18 Pros/Cons That Come With Having Siblings

The 18 Pros, And Cons, Of Having Younger Siblings

The more you have, the better it gets?


Little brothers and sisters are really the greatest blessing you will have. You have a big responsibility showing them the ropes of life, even if it might be hard sometimes. And no matter what, you will always be there for them. Don't get me wrong, as you are maturing, they are still learning which can cause some tension between your relationship with them. But, you do and will take full advantage of them every second you get. Here are some relatable pros and cons:

Pro: They give the BEST hugs.


Con: They copy everything you do.


Pro: You can all team up against your parents.


Pro: You get the honor of showing them what it's like to lose.


Con: They are more spoiled than you will ever be.


Con: They steal your friends, clothes, and other things without asking.


Pro: When you are too lazy to get up, just ask one of them to get something for you.


Pro: They are your #1 supporters.


Pro: They are your free masseuses.


Pro/Con: No matter how much they piss you off, you are never able to hold a grudge.


Pro: You will always have someone to be yourself with.


Con: They are too innocent, so they will rat you out.


Pro: They provide free therapy, even if you have to force them.


Con: They will argue on why and how they are smarter than you. 


Pro/Con: You have to drive them places.


Con: If you tell them it's a secret, it will be told.


Pro/Con: You will take the blame for them, even if you know you will get in trouble.


Pro: But through all of that, they still are your forever best friend.

9 Reasons You're Still In Love With Tim Riggins In 2019

Clear eyes. Full hearts.

If you're a Friday Night Lights fan, you know very well who Tim Riggins is. And if you've never seen the show, he's basically just the bad boy football star and sensitive hottie of your dreams, all wrapped into one heart-throbbing package. If you haven't already fallen under the Tim Riggins spell, you're about to...

1. He's the star running back of the Dillon Panthers.

Basically every girl who has walked this earth has fantasized about having that cliche football relationship. No shame. #33 on the field, #1 in my heart.

2. He's actually really sensitive.

Tim Riggins may seem hard and dysfunctional on the outside, but he's really just a big softie. He's no JD McCoy, who grew up lavishly and extremely fortunate; Tim had a rough upbringing. He and his brother, Billy, had to work hard all by themselves just to stay above water, which is most likely what keeps him so grounded and humbled.

3. He loves kids.

Tim didn't even think twice about taking his neighbor under his wing when he moved in next door. And for some reason, there's just somethin' about cute boys holding babies that makes us girls swoon.

4. He's genuine and honest.

Sure, maybe he took advantage of his football-star status and slept with most of the rally girls, but once he fell in love with Lyla we saw his compassionate side. (You probably envied Lyla and maybe even hated her for a while because of it...I know I did.)

5. He knows how to have a good time.

It's 5 o'clock somewhere.

6. He's a family man.

Tim took the blame for his brother's crime and went to prison for it...if that's not loyalty then I don't know what is.

7. He's affectionate.

If you either hate Lyla or you want to be Lyla or a combination of the both, you are not alone.

8. He's protective.

Probably the only time you've ever wanted to be in a tornado was when you watched the episode where he shielded Julie from flying debris.

9. He's beautiful.

You're welcome for blessing you with this GIF.

May you all find your own Tim Riggins. Amen.

Poetry On The Odyssey: It's a Girl

An ode to the little girl raised to be insecure.


They raise little girls to be insecure

Little girls grow to be big girls

People always ask big girls why they're so insecure

Big girls aren't quite sure

Day after day the big girl can't keep up

She's exhausted

Her soul feels worn

The big girl learns to grow hard

In a way, she's a bit stronger

People call her a bitch


What is that?

How can she let that affect her

It's simply the only way to be her

She mourns that little girl

Hoping that one day

She'll be strong
