For most of you, this will be the last time this year where you’ll have to get together with your family and spend all day hoping for a strong Wi-Fi connection and the absence of invasive questions. You got through it last month on Thanksgiving, and you will get through it again.
Try not to be so standoffish. If you don’t go around much, your family will be thrilled just having you there. Play games, take pics, laugh at bad jokes, sneak off and take shots of your dad’s liquor with siblings. You got this. See you in 2018.
