11 Signs You're Your Father's Daughter
Lauren Schatz

You've been told it for years, "wow, you are definitely your father's daughter!" But what exactly does that entail? Definitely puns -- LOTS of puns -- but also a lot of shared character traits, hobbies and interests!

Though it's different for every father and daughter pairing, here are some universal signs that you and your dad are, well, pretty much the same person:

1. You share the same sense of humor.

You've laughed at (or made) every lame "dad joke" in the books.

2. You catch yourself saying things he would say all the time.

"I know I've heard that before. Wait a second..."

3. You get virtually any "old" movie or TV show reference.

Someone throws their hands in the air and yells "Kahn!"? "Star Trek." Someone holds their shoe up to their ear? "Get Smart." Someone says they need a bigger boat? "Jaws." You've seen them all. And, though you would never admit this to your dad, you actually like them.

4. And speaking of old, you can rock out to the classics like no other.

5. That and those cheesy '80s hits.

Let's be real; you totally jam out to songs like "Come on Eileen" and "Hungry Like the Wolf." You probs even have an '80s playlist on Spotify (I won't tell...I have one too).

6. You'll never need to call a handyperson.

Because you've mastered every skill there is! Or at least you know to look it up on Youtube and attempt to figure it out from there.

7. You have similar fashion senses.

Socks with sandals? Heck yes. Thankfully, this is a trend on many college campuses, so at least you can get away with it (sorry, Dad).

8. People say you look like each other all the time.

9. You have very similar personalities (and mannerisms).

Family members constantly comment on how much you two are alike. You (frighteningly) notice it more and more as you get older.

10. You both have mastered the art of grilling.

You know nothings better than cracking a cold one and grilling out some delicious food.

11. You are thankful to share so much in common with someone so great.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
