8 Family Members You'll Encounter During The Holidays

Shoutout to the little cousin's who make sure you're constantly laughing and not acting your age at family dinners

8 Family Members You'll Encounter During The Holidays
NY Daily News

The holiday season is in full swing and that means all your relatives will be visiting, announced or not. Sure, you may have a secret favorite side of that family, but whether it be mom's or dad's side, there's always going to be those relatives.

1. The one aunt who embraces PDA way too much

When you see her making the bee-line to ultimately smudge lipstick all over your face, grab the closest available child and use them as a human shield.

2. The overly conservative uncle who just doesn't stop

We get it, you would lick the gum off of Donald Trump's barefoot for free because you worship him more than God. Don't even get him started on the idea of accepting the idea of gay marriage or immigration.

3. The Grandfather who shares more war stories than the History Channel

I will say, hearing stories from your grandparents is better than reading any history textbook. However, the older you get, the more likely you are to be able to recite the stories while your grandpa drifts off halfway through for his post-dinner nap.

4. Your favorite older cousin

Everyone has that one super cool older cousin they always idolized. They also can tell when you've had enough, because they've lived through it all too, and may or may not help slip you something to spice up your soda.

5. Your favorite younger cousin

Shoutout to the little cousin's who make sure you're constantly laughing and not acting your age at family dinners. Who said the kid table is for anyone under 12?

6. The comparing cousin

"Well, you're cousin has this job. They also have been in a relationship for this long. They went to this college and got this degree and saved 50 orphans in Uganda." That's great and all, but last I checked, I'm content with my life and I'm not my cousin. Next topic.

7. The family members that are always late

The food is on the table getting colder and colder. The chips and dip, crackers and cheese, and other finger foods are all gone. Everyone is starving and without fail, a whole entire squad of your family is nowhere to be seen. They were told a time an hour and a half prior to the actual start time too!

8. Your grandma who keeps asking if you found 'the one'

If the one is a pint of Ben and Jerry's, then yes, I found the one. To be exact, I found more than 60 of 'the one.'

Despite all the cra ziness that ensues, at the end of the day family is family!

The 100 Things Millennials have ruined: A Comprehensive List

Millennials: the generation everyone loves to hate. The babies of 1980 to 1995 take a lot of heat. I mean, we inherited a crashed economy, earn stagnant wages, live with crippling student loan debt, and try to enact change in a rigged system but our affinity for avocado toast and use of technology has wrecked society as we know it! As a tail end millennial, I wanted to know what I was ruining and, like any other annoying millennial would, I did some research. I scoured the internet, read online newspapers and scrolled through every listicle I could find. So, in case you needed another reason to resent the millennial in your life, here are the 100 industries we've killed, things we've ruined or concepts we've destroyed.

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

Anxiety Doesn't Discriminate

It's no secret that even in 2018 our country still struggles with discrimination of all kinds. Society labels individuals by the color of their skin, heritage, religion, sexuality, gender, size, and political beliefs. You are either privileged or you're not. However, here's the thing, anxiety doesn't care about your privilege. Anxiety doesn't discriminate.

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

As Tik-Tokers rise to fame, do their 'copy-cat' dances deserve the clout?

Tik Tok Stars: Worth the Hype? or Overrated?

Oh, the wonders of social media. Trends come and go just as quick as a story on Instagram, everyone posting for their shot at fifteen minutes of fame, and the ever growing following of a new type of celebrity- social media influencers and content creators. Everyone who owns a smartphone probably has Instagram, Twitter, Snapchat, and now Tik-Tok, as it's growing to be a major social media platform for teenagers and young adults. Tik Tok became popular in the United States in late 2019 and since then has grown a considerable amount. Personally, I was one to make fun of Tik-Tok and say it was a dumb app like Musical.ly or Triller, and now months later, I spend more time on it than I do on Instagram.
