Welcome to the family

Dear future grandlittle,

If I did not get the chance to tell you yet…welcome to our sisterhood.

Most importantly, welcome to the family, our family. I am so excited to welcome you into our arms and to be able to be here for your sorority experience.

Your soon-to-be big will be the best big to you as she was the best little to me. She has qualities that push me to be a better person every day. The qualities she sees in you are what I saw in her when I first met her.

I have ten things I want to tell you as we await for your Big-Little reveal.

1. I am utterly obsessed with you.

My little chose you and loves you and so, therefore, I love you just as much. You are going to be so spoiled (in a good way) by me and your big. I spoiled your big, and you will, therefore, be spoiled.

2. I’m not that old, so we can still hang out.

I may be your grand-big, but I can still hang…most of the time.

3. Get involved with the chapter.

Being involved with the chapter brings you so much closer to the sisterhood. Whether you hold a position in the house or attend every single event, just make sure you are involved. I can’t stress how important it is. When I joined our organization my freshman year, I attended everything I possibly could. It made me realize how much I loved being a member and how I couldn’t wait to be more involved in the next three years after my freshman year.

4. Your sorority family is always here for you.

Your sorority family is here to make you feel like you are at home while in college. We are here to help you create those bonds with the sorority. We are here to support everything you and your little do together.

5. I will let you and your big blossom into the big-little relationship you wish to have.

A big-little relationship is one of the most important relationships you can have in college. I will let you and your big develop your relationship without me being around all the time. I have seen my little grow and become a wonderful woman with amazing insights on life. I want you and her to have the relationship that I have with my big and that your big and I have.

6. Your big is someone you should always go to.

My big was and is someone I could go to vent to and to talk to. Your big is someone that you should see as that person. Your big will not judge you; she will always listen to you; she is the person that you can always turn to.

7. Your big will always be your big.

No matter what happens, if you and your big have a small argument, or if you get frustrated with one another, you will get through it. Your big is your big and that is something you should always remember.

8. I hope that having my little as your big will make you fall in love with our sisterhood even more.

Your big is an inspiration to me. She shows me things that I don’t see. She shows me that the LITTLE things do matter and to appreciate everything that I have. Your big is my hero, and I hope she will be yours.

9. Your big will be your mentor, your guide, your best friend.

My big (your great grand-big) has been all three of these to me. And I can only hope that I have been that to your big. I can’t wait to see you and your big create the bonds that will give you the relationship that I have with her. You will see your big as your mentor, guide, and best friend; it’s a possibility it won’t happen right away, but it will happen.

10. Your big will love you more than anything.

Your big will love you unconditionally. You are her little, and she is your big. Your relationship is one of the most amazing and important ones in your sorority experience.

Welcome to the family, G-Little. I can’t wait to meet you.

Love,

Your future G-big

11 Struggles Girls With Curly Hair Know By Heart

No, I actually would prefer if you didn't touch my hair, complete strangler.

192
views

Curly hair, a true blessing, and a curse. Some days, your curls look great and the result, you feel great! On the flipside, though, there are those days where you run out of conditioner, your curls are all over the place, and your hair tie snaps. Here are some struggles every curly girl knows all too well.

Also, just a little disclaimer, while there are a wide variety of curls in the world. I personally have around 3B hair, and these struggles are therefore a reflection off of that experience. This may not be fully representative of someone with a different curl pattern.

1. It looks way shorter

Fun fact, if you stretch a curl out they're actually a lot longer. In effect, it takes us way longer to grow out our hair.

2. Trying to run your fingers through it

Just don't do it, your hand will get stuck, your curls will get messed up. Overall, not a good idea.

3. Waking up not so glamorous

You know how in movies the girl will wake up with silky hair that she just has to run a brush through. Yeah, can't relate. When I wake up my hair looks a little bit more like it is trying to see if it can point in every direction possible.

4. Bangs...just don't work

They'll look different everyday since your hair will curl up differently.

5. Trying to brush your hair dry

With curly hair, you can literally do nothing with it unless it's wet. Trying to braid, brush, or style it when it's dry just doesn't work out.

6. Always running out of conditioner

Using about twice as much conditioner as shampoo is just part of having curly hair.

7. Taking hella long showers

When you wash your hair, you can expect to be in there for at least half an hour. Just wetting your hair takes forever, since it seems like you have to stand under the water for ten minutes just to get your hair fully soaked.

8. So. Much. Frizz

Maybe it's slightly humid, maybe you didn't put enough product in, maybe your hair is just in a mood.

9. What even is styling?

Growing up I always had huge hair envy when girls could put their hair into cute little braids and buns. While you can put curly hair into a few styles, it's a lot harder to braid.

10. It gets caught...on everything

Sunglasses, headphones, earrings, regular glasses, zippers, bra clasps. You name it, my hair has gotten caught in it. The best part is that it loops around the offending object, and it hurts like a b#tch to tear it out.

11. Always getting told to straighten it

It's funny because I'm constantly told how people 'wish' they had my hair. Yet, guess what I usually hear right after? "Why don't you straighten your hair?" "You should really straighten your hair" "You would look so pretty with straight hair." Well first off, it takes two hours, and then top that off with the fact that a drop of humidity makes it fluff up...I think I'll take a pass.

So yeah, curly hair has a lot of problems. But you know what? People have been using curlers and getting perms all throughout history, so just think some people take hours to get what you were born with!
