8 Frequently Asked Questions You Only Get As A Twin

Fun fact about me - I have a twin brother! In honor of National Twin Day which occurs during the first weekend in August each year, I decided to answer some of the most frequently asked questions my brother and I have received about being a twin.

1. Can you feel when the other is hurt?

Too bad that this is just a myth. We swear we've had moments when we're apart where we feel like something is wrong with the other twin and had been right, though.

2. Who is the oldest?

Does this matter? (Although when I want to use the fact that I was born three minutes before my brother against him, then yes, it does.) We've also been asked which of us is smarter... we'll let you decide.

3. Can you read each other's minds?

We like to think so. This question makes us feel like superheroes, which we totally are.

4. Are you identical?

This one just makes us laugh.

5. Do you look alike?

We are twins, remember? Our blue eyes and matching hair color don't get overlooked.

6. Do you get along?

All siblings fight, and my twin is no exception. (We also have two younger sisters who join in.)

7. Are you close?

It's hard to be together for almost twenty years and not be. The longest we were ever apart was when the two of us left for college last year. It was hard at first but I soon realized he was just a phone call or short drive away. College definitely helped us gain more independence as well, but nothing can break that twin bond.

8. What's it like being a twin? Do you like it?

This question is tough to answer. Being a twin really is a lot of fun. Having someone by your side from the start is something that not many people get to experience. It's a pretty special thing to be and I wouldn't change it!

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.

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.
