They truly are the best

6 Reasons Why Big Sisters make The Best Friends
Kat Phillips

I am beyond lucky to have two amazing big sisters. They have truly helped me through so much and I can't begin to imagine where I would be without them today. Here are my top six reasons why they also make the best friends, although I could think of a million more!

1. They tell you the truth even if you dont want to hear it.

They will definitely let you know if that friend or boy is no good for you and will keep telling you until you let them go.

2. They are always there for you.

Even if they think it's the most trivial problem in the world they will sit and listen to you vent for hours and heaven forbid someone ever messes with you because they have no idea what's coming to them.

3. You get to learn from all their mistakes.

You really luck out as the younger sibling in this department because their loss (or punishment) is your gain.

4. They aren't afraid to be brutally honest.

If you ask if you look bad in something, be prepared to hear the truth because that's exactly what you're going to get.

5. They know EVERYTHING about you.

This can be good or bad but honestly they know when somethings up because they know you better than you know yourself sometimes. They know your bad habits and your limits and they keep you in check.

6. They are stuck with you.

In my opinion this is the best one because no matter what you do or how many arguments you go through, at the end of the day they are still your big sister.

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. 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.
