I am the big sister of one little girl and four little boys. I am the oldest of all my siblings. My siblings can be very annoying, but they're also my friends. I don't know who I would be with out them. They make my days a little brighter and my heart a little warmer. I love my big sister duties, like singing bedtime songs and helping them with homework.

I haven't been able to do these things as often since coming to college. If you are a big sister like me, there are a few things about this job that are pretty great. Here are my favorite things about being a big sister.

The drawings my siblings make me

From little doodles to homemade birthday cards, I love it all.

Being my siblings' biggest fan

I go to their football games, cheer leading, band concerts, field days and school plays.

Being idolized

I can't tell you how many times I've heard the words, "I want to be like sissy." I love being someone my siblings can look up too.

Arts and Crafts

I love spending time making things with my siblings, We make gingerbread houses and homemade gifts for our family.

Having built in best friends.

No matter where life takes us, I will only be a phone call away from them. Siblings are your friends for life. You share an unbreakable bond.

I am so grateful for my younger siblings. Being a big sister is the biggest blessing I have ever been given.

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.

I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
