21 Kardashian Moments That Made You Say 'Literally Me'

21 Kardashian Moments That Made You Say 'Literally Me'

The funniest and most relatable statements by the queens of reality television.

I'm not going to lie, I have always been so obsessed with the Kardashians. I can remember so far back to when my mom and I would watch "Keeping Up With The Kardashians" weekly and sometimes daily.

That family honestly gets so much unnecessary hate when they're really just doing the best they can and living their life to the fullest with all of the blessings that they've received in life (regardless of how they got them).

I have made a list of my personal favorite funny reactions and things that they have said on the show that I now quote on a regular basis.

1. "How Do You Do Anything With Those Nails?"

Getting my nails done with long tips bring me immense joy, and I honestly feel like I can conquer the world. Khloe gets me.

2. When Someone Is Trying You

Something that I have learned is to never let anyone walk all over you. Always stand up for yourself.

3. When Someone Tries To Tell You How To Live Your Life

Sometimes you just really didn't ask.

4. Whenever You Walk Into Any Room

If you just feel like a queen wherever you go then your day is just so much better.

5. When Your Best Friend Meets A New Guy And You Can't Find Him On Facebook

As if I'll allow her to date someone without doing an extensive background check.

6. When That Piece of Useless Information Brightens Your Day

It's the little things.

7. When You're Spilling Tea And Someone Asks You Questions About It

Tea sessions are for the juiciest gossip, not the minor details.

8. When All Of Your Classes Have Group Projects At The Same Time

It's like they did it on purpose.

9. Your Best Friend After Listing All Of Your Expectations For A Man

Your best friend keeps your standards high but reasonable.

10. When Someone You Don't Like Asks You A Simple Question

Literally just don't talk to me at all.

11. When You're Trying To Figure Out What Went Wrong With Your Best Friend's Love Life

It had to be the emojis.

12. When Someone's Stupidity Just Ruins Your Day

You don't need that kind of negativity in your life.

13. Observations At A Frat Party

I don't think my friends have ever stayed at a frat party for longer than 10 minutes.

14. When You Can't Simply Send A Text

What is five minutes without technology?

15. When You're Trying To Explain Your Style

There's not really a way to describe Tumblr style, but you understand.

16. When Someone Asks If You Like Wine

It's basically one of your best friends.

17. When Someone Asks Me About Any School Subject

Especially on the weekends. That part of my brain has shut off so just don't bother.

18. When You've Had A Long Day

I specifically remember going to Whataburger and Taco Bell in one night because my roommate and I couldn't decide between tacos or fries.

19. When You're Tired Of Worrying

I'm just going to let God take this one.

20. When Someone Has Something To Say About You

There is literally no point in worrying about what other people think about you because everyone will have some unwanted thought on it, so just do you.

21. When You're Near People

I cannot stand being around large groups of people for an extended period of time.

What's The Deal With Barre Workouts, Anyway?

Understanding the barre method.

I first learned about barre exercises while locked in my college advisor’s office. Her name was Megan, and she was the type of person who would wake up, go jogging and drink a kale smoothie before I could brush my teeth. Unsurprisingly, Megan was also known for locking herself in her office and doing impromptu barre workouts. One day, I asked her to show me the ropes, and she told me, “It’s harder than it looks.” I’m pretty competitive, so I threw it back in her face. “It can’t be that bad,” I said.

As it turns out, we were both right.

After 15-minutes of pliés and back attitudes, I was sweaty, sore, and ready for more. If you too have been thinking about getting into barre, consider this your crash course.

The Beginnings of Barre

Barre may seem like a trendy, new exercise fad, but its beginnings date back to pre-war Germany. Today’s barre studios are based on the teachings of Lotte Berk, a Jewish ballerina from Cologne. In the 1930s, Berk and her husband moved to England to escape the rising tide of Nazism. Berk continued to dance professionally for several years until a combination of health and financial concerns pushed her to open her own dance studio. In 1959, she opened the Lotte Berk Studio in the basement of her West End home. There, she taught the likes of Brooke Shields, Barbra Streisand, and Joan Collins. Berk continued to dance and teach classes well into her eighties. She ultimately passed away in 2003 at the ripe age of 90.

Barre Comes to America

In the 1970s, one of Berk’s students, Lydia Bach, bought the rights to her name and opened the Lotte Berk Method Studio in New York City. The studio rapidly gained prestige, and several of its original instructors began to open their own barre fitness chains. These spin-offs eventually surpassed the popularity of the original studio and ultimately forced it to close shop in 2005. Today, chains like exhale and Physique 57 have hundreds of locations all over the country. Bar Method has nearly 100 studios of its own, and Pure Barre has more than 300. Some studios even sell certification programs that pass on Berk’s teachings to a new generation of barre instructors.

Hold That Pose

Much like pilates and yoga, barre exercises work by isolating specific muscle groups with isometric movements. In other words, participants generally hold static poses rather than making large, compound movements. These techniques are thought to have two key benefits: strength maintenance and muscle definition. In contrast to traditional strength training, isometric contractions are thought to be better at maintaining strength than building it. This means that barre exercises will add minimal bulk and maximum definition. In addition, isometric movements are also thought to be less likely to cause repetitive stress injuries.

The Dark Side of Barre

Despite the numerous benefits, barre workouts have faced their fair share of criticism. Most of the negative press deals with potential joint damage. Some exercises, like the grand plié, require the participants to put weight on their knees for an extended period of time. Other fitness experts claim the barre exercises don’t raise the participant’s heart rate as much as cardio or traditional strength training. Perhaps that’s why every chain has its own spin on barre method. Take exhale — this combination spa and fitness studio was founded by Lotte Berk Method instructor, Fred Devito. Nonetheless, their barre classes incorporate everything from planks and pretzels to yoga and high-intensity interval training.

Choosing a Studio

With so much variety, it can be difficult for first-time barre students to choose a studio. My personal recommendation? Buy a Groupon and try different studios until you find one that works for you. That said, here are a few distinctions between some of the largest national chains. Established by Lotte Berk Method instructor, Burr Leonard, Barre Method reflects the serious, results-oriented focus of the original ballet disciple. In contrast, Pure Barre borrows from the Soul Cycle model and incorporates high-energy instructors and playlists. exhale and barre3 reside somewhere in between these two extremes. Both studios focus on wellness and athleticism over form and discipline. Despite these differences, all four chains share several similarities — classes are booked online, cost roughly $25, and include low-impact exercises.

Setting Expectations

Before you book your first appointment, make sure you buy a pair of grippy socks to help reduce slippage. When you get your class, you can expect to see a long wooden ballet barre and several full-length mirrors. As you wait, participants will line up along the walls and begin to stretch. When class started, an instructor will walk the students through a variety of ballet-inspired exercises. Dance experience is welcome, but absolutely not necessary. Unlike ballet classes, instructors tend to focus on function over form. In addition, participants are usually more interested in their own development than judging their neighbors.

That just about it! You know everything you need to get started with barre. All that’s left is to take the plunge.

10 Reasons "The Post" Was a Great Movie

10 Reasons you should go see it

"The Post" is a movie about a newspaper called the Washington Post in 1971 when Katherina Graham and Ben Bradlee decided to go forward and publish the Pentagon Papers. The Pentagon Papers was a study that was commissioned by the U.S. Government and detailed the United States involvement in Vietnam before the Vietnam War started and explained that the Vietnam War was a failed venture. All of this information was kept from the public until the New York Times published copies it had secretly obtained. The New York Times was told by the Attorney General to stop publishing or else be sued by the U.S. Government.

So when the Washington Post got their hands on proof that the United States was fighting a war to save face and not for the reasons they were saying to Americans and not winning either way. They had a choice, publish and risk getting sued and losing their newspaper or publish and tell the American people the truth, because their government wasn't going to do it, or ignore the papers' existence.

"The Post" does a great job of telling this story and how Katherine Graham, the owner of the Washinton Post, and Ben Bradlee, the executive editor of the Washington Post, decided to publish the Pentagon Papers and risk everything.

Here are 10 reasons "The Post" was a great movie. In other words here are 10 reasons you should see the "The Post".

1. "The Post" shows political journalism is a patriotic light, instead of something trying to get underfoot of politicians.

Right now this is very topical as every day President Trump complains about the media saying mean things about him says they're lying. Today the press isn't playing middle school and the President of the United States shouldn't be either.

2. It is an accurate account of a historical event.

3. It is an accurate account of how women were treated then.

And how Katherine Graham showed the world that women were as capable as men in the business world. Another crack in that glass ceiling.

4. "The Post" relays an accurate account of how media earned its place in the White House and politics and that good journalism deserves respect.

5. Explaining how the good political journalism serves the people.

Something that our current Commander in Cheif is woefully unaware of. When the New York Times and Washington Post were sued for publishing the case made it to the Supreme Court and 6-3 the Supreme Court ruled in the newspapers' favor. The Supreme Court explained that their decision went back to the Constitution itself and that stopping the press from publishing something that did not put any future military plan in jeopardy or American life in danger and did nothing more than tarnish the reputation of the President because of decisions he'd made and hidden from the American people wasn't illegal. “The press was to serve the governed, not the governors."

This is the Judicial branch protecting the media and creating a check on the President. The President is not the State and is not above criticism.

6. Telling the story of how the Washington Post become the newspaper it is today.

Before it was a local newspaper and after this event had the country's ear. Hard work, taking risks, and knowing what is right really pays off.

7. "The Post" reminds us how hard reporting and journalism was before, texting, cell phones, and the internet.

Also, how complicated the actual printing process was. Seriously, I have a new respect.

8. This is a great period piece.

I'm no historian but I felt pretty emersed in the 70's with the cars and the fashion.

9. Meryl Streep and Tom Hanks.

Nuff said.

10. It was a well directed and well acted and so much hard work from so many people paid off.

Good Movie. Go see it.

There you go. So what are you doing? Go to Fandango right now and buy tickets to see it! Or buy it online to see it!
