The Stages Of Tinder As Told By The Kardashians

Remind me again why I keep using it?

If you by some chance found your soulmate early on and never had to delve into the indescribable world of Tinder, props. Congrats. Kudos! That sounds delightful, I just... I just can't relate.

The Kardashians are known for being *at times* dramatic. Which, for those of us who have cycled through the Tinder stages we know drama is all too frequent and relatable when it comes to using the app.

When you've finally gotten over your breakup and are starting to get back into the game.

When you go through the *abysmal* selection and just find tons of fish pics.

Oh God... What if these people see me in public and recognize me, but I don't recognize them?

OR worse -- what if they're catfishing. Honestly he looks too good to be true.

Yup. Catfished.

It's OK there are always more. New date tomorrow anyway...

Ah yes, this guy wants to send a dick pic. What a catch.

WAIT THIS NEW GUY IS SO HOT HE SEEMS SO COOL.

And the date actually *gasp* goes well!

You already decide to start planning your future wedding because you just "clicked".

Because you have to know every single solitary detail about your new man, you do some research.

When you realize that he just broke up with his ex.

Or worse... still dating someone...

Back to the drawing board.

When he turns out to be as toolish as his profile.

When your date is sucking and you literally have nothing to talk about.

And you kind of just want to get to the point.

When you finally come to the realization again that being single might not be a bad thing for a while?

Who needs men??

Really, it's a time for yourself...

...but your cuffed friends always find a way to remind you daily of your singleton status.

So despite Tinder proving to be a failure time and time again, you re-download the app the second you delete it.

Aaaand we're back to the cycle.

Finals Week as Told by the Kardashians

Sometimes we're all just Kim ugly crying.

Honestly, the Kardashians are way more fucking relatable than you may have thought--especially when it comes to finals week. They feel your pain. They get you. They know what disaster feels like. They also know that sometimes you just have to put it all in fate's hands and relax. Let's face it: Sometimes, we're just all Kim ugly crying.

SUNDAY

It's Sunday evening and after a week of cramming for exams your confidence is at an all-time high. You got this shit in the bag. Bring it on, finals week.

MONDAY

OK, so like maybe you weren't as ready as you thought you were. Actually, you were totally unprepared but there is a whole week left of exams to go so you're trying to keep your cool.

TUESDAY

Screw keeping your cool. It's only Tuesday, and shit is going down fast. Who the hell came up with the concept of "finals" and why the fuck did someone decide you deserve a whole week of them? You're just tryna live.

WEDNESDAY

It's Wednesday and at this point another final honestly seems like it may be the death of you, but hey, death may be a better alternative to your calc final. I heard there's no cosine in heaven.

THURSDAY

If you flunk out of college, you flunk out of college. You've had at least a few exams by now and there really are no fucks left to give. Spike your coffee on the way to your exam and kick back--it's up to the big man now (aka your professor, please have mercy).

FRIDAY

It's Friday bitches! You're 99 percent sure you bombed at least half of your finals. But hey, sometimes that's just the way life goes. Kourtney's right, you can't plan your life out. Although you maybe could have studied a tiny bit harder. But, you know, live and let learn right? College is really fucking expensive anyways, you could always just drop out and become a Dash Doll.

BONUS: It's still Friday and you're free from the shackles of finals week! Get plastered and drunk text your ex. Enjoy the night and make decisions you'll regret in the morning. I promise you won't regret them more than you regret not studying for Spanish. Ol? mother fuckers.

Family Holidays as Told by the Griswolds

Hallelujah! Holy shit, where's the Tylenol?

'Tis the season for giving, drinking, and dealing with the joys of family holidays. Not only is Christmas Vacation a holiday classic, it's also oddly relatable when it comes to holidays spent with the family members you see once a year. You'll find yourself identifying with Clark on a very deep level.

When your mom first tells you you're going to you grandparents for Christmas and that your whole extended family is joining along too. She's trying super hard to convince herself-and you-that this won't be a shitshow.

Five minutes after arriving to the lovely family gathering and she's already thrown in the towel on acting like you aren't all going to spend the day ahead of you in complete misery. How many times can your grandma call you by the wrong name and why the hell are all your cousins so fucking weird?

Here comes ever family's resident white trash relatives. Sure to pull up in an old beater and spend the next few hours complaining about financial issues that could really be fixed if someone in the family decided they should get a job. There will most likely be more than a handful of cigarette breaks, teenagers included. But hey, at least they provide some form of entertainment and a chance to reflect on just how together your life is in comparison.

You're half way through the day, way to go trouper. But after that hour of listening to your overly religious Grandma discussing the gays and healthcare your head may actually explode. Time to find a dark corner or empty room to hide in for a while.

You're begging your mother to go home and she's trying to tell you it's not that bad, you can make it another hour or so. Little does she know, you literally cannot make it 5 more minutes.

Finally, the time you have been waiting for. The day is over and it's peace out motherfuckers. See your crazy asses at the next family holiday.

Vacationing with the Boyfriend's Family

Remember to offer to help when you can.

In May I was presented with the opportunity to spend ten days in Florida with my boyfriend of nearly one year and his parents. At first, I was hesitant of accepting this offer because I wanted to spend as much time at home as possible before my year abroad. In addition, the thought of sleeping in a bed together ten feet away from his parents made me nervous. After his parents insisted on paying for the flight and hotel, I couldn't say no.

We managed to stay cool on the beach every day, and my boyfriend and I didn't kill each other despite spending a constant 240 hours together. This vacation taught me and reminded me over several things to keep in mind while traveling with bae's family.

You learn a lot about people when traveling with them.
Their likes and dislikes are a lot more visible, and you identify how differently people go about doing things. It's not your place to judge them though, so just go with the flow while continuing to do your own thing.

Be flexible.
If someone treats you while you're on vacation, you can't expect to do everything that you want to do. Instead, make suggestions and see if anyone else wants to do that too in your party. Remember to make the best out of everything you do.

Don't spend the vacation just with your significant other.
Keep in mind that you are a guest, and your boyfriend or girlfriend's parents want to spend as much time with their son or daughter as you do. So don't ditch the parents at the beach or zoo and spend most of the time hanging out together. Alone time will be sure to arise.

Lend a hand.
Get to love the phrase, "What can I do to help?" Embarrassingly enough, my boyfriend had to remind me to help his parents out by doing the dishes, cleaning up after ourselves and helping to pack up the car. I shouldn't have had to be reminded, but sometimes it's hard to remember this type of stuff when you're in vacation mode.

Be respectful and gracious.
This should be your mantra for the entire vacation. Don't sleep in every day (like I did) or walk around in your underwear. Save the intimate aspect of your relationship for home. Offer to pay for your own food when you go out. Say thank you at least 20 times a day. And show your appreciation and enthusiasm for the vacation. My boyfriend and I bought groceries and cooked dinner for his parents one night, and they really appreciated it. Find ways for you to do something special for the family.

It's definitely different vacationing with another family other than your own, but it's a really good experience (you'll have fun along the way too). It's very strange to think about ten years from now, but you could be vacationing with actual in-laws. These reminders will still be important then!
