An Appreciation Post To My Brother

We've been through it all. The good, the bad, the ugly. I hope I can find the words to actually put into words, and symbolize what this human being truly means to me.

An Appreciation Post To My Brother
Abrielle Tucker

If you know my brother, you know his personality is nothing short of always a good time. He's the life of the party, a true comedian with a big heart. I can't even begin to explain the gratitude I have knowing he is my brother.

From a young age, my brother and I would fight as if we had just been put in a gauntlet to decide who would come out victorious, but when the going got rough, we were always there to cover each other's backs.

There was a time when we were younger, and we had been playing on this random playground for hours. This place had a bathroom, but they were always locked. I can't remember if my brother had made me laugh or if I had just accidentally done it, but I wet myself. Bad.

As soon as it happened, I was mortified, but my brother stood in front of me under the playset until it dried. I remember feeling so lame for being the girl that wet herself, but ultimately, no one really saw me that day because of my brother standing in front of me.

There was another time where we ended up walking 6.2 miles after trying to go to a party. I wanted to go home, but we were too afraid to have our parents come back and pick us up. We walked in the dead of winter through the brisk night air, all because I wanted to be difficult. I swear, we still plan on getting 6.2 tattoos.

I'm so lucky to have the brother that I have. One of my closest friends has a brother that would put her through hell. If he had seen that she accidentally wet herself, I think he would probably laugh at her instead of standing there with her to make her feel better. My brother is definitely one of my best friends, and I tell him more than some of my girlfriends.

We were sitting on our deck this past summer just exchanging the things we've done this past year, and then randomly, we got into talking about the way that we are as people. It was honestly amazing to hear because if we weren't about two years apart, you would probably think that we're twins.

I always talk about how lucky people with siblings are, you know. It's like you're automatically brought into this world with permanent best friends. I'm so lucky enough to have three, and two angels, too.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Fibonacci Sequence Examples: 7 Beautiful Instances In Nature

Nature is beautiful (and so is math). The last one will blow your mind.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

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.
