If only our everyday lives consisted of wearing clothes by high fashion designers, waking up in a mansion in California and traveling to Paris the same day, attending an A-lister’s party, owning ten expensive cars ranging from Ferraris to Bentleys, and just casually hanging out with the people we can only dream of meeting. This is the life of a Kardashian. Not only are they fortunate enough to experience it, but they also share it with the world through a hit reality TV show, “Keeping Up With the Kardashians.” Although the show always seems to be about the glitz and the glamour, there are times the family runs into dilemmas we can all relate to. Here are the times we can say that we are one step closer to being a part of their family.

Every student’s motivation of getting through the week is knowing that we are getting closer to the weekend. It gives us all some time to relax and take some time away from school. Austin is a city full of things to do and sights to see, and it can sometimes be overwhelming when it comes to deciding what we should do. Unfortunately, there are times when we get excited for plans we make and something bad ends up happening before we even get in the car, like bad weather, a friend bails on us, or the event ends up cancelling. On one of the episodes, Kourtney had planned a romantic getaway to Europe with her on and off beau, Scott Disick. He ended up bringing some of his friends along for the fun and Kourtney had to cancel all her dinner reservations. What a way to ruin a romantic getaway.
Social Media is a Priority
Snapchat is the rising social media platform that allows everyone to share what they are experiencing at any moment. The University of Texas at Austin Snapchat story gives the students an inside look as to what is going on around campus. It is a great way to communicate about student organization fundraisers and sports functions. Here on campus, there is something happening everyday and what better way than to Snapchat our everyday moments? For example, Kim effortlessly taking selfies for her Selfie Book she was giving to Kanye as a birthday present. In any moment, she will never go without taking a picture of herself. After all, if you didn’t take a Snapchat of it, did it really happen?
The Struggles of a Hungry College Student
Sometimes we have those days where we only have two strips of bacon left in the fridge, we don’t feel like making food because it seems like a long process, or we’re just too lazy to go to the grocery store or get something to eat. With a few dollars left in our pocket, we question whether or not we should spend it on food. We continue to live up to the name “poor, hungry college student.” Khloe can feel our pain by being too comfortable to get up and get something to eat. In one of the episodes, she asked Kourtney to make her something to eat since getting up seemed like the hardest thing to do.
Exam Day Plot Twist
There is always that one class we struggle with every semester and the only thing worse than receiving homework on a daily basis are exam days. Those late nights we stay up studying for and preparing for the exam can be stressful -- especially the times when we feel like the test was a piece of cake, but our test scores say otherwise. There is nothing worse than seeing all our hard work go to waste. Kourtney reveals how she had been working hard on her app to launch it the same day as her sisters, but with Scott Disick being a handful, she had to delay the release. Looks like Kourtney is not the only one having to face reality.
Micro-napping Through 8 a.m. Classes
How we feel about being in class everyday, especially for those early morning classes. Surviving through long lectures can be a killer. We zone out multiple times from staying up late the night before. All we can think about are our beds and the naps we’re about to take once the class is over. Numerous times, all the sisters complain on the show about early call times for photoshoots. Even though they are not 100% awake during the time they are getting their makeup and hair done, they stick through it.
Living a day as a Kardashian seems like the ultimate dream, but even this family runs into hectic situations that we can relate to.
