An Open Letter To My Little Sister Who Is Also My Role Model

Not only are you one of my biggest role models, you are my best friend.

An Open Letter To My Little Sister Who Is Also My Role Model
Cassie Nichols

Dear Sis,

It isn’t said enough how much I admire you. It’s hard being the big sister at times. I put a lot of pressure on myself to be the perfect role model. I’ve had my ups and downs, and I hope you have learned from some of my mistakes. The truth is, though, you’re one of my biggest role models. Remember that we are all human. Perfection isn’t attainable, and there's no need for it to be. I see so much potential in you, and I hope you see the same potential in yourself. Never stop chasing your dreams.

I know high school can be tough, but it teaches you valuable life lessons. What you take away from these lessons will mold and shape you into who you are. Remember to keep your morals in mind and don’t feel pressured to do something just because it’s “cool” at the time, because believe it or not, high school is not the end game.

I admire your sense of compassion and love for others. You are always the first to go out of your way to help someone else and put their needs before your own. I see this first-hand at home and through the time you put in at school, assisting those with a disability.

Your work ethic is unparalleled in everything you do. I have never seen you not giving 110%, whether it is in the classroom, on a sports team, or any other challenge that comes your way. Your dedication to the people and events that mean the most to you is inspiring.

When things don’t go your way, you have started handling yourself with grace and maturity, and I couldn't be prouder. I know life gets frustrating at times, but I want you to know that at 14-years-old (and even 20, like me), you won’t have all the answers to life. Just keep your head high, be humble, and always put forward your best effort.

Although I am off at college, I want you to know you can always to talk to me. I love hearing about your life and am only a phone call away. Thank you for being my best friend and an inspiration to me. I’m so proud of who you are and what you are becoming. I know that you are growing into an exceptional young lady and I am so blessed to be able to call you my little sister.

Love always

Big Sis

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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

Small towns certainly have their pros and cons. Many people who grow up in small towns find themselves counting the days until they get to escape their roots and plant new ones in bigger, "better" places. And that's fine. I'd be lying if I said I hadn't thought those same thoughts before too. We all have, but they say it's important to remember where you came from. When I think about where I come from, I can't help having an overwhelming feeling of gratitude for my roots. Being from a small town has taught me so many important lessons that I will carry with me for the rest of my life.

I can't say "thank you" enough to express how grateful I am for you coming into my life. You have made such a huge impact on my life. I would not be the person I am today without you and I know that you will keep inspiring me to become an even better version of myself.

Waitlisted for a College Class? Here's What to Do!

Dealing with the inevitable realities of college life.

Course registration at college can be a big hassle and is almost never talked about. Classes you want to take fill up before you get a chance to register. You might change your mind about a class you want to take and must struggle to find another class to fit in the same time period. You also have to make sure no classes clash by time. Like I said, it's a big hassle.

This semester, I was waitlisted for two classes. Most people in this situation, especially first years, freak out because they don't know what to do. Here is what you should do when this happens.
