Happy National Siblings Day

Hands down, my sister is the best sister to ever exist

Happy National Siblings Day
Ruth Crepeau

Happy National Siblings Day! Today is a day where everyone can brag that their siblings, despite the arguments and annoying habits, and how they have the best sibling(s). But we all know I have the best sister in the world. I mean, c’mon, no one can compete with her!

She is the best listener. She patiently sits through all my rants, and even semi-pays attention when I need to vent about problematic faves from books I’m reading or shows I’m watching. She, in turn, will share her problems with me, because she knows she can trust me and give her a reality check if she needs one (whether she intended that or not).

She is so fashionable, which is the complete opposite of me. I appreciate how she cares to be put together, even if she feels crappy on the inside. Some days, lookin’ cute will bring her mood up even if that isn’t how she started her day. I like T-shirts and jeans, no matter how I feel. But when I want to dress up, I know I can text her for advice. Sometimes I really do question how we grew up to be two completely different people despite having the same parents and upbringing. But I am also grateful for the differences because without them I’m pretty sure we would be sick and tired of each other’s same old selves pretty darn quick.

She is headstrong, which can get her into trouble, but it is also what keeps her grounded and determined to accomplish what she has set her mind to. Even as an older sibling, I need some life advice and I know I can turn to her and she will lay it all out there with no sugar coating. She will be going to amazing places, but I know that she will always be there for me, and I for her. I could not have asked for a better person to fight, cry, laugh, live, and talk with.

I could probably end up writing a medium sized novel about all of the great (and not-so-great) qualities my sister has. In summation, though, every one of those qualities, good and bad, is what makes her so special and unique and irreplaceable. She is my biological best-friend and no one’s sibling can beat her.

Black Friday: Explained

Time to question this unofficial corporate holiday.

On a personal level, Black Friday has always confused me. Everyone just ate a ton and spent all day with their families—why would we want to go out and vigorously shop, fighting crowds? I totally see why other people want to go do it, but I’ve never quite understood the concept myself. While I’ve been Black Friday shopping once or twice, I don’t get that excited about it unless it’s an opportunity to spend time with family or friends. Don’t get me wrong; I am the queen of bargains. Still, I never seem to have the energy to go out into the jungle of shoppers early the day after Thanksgiving, or even immediately after Thanksgiving dinner. Many people, though—including my loved ones—are enthusiastic about Black Friday shopping, and it seems most other Americans are the same way. So, it’s worth looking at the reasons for this commercially-driven, unofficial American holiday.

#OptOutside This Black Friday

I am opting to go outside this Black Friday, and I hope you do so as well.

Ross Woodhall

The day after Thanksgiving has always been regarded by many as the beginning of the Christmas season. While not a federal holiday, many people take off work, spend time at home with their families, and enjoy the beginning of the holiday season. This Friday off turned into a prime opportunity to begin the never-ending chore of Christmas shopping. Soon it became one of the busiest shopping days a year, which companies capitalized on by bringing the best deals of the year to this day we know as Black Friday.
