Ten Things You Can Look Forward To Happening On Thanksgiving As Told Through Gilmore Girls.

Ah, Thanksgiving. It's a wonderful time of year to sit back and think about what you're thankful for, to reconnect with family you haven't talked to in a while, and eat more than anyone could have ever thought possible. Somewhere in between the mashed potatoes and gravy and putting up the Christmas tree, you're bound to have at least one awkward or uncomfortable moment transpire, whether it be between you and a family member or two completely different family members. Here are ten things you can look forward to happening on Thanksgiving, as told by Gilmore Girls.

1. Probably more than once, a family member will ask you about the plan you have for your future and then dash your dreams when they bring you back down to reality:

2. That uncomfortable feeling of being forced to spend time with people you don't really know that well in the first place:

3. You and your sibling will argue and you will drive each other insane with one another's super annoying antics, which means fighting like children:

4. Chances are at least one family member will complain about another and you'll have to pretend like you're not enjoy it even though you are:

5. Seeing that one person who you hardly ever see but have to hug because of the occasion and not really knowing how to go about that:

6. Seeing a cousin you haven't in a while and realizing that puberty did more for them than it ever did for you:

7. Having someone ask your dad about how is job is going and cringing at your father's enthusiastic reply:

8. Your grandma asking you if you're seeing anyone at the moment, and having to face the disappointment she doesn't even try to hide when you say no:

9. Hearing that someone you're not close with is getting a divorce but you went to the wedding so you feel weirdly sad at the news of their breakup:

10. The many reassurances of your family's unwavering love and undying support:

As stressful as Thanksgiving can be, it's important to remember to reflect on what you're truly thankful for and to hold your family close, because time is precious.

11 Reasons Why Getting A Cat Is The Best Thing You Can Do For Your Mental Health

Cats may mess up your puzzles but they'll always love you unconditionally — as long as you have some catnip, that is.

Scout Guarino

Alright, everyone, it's time to stop spreading the rumor that all cats are mean, aloof, and hate everyone. Like dogs, each cat has its own personality and tendencies. Some like a lot of attention, some like less — each person has to find the right cat for them. As for me, my cats Bienfu and Reptar have seen me at my worst, but they've also helped pull me out of it. They're a constant in my life and they give me the strength to get through the day in spite of my depression, and there's even scientific evidence to support it!
