Growing up in a household with my father, mother, and older brother has provided me with an immense amount of life lessons and learning opportunities. All of these experiences gave me a new and improved outlook on life as a whole. For instance, I learned that if work is not put into something, nothing will get accomplished. I also obtained knowledge about what the difference between right and wrong is and what to do or say when put into a particular scenario.

My mom and dad definitely prepared me for all the mature, adult-like decisions I would have to make as my future inched forward. Nonetheless, my brother also provided me with a great representation of what I desire to become as a young adult.

Honestly, if twelve-year-old me would've thought I'd be saying such nice things about my brother, she'd think I was crazy. I can't sit here and boast that my brother and I were perfect kids all the time, but I will say that as I've grown older I have appreciated him much more.

Now with jokes aside, I will say he is truly one of my biggest role models.

Obtaining the little sister role has been one of the biggest blessings God has provided me with.

I can't even imagine what my life would be like without my older brother. We have been through so much together and become closer each step of the way. I am extremely thankful for the guidance, generosity, and kindness that he has given me throughout the years.

Also, there are so many traits he has that I wish to emulate myself. He is a fantastic leader, friend, and teammate. For instance, he has a huge heart and puts one-hundred percent effort into every task he is given. I desire to attain all those traits and to become an overall better friend, teammate, and sibling in all of my future endeavors.

Now again, I'm not saying that we were the most perfect children. We definitely got on each other's nerves and tested each other's limits. Nonetheless, we made the most out of each moment we shared with each other.

I have also adored watching my brother and his wonderful wife build a life together. I have the dreams and aspirations to create a happy life just as he has done. As our lives progress, I will continue to look up to him and all that he has done for me and our family. My brother is truly one of a kind and is one of the most friendly human beings ever.

I am so extremely grateful to have the big brother that I do and I couldn't be luckier to know him.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
