An Open Letter To My Big Brother

After all of the laughter, tears, wrestling matches and setting the house on fire twice (sorry Mom and Dad), it's nice to have those memories with you.

An Open Letter To My Big Brother

Dear Bro,

Even though you get on my last nerve, I wouldn't trade you for a million dollars... I think. With all jokes aside, I wouldn't trade our movie nights and late night Sonic runs for anything. Though we may not talk all the time because you work a lot and you're in college, I still consider you to be one of my best friends. I appreciate everything you have done for me, like sending me hilarious Vines and buying me food when I tell you I don't have any money, but we both know I do.

Thank you for being one of the few people willing to watch a scary movie with me and letting me turn down the volume at the really scary parts. Thank you for introducing me and teaching me how to be a boss in speech and debate. Thank you for always being there for me when I need you. Knowing that you'll always be there, whether it's to talk about some dumb boy or why AP sucks, makes life a little easier.

Sure we have our differences, and we don't have our deep conversations as often as we used to, but we never really grow apart. We'll always have that special connection.

The reason I wrote this was to tell you that I love you. Though you may not hear it that often, I do. After all of the laughter, tears, wrestling matches and setting the house on fire twice (sorry Mom and Dad), it's nice to have those memories and to know that I can look forward to having even more fun with you. You're the best brother any sister could ask for.

Make good choices,

Your Favorite Kid, Loving Sister and Best Friend

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.

Whether you met your new love interest online, through mutual friends, or another way entirely, you'll definitely want to know what you're getting into. I mean, really, what's the point in entering a relationship with someone if you don't know whether or not you're compatible on a very basic level?

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
