My Siblings Are The Best Thing My Parents Ever Gave Me

Coming from a middle-class family my parents always were able to provide for me and more but my siblings are the greatest gift my parents could ever give me. My 3 siblings are my best friends and I wouldn't trade them for the world.

My Siblings Are The Best Thing My Parents Ever Gave Me
Grace Jones

Growing up with 3 siblings I never knew how lucky I was. Having an older sister, a younger sister and a younger brother that were my best friends growing up is something I took for granted. It wasn't until I went to college that I learned to appreciate having siblings. I would talk to my friends that were only children and they always said how jealous they were of me that I had siblings and it wasn't until I moved away from them that I realized how lucky I am.

You always have someone to talk to about anything.

When I was in high school my mom went back to college to get her doctorate and my dad stays busy on the family farm so my siblings and I became very close because we were always together and helping one another. My siblings were the first people I talked to about my day when I came home from school. My older sister was someone I could talk to about my boy troubles or when I needed advice. My younger siblings and I bonded over doing homework together every night and always cooking dinner together. I am so lucky to have siblings that I can talk about anything with.

You always can count on them to brighten your bad days.

My two younger siblings are the funniest people you will ever meet. No matter what I was going through in my life I could always count on them to cheer me up. We would stay up way past our bedtimes watching funny videos until we cried from laughing so hard or playing just dance making fun of one another because we're terrible dancers. When I went to college I missed these times with them, being 3 hours away I couldn't just come home and do these things with them anymore but they still make sure to send me funny memes or videos to make me laugh throughout my day.

You always have someone to experience things with.

My favorite memories with my siblings are from Christmas Eve when we would all stay in the same bedroom and stay up all night listening for Santa and not being able to sleep because we were too excited to open our gifts in the morning. Whether it was sitting through an awkward family dinner or going to new places, I was never alone in how I felt and who I got to share these memories with. Our mornings going to school, listening to our favorite songs, and singing at the top of our lungs is one of the things I miss most about my childhood with them.

You always have someone to do things with.

Whether it was playing baseball in our back yard, playing Wii in our living room, or having someone to play with on the beach my siblings and I are always doing something together. In the summers, my siblings and I would jump waves at the beach together and swim together every day in the pool always making new games and new memories together. Now that we're older and all live in different cities, it is hard to be together as much as we like but when we do get together we still have a blast.

As I get older and I start to plan my future, there's not a doubt in my mind that I will give my future children siblings. My siblings are the funniest, kindest, and most amazing people I have ever met. As we're getting older, I have an amazing brother in law and nephew that are also my best friends. I cant wait to see everything my siblings accomplish and to make more memories with them!

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.

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.
