You love your family, there's no doubt about that. But to say you want to be around them 24/7 is an overstatement. With the holidays approaching family time is inevitable and so is all the drama, love, and craziness that comes with it.

1. The judgmental aunt 

No matter what you do or say, She'll have a snarky comment and low key insult. She's always on some sort of fad diet, and oh God don't you dare come after her sweet kids, even though they're just miniature versions of her. Probably named Mary.

2. The Overachieving cousin 

Yes, Christi we get it, You graduated Summa Cum Laude and have almost cured cancer; Oh and you're dating the president's son. Good for you, now sit down and your sweet potatoes.

3. Inappropriate and slightly racist grandparent/great aunt/uncle

You love them to death but some of the things they say make you want to vomit in your mouth. They have no filter and constantly remind you to vote for Trump, and to find a nice husband because your fertility clock is ticking away.

4. The Black sheep

Most likely a cousin, aunt or uncle. They didn't conform to what the rest of the family wanted and live thousands of miles away in California working odd jobs and smoking weed. You were taught to be disturbed by them, but now you think they're cool and have hella respect.

5. Your ride or die cousin

This is your best friend, homie, and lifeline at family events. You guys have been inseparable since day one and have a spiritual connection that'll last till the day you die.

6. The drunk uncle 

Gets drunk before turkey comes out, most likely Mary's husband. Talks only about football and beer. Bonus if he lives vicariously through his kids and talks about his high school glory days.

7. You 

You're knee deep into the first semester of college and are simultaneously living your best and worst life. You thought thanksgiving break would be a relaxing and enjoyable time, but soon realize you're ready to go back to school ASAP.

A Tribute To The Lonely Hispanic

In honor of Hispanic Heritage Month, I’d like to share a few thoughts about being Hispanic in a country where it’s hard to be Hispanic.

Veronika Maldonado

Just a little background information; my dad was born in Mexico, came to the U.S. as a newborn and became a citizen when he was 25 years old. My mom was born and raised in the U.S. as were my grandparents and great grandparents, but my great-great grandparents did migrate here from Mexico. I am proud to classify myself as Hispanic but there are times when I feel like I’m living a double life and I don’t fit into either one.

An Atlanta Weekend

A New Yorker's quick weekend in Atlanta.

On a weekend visit to Atlanta, I had to adjust to people being personable and congenial to me. Although I had lived in the South before, I had to get reacquainted with southern hospitality due to visiting from Brooklyn. Atlanta Uber drivers are very down to earth, offer snacks, and provide great genuine conversations. The opposite is the lay of the land from Brooklyn Uber drivers. The southern hospitality is provided not only from the Uber drivers, but restaurant servers, cashiers, or random people giving suggestions. Brooklyn is a dope and unique place to live, but short on the warmth more often than not.
