When You Give A Girl A Cousin

You are giving her much more than it seems.

When You Give A Girl A Cousin
Kaylee Clever

There will be a lot of things that change throughout your life but one thing is certain; your forever bond with your cousins will never change.

You give her lifelong best friends

Need I say more?

You give her travel buddies

This past summer we went on a road trip from Chicago, Illinois to Clearwater Beach, Florida, and boy am I grateful I had them to keep me company!

You give her siblings

More specifically, for those who are an only child.

You give her endless laughs

You never seem to be surprised at the funniest things that they do! After all, they most definitely learned it from you.

You give her, her biggest fan

One of the best parts about having a close immediate family is being able to be there for most, if not all, of their extracurricular activities and sports events.

You give her partners in crime

Having a cousin means there will always be somebody there who has your back, unconditionally.

You give her somebody to give all of her old clothes too

This means a lot of Victoria's Secret Pink sweatshirts, t-shirts, purses, and anything else they want, really.

You give her somebody who understands

Whether it's our family, friends, or anything in between, if there's anything I understand, it's what you're going through. I've been there, too.

You give her somebody to play with

Growing up you may have even used your baby cousins as your own dolls, with major precaution of course.

You give her memories that last a lifetime

From vacations, sleepovers, and holidays, there is nothing you value more than time spent together.

Having a cousin is the best gift a girl could have. Having four of them is the biggest blessing I could have ever received.

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.

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.
