Having a twin brother has come with so many ups and downs throughout our past 20 years of life. We fought like cats and dogs for most of our life, but once college hit, we became close, and I wouldn't have it any other way. You don't have the same relationship as boy-girl siblings because being a boy-girl twin is 100 times better.

1. You had separate birthday cakes every year growing up. 

2. You constantly argue over who's the older twin. 

3. You thank God you never had to share a room with each other. 

4. You never really had twin sense... 

5. ...But you could still read each other's mind every once in a while. 

6. You got to play with both boy and girl toys at the same time. 

7. You are constantly surprised no one died based on how many times y'all fought. 

8. You never had to worry about someone else stealing your clothes. 

9. You may or may not have the same high-pitched voice. 

10. Being the older twin or younger twin always came with a different set of bragging rights. 

11. You have a pretty good idea of what you would look like as the opposite gender. 

12. You almost always had someone to play with. 

13. You wouldn't want to have any other sibling in the world. 

Love you, JJ.

The pandemic has been in our world for more than half of 2020 and people are still acting stupid. If anything, they're getting stupider. They think that the virus is gone. It's not. Stop going to frat parties. Stop trying to go places without a mask. I wish things were normal, too. They're not.

In the summer of 2017, 20 type 1 diabetics completed a 10-week 4,000+ mile bike ride from New York to California. They biked against the advice of doctors, family, and friends.

Seasonal Depression Is Real And It Deserves Our Attention

Check in on your friends throughout the winter season, it can be brutal.

As we transition seasons and enter the last few months of the year, some are feeling grand about this natural shift. But that doesn't mean everyone is thrilled that the weather is cooling down — it's important to extend your knowledge to the phenomenon that is seasonal depression.

The lack of sunlight during the later seasons of the year, beginning with autumn, triggers a state of depression for about 15% of the population. This results in the lack of serotonin provided by the sun, causing it to be hard for some to do a lot of the things that would normally be deemed simple tasks to do during the earlier times in the year like getting out of bed, showering, going to work/school, etc. A major difference is an intense need for sleep similar to a hibernation effect.
