2) Seriously, you can never take a shower without one of your siblings coming in while you are belting out the lyrics to your favorite Jonas Brothers song.

3) You will always have people on your side no matter what. You and your siblings are like a gang, anyone who messes with one of us messes with all of us.

4) Your siblings are the only ones that can ever make fun of you and can openly laugh in your face when you make a fool of yourself.

5) That being said, your siblings will always be there to give you the harsh reality check throughout life; even if you really did not ask for it. And you never ask for it, trust me.

6) "I never got that when I was younger!" will be said multiple times to you and your parents.

7) Family dinners: you snooze or you lose. It's a fight to get to the food before anyone else can, even if it means tripping and throwing some elbows along the way.

8) If we were not fighting over getting food then it would be to get complete control over the remote. If you did not like the show that was playing then you learned to love it.

9) If mom is mad at you, you think of all of the dirt you have on your siblings that will make you seem like the better child in your mom's eyes.

10) Just one look at your siblings and you know what they are thinking. Sending an SOS look to your siblings to interrupt the conversation when at a family gathering happened a lot.

Growing up with six older siblings was something I have always been grateful for. No matter what we go through or say to each other, I knew I always had a best friend, a protector, and a role model with me every step of the way.

1. You don't have to feel guilty about flirting with customers for tips (or just for shits and giggles).

2. You can be obnoxiously flirtatious with anyone you want. You are free to be that girl that flirts with everybody and makes 'em all smile (it's especially fun when the guy is as cute as Collin Jost). No shame.

3. Making random men nervous with your superior beauty and intense eye contact just for the hell of it is really amusing and empowering.

4. No one gives two poops if ya legs are hairy (your man shouldn't either but *Kermit the Frog meme* That's none of my business)
