Growing Up In A Big, Close Family As Told By Kardashian Gifs

Because you're both a little ~extra~.


If you're like me and grew up in a big, loud, super close family, then you probably understand how easy it is to relate to the Kardashians in the same way that they're also pretty extra. But I mean, how can you not be? Big family + a bunch of big personalities =

Family get togethers are LOUD.

Yet somehow it doesn't bother you. You're ~used~ to it.

In fact, when it's NOT ear-piercingly loud you start to get worried and forget how to function.

"Why is it so quiet? Who's mad?"

And get togethers? What am I talking about? You're pretty much ALWAYS together anyway.

You're each other's biggest supporters... and biggest source of peer pressure.

Partner in crime? Yeah, I've got 15.

You're always together even when you're not.

There are MULTIPLE group chats.

You're pretty much each other's best friends.

Why hang out with anyone else?

You never feel awkward around them and can tell them anything.

"Hey can you look at this spot on my butt?"

You're ready to singlehandedly take down anyone who tries to mess with any of them.

But you know you won't ever have to by yourself. If you mess with one of us, you'll get all of us.

You have no sense of embarrassment anymore.

Someone WILL spill something, or break something, or say something inappropriate EVERYWHERE. YOU. GO.

You've always got someone who's down to participate in your ~shenanigans~.

Bad idea? Good idea? By the end of it no one's probably going to remember the original idea in the first place.

When you're away for long periods of time you start to have withdrawals.

BUT sometimes you just need to take some time to yourself. You know, so you won't go crazy.

No you don't.

But when you all get back together after being apart for a hot minute... Well.

There's SO much to catch up on. It's SO loud. ANYTHING could happen.

But despite their loudness or craziness, you don't know what you would do without them.

They're your rock and you're truly blessed to have such an incredible family.

Big families who are super close are so important, but so is every other family out there that loves and supports each other. Without my big and crazy family, I wouldn't be the person I am today, and I am thankful every single day for the incredible group of people I got stuck in the middle of.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
