If You Live Near Your Cousins This Is #Relatable

They say cousins make the best of friends and that's no understatement.

If You Live Near Your Cousins This Is #Relatable
By Mya Pfeifer

July 24 is National Cousins Day so to celebrate, I thought of my own cousins. There are seven of us in total, and we're all girls, we're all about the same age, and we all grew up on the same street. I thought back to our memories as kids I couldn't help but feel lucky to have had the experience of being best friends with my cousins. However, when you're in that scenario, you experience some pretty routine things that the people whose cousins live in another state just don't experience.

1. There was always someone to play with

Bored? Just walk down the road and ask your cousins to come over? Their parents won't care because they know your parents are watching them. In fact, they'll end up walking to your house to hang out too!

2. Going out to eat together was always a headache

You need three separate checks and either a table for 16 or approximately 4-5 smaller tables.

3. Family parties were a blast

It was like every other day, but with fun food.

4. You knew everyone in the school 

Because they're friends with your cousin.

5. You could have sleepovers all the time

Your parents didn't even have to call their parents to make sure it's okay.

6. You have the very best friends in the world

Friends can ditch you or stab you in the back, but your cousins are your family and they'll be with you for life.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack. With so much in my backpack important to me and my life on campus, it is no wonder that I can get apprehensive about it when it is not with me or in my line of sight. And that makes me wonder.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?

'The Addams Family 2' Film Review

The sequel to the 2019 reboot is an enjoyable, but unremarkable start to the Halloween movie season

There's a reason why the Addams Family have become icons of the American cartoon pantheon (although having one of the catchiest theme songs in television history doesn't hinder them).
