I get asked all the time what it's like being a twin.

5 Benefits Of Having An Inseparable Bond With My Twin Brother
Leah Fryar

Once people find out that Luke and I are twins, a never-ending list of questions automatically gets thrown our way. The great part about it, though, is that I love telling others all about our experiences because we are unique. Being a twin is truly unlike any other sibling relationship that exists. There is an inseparable bond between the two of us that can't be broken. Here are just a few things I have experienced from being a twin.

1. First of all, it ended up that we are not both of one sex which means we ultimately dodged a bullet there.

I know a few sets of twins that are both girls and sometimes it isn't so pretty. Luckily, Luke and I do not have to deal with the dreaded catfights, boy drama, and being in constant competition with one another. Not having to constantly compete means that we are both able to strive toward our own goals while being supportive of another as opposed to just wanting to outperform the other.

2. Another plus is that since I am a female and Luke is a male, I get to wear as much of his clothes as I want, but not necessarily the other way around.

That means I technically have two sets of wardrobes if I ever need it! I know right, I am extremely resourceful.

3. One thing I also do is go into Kendra Scott, an awesome jewelry store, where you get 50% off a purchase during my birthday month.

I admit to kind of cheating the system by bringing Luke with me since he has the same birthday as mine and acts like he's buying stuff for a girlfriend when instead I give him money to buy a few items so I can get the discount instead.

4. I also love that I always had him so I never, ever had to do anything alone if I didn't want to.

We walked into school together, did summer camps together, and were able to keep each other entertained when we were bored. I never struggled with boredom because the two of us could always find something fun to do together. Imagine walking into school every day together with your twin so much that other students started thinking you were dating. Well, this is what ultimately happened to us before students found out we were twins so that was fun trying to explain to everyone!

5. Luke and I also get to share the same memories as one another.

Giphy

Imagine having someone who you can always say, "Hey do you remember that time we.....?" Luckily, we have gotten to share a lot of the same past experiences which means we are able to relate entirely to each other.

I was fortunate enough to have someone whom I could call my best friend and never have to worry about the friendship ending. No matter what has happened in each of our lives, we each have each other to count on. For that, I am extremely grateful to call Luke not only my twin but also my best friend.

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.

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.

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.
