8 Perks Of Being The Big Sister

I love you guys.

8 Perks Of Being The Big Sister

I am the middle child of five girls, and let me tell you, things can get super crazy in our household. My two younger sisters and I are the final three still living at home, and while sometimes it can be super outrageously annoying, the perks are seriously what makes everything so great; being a big sister is one of my most treasured accomplishments that I will never let go of.

1. They Will Never Stop Looking Up To You.

My youngest sister is a sophomore in high school, and whether it is how her earrings look with her shirt, or how her butt looks in a pair of pants, she comes to me for absolutely everything, and it never gets annoying. I feel so honored to be admired, even when I feel like I haven't been the best example.

2. Sharing Clothes Rocks.

Just in the past few years, we have all started wearing "around" the same sizes in clothes. Even though we drive each other crazy stealing sometimes, it is always nice to have such a selection.

3. You always have a cuddle buddy, and it's never weird.

I can't tell you how many times a day we sit closer on our huge wrap around couch just to cuddle. Love is comfy.

4. Judgement free zone, always.

Eat as much as you want, wear what you want, say what you want, it doesn't matter, they won't judge you, they'll join you.

5. If someone messes with them, they mess with you.

One time this lady tried to call the police on me because I told her to leave my sister alone, and I would do it again. If you have sisters you understand, especially younger ones. Plus don't be a jerk, mind ya own business

6. You already went through it, so you can help them through it.

first heartbreak, high school, mean girls, hard classes, wardrobe malfunctions, all of it...you've already been there, you can help them...everything happens for a reason, right?

7. They are younger, prettier versions of you

I don't know about you but my sisters make me so proud, I love dressing them up, and watching them shine.

8. Lifelong best friends.

This goes for all of my sisters. There is always someone to count on, when you feel like you have no one at all.

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.
