8 Things Every Twin Can Relate To

It's like "Parent Trap" but absolutely nothing like "Parent Trap."

8 Things Every Twin Can Relate To
The Berlots

"Oh my God, you have a twin?" The inevitable reaction to the revelation that I do indeed have a sibling, just a sibling I share a birthday with. The faces are usually pretty funny, too, especially when my sister is standing right there and whoever is speaking thinks we're just friends who sort of oddly look alike (I'm not even lying, I've heard that before). Being a twin is kind of great (your closet automatically DOUBLES), but there are some...annoying aspects that come along with it. Regardless, there are just somethings that any twin can relate to.

1. "So can you guys, like, read each other's minds?"

By far my favorite question. No, twins can't literally read each other's minds. But we can totally read each other's minds. It kind of goes with being around someone nearly every moment of their existence.

2. Accidentally twinning is the most annoying thing possible.

After being dressed alike for nearly the first decade of your lives, your styles eventually branch out. Not to say that you don't accidentally come down the stairs and realize you both are in the exact same color scheme, or you both decided to wear those boots that were too cute to forbid one of you from buying.

3. "You're identical, right?"

Just because you're a twin doesn't mean you're identical. Though you're going to mix us up anyway, so why are we even having this conversation? I'm almost positive a psychological condition exists that renders someone unable to tell two people apart once he or she finds out said two people are related. I've seen it in action.

4. Every teacher ever messed you two up.

In one of my elementary school classes, we both had to respond to my name. And it didn't end in elementary school, or even in high school for that matter; my sister and I had the same professor for different classes and he was convinced we were the same person for the half of the semester.

5. You learned to respond to your twin's name.

It wasn't by choice, you just had to do it after the 100th time correcting someone.

6. Sharing everything.

A birthday, classes, probably a room. Needless to say, when everyone was freaking out about having to share a room for the first time in college, you were already a seasoned pro.

7. "Which one is the evil one?"

I'm sorry, do you have a particularly evil sibling you'd like to share with the audience? No? Wow, neither do I.

8. You've got a built-in best-friend for life.

They'll drive you crazy sometimes, but you can't imagine life without them.

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. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
