21 Of The Most Relatable Moments Of 'Lady Bird'

With the Academy Awards approaching, there is a lot of buzz for this year's contenders. One personal favorite is 'Lady Bird,' coming in with five Oscar nominations for Best Picture, Best Actress, Best Supporting Actress, Best Director, and Best Original Screenplay.

Watching 'Lady Bird' as a woman in her twenty-somethings, I could not identify with the film more. Here are some of the most relatable moments from 'Lady Bird.'

1. When you definitely studied the night before.

You're just double checking your answers, right?

2. When you aren't getting your way.

Actions speak louder than words.

3. When you finally find the competitive sport made for you.

Rookie of the year, right here.

4. When you turn 18.

If you didn't buy cigarettes, porn, and lottery tickets on your birthday, did you even turn 18???

5. All of those super sexy, smooth high school hookups.

Literally nothing more awkward than two horny teenagers trying to go at it.

6. When you had to give your friends political advice as a budding adult.

I mean no one is more politically aware then seniors in high school, right?

7. Your first love.

And nothing feels more magical.

8. And ugly crying your way through your first heartbreak.

If your best friend doesn't support you at your lowest, you need to reevaluate.

9. When you rebound with your first artsy f*ckboy.

He's just so dreamy and ~deep~.

10. Figuring out how to properly present yourself.

Eventually, you'll learn to stop selling yourself short.

11. When you're up on your high horse.

Sometimes you just need your mom to check you back down to reality.

12. Learning how to deal your anger in a mature way.

Express yourself.

13. Other mature ways to express your anger...

Totally healthy, BTW.

14. When those hormones are raging.

Go on and get yours.

15. When you just need to sob in your mother's arms.

She never did require an explanation from you.

16. Any given Catholic education experience you may have had.

That "God is always watching" stuff really shakes ya.

17. When your dad comes through for you.

Thanks, dad!

18. When your college counselor suggests taking the ACT/SATs one more time.

Thanks, but no thanks, Susan.

19. When you finally get that college acceptance letter.

As a side note, this bedroom is the stuff of adolescent dreams.

20. Learning that a best friend is once in a lifetime.

Popular kids and romantic interests will come and go, but you can always count on a true friend.

21. When you finally realize that living your truth is actually what is cool.

There is only one you.

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.
