3 Life Rules From A Big Sister To Her Little Brother

I remember holding you for the first time, I remember mom and dad coming home with you, and I remember how much of a pain you were. You are still a pain. But I would not trade you for anything in the entire world, because you are my little pain. I have watched you go from a small annoying toddler to the young man that you are today. Although there have been some rough patches along the way, you have made me the proudest big sister ever.

Within the next couple of years, you are going to graduate from high school and move off to college, you are going to become a real adult. But I want you to know that I will always be there for you, and I am only a phone call away. I know I joke with you about not liking you, but if you really need me, I will drop everything and come to your side.

As your big sister, I feel the need to always be there to protect you.

I am writing this so that you can know that I do love you. I probably love you more than anything or anyone else. You annoy me non-stop but I would have it no other way. Let's be honest, with both annoy each other because that is how we show we care. Why else do you think that when I come home, you are one of the first people I want to see? Just don't tell mom and dad.

As you grow into more of an adult, there are a couple things that I want to tell you. So since this is coming from your big sister, I hope you take what I tell you serious.

1. Never change who you are for anyone.

You are amazing and funny, so don't let anyone tell you that you need to change. Just stay you.

2. Have fun.

Be adventurous, take risks. Some of my greatest memories are those that are not planned and that come from spontaneous trips.

3. Surround yourself with good people.

As you grow up, you will figure out quickly what friends are going to be there for you in the long run. So make sure that you surround yourself with those who are going to build you up and not tear you down.

I know you hear all three of these things from me constantly but I thought that if I wrote them down then you will always remember them. If you don't remember everything I say then at least remember that more than anything I love you. And I am always going to be there for you. I can't wait to be home with you for an entire summer and I hope you are ready to make some more memories together. Love you, little buddy!

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.

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.
