We're no stranger to snow, but we still love to complain about it.

10 Reactions Michiganders Have When Winter Shows Up

Winter is the death of us all.

The beautiful fall leaves are gone, and its time to whip out the winter jackets and gloves. With the coming of snow comes many different emotions and reactions but there's nothing we can do to keep the snow from coming.

If you're from Michigan, you can relate to these reactions with the winter months approaching:

1. "Where's my vacation home in Florida?"

Because snow isn't any fun unless you're five years old again. There isn't anything fun about driving in the snow, falling in the snow, or just being cold in general.

2. Saying prayers for those traveling in the snow.

The only thing on people's mind when you get into your vehicle is, "please let me get there alive." This video is of the 150 car pile up from January of last year, which I was reminded after the 30-40 pile up on I-75 the other day. Stay safe.

3. F*ck yeah! No mosquitoes!

Because that's literally the only thing great about winter.

4. Cringing when you look out the window in the morning before having to go to work.

5. Trying to find all the layers you possibly can before you leave the house.

6. When you take the first step outside.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F636170371613861650-1169417024_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=770&h=c6de568a9e8b957aa4cea4cc653a7ccb17d01e5e750874cb8e5e6ee3bb4e8ecd&size=980x&c=3227210613 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F636170371613861650-1169417024_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D770%26h%3Dc6de568a9e8b957aa4cea4cc653a7ccb17d01e5e750874cb8e5e6ee3bb4e8ecd%26size%3D980x%26c%3D3227210613%22%7D" expand=1]

FML FML FML FML FML FML. I got snow in my shoe.

7. When there's 7 feet of snow and they still won't cancel class.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F6361703727050335011495440115_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=701&h=9215d9e882a2c31203498ae695a0e4779f738fc088ce02dd2c6b13791938dd22&size=980x&c=1504834152 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F6361703727050335011495440115_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D701%26h%3D9215d9e882a2c31203498ae695a0e4779f738fc088ce02dd2c6b13791938dd22%26size%3D980x%26c%3D1504834152%22%7D" expand=1]

I might die on my way to class but that's okay because at least I'll be educated when it happens!

8. When you only have to go outside for a little bit so you don't wear a coat.

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F636170379031788046-606365948_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=616&h=8c44a5d5c953fcc9c3e6be26ecb189d2d94e2f723ba4c1d7badbc874366620a4&size=980x&c=2942249995 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F636170379031788046-606365948_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D616%26h%3D8c44a5d5c953fcc9c3e6be26ecb189d2d94e2f723ba4c1d7badbc874366620a4%26size%3D980x%26c%3D2942249995%22%7D" expand=1]

9. "Can you shovel the driveway?"

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F636170379965189555-349542975_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=836&h=53ce550ea7b6795db329c68f811ad491b757c4ad0b3b81b569f305d310a8e9f0&size=980x&c=773508284 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F636170379965189555-349542975_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D836%26h%3D53ce550ea7b6795db329c68f811ad491b757c4ad0b3b81b569f305d310a8e9f0%26size%3D980x%26c%3D773508284%22%7D" expand=1]

10. But most of all, you try to tell yourself...

[rebelmouse-proxy-image https://media.rbl.ms/image?u=%2Ffiles%2F2016%2F12%2F11%2F6361703813021370711738275614_giphy.gif&ho=https%3A%2F%2Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net&s=726&h=b17a56e814888eff2f5a1ece84518c70936ff266e89b27bb0f5dfc28a53f6f47&size=980x&c=930315248 crop_info="%7B%22image%22%3A%20%22https%3A//media.rbl.ms/image%3Fu%3D%252Ffiles%252F2016%252F12%252F11%252F6361703813021370711738275614_giphy.gif%26ho%3Dhttps%253A%252F%252Faz616578.vo.msecnd.net%26s%3D726%26h%3Db17a56e814888eff2f5a1ece84518c70936ff266e89b27bb0f5dfc28a53f6f47%26size%3D980x%26c%3D930315248%22%7D" expand=1]

Because no matter how cold it gets or how much snow there is outside, work and school aren't going to magically disappear. Try to make the best of it and maybe your winter won't be so miserable.

Or try to move to the Carribean...

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

Kinder Self - Eyes

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"
