An Open Letter To My Younger Sister
my mother

Dear sister,

When I was younger, I always prayed for a sister. I wanted someone that I could relate to, someone who looked up to me, someone I could boss around. And when you were born, I got most of that. You’re too hardheaded to let me boss you around, but besides that, you’re a pretty cool younger sister.

Even if I don’t say it enough, you’re a cool kid. I know you’ve gone through tough things in your life, but you try to not let it get the best of you. Instead, you try to use it to help others. You’re very generous to the people you care about, and I know that they appreciate it a lot. You’re strong and you fight for the things you believe in. You’re also very beautiful, both inside and out, both with and without makeup. There are many things about you that are great and that I’m excited to see grow and flourish in the years to come.

When you ask me for advice, I feel like I’m finally doing something right and like I could help someone at last. I feel like I’m doing this big sister thing right somehow. I love talking to you and hearing about your life, which, sadly, is probably more interesting than mine most of the time. You always make me laugh with our inside jokes and even your own jokes (some of the time).

No matter what happens or how old you get, just know that I’ll be right here for you and I’ll always want the best for you. I’ll always want to protect you from the people that try to hurt you, and I’ll probably always get mad if they do hurt you. But no matter what, you’re stuck with me, your favorite sister.

I’ll always be praying for you to find the things in life that will make you the happiest and for you to keep growing in love, in faith, and as a person.

I love you,

Your Big Sister

America's biggest party schools

These are known for their lively party scenes

America's biggest party schools
Determining which schools are the biggest party schools is often subjective, but a some statistical factors you could use to make a judgement include (1) consumption, (2) drug usage, (3) strong greek life presence, (4) campus police records etc.

When a student at Auburn was recently asked, she explained: "These schools usually have, like, a super vibrant social scene, lots of Greek life (like my amazing sorority, duh!), and tons of exciting events happening all the time. I mean, we're talking about tailgates, themed parties, mixers with fraternities, and just, like, so much fun. But don't get me wrong, we still, like, study and go to class and all that. It's just that at a party school, the social life and having a good time are, like, major priorities for students."

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.
