6 Things To Thank Your Little Brother For

"Because I have a brother, I'll always have a friend."

6 Things To Thank Your Little Brother For

"Little Brother: My brother is a nuisance... My brother is a pain. If it was up to me I'd leave him outside in the rain. But don't you tease my brother or be mean to him at all, 'cause I'll stick up for this little guy 'cause he thinks I'm 10 feet tall." - Patsy Gaut.

Even though he is now taller than me this quotes use to be the quote I'd use to describe us. Brothers, especially little brothers are the most annoying. But at the same time they are the best people in the world. Being the oldest child, I'm allowed to say all of this. Because, it's all true! My little brother is the most annoying person on the plant. We fuss, fight, and sometimes I'm surprised one of us aren't being checked into a hospital after the end of our fight. My little brother is someone I say, "I hate you" to at least once a day. But, at the same time he is the most understanding, loving, honest person I've ever met within these 17 years of my life. Of course I should tell him I love him a little more than I do as well as thank him, so here it goes:

1. Thank you for loving me even when you hate me

You are one of the only people I know that loves me even when you hate me. I appreciate that, more than you'll ever know. When I make you mad, and I know that I do, you are still there for me no matter what. (This little boy even favors my brother so that's a plus LOL)

2. Thank you for defending me even when I think I don't need it

I act like I don't need defending. Because sometimes I really don't need it. But sometimes I do need it and it feels great knowing that I have someone that will always be there to defend me whether I'm right or wrong. I know you'll always be in my corner.

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

Even when it may or may not hurt my feelings, you never care. You'll always point out whether or not I'm being stupid. No matter what, I can count on you to love me through my stupid fazes.

4. Thank you for reminding me I deserve better

Whether it be guys, friends, or really anything in general. You are steady telling me "You deserve so much more." If it wasn't for you I might still be with that guy that treated me like crap. If it wasn't for you telling me that everyday I might still be friends with that girl that ran over me every chance she got. So thank you a thousand times for this.

5. Thank you for being annoying

I can't believe I'm actually thanking you for this one. But I am because if your brother isn't annoying then you haven't experienced the joy and hatred of having a brother and that's so sad. So thank you for being the annoying little brat that you are. I'm glad I have you!

6. Thank you for inspiring me

You honestly inspire me to be a better person. You are one of the sweetest, most down to earth person I know. I'm beyond blessed to be able to say that you are MY little brother.

I love you more than you'll ever know. So here's to the arguments, threats and fights I'm sure we'll end up having. You are the bomb.com!

Your Social Activism May Actually Benefit From A Cleansing Social Media Detox

In the craziest year of our lives, sometimes there's value in taking a break.

We are living through, unequivocally, one of the most dangerous, unstable, chaotic periods of any of our lives. From COVID-19 to crises of police brutality to the mass exploitation of the poor by mega-corporations, the world outside seems to be looking more dystopic every day. What can be done about it? For many, activism involves heavily posting on social media to keep others aware. However, this comes with a net negative cost — increased levels of anxiety, depression, and hopelessness about the state of the world. Why might this be? After all, in past eras activists have endured comparable and greater levels of abuse and relentless torment from oppressors. Why, now, are people getting so easily burnt out?

5 Things You Need To Know Before You Watch 'Arrested Development' On Netflix

"Her?" Yes, she's an amazing show! (You'll get this joke after you watch the show).


"Arrested Development" is an award-winning sitcom that aired for three seasons on Fox beginning in 2003, and then was picked up by Netflix for a fourth season in 2013, and then again for a final season in 2018.

However, it seems to remain one of the world's most underrated and under-appreciated shows of all time. Although this article alone won't be enough to skyrocket the show to Netflix's top 10, I hope that it will open people's eyes to the value and quality of the show.

I have always felt left out because of how I look and who I am. I have always felt like the elephant in the room, literally. I have always been shamed for my size. For the longest time, I cared so much about what I wear and who I wore certain things in front of. I never wanted to wear shirts that would show a lot of my arm, located above my elbow. I wouldn't wear shorts that didn't go to the tip of my knees, at least. I never wore anything remotely tight, where you could see every curve, roll, or imperfection. I was so insecure about myself, and not many of my friends knew.

Being a pharmacy technician never held as many risks as it does now. Exposure too hazardous conditions were little to none, and garbing up was only conducted in IV compounding. But, now, in order to give nurses the medications they need to help their patients, they need us, pharmacy technicians.

I Asked My Boyfriend His Opinion On Liking Other Girls’ Pictures, And, Spoiler Alert, It's Cheating

"When you get into a relationship and you're in love, you have to realize that liking photos is for the single lifestyle."

Ladies, listen up. If you are in a relationship with a guy and he is liking other girls' pictures on social media, then it's a red flag. A man who can look at someone else and show interest by liking it means he doesn't care about your feelings AT ALL.

Celebrities Stealing Designs From Small Fashion Labels Is NOT A Good Look, And They Need To Pay Up

When larger, more established figures or brands steal from lesser-known independent creators, they are taking opportunities away from these creators while also profiting from someone else's work and claiming it as their own.

Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B recently collaborated on their new single "WAP," with the music video also being released on Friday. Both Megan Thee Stallion and Cardi B posted photos of themselves on Instagram to celebrate the premiere of "WAP." An independent designer quickly noticed that the rappers' matching tops were copies of a top she had designed last year.

7 Books That Are NOT In The Young Adult Genre That Will Change Your Life

Young Adult isn't the only genre that exists, so here are seven books that any book lover wanting to try something new will love.

One of the most popular genres in literature that everyone has read at least one book from is Young Adult fiction. Now, I personally can say that, in the past, I have been one of those people that only read from the YA section of the bookstore.
While there is absolutely nothing wrong with just reading one genre, it's good sometimes to venture out of your reading comfort zone into the other book genres of the literary world.

In a previous article, I discussed the importance and power of words. The perfect example of this is literature and its impact on the world. Books have always played a crucial part in human lives, from how we are able to expand our knowledge to how we pass our time.
