find my filling in my brows on an almost daily basis. As much as I enjoy toying with and testing out different brow-filling products, it'll never be quite the same as being able to have "I woke up like this" full, Gigi Hadid-esque brows.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).
