It's the littlest Smirl sister's 16th birthday! In order to celebrate, the older sisters recount their own sixteenth birthday parties which seem to include an odd amount of psychological terror. So light those candles and get to partying with all three of the coolest sisters around!

The sisters are (sadly) home from vacation this week, but good news! They played some old school board games and they're so ready to talk all about them. And, for the first time in Still Buffering history, there's a video companion to this episode of the sisters playing these games on Rileigh's YouTube channel!

As summer vacation sadly comes to an end for the youngest Smirl Sister, all three recount their favorite parts about going back to school, and maybe their not so favorite parts too. And Sydnee also shares her lifelong first day of school fantasy that includes background music and sunglasses...yeah this episode gets a little weird.

This week, the sisters got a tad more serious than they are in their usual episodes, but with all three of them having personal experiences and troubles with this topic, it was something they felt needed to be discussed. But don't worry, there are still goofs as they try to crack FaceBook algorithms and why they always show Teylor cupcakes.

Let's have a slumber party! (Rileigh insists that no one calls it that anymore and will only refer to them as sleep-overs, but guess who's in charge of the text this week?) Sleeping bags are so out, prank calls are more complicated, but we can always agree that parents who buy donuts in the morning rule.

Rileigh and Sydnee swapped playlists and are ready to take you on a tour of teen music, from the arduous years of cassette rewinding to the dangerous game (that we certainly never played) of illegally downloading music. Also, Rileigh had never heard of a VJ.
