This Is Khloe’s Heartbreaking Reaction To The Birthday Video Kanye Made Kim

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 07:39 PM PDT

Kanye West Twitter
Kanye West Twitter

Kim Kardashian West celebrated her 36th birthday in private, for the first time possibly ever. The star has loved sharing her entire life with her fans up until she was held at gunpoint and robbed in a Paris hotel earlier this month. Recovering in private with her family, Kanye shared the only public moments the family cared to: a beautiful montage of Kim growing up:

The 5 minute video seems familiar enough to those of us who’ve come to know the Kardashian family. It’s intimate moments of joy featuring deceased patriarch Robert Kardashian as well as Kris Jenner, Kourtney, Kim, Khloe and Rob. They’re the close and loving family we recognize from other flashbacks.

The most heartbreaking part is knowing how close the family was with Robert senior, and how his 2003 passing has affected them all. At one point he tells Kim, "Kimberly, follow your honest beliefs and stay strong."

After Kanye shared the video on Twitter as a birthday tribute to Kim, the family chimed in with how thankful they were to see the footage:

The one that struck me the hardest was Khloe’s response. She’s said that she had that hardest reaction to her father’s death and went into a rebellious phase afterwards. Everyone who has lost someone can relate to the tragedy of quietly forgetting what their loved one’s voice even sounds like:

Happy birthday Kim! I’m so happy Kanye was able to collect these family memories into such a beautiful birthday gift. TC mark

1. “She made me feel like I was actually growing up. And I really liked it.”

–Daniel, 24


2. “Having someone to cook with. She taught me how to cook and it was really nice to come home together after work and throw something together.”

–Marc, 27


3. “I was less of an idiot when I was with her. It’s not that she smothered me or nagged me, but I just had less of a desire to drink excessively or go out to the same bars over and over again when I was with her, because it felt so much better to wake up feeling good and have a whole day ahead of me where I got to spend it with a fun person, instead of laying on the couch dealing with a shit-awful hangover.”

–Lucas, 25


4. “Not having to explain to all my relatives why I’m single or why I haven’t settled down yet.”

–Terry, 29


5. “I miss being able to talk to her about stuff that was really worrying me at work. I have good friends, but it’s just harder to talk to them about serious stuff. She was always really good at giving me advice and providing a second opinion for things.”

–Carlos, 24


6. “We always got bagels and coffee on Saturday mornings and obviously I’m not gonna ask another dude to start doing that with me. But you get really comfortable with those little routines.”

–Edwin, 26


7. “Having someone who subtly taught you how to be an adult. Washing your bath mat, making sure there are extra towels when friends visit, having a medicine drawer – I picked up all these good habits from her that I was too stupid to think of myself, and I miss that a lot actually.”

–Richard, 24


8. “Her friends were awesome – some really great girls and guys. It’s just too weird to try to hang out with them now.”

–Aaron, 27


9. “Always having a go-to wedding date.”

–Atony, 28


10. “Having somebody to talk to.”

–Jeffrey, 29


11. “I miss always having someone to watch SNL with. I’ve been going out with my buddies a lot more again, but the club scene gets really old and really depressing really fast, and sometimes I just want to stay in on Saturday night and relax and not feel horrible the next day.”

–Steven, 25


12. “Always having that person to do stuff with you or for you that you don’t want to do with anyone else. Road trips, movies that I want to see, a ride to the airport, help with picking out a birthday present for my mom, etc.”

–Raymond, 24


13. “When you get used to sleeping next to someone every night, it really sucks to start sleeping alone again. It’s nice for the first few days and then it sucks.”

–Pat, 27


14. “A ton of stuff: having someone to vent to, someone to give you advice, someone to travel with, going out to eat together, grocery shopping, cooking together, bringing her to family stuff. There’s a lot that you miss that you don’t even think about until you’re doing it by yourself.”

–Dominic, 28 TC mark

What To Be For Halloween In 2016 Based On Your Zodiac Sign

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 06:01 PM PDT

gratisography
gratisography

Leo

If you are a Leo, you will probably dress up as something completely different than everyone else, so don’t even think about being a cat for a second. Leo’s don’t mind making an impression or being the center of the stage, so you’ll probably dress as something entirely unique like a sexy Queen Of Egypt or someone sparkly from the 70’s.

Aries

Aries are the queen of all queens. If you are an Aries you’ll either being something as powerful as a queen/princess, or you’ll be something bold like a devil (you are fiery after all). Whatever an Aries dresses up as, they’ll be hot; it's woven in their identity.

Virgo

Virgos are intellectual and are knowledge-seeking creatures. So, don’t be surprised if they dress as something like a nerd, detective, teacher, or someone who is trying to figure out why no one is wearing any clothes.

Cancer

Cancers are professionals at being vulnerable. Cancers are down for connection, so this year, more than ever, they will be using the buddy system, (AKA they will probably be matching with their buddies). They will be something like Thing One and Thing Two or have matching footie pajamas with their friends.

Aquarius

Some qualities of an Aquarius (according to Google) are things like being affectionate, lustful, frank, obsessive/ easily addicted to something, or maybe they “tell it how it is”, so they’ll probably go as Donald Trump. JUST. KIDDING. I have found it to be personally true that people who fall under Aquarius are extremely loyal. They’ll probably dress up with their significant other, or even something hilarious like a sexy version of Dr. Bailey from Grey’s Anatomy.

Taurus

A Taurus is ambitious, independent, reliable, and practical. For Halloween this year they won’t be cliche, they be something extravagant yet graceful. A Taurus makes for a perfect gypsy or something in that creative nature.

Gemini

Geminis are the perfect balance of cute and quick-witted. They are typically sociable, so their Halloween costume will reflect that. Perhaps they will be something like Mini Mouse or more of a common costume that relates to the majority, whatever they are they rock it like no one else.

Libra

Libra’s are peace-makers. So they may be just that. Whatever they dress up as, it will reflect their desire for harmony. Some ideas for Libra’s are down to earth things such as musicians, anything in nature, or even someone/something representing magic.

Scorpio

Any Scorpio loves a good fight. They are commanding and intense, and quite frankly are best at representing costumes that fit in the category of scary. Maybe they’ll dress as a ghost, a scary figure, some type of fighter, etc.

Sagittarius

If you are a Sagittarius you are bound to be something colorful and vibrant. You are original, and inadvertently optimistic. For Halloween you'll probably resonate with being something like a sun or a figure from somewhere else in the world, whatever you will be it will represent the world how you see it- which is extraordinary.

Capricorn

Capricorns have a nature that reflects leadership and politics. Capricorns would make a great president, CEO, any kind of politician- anything that can exercise leadership or the willingness to work hard.

Pisces

Pisces are dreamy and creative. Whatever a Pisces is for Halloween, their innovation will be very apparent. For Halloween, a Pisces would make a great hippie, or something that flows and is free spirited. TC mark

Here’s Why Everyone Is Jealous Of You, Based On Your Birth Order

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 05:00 PM PDT

rachelkutznerphotos

First Born

Oldest children are ambitious, driven, and don’t accept failure as an option. They’re constantly in first place, excelling at everything they try their hand at. Oldest children naturally fall into leadership positions, where as people who are born later have to find a way to establish themselves in a role. First borns skip that establishment stage – they just fall into place and go for it.

Because of their natural ability to problem solve and figure out how to make things happen, they seem to be good at pretty much anything. This success and tenacity is something everyone is jealous of when observing an oldest child doing and being their best.

Somewhere In The Middle

Middle children are the peace keepers of the bunch, the glue that holds everyone together. The siblings on the opposite sides typically have more outlandish and exaggerated personalities, so the middle child has adapted by being the calm one. The level one. The one who is not easily rattled or riled up.

People are jealous middle children for their ability to keep their cool when everyone else around them is losing it. It’s nearly impossible to rattle a middle child, to get them heated. And even if they are, they have such a strong poker face that you’ll never know.

Youngest

Youngest children are like magnets for adventures, crazy stories, and fun. They’re the person in the middle of the room keeping everyone enthralled with the story they’re telling, or is getting everyone excited to play whatever game has popped into their head. They have an insatiable hunger for experiencing life to the fullest, and filling their lives with things that make you say, “Wow.”

It’s nearly impossible to NOT be jealous of how fearless youngest children are. They have such a spark about them, such a zest for life, that they are constantly surrounded by interesting people and interesting experiences. Youngest children give people around them FOMO – even if they don’t intend to.

Twin

Twins know what it means to be truly, truly connected to another human being. They’ve known what it means to be someone’s person basically since birth, which makes them incredibly reliable, a great listener, and an incomparable confidant. Twins really, really know how to be there for someone, and love being able to be that person to whoever needs them.

People are jealous of twins because they know how to connect with people on a deeper, less superficial level. They have this air about them that makes people want to open up. Twins are remarkable listeners and make the best friends, which everyone wishes they could be.

Only Child

Only children have grown up kind of living two lives. On one hand, they’re often alone and have had to learn how to get comfortable being that way. On the other, they’ve learned how to stand out, how to make their mark, so they don’t constantly end up in their little fortresses of solitude. They live a life that’s dual sided, both introverted and extroverted, both quiet and rambunctious.

What makes an only child inherently different than anyone else (and subsequently, what everyone is jealous of them for) is their adaptability to live such a life. Only children can roll with the punches and put on a brave face on in almost any social situation. They’re social chameleons and it’s honestly impressive. TC mark

15 Woman Explain How They Deal With Their Boyfriend’s ‘Overly Affectionate’ Female Friend

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 04:00 PM PDT

Look Catalog
Look Catalog

Data gathered from real women on Reddit

1.

I would assume he could handle it himself. If he specifically told me it made him uncomfortable but that he didn’t know what to do, I’d have a conversation with him where we decide the best course of action, and then give him support and encouragement while he pursued that action.

— Little_Lion

2.

I had to tell my boyfriend it makes me uncomfortable so he is less open towards these women.

I saw a picture with his girl friend on him with her legs wrapped around him. Nope. Not okay. He thought it was okay that his girl friends touched him like that, I would NEVER touch my guy friends like that. But then again I hate being touched.

— hsock

3.

I trust that my SO is mature enough to tell me if he doesn’t want to be with me anymore. I like giving hugs to my boyfriends and he knows it, cause we have some friends in common. Obviously isn’t the same kind of hugs I give to my SO and he knows that too. If he wants to hug a friend, girl or boy, it’s okay, we are the same type of person that loves giving hugs.

We are sure that we love each other and that there are some things that the other would be uncomfortable to see, and we don’t do it in front the other, neither behind our backs. We trust each other.

— nachoandrockets

4.

I’d remind my SO know that I’m not comfortable with that, and ask him to talk to the friend about it. If that’s not an option, I’d ask him to cut down on contact with her. And if he didn’t agree with that, then we wouldn’t be right for each other, because it’s a personal boundary of mine to avoid partners who don’t draw the line between appropriate and inappropriate with their friends.

— cactusflowers

5.

The same way I deal with any sort of other relationships (friends, coworkers, acquaintances,etc)…trust him to handle himself. He’s an autonomous adult capable of making responsible decisions.

— tricaratops

6.

I would probably get really jealous, and let my partner know how uncomfortable it makes me feel. I feel as though my partner has good judgment though, and probably wouldn’t be comfortable with anything that would make me uncomfortable.

— MlleWeirdo

7.

Over-affectionate in what way? She’s all over him hugging and stuff? I’d trust that he would know boundaries enough that he’d ask her to stop – as that’s not exactly appropriate for the situation (of him being in a relationship).

If he didn’t think to handle it himself, I’d talk to him and let him know how I feel about the situation respectfully and let him know I’d prefer if he put a stop to it.

I have no problem with my SO having female friends, there are just limits that should be in place in my opinion.

— barkingsquirrel

8.

You let him know that it makes you uncomfortable. If it keeps up, it helps to remember this: If you’re jealous of another woman, you’re probably with the wrong guy.

— LulubyCacharel

9.

We already tell each other whenever someone flirts with one of us. If he, or I, had someone in our lives being “affectionate” (which reads to me like crossing the line physical contact) I would want it shut down. I expect my spouse to tell the friend they have to step back from their “affection” actions, even if it damages the friendship. Same on my end if I was the one with a friend crossing the line.

— TheNamelessOnesWife

10.

I would trust him to deal with it. He would not be okay with a woman who is not me in his personal space physically or relying too much on him emotionally. He’s set a boundary and expect her to abide by it and if she didn’t, he’d reconsider the friendship. I honestly wouldn’t have to say anything about it. It would be handled. That’s because we both agree part of being married is deciding that as far as opposite sex relationships go, we are going to fulfill that need for each other and any other friendships are going to have to take a step back.

— whats_her_face34

11.

It’s inappropriate period. If he is your man it is hands off. No exceptions. Over affectionate is just an excuse. All parties should understand why this is a no no. If not, then there is something they are holding on to.

— charkbite

12.

Most of our friends are overly affectionate, so it wouldn’t bother me. It’s not unusual for a lot of physical affection to go on between the men and the women in our friend group, including hugging, kissing, lap sitting, cuddling.

Anything beyond that, my SO would put a stop to.

— iownakeytar

13.

I would have a conversation with my partner and explain that this friend is making me extremely uncomfortable. If he didn’t act horrified, and immediately take action to fix the situation I’d have tons of alarm bells ringing.

I have been cheated on enough times to know when something is up. Trust your gut.

— Monztur

14.

He’d either be shutting that shit down or our relationship would be.

Don’t tolerate that shit. Nuhuh. Don’t care if that means I’m jealous and possessive. Not gonna tolerate some chick cuddling all up in MY partner no fucking thank you.

— kaywhaaat

15.

My ex and I had this “mutual friend” (neither of us liked her lol) who would always try to be all over him when she saw that I was around. It’s funny because I wasn’t threatened at all, just confused. I wouldn’t really be all over anyone in public, let alone someone who’s taken.

He would just hug her back then distance himself. We would laugh about it later. I don’t think he was as comfortable with me having guy friends like that, so I know he tried to make it clear to his female friends that it wasn’t okay.

7 Smart Ways To Successfully Job Hunt Without Losing Your Mind

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 03:30 PM PDT

Nick Karvounis
Nick Karvounis

Unless you are one of the precious few people in the world who knew exactly what they wanted to be the day they left college without every wavering from that career, we've all been through the exhausting experience that is job hunting. Maybe you're switching careers, maybe you're unemployed or underemployed, or maybe you're just starting out; the point is, we've all been there.

Job hunting can be exhilarating, but it can also drain the life out of even the most positive and qualified candidates. If you're not careful, the vicious cycle can suck you in for months. However, there are a few key things you can do to help keep the insanity at bay.

1. Apply with purpose.

Too many people (myself included) apply to anything and everything that seems to fit. Thanks, Indeed…I can apply with a single click and don't even need to research the company? Awesome! You send out resume after resume, assuming that this is enough. On the rare occasion, you might get lucky, but really the better plan is to take the time to apply to jobs you are actually excited about and interested in. That interest will not only motivate you when it comes time for interviews, but most importantly will guarantee that those interviews won't waste your time or that of a potential employer.

2. Set time frames for doing applications.

Believe me, job sites can be as addicting as stalking your ex on Facebook (admit it, you've done this too). One mildly interesting job can lead to another and another, and oh, yes, I would like to work for NASA as a systems engineer.

I'm sure my Psych degree can fit with that somehow. Click aaand…applied! Now what about CERN? Ooh, marine biologist! What else can I find? Don't get sucked down the rabbit hole of endless job apps. Set aside a specific amount of time for doing job apps each day and stick to it. If you are currently unemployed, this can be especially tricky; you might, quite rightly, think of applying to jobs as your job. You think that if you're not doing that all day, then you aren't exerting control over the horrible, gaping future that terrifies you (I realize I might be projecting here).

The point is, as hard as it may be, limiting the time spent on job apps each day frees you up to do other things that may actually help you balance your mindset and maintain a positive, energetic sense of being. This is a vital aspect of any successful job hunt.

3. Get up and get out every once in a while!

This means you must actually put the computer down and walk away from it. Whether this is going outside to literally get some fresh air or just going anywhere else that your computer is not easily accessible, do it! Just changing locations before returning to your computer can be like doing a quick lap to reset your mental energy. Then, when you do resume your search, you'll be more prepared than ever to give the hunt your all.

4. Change up your routine.

There are dozens of sites you can use to apply for jobs, so don't just stick with one! Upload your resume on at least a few of these sites, and then utilize the internet to its full potential. Job sites are far more streamlined and mobile than they used to be; even in the last few years, major job boards have created new mobile apps which allow you to apply with one click.

For example, the latest mobile app from LinkedIn (LinkedIn Jobs) offers clear and easily manageable tracking systems for finding jobs, reviewing companies, and receiving regular updates on the process. Link these to mobile push notifications and your social media feeds, and you've got the internet doing half the work for you. Granted, some sites will work better than others, so try a few different ones out. Then, when you figure out which are most productive for you, you can buckle down and use those to their full potential.

5. Interact with the world again!

The worst part about job hunting is the lack of communication. You apply for a job and you hear nothing. Worse, you get an interview (or two or three), but you get rejected and never receive a response to your follow up emails. For whatever reason, basic communicative decency doesn't seem to exist when it comes to job hunting (this is true of many employers, though I must say not all). It's easy to feel like you are drowning in the silence. Therefore, it's up to you to remember that you can and should be interacting with the world on your own.

If you are an introvert, call the people you trust most or go to a coffee shop to work every once in a while; just being around people without having to directly interact with them can provide enough social energy to revive you from feelings of isolation. For extroverts, make sure you replenish your energy by talking to people around you on a regular basis, whether that's friends, family, or even random people you pass during the day. Just get out and interact with people! Networking is a golden word in job hunting for a reason, but it sure is hard to do that if you sit alone in your house all day.

6. Remember that BALANCE is key.

Please do not let your job hunt define you! I have done this, and I can tell you it's the quickest way to destroy your own chances at getting a great job. I've had employers tell me the honest truth, which is that they hire people they like who are self-possessed and who will be able to easily fit in with the team; this is sometimes even more important than a candidate's qualifications, because skill sets can be taught whereas personality is preset. To do this, you can't be a neurotic mess before your interviews.

If you go into every interview thinking, Everything depends on this. I have to get this job!, I promise you, your employers will pick up on it. To maintain balance, you can't lose yourself to the job hunt. Stay active, engaged, and focused on things and people you love. If you are a hiker, take time to head out to the mountains every once in a while. Love to read? Then force yourself to put away the phone and computer before bed, and let yourself slip into a fantasy world for an hour. It's alright to take a break, and even better to remember that you have value and interests outside of your career. Remember, job hunting should be one aspect of your life, not your whole life.

7. Don't give up.

This is a hard one, especially as the weeks become months for some people. Know first that the rejections aren't about you. Just look online, and you'll see hundreds of stories of amazingly qualified people getting rejected on a daily basis.

Job hunting is like dating; it can be entirely arbitrary at times. Just like a date may be turned off by your hair, your clothes, your vegetarianism (or lack thereof), or any myriad of seemingly insignificant attributes, the same is true of an interviewer. Maybe they really wanted to go with an inside candidate, or maybe they didn't like the specific phrase you used; I've even had employers tell me they didn't hire someone because they liked the wrong football team (seriously). It's unfair and it's frustrating.

Remember that your interviewers are human, and therefore subject to human faults. You will go through periods where you are ready to throw your computer against a wall and scream, I give up! I'm worthless, and no one wants me! I'll never get a job! Please, don't give up. That doesn't mean you shouldn't feel this way, or that you shouldn't express it. Yell, scream, sob in the shower…it doesn't matter. As long as you get it out, you are processing your emotions; it's when you try to hold them in that things fall apart.

Please know that this is normal, but most importantly, know that you are intelligent, talented, and that this can't last forever. Somewhere, somehow, an employer will see the value in having you join their team. When they do, it will make the months of heartbreak that came before it seem so worth it. TC mark

2. You feel unashamed going to the bathroom while they're in the shower.

3. Or brushing your teeth while they're peeing.

Video: Man Discovers A Bizarre Campsite In The Middle Of The Woods…Surrounded By Pictures Of Missing Persons

Posted: 21 Oct 2016 02:12 PM PDT

From the description: “This is something I stumbled across while hiking in the woods this afternoon. There’s like 25 missing persons posters taped to the trees, along with some ratty old bedding, a shovel, a large tent, and a collapsed handmade wooden cage surrounding a filled-in hole. I tried to get as many of the posters in frame as I could but the video was aborted when I heard voices coming from the direction of the adjacent residence. Recorded on the afternoon of October 3rd 2016 (“Mean Girls Day”) in Suffolk County, NY.”

Additionally, he says these particular woods are along the border of a park. It’s hard to tell just what’s going on but if I happened upon a rundown campsite surrounded by taped up missing persons posters I’d probably record it as I freaked out too.
