"Did you see THAT on Facebook?!"

Texts Every Family Group Chat has

Being so far away from your family makes keeping in touch really hard. But, thank the Lord and rest his soul-- Steve Jobs came up with the perfect way to keep updated with what's going on with the fam-squad and extended family: the group chat.

Most families have created a group chat to exchange important news, share stories, and keep schedules synced. The dynamic is different for every family, but there are token texts every single one of them shares.

"What do we need from the grocery store?"

Of course a list was made, and mom has all her coupons at the ready, but this is her last-ditch effort to give all family members one last chance to tell her if they need anything. This never works because someone always forgets they needed something super important, but hey-- at least she tried.

"OMG you'll never believe what happened to me today!"

Story time is the best time. Even if they story isn't that great, it brings the family together for a minute or so to laugh at what happened to an unsuspecting family member. Some of the best story-times have been shared via text.

"What time do you have that again?"

Keeping up with a busy family can be hard, and someone always forgets when something is. And someone else in the chat totally forgot about the event altogether. This text also keeps everyone on the same page. It's a small miracle families functioned so well before the group chat was started.

"Did you see what (insert extended family member's name) posted on Facebook?!"

Ahh, social media. The best and worst thing to happen to society. Of course no family is perfect, and sometimes there is bad blood, but in times like these, social media is great for keeping up with (and probably making fun) the other sides of the family.

"Who did (something that really annoys a parental unit) this morning?!"

Crickets. No one is ever gonna admit they did something stupid. Nice try.

"(Insert a dig at a someone)"

Group chats are the best for roasting family members. Maybe it's what they did this morning, or maybe someone got snagged posting a not-family-approved photo on the gram. These are the perfect platforms for just lighting a family member UP. In person is always better, but nothing beats making fun of someone!

"Don't forget..."

Whether it's a lunch, a birthday, or papers, the group chat holds every accountable. It's so awesome to a great support system always there for you.

"Hey, I love you guys"

Sappy, yes, but it ALWAYS makes everyone smile.

So, go ahead. Reread the group chat. I hope it makes you laugh!

It’s everyone’s favorite time of year. Christmastime is a celebration, but have we forgotten what we are supposed to be celebrating? There is a reason the holiday is called Christmas. Not presentmas. Not Santamas. Not Swiftmas. Christmas.

Recently, an article on Total Sorority Move called 23 Things My Boyfriend Better Not Get Me For Christmas, was going around on social media.
