A Letter To My Brother From Another Mother

You're the closest thing I have to a brother

A Letter To My Brother From Another Mother

Dear Brother,

We may not be related by blood, but you're the closest thing to a brother that I will ever have. You listen to me when I need advice, you tell me when I am wrong (even if I may not agree), and you're not afraid to give it to me straight. You are more real with me than most people, and I thank you for that.

I can't imagine life without you. You have given me something I've never had and that's a brother's love. We may fight like real siblings and not always see eye to eye, but know that I will always love you regardless. You mean more to me than words can describe, and I thank God every day for bringing you into my life. I may not always tell you this, but you have been a huge influence on my life and I don't know what i would do if you had not come into it.

In addition, you inspire me to be a better person. You encourage me to reach for my goals, you support me in all that I do, and you encourage me to do better when I am struggling. You make me feel like I can accomplish more than I ever could. You also aren't afraid to tell me when I do something I shouldn't be doing. Whether that be hanging out with people I shouldn't or taking a job when I shouldn't, you tell me when I am going to screw up before I even realize what I'm doing is wrong. Thank you.

You understand me. You understand where I come from when I tell you what's bothering me. Even though I may not always like your advice, I appreciate it and it's usually what I need to hear, even if I may not realize it. You help me to realize my problem and fix it. You don't judge me when I tell you about my problems, even if you find them stupid and irrelevant. You listen to me anyway because that's who you are.

I could go on and on about how much you mean to me, but this letter would be never ending if that were the case. In short, the most I can say is this: Thank you. Thank you always and forever.

Leaving My Backpack In The Library

Views about society and the stranger sitting right across from me


As a college student, my backpack is an extension of myself in many ways. It contains my notes, pens, and computer vital for my success in college. It contains the snacks and water bottle I need to survive long days on campus. It also contains the "in-case" items that help put my mind at rest if I forgot something from home: extra hair ties, masks, and that backup-backup snack.

'Venom: Let There Be Carnage' Film Review

Tom Hardy and Woody Harrelson lead a tigher, more fun sequel to 2018's 'Venom'

When Sony announced that Venom would be getting a stand-alone movie, outside of the Tom Holland MCU Spider-Man films, and intended to start its own separate shared universe of films, the reactions were generally not that kind. Even if Tom Hardy was going to take on the role, why would you take Venom, so intrinsically connected to Spider-Man's comic book roots, and remove all of that for cheap action spectacle?
