7 Things All Sisters Know To Be True

They say that a sister is God's way of proving that He doesn't want us to walk alone. When you have three, I'm pretty sure that's God's way of saying He wants us to learn how to run, and fight, and practice safe self-defense skills on a regular basis. With two older sisters close in age and one ten years younger, I got to experience being babied as the favorite child, then quickly having to figure out how to be a good big sister and role model. As time goes on and we are still surprised by the new things we are learning about one another, here are the things we all know to be true when it comes to having sisters.

1. They are your "Partners in Crime"

Having a sister means always having at least one person to go to. If you needed help hiding a bad grade or keeping something from mom and dad, your sister is the go-to gal. Despite if it was because she was feeling generous that day, or if you blackmailed her, she always had your back -- no questions asked.

2. You learned MMA before it was cool

Fighting with your sisters means no rules. Any fight is a reason to fight. By the end of the argument, you never know what you were fighting about in the first place, you only know that you were right (obviously). No worries, the idea of forgive and forget was made for sisters.

3. Karaoke and Dancing

No matter what, having a sister means having a dance party whenever and wherever it is needed. With dancing means singing, and pretty soon an all out karaoke session is bound to break loose. Watch out, sisters that sing together can be pretty dangerous.

4. Closet Bandits

With sisters, there's always a thief around. Things go missing and you know exactly who to blame, except they will always make a rebuttal with "you took mine." On a rare occasion they ask politely, but even then you say no--it's the principle of the matter.

5. "Oh, you girls remind me of..."

It's a sure thing that whenever you are all out together, you will get compared to famous groups of sisters. No matter how flattering or rude, all you can do is nod and smile.

6. "You look just alike"

This is another one you always hear. You can look completely unrelated, yet people will continue to mention how similar you look. Of course, it didn't help when your parents insisted on putting you in the same outfits, just only different colors, because you were so unique.

7. Built-in Bodyguard

Having a sister means always, no matter what, having someone there for you. Having a sister means having someone there to catch you when you fall. Having a sister means having a hand to hold and a back to lean on, because no matter how far apart you roam or how mad you get at each other, at the end of the day you are and always will be sisters. Having three sisters means I get blessed with three times that responsibility and most importantly, three times the love.

For as long as I can remember, I have been listening to The Beatles. Every year, my mom would appropriately blast “Birthday” on anyone’s birthday. I knew all of the words to “Back In The U.S.S.R” by the time I was 5 (Even though I had no idea what or where the U.S.S.R was). I grew up with John, Paul, George, and Ringo instead Justin, JC, Joey, Chris and Lance (I had to google N*SYNC to remember their names). The highlight of my short life was Paul McCartney in concert twice. I’m not someone to “fangirl” but those days I fangirled hard. The music of The Beatles has gotten me through everything. Their songs have brought me more joy, peace, and comfort. I can listen to them in any situation and find what I need. Here are the best lyrics from The Beatles for every and any occasion.

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
