Your Fantastic, Awkward, Uncomfortable, And Enjoyable Family Reunion As Told By Pete Davidson Gifs

Here's how every Summer Family Reunion goes down- as if you were Pete Davidson.

Your parents try to tell you that this reunion won't be as bad as you think it will be.

media.giphy.com

They're wrong.

However, upon walking through your relative's front door, some aunt or grandparent is already judging you.

media.giphy.com

Yes Grandma, it's called F A S H I O N, ever heard of it? Oh wait, THAT hole? No, that one's an accident.

You're not quite sure how to interact with your extended family that you haven't seen since last summer.

media.giphy.com

Are we going for a hand shake or a hug here?

Bonding with your cousins is even harder.

media.giphy.com

What... isn't this what you fellow young people talk about...? No...?

Then one of your family members asks you one of those cliche convo-starters like, "So, how are you?"

media.giphy.com

I know what you meant Aunt Ethel, but I'm in no mood for your games.

...or even worse, they say, "Fill me on how your year went! Tell me everything!"

media.giphy.com

DON'T DO THIS TO ME AUNT ETHEL! I'M ALREADY UNCOMFY IN THIS SOCIAL SITUATION! DON'T MAKE ME SPEAK!

Or, icing on the skin crawling conversation cake, someone asks about school.

media.giphy.com

I dunno, I paid thousands of dollars to sleep through my 8 a.m. a few too many times. Is that what you wanted to hear, ETHEL!?

Finally, dinner's ready and you yeet away from the torturous chit-chat and towards Grandma's famous dinner rolls which you haven't had since last summer.

media.giphy.com

Sorry Ethel, can't talk- too busy- harumph- eating -hork snork- these rolls. Can someone pass the butter?

Of course, your uncle makes the same joke at the table that he made last year... and the year before that... and the year before that...

media.giphy.com

You are the Master of the Polite Sympathy Laugh.

Someone inevitably will bring up that very embarrassing story of your when you were 8 that you hoped would die 11 years ago when it happened.

media.giphy.com

Drop it, Grandma. Just drop it. OKAY, SO I WAS 8 AND PUT THE BATHROOM'S VAGASIL ON AS SUNSCREEN. DROP IT.

... or Grandpa starts on a tirade about how you and your cousins are wasting your summers inside.

media.giphy.com

Well, Someone has a very reasonable fear of needing to use sunscreen after a Certain Incident, so hop off my case Grandpa.

This tirade eventually morphs into the long-awaited political battle-royale.

media.giphy.com

Grandpa, c'mon, I just wanna enjoy these dinner rolls and avoid Aunt Ethel in PEACE!

Now you and your poor cousins have to answer all your relatives questions about being a "Millennial."

media.giphy.com

Yeah, I'm a feminist. No, that doesn't mean I'm better than men or any other gender. Yes, there are more than two genders. Can someone pass the butter!

Yup. If you weren't sure before, now you're certain you need to hide your sexuality from certain relatives.

media.giphy.com

Who's that girl you see me with on all my social media? Uh... my friend! My really good friend!

Finally, the topic changes and you and your achievements become the focus.

Yes, I did pass all my classes! Even though I slept through way too many 8 a.m. classes, somehow I didn't fail!

media.giphy.com

Then it changes to how perfect your perfect cousin is, and the flame of the cousin rivalry is reignited.

media.giphy.com

Yeah, well did Jason help set the dinner table today? Hmm! Bet his academic scholarships can't fold napkins as nicely as I did here. Sorry, MANY academic scholarships.

Speaking of your perfect cousins, they may have gotten all the good genes, but your summer fashion sense hasn't changed from a hoodie and jeans.

media3.giphy.com

No, I don't want to put shorts on. No, I'm not too hot. I DON'T WANT TO GET SUNBURNT, AND YOU KNOW I CAN'T USE SUNSCREEN, SO DROP IT, AUNT ETHEL!

Finally, you've had enough and try to retreat to your your phone, behind your parents, or your aforementioned hoodie.

media.giphy.com

Grandpa's #MeToo questions can't get to me in here.

Or you make a terrible excuse to go to the solitude of your guest room for a breather from all this socializing.

media.giphy.com

Oh, me? Yeah, I'm "not feeling too well." I might take a "nap." Works every time.

However, your parents will come in, insisting you should come back out and socialize.

media.giphy.com

Mom, if I don't have a minute alone, I might spontaneously combust from social interaction.

When they leave and you're finally alone, your guilt starts to build and this inevitably creeps into your brain.

media.giphy.com

Dang it, Mom. Why you gotta guilt-trip me so well?

Finally, you come back out and do that "Polite Listening" conversation with all the old folks, wishing you could be anywhere else.

media.giphy.com

Yes, the dinner rolls WERE really good... Oh, of course, I'd love to hear about the recipe... Wow, whole wheat flour- I never woulda guessed, Grandma.

You're certain all the home footage of you and your relatives from today will look like this.

media.giphy.com

Aunt Ethel... please... I don't want to "twerk" with you.

Even though you're uncomfortable, you can use this time to rake in the Instagram likes.

media.giphy.com

#Family #LoveThem #Blessed #Fam #TogetherForever #JohnsonFamilyReunion #Johnsons5Ever

It finally clicks that you're stuck with these people forever, and that's okay. Even though their insufferable, you love them because you know you're insufferable too, and they love you right back despite it.

media.giphy.com

Jeez, these people saw me slather myself with mounds of Vagasil and still willingly talk to me. Well, if that's not family...

You look around at your family and smile, because they've been with you since day one and always will be there.

media.giphy.com

I can't wait for next year's reunion. Wait- Aunt Ethel is twerking again. The feeling of love is gone.

Social Media Or Soul Media

To the generation that cares way too much about affirmation.

  • This semester I am taking the ever so famous class, Writing 101. Walking into it, I had heard the horror stories about each major assignment. I have to admit, it’s not a class that I am fond of. But, major assignment #2 got me thinking, we had to create a research question based off of a topic that we are interested in.

Two weeks prior, I watched a very interesting documentary on Netflix. Miss Representation was recommended to me by one of my friends and I have to say the topic is absolutely mind blowing. Social Media and Female Body Image. How Social Media makes girls see this unnatural perfection of ‘beauty’ that really doesn’t exist. But female body image isn’t the only thing affected by social media.

Sex And The Church

A letter to fellow believers.

4384
Amanda Hayes
  • I know many of you just read that title and thought it was scandalous to see something so “risque” in the same setting as something holy. Well guess what – sex is part of that. Everyone seems to think they are separate, which makes since because most people treat them as though they are complete polar opposites. Shall we think this through?

Who created the Church body? God. Who created the body? Also God. If we know God to be the creator of all things, we cannot leave sex out of that equation. God created sex, people! Praise Him! Like all great things, the world has twisted and perverted it. The world has stained it so badly that even many church congregations see it only as stained and keep quiet about that part of God’s word. Many people know that God told Adam and Eve to “be fruitful and multiply” (Genesis 1:28), but a lot of people overlook the entirety of Song of Solomon. The entire book is dedicated to telling of the love and sex between man and wife. God blessed us with the gift of intimacy, one to be shared between husband and wife. Church if we teach of sex as the blessing that it is, more people will start treating it as such. If we stop viewing sex as this unspeakable act, the temptation would be lessened. With the fall of man, humans naturally desire things they should not have. So if more people speak of it with gladness and praise, and do not hide it in the darkness as if it were vile, fewer people would be drawn to it for the wrong reasons. More people would appreciate it for what it is: a gift from God.
