Open Letter To My Brother-In-Law
Katie Cooper

Having a brother in law is one the best things in life. One reason is because now I don’t have to take care of my sister anymore. Even though it was fun and frustrating at times, I get to hand off my sisterly duties to someone else. We both know how lucky you are for getting the amazing women that I call my big Sis. You are the one who will take care of her from now on and love her unconditionally. There are so many things I want to thank you for because you are truly one of the biggest role models in my life.

Thank you for loving my sister. She is my sister so of course we fight and sometimes we do not get along, but she is the most important person in my life and I would do anything for her. With that being said, it was hard for me to give her away to some guy. I am so lucky that it is you though, you take care of her and calm her down when no one else can. We both know my sister, so we know sometimes she might not be so lovable but you make sure she feels loved and has everything that her heart desires.

Thank you for becoming the big brother that I have always wanted. I never refer to you as my “brother in law” because you are not that, you are my big brother. You treat me like a little sister and that is one of my favorite things about you. You fit into our little family so well and I could never see you as anything but my big brother. You have become another man that my future husband will have to go through and I love that!

Thank you for caring about me. You make sure that I am doing okay with everything in my life and you always let me know that you are there if I ever need help. You care for me like a little sister and whenever you are joking around with me, I know you are doing it because you care and love me.

Thank you for treating my best friend like a princess. She is like any other girl and she knows what she wants and what she likes. You are so good with her though, you set boundaries and make sure that she is doing what is right. While saying that you also spoil her with everything she wants, such as the smallest things like chickens to the biggest things like her designer bags.

Thank you for always supporting me even when you think I am being crazy. You always know what to say to me so that I feel pretty and confident. Even if no one else likes my crazy shoes, you make sure to tell me that you like them and that I can pull them off. You are always on my side and I could not thank you enough for that.

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.

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.
