A Thank You Letter To My Big Sister

Thank you for making me the person I am today.

A Thank You Letter To My Big Sister
Elijah White

Dear Big Sis,

Thank you for always being there for me, ever since I was born. I know that no matter what has happened between us or what is going on, I can always count on you to be there for me. No matter what the time is or where I am, I know that you are just a call, text, or drive away. We've been there for each other through everything, and I mean through everything. We have been through hell and back, and you held my hand the whole way.

Thank you for being my partner in crime. We always know how to bring the life to the party. We can cut up, and it seems that we always know what buttons to push on Momma and Daddy. We always know just what to say to each other and others to make their day better. We try to make people happy, because we know that no one deserves to be down.

Thank you for always helping with my problems. I know that being a teenager comes with several problems that may not seem like huge issues, but they are at the time. And since you're older than me, I know that you are the person to ask about those issues since you have quite a bit of experience with them. Even if it was just something about if my outfit looked too dorky or if it was trigonometry, I knew that you'd have the answer (or you knew someone who would).

Thank you for always having faith in me. When I said that I wanted to go a state school three hours away, you told me to follow my dreams. When I said that I got a gig with writing, you told me that you were so excited and had faith that I would do fantastic. You have always told me to do what I want as long as it made me happy, and I believe that is the best advice that anyone has given me.

Thank you for just being my sister. That's a tougher job than it may seem. You have to look out for me, which is tough. I know sometimes I can be seen as that annoying younger brother, but most of the time we get along. We have our ups and our downs, but I know that you will be here for me no matter what. And vice versa, I will be there for you when you need me. Although, I'm pretty sure that you can take care of yourself by now. I just wanted to thank you because I don't say it enough. And you deserve my gratitude for being the best sister in the whole damn 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.

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.
