12 Things To Thank Your Big Brother For
Grace Analise Esbensen

"There's no other love like the love for a brother. There's no other love like the love from a brother."

Having a brother is both a blessing and a curse. A blessing because you have a best friend for the rest of your life, and a curse because let's be honest... brothers can be a pain in the butt sometimes. Even though siblings fight they are your family, and no matter what happens you love each other at the end of the day.

So, to my brother even though you probably know all these things I would like to formally thank you for all you have done for me.

1. Thank you for making me strong

2. Thank you for always being down to get food.

3. Thank you for protecting me. Without you who would take care of all the boys who broke my heart?

4. Thank you for showing me what I can and cannot get away with.

5. Thank you for keeping my secrets.

6. Thank you for listening to me whine about things.

7. Thank you for telling me when I'm being stupid.

8. Thank you for making fun of me.

9. Thank you for forgiving my mistakes.

10. Thank you for letting me steal your hoodies.

11. Thank you for always being there for me.

12. Thank you for being my best friend.

I know sometimes I mess up but thank you for being there for me every day, I am truly lucky to have an amazing brother like you.

Love always,

Your little sister

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night.

I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
