12 Times Skeeter From 'The Help' Was Every 20-Something's Spirit Animal

"I'm sorry, were you dropped on your head as an infant or were you just born stupid?"


Without a doubt, Skeeter Phelan is one of the most relatable characters in literature (and on the big screen). She's witty, sassy, bold, and funny. Not to mention, her movie incarnation is brought to life by none other than Emma Stone. Her family is a little bit annoying, but very loving. Her boyfriend is a hard headed idiot, but she loves him. And her reactions to various situations probably make her your spirit animal.

1. Every time her mother reminded her that she's still single


I think everyone on the planet has either been here or will be one day.

2. When she had to double check what people were talking about


Honestly, this is me every single day.

3. Every time she hits someone with an eye roll


We all aspire to this level of sass.

4. When she was shocked by her good hair day


If this isn't me, I don't know what is.

5. When everything was just too much for her to handle


We all have those moments of pure mental breakdown.

6. When she was so surprised by the people around her


Whether it was a good moment or a bad moment, we've all had it!

7. When she was stubborn as heck


She wasn't backing down for anything, especially on things that were important to her.

8. When she was feeling particularly satisfied with herself


Look at her little smirk and sassy sunglasses! She was totally happy with whatever she had been up to!

9. When she was just a little confused (again)


If you say that this isn't your reaction when your mom asks you if you've had enough water/sleep during the semester, you're probably lying.

10. When she was just done with everyone


Seconding that full body sigh, Skeeter!

11. And finally, when she wasn't afraid to tell it like it is


You go, girl!

6 Places in New York City Every "Friends" Fan Needs to Visit

Grab a cup of coffee at Central Park.

As a Friends fanatic myself, I often wonder about the places in New York City featured in the various episodes and whether I could actually visit them. Most of them are fictional or no longer exist, but there are a few places you can go to reminisce about your favorite Friends moments. So, here are 6 places in New York City you definitely need to visit as a Friends fan.

1. The Apartment Building, Obviously

The building used for the exterior shot of the apartments in Friends is real, and is located at 90 Bedford Street at the corner of Grove Street in Greenwich Village. It's an obvious must-see.

2. The Pullitzer Fountain

This is the fountain that the friends danced around in for the iconic theme song, and it's located right in Central Park.

3. Bloomingdale's

This is the department where Rachel worked before she moved on to Ralph Lauren, where she met Joshua, and where she started her career in fashion.

4. The Plaza Hotel

This is where Monica and Chandler celebrated their engagement in The One WIth Monica's Thunder, and is actually really gorgeous.

5. The Central Perk Replica

While Central Perk isn't a real coffee shop, a pop-up replica opened up in 2014 on Lafayette Street and it's definitely a must-visit.

6. Chandler's Office

The fictional Chandler works in the real Solow Building, located on West 57th street.

It's been a long, long time.


This past week, the Jonas Brothers released a song and music video starring their wives (and in Joe's case, fiancee), completely shocking fans given the fact that there was pretty much no prior warning. As rumors are running rampant about their getting back together and a possible tour, now seems like a good time to reflect on their past. Specifically, my favorite songs that they've written. And if the rumors are true...I hope to find new favorites soon.

1. "Inseparable"

2. "Australia"

3. "Hold On"

4. "Shelf"

5. "Can't Have You"

6. "Turn Right"

7. "SOS"

8. "Sorry"

9. "Black Keys"

10. "First Time"

11. "Hey Baby"

12. "Paranoid"
