The cast of the Jersey Shore closely resembles a family, and just like every family, they act a little crazy (okay, maybe crazy is an understatement, but you get the point). Until this moment, you probably never considered the fact that your family and the cast of this hit MTV show actually have a lot in common. You all fight like animals, you cry A LOT, you get a little dramatic, you bond in odd ways, and you're absolutely unpredictable. When you all pack your bags for a family vacation, this resemblance to the Jersey Shore family intensifies. Although it might be wild, it's an experience that everyone should be thankful for.


1. Your parents tell you that you're going on vacation

2. It's the night before you leave and you are just now starting to pack.

3. You get the itinerary finalized and you're ready to go.

4. It's the start of the trip and you're actually getting along with your siblings.

5. You're still in the car and everyone's already complaining about your attitude.

6. You find a hot guy in the lobby that just so happens to be your age.

7. Your mom's jokes aren't funny, but you laugh anyway because you're about to ask for some spending money.

8. Arriving at the hotel and jumping on the bed like.

9. It's day one, you're burnt, and your mom's already lecturing you about skin cancer.

10. Ordering dessert at the restaurant because you're on vacation and your parents are ready to spend some money.

11. The lectures about grades, poor choices, and your future begin.

12. Your parents are trying to drag you to some historical monument or whatever.

13. You're with your sibling 24/7 and the bickering begins

14. It's all harmless until they start telling your parents all the stuff that you did while you were gone at school.

15. Getting yelled at for "always being on your phone."

16. Your parents turn the light off to go to bed at 11 PM.

17. But luckily, you and your siblings can take a break from your bickering to go find something to do when they go to bed.

18. Looking over and seeing your sibling drunk and dancing like this.

19. And then you realize how much trouble you're going to get into when your parents notice how much you let them drink.

20. Having to share one bathroom between your entire family and everyone seems to be taking their sweet time.

21. Your family gets mad at you for taking too long to get ready.

22. When your family members fail to take an aesthetically pleasing beach candid of you.

23. Your parents are ready to start the day before the sun is even out.

24. Missing your friends back home.

25. Everyone's stuff is everywhere and your mom says, "We're on vacation, why am I still the only one who does anything around here?"

26. Coming to terms with the fact that your life is not The Notebook and the hot boy from the lobby will not be your summertime love interest.

27. Chowing down on that slightly questionable, but still delicious breakfast buffet.

28. Happily charging a Stouffer's mac and cheese, two candy bars, and a soda to your room, which is linked to your dad's credit card.

29. Packing your bags and realizing that the trip is coming to an end.

30. You go home and realize that although it was an experience, the trip was full of making great memories with your family.

A Thank You To My Boyfriend's Family

Because you are so important to him, you are important to me.

This one isn't easy to sit down and write because nothing I could say would do all of you justice in the way that I would hope I could. These are just words, but I hope that I am able to always show my thank you to you by treating him like the prince he is.

I can replay the moment of meeting each and every one of you all over and over in my head like it was yesterday. I was so extremely nervous every single time and I was trying to gather all the "right" things to say that would leave a good, first-lasting impression and that at the end of the day, you all would like me.

I think one of the most important basis and hopes in my relationship is that my significant other's family likes who I am. This is so important to me because whatever is important to him is equally important to me and your thoughts of me are crucial to our relationship.

The second I walked in the door, I was overwhelmed—overwhelmed with such a love. I had no idea at that point in time just how much you would all mean to me and how thankful I am for all of you!

Thank you for constantly making me laugh and feel at home.

Whenever I'm coming over for a family gathering or just to hang out, I know right off that I am walking into a world of laughter and good times are right beside that. You are all so entertaining and always have a good story to tell me. I can't name one time where I didn't feel like I was home.

And I appreciate the sweet, embarrassing photos and stories about my boyfriend that you all share with me! Even if it is by a photo, I have a glimpse of what his life has always been like thanks to each and every one of you individually.

Thank you for sharing your special moments in life with me.

You don't ever have to, but you invite me anyway. Whether it's just a family gathering, a birthday, or a holiday, I am thankful to have spent those times celebrating these moments in life alongside such amazing people. It's humbling and heartwarming to be a part of memories so unforgettable that you all share and that you have welcomed me to be a part of. They are days that I will never forget and have a place in my heart forever.

Thank you for always being there for him.

Since we have started dating, I have watched the way that you guys love him. I have watched the individual relationships and moments that you share with him make a difference in who he is. I have seen you all love and support him, no matter what he was doing.

With everything that comes along in life, this has been a simple reminder of an unconditional, loving, sacrificing family that is also the best support system. You are not only impacting him, but me, too.

Thank you for welcoming me in like your own.

Whenever you have to brave up and meet your significant other's family, I can say, for myself, that I didn't know what to expect. As I'm sure, none of you did when meeting me. Today, I catch myself wondering why I even worried in the first place. You all have welcomed me in your own ways and made me feel right at home. It is not always easy to do that with just anyone, but you have all taken the time to get to know me. And now I know that if I ever needed anything, I can call one of you.

Thank you for letting me date him.

I am most thankful for this. Thank you for sharing him with me and giving me a chance to show you all how important he is to me. I never thought that I would luck out and meet someone as special, kind, and wonderful as he is, but I did.

You have supported our relationship, given me a chance to love him, and welcomed me to new adventures in love and family. I have the upmost gratitude for each of you. You are the most wonderful, welcoming, and loving family. I am overjoyed to be able to experience just a glimpse of this life with him and with all of you.

College Has Definitely Changed My Relationship With My Siblings, But We're Still As Close As Ever

College will change your life in several aspects; including the relationship you have with your siblings.

I was raised to always put family first and I would like to think that I have. I am the oldest of three; we are extremely close. We were always with each other growing up and would have the occasional fight. We acted just like every other pair of siblings. However, I moved to college and a lot has changed since then.

I moved to college a year ago and have loved every minute of it. I always communicate with my family so I know what happens when I am not home. However, I still miss a lot.

I missed watching my brother grow into a man. He was a baby when I left and magically grew 6 inches in the short time I was gone. I missed his junior prom; which wasn't a big deal to him but it was to me. I missed watching his personality grow into who he is now. I missed seeing his love for life grow through the year I was away. I get to hear about his life goals after he has already decided instead of being in the process with him.

My sister is now as tall as I am which is shocking to me considering she was shoulder level when I moved. She grew overnight in my opinion. I feel like I missed a lot with my sister. She was maturing into a young woman. She had to learn how to apply makeup properly from someone else rather than me. I missed several dances of hers where my mom did her hair rather than me doing it. She had to do school work with the help of the internet rather than me. I missed a lot with her because she was younger when I left.

However, even though I missed all of these important life events they still make me feel included when I am miles away. They send me pictures of outfits and ask my opinion, send me examples of homework, and ask how my life is going. They make sure to include me which makes me feel great.

When I visit home is when it is the best though. They make it seem like we have been together this whole time. We are back on the roasting, arguing, and annoying each other. They pack enough in at every visit because after a while I am ready to be back in my apartment and they are waiting too. However, our love is strong and will never be destroyed; we just have to wait longer to annoy each other.
