We get it, cooking is tough.

You have to buy all kinds of ingredients, and get all manner of gadgets and tools and dishes dirty just to get a half-assed grilled cheese on the table. Plus, you're never going to be as good at it as Gordon Ramsay — so why even try?

I'll tell you why. Because you're an adult, damnit. You feed yourself now. So instead of ordering pizza again, why don't you at least try to cook something. It gets easier and there are tons of sweet gadgets that can make it a little more fun and convenient.

4. Make your own herb blends! Like a caveman!

Cooking is all about seasoning, fam. But it's boring to just have a bunch of bottles of dried up sprinkle-dust that you don't really understand. It's way better to just smash a rock against another rock — grinding up your own seasonings like a MAN. Or a woMAN.
