Right now, you're packing your suitcase and asking me advice on what you should and shouldn't bring on vacation. It's finals week, which means in just a few short days, we will both be saying goodbye to State College. Another semester down in the books.

Many people don't know Jul without Aub, or Aub without Jul. Probably because we've been a package deal ever since summer session. I feel like I've known you for a lifetime, so how is it that 2016 was only two years ago?

It's funny because we both get randomly sappy and emotional in person, but on the internet, we love a good roast. I promise I won't do that right now though (maybe).

How can I not be emotional though? In less than a month, I will be living halfway across the world without my sister.

Although I know our random FaceTime's won't come to an end, they will never amount to the past six semesters. As cliche as it is, you've truly been there for me through the thick (thicc) and the thin. Through ugly crying, to weird dancing, to laughing until we grew abs.

I will forever be in awe of how the universe works, bringing people together in the most unexpected ways (thank you, Facebook).

As sad as it will be to part ways for the spring, nothing makes me more excited than the year ahead, when you, Paige, and I will all be living under one roof. For every time I get upset or homesick, I know there will be a hundred happy memories to come.

I just tried to think of some things that I won't miss (to make us less miserable) and I couldn't think of anything. I'll even miss driving in the minivan together, hearing everything through the walls, and getting roasted. You mean so much to me that I'd even kill a cricket spider for you.

Sometimes when people go away for a little while, they worry about how things will change while they're gone. They worry that things may be different when they come back. But those thoughts have never crossed my mind.

We've gone summers and breaks without seeing each other before and we always pick up right where we left off. The only thing that will be different this time is that we won't be rooming together for a semester. But that's nothing we can't handle.

I can't wait to get your daily calls, Snapchats, and funny memes. You're like a sister to me and I'll love you always.

Until senior year,

Jul
