One of the many perks of living in the Bay Area is the many bridges it has to offer. You’ve got your iconic Golden Gate Bridge, which is often used as a symbol for California and makes for some incredible photos. Then you’ve got the Bay Bridge, which is famous for its light show and also being the bridge Berkeley students often cross on their way to San Francisco on the F bus. It can be argued that these bridges are the most stable thing in the Bay right now. Despite all the protests, hot political climate and economic shifts in the area, these bridges have remained standing. We might be getting one hour of sleep every night, and our grades may be dropping, but these bridges will never drop us. We at the Clog know you’ve all been wondering which Bay Area bridge you’re most like, so we’ve decided to oblige with a quiz.

    4. I’m trying to have both, but it’s getting pretty hard.
    1. Richmond-San Rafael Bridge! Just like this bridge, you’re underratedly awesome. You’re reliable, and get the job done. You often wish you received more attention, but you’ve helped a lot of people in the past, and they appreciate it.
    2. Golden Gate Bridge! You’re bold, beautiful and unforgettable. People see all this on the outside, but you do face your own problems underneath the surface. Your life isn’t as stable as it may seem, but don’t forget how cool and iconic you truly are.  
    3. Bay Bridge! You light up everyone’s days and nights with your big personality. You’re smart, reliable and memorable. You often feel overworked and tired, but you work hard and always make it through.  
    4. San Mateo Bridge! Just like how this bridge is the longest bridge in California, you’re constantly setting records for doing the most. You’re always taking a ton of classes, are in multiple clubs and try to always stay active. Sometimes it gets overwhelming, but it’ll pay off soon enough.
