A realization

Every day, we would walk to and from school breezing past the building that was the first time true columns were used for structural support in 1000 years. 

Florence is the greatest place. SUF was the most mind-blowing experience with the most amazing people.

THE WEST IS BEST!

Seeing as freshman year is very much over, I’m calling it quits on this blog. The Best Coast won 6-4 against the Beast Coast and the Lakers won in Game 7 for the first time ever. As much as the Lakers suck, the Warriors changed their logo! YEE!

—”California Gurls” by Katy Perry (ft. Snoop Dogg)

The winner is: No one. The East had “Empire State of Mind” but these lyrics suck although the beat is catchy.

SCORE: Best Coast: 6, Beast Coast: 4.

Fast Food Chains: In-N-Out vs. Dunkin’ Doughnuts

In-N-Out

The palm trees mark the spotIt really is THAT good. Made from the freshest ingredients, never frozen, “Ordering at In-N-Out is as easy as 1, 2, 3.”

The Menu:
1. Double-double with special sauce, tomatoes, lettuce, onions if you want them, fresh french fries, and a drink.
2. Cheeseburger with special sauce, tomatoes, lettuce, onions if you want them, fresh french fries, and a drink.
3. Hamburger with special sauce, tomatoes, lettuce, onions if you want them, fresh french fries, and a drink.  YUM. Oh, the drinks include sodas, iced tea, water, lemonade, or chocolate, vanilla, strawberry (or neapolitan) milkshakes. 

Then there’s the secret menu, but you can Google that yourself.

In-N-Out is local to California but we decided to share it with Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. The goal is to keep the ingredients fresh by keeping restaurants within a day’s driving distance from the distribution center. It was founded in 1948 by the Snyder family in Irvine, CA (SoCal) and plans to remain privately owned. They are known for employee-centered policies, crossed palm trees outside the building, and “quality you can taste.”

No lies, it really is THAT good.

Dunkin’ Doughnuts 

 

Dunk’s, DD’s, Dunkin’, whatever abbrev you want to give it, it doesn’t change the fact that “America Runs on Dunkin’.” The figures of the franchise compare to those of Starbucks and the chain reportedly serves 2.7 million people per day at its 6,400 stores in the United states and 2,400 in 30 other countries. Their coffee has a distinct flavor and their doughnuts are legit. 

It was founded in Quincy, Mass in 1950 and has expanded to every state except for California, where it does not plan to expand its franchise. Their menu includes doughnuts, bagels, muchkins, breakfast and flatbread sandwiches, as well as other pastries. Then there is the diverse menu of coffee products. 

During the Weston water main break on May 1, America, I mean Boston, couldn’t run on Dunkin’ for five days. It was truly an aquapocalypse. From that disaster, the world, I mean Boston, learned how crucial Dunks is to daily life.

The winner is: In-N-Out. The iconic fast food establishment stands out as another reason why everyone’s jealous of California (not “Cali”).

 SCORE: Best Coast: 6, Beast Coast: 4.

Slang: Hella vs. Wicked

The winner is: Hella! It’s used for more than one part of speech (aka every part of speech because there’s no right or wrong way to use it) and more rappers rep it harder. 

SCORE: Best Coast: 5, Beast Coast: 3.

*NOT BIASED, BEAST COAST WILL MAKE A COMEBACK*

WICKEDPart of speech: adverb
A distinctly Boston word, “wicked” is a very distinct modifier that originated in Boston. People from other parts of Massachusetts also say this and get pissed if you try and pick it up if you’re not from Mass (or New Hampshire). 
The winner is: The Beast Coast! They can have a point now.
SCORE: Best Coast: 4, Beast Coast: 3.

SCORE: Best Coast: 4, Beast Coast: 3.

HELLAParts of speech: noun, pronoun, adjective, adverb, conjunction, interjection, object of a preposition, substitute for “yes” or “no”
Glorified by Bay Area rapper, Keak da Sneak, the hyphy movement has been sweeping the nation. Especially NorCal. “Hella” is one of the most versatile modifiers on the market thanks to Keak. It’s an instant giveaway that the person speaking is from the Yay, NorCal in general, Oregon, maybe Washington, or the rare token sensible New Yorker. 
The winner is:  Obvious.
SCORE: Best Coast: 4, Beast Coast: 2.
