Lessons From My Little Sister's Life

No bond will ever compare to the bond between two sisters.

Lessons From My Little Sister's Life

No bond will ever compare to the bond between two sisters. It’s special, whimsical, and filled with just the right amounts of both sugar and spice. And while I’m sure brothers are cool and all, no one will ever so fully understand our hearts the way our sisters (or sister-like figures) do.

Here’s to someone I’ll always love, root for, and hopefully be there to encourage. To someone whose heart is wider than the seas and whose ability to uplift my spirit will always be an irreplaceable gift. To the girl that stole mom’s attention and my clothes, and to the keeper of all of my favorite memories— I hope she always know that although I feel like it’s my job to help guide her along her way, I’ve been listening.

Sometime during the evolution from making mud pies to real ones, she’s taught me some things I’d like to share. That being said, I hope you can relate to some of the truths that my (forever “little”) love has taught me, in this list of Lessons From My Little Sister's Life.

1. Never apologize for being yourself. You were created wonderfully and uniquely, and you’re not meant to fit anyone else’s mold.

2. Don’t go through life unsatisfied. In the end, you’ll realize that the journey counts as much as the destination. If you spend every moment waiting in tomorrow, you’ll miss out on the joys of today.

3. Life is apparently too short to wear matching socks.

4. Love deeply. Parent, friend, sibling, teacher, pet... dare to care for others above yourself.

5.Give second chances. No one ever gets everything right the first time.

6.Cuddle blankets and small animals. No matter who you are, you’ll be all the better for it.

7.Reading a book is one of the most educational ways to spend free time. It’s also fun to go on entire adventures without leaving your bed.

8.Girls can do cool stuff, too.

9.God’s handiwork is evident in plain sight.

10.No amount of makeup, wardrobe, good deeds or febreze can cover up an ugly heart, and in the same way, these things don’t increase the value of a beautiful soul. A beautiful soul speaks for itself.

11.You can always get up early tomorrow.

12.Yes, you do need that extra piece of bacon on your breakfast plate. No, you don’t have to pair it with a fruit cup if you don’t want to.

13.It’s good to be passionate about a few fine things in life.

14.Always look for the best in others; you’ll find the world to be much more beautiful that way.


Dear Sister,

You have shown me what living out scripture looks like.

1 Timothy 4:12 says,

“Don't let anyone look down on you because you are young, but set an example for the believers in speech, in conduct, in love, in faith and in purity.”

Thanks for being my example, for always choosing sunshine, and for brightening my days. Thanks for being you, and for blessing me. Where would I be without so patient a teacher?

Bruce Springsteen's Top 7 Lyrics

Everything Bruce says in his classic rock songs.

Anyone who was born and raised in New Jersey (or anywhere really) knows of Bruce Springsteen, whether or not they like him is a whole other situation. I hope that his hundreds of classic rock songs and famous high energy performances, even in his sixties he can put on better concerts than people half his age, are at least recognizable to people of all ages. Love him or hate him (I identify with the former) you have to admit that some of his songs and interviews have inspirational quotes and lyrics.

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

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.
