Even if you want to kill her sometimes.

9 Things You Love About Your Little Sister

My sister's 14th birthday was on Sept. 14 (it's her golden year!). I decided to write about all of the things I love about her sassy, youthful, crazy, beautiful self. If you have a younger sister, or even if you are one yourself, you might find yourself nodding your head in agreement or laughing out loud to some of the things I'll mention below.

1. Her youth.

During these past few years, I have realized that every year, month, and day goes by faster and faster. My little sister has always been a reminder to laugh, be silly, and completely enjoy the limited days we have.

2. She can always make something funny.

From awkward family gatherings and weird dance moves to just making fun of each other, she can turn anything or any situation into something funny, ending with both of you in tears from laughing so hard.

3. Her copying is a form of love and flattery.

Yeah, it can be totally annoying that the new dress you just bought will also be in her closet when she goes out and buys it a few days later, but this is just her way of telling you that you're really cool. You know what they say, imitation is the highest form of flattery, and you can't be mad at her just because you have great taste.

4. She makes you proud.

Even though I was at boarding school and now college for some essential years as my sister was growing up, she has never failed to make me proud. Yes, I cried more than my mom on her first day of high school.

5. She's your partner in crime.

When teaming up on your other sibling(s) or against your parents, she will always have your back. Your smarts from being older and her playing the "cute card" is the ultimate duo for manipulating your parents.

6. Anything can be an adventure.

Her imagination makes nothing boring. Enough said.

7. Never-ending conversations.

Three hour FaceTime calls when you're apart and sleepovers at home are the norm. How else are you supposed to tell each other everything about everything?! She's your best friend and number one confidant.

8. It's impossible to stay mad at her.

No fight ever ever lasts more than a few minutes. One of you goes upstairs, sits on your bed for five minutes, realizes you're bored, and then asks the other to hang out. It's a continuous, loving cycle.

9. Reuniting is always exciting!

Whether you haven't seen her from a few days while visiting friends in the summer or for a whole semester at school, seeing her is always the best feeling in the world.

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.

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.
