Older sisters rock and younger sisters definitely benefit from their coolness.

5 Perks Of having An Older Sister That Every Younger Sister Knows To Be True
Kinsey Roberts

The life of a little sister can be one that is a breeze or a life that is filled with many challenges. You are spoiled by your parents because you are the baby of the family, but your life may be filled with rules because of something your older sister has done. While not every moment of being the younger sister is perfect, these are the five perks of having an older sister that every little sister knows to be true.

1. You have at least two closets full of clothes.

You have your own clothes and your older sister has her own clothes; HOWEVER, your older sister thinks your clothes are cuter and you think your sister's clothes are cuter. You trade your shirt from Florida for her tank top and your red dress for her shorts. You never have to worry about not having an outfit for something because between the two closets and the different styles you both have, one of you will have the clothes to create a perfect outfit.

The only part that is bad about this is when you go to college 4.5 hours away and the tank top you want to wear to the party on Thursday is sitting in your older sister's closet at home; and, the same thing goes for when your older sister needs to borrow a sweater and a vest for a function and all your fall clothes is in your closet at school.

2. You get real advice from someone who has already experienced it.

Older sisters have been there and done all that life has to offer. She gives the best advice because she has done it and she will tell you the honest truth about what she has done. She will tell you what not to do, what you should do, and what not to tell your parents about. She will tell you not to wear that dress, to not have a water bottle in the front seat, and give you some advice that you don't really need to hear sometimes. Her advice is a lot better because she knows what she is talking about and usually has funny stories to go along with the advice.

3. You have a personal chauffeur!

She got her license years before you so she ended up driving you many places over the years. Since she has been driving longer, she usually doesn't like your driving and will always drive you when you come home. For years she drove you to practices and in-town all because she had her license first. Even though she may have gotten tired of driving you places, she never complained about it as she dropped you off at yet another practice.

4. Someone gets you.

Your older sister understands who you are and everything about you because she is from the same family as you. She understands why you love country music more than anything in the world. She understands why you are sarcastic and outspoken because she knows that you are exactly like your mom. She understands why you are overly competitive. She understands why you laugh at certain things because she was there for the joke. She understands you at a level that 99.9% of people don't.

5. She's you built in best friend.

No matter what you do, she is there for you no matter what. You could do or say anything to her and she will still be there for you. You may fight with her but at the end of the day, you both forget about what you are fighting about. She is literally your other half and understands everything about you. After all, she was your first best friend.

Older sisters are some of the best people out there and little sisters owe them a lot. Here's to the awesome older sisters that have been there for us every step of the way!

New England Summers Are The BEST Summers

Why you should spend your next summer in New England.

Marconi Beach

Three years ago, I chose to attend college in Philadelphia, approximately 360 miles away from my small town in New Hampshire. I have learned many valuable lessons away from home, and have thoroughly enjoyed my time spent in Pennsylvania. One thing that my experience has taught me, however, is that it is absolutely impossible to beat a New England summer.

Yes, the math major is doing a math-related post. What are the odds? I'll have to calculate it later. Many people have probably learned about the Fibonacci sequence in their high school math classes. However, I thought I would just refresh everyone's memories and show how math can be beautiful and apply to physical things everywhere around us with stunning examples.

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.

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.
