Love, Your Maid Of Honor

To my sister and best friend.

Love, Your Maid Of Honor

To my sister,

We did not get to choose to enter each other's lives. But we did choose to take this luck and turn it into a deeper friendship. And for this, I will be forever grateful. Honestly, we are very different people. If I'm being honest, we are about as different as it gets. And I love you for that. You teach me a new perspective and allow me to understand multiple viewpoints.

Being the younger of us, the knowledge I gain from you in never-ending. Partially because you have to go through everything from bras and proms to testing mom and dad's limits as the trial, but also because you are the smartest and most driven individual I know. I have gained an appreciation for life and a strong work ethic by growing up under you.

You are strong; stronger than you let on. You conquer anything that is put in your way with ease, something I work to emulate. And you are passionate. I strive to be as kind-hearted and empathetic as you.

Growing up watching you, I have had a built-in role model. Between finding ways to convince Mom to let me do something she normally wouldn't, or getting through mental obstacles and trials, I make each move with you in mind.

Thank you for letting me (kind of) steal your clothes and for always being available to listen to what I have to say. You are truly one of the kindest people I know and I just got incredibly lucky that you happened to be my sister.

So as you go and start a new life beyond the walls of the home that made us, please carry with you all that makes you, you. Continue to inspire others to be better people and never tire of making people feel heard. My future brother-in-law is incredibly lucky that he happened to get you as a wife, and when the time comes (maybe in a couple of years for Mom's sake), your children will have the best mother.

If you ever doubt yourself, look at where I am today and recognize that it is because of the path you laid out for me. And always remember that your closet is my closet and my closet is your closet.

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.
