Yes, Your Sibling Should Be Your Best Friend, And If They're Not, Change It

My life would never be the same without my sister.

Yes, Your Sibling Should Be Your Best Friend, And If They're Not, Change It
Jennifer Hancock

Have you ever heard the quote that always makes its stride through countless Instagram captions,

“God made us best friends because our parents couldn’t handle us as sisters?”

Well, for my parents, they didn’t get that lucky.

My absolute best friend is my sister who is four years older than me and married.

Now, to be quite honest—we haven’t always been close. Well, not until about two years ago.

When we were younger we fought constantly. I have even found old journal entries of mine where I talked about how mean we were to each other.

At that point, I truly never expected us to be as close as what we are now.

My life seriously wouldn’t be the same without her. Truly.

In the past two years, she and I have actually become the same person, we joke about it all the time.

Because we grew up together and are pretty close in age, we slowly became very similar. It is even a joke between us that we are literally the same person (OK we are.)

We get each other's jokes and can give each other the look and laugh.

Not only does she get my normal college girl problems, she gets my family problems, too.

When I am upset about anything, I don’t have to go through other friends and explain everything. I can just tell her because she just gets it. All families go through situations, and I could never get through ours without her with me.

She honestly gives me a great role model to look up to. With her being four years older than me, when I started college, she just finished.

So going by her experiences I shaped my college life around hers. I am even attending the same university she chose.

I could go on and on about how great my sister is; I am not really here to tell you about our relationship. I want to tell you how amazing it is to have your sister (or brother) as your best friend.

To those who were blessed to have siblings, and those siblings are still around, keep them close to you. They can be your closest confidant.

When we used to fight, my mom always said to us, “You are fighting now, but later in life, you are going to need each other. You just do not realize it yet.”

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me

This one's for you, Spock.

6 Things Owning A Cat Has Taught Me
Liz Abere

Owning a pet can get difficult and expensive. Sometimes, their vet bills cost hundreds of dollars just for one visit. On top of that, pets also need food, a wee wee pad for a dog, a litter box with litter for a cat, toys, and treats. Besides having to spend hundreds of dollars on them, they provide a great companion and are almost always there when you need to talk to someone. For the past six years, I have been the proud owner of my purebred Bengal cat named Spock. Although he's only seven years and four months old, he's taught me so much. Here's a few of the things that he has taught me.

You're Your Own Best Friend

Kinder Self - Eyes

It's fun to see all of the selfies on social media, they are everywhere. I see pictures with pouty lips, duck lips and pucker lips. I see smokey eyes, huge fake lashes and nicely done nose jobs, boob jobs and butt lifts. Women working out in spandex, tiny tops and flip flops. I see tight abs and firm butts, manicured nails and toes, up dos and flowing hair. "Wow", I think to myself," I could apply tons of make-up, spend an hour on my hair, pose all day and not look like that. Maybe I need a longer stick!"

Ancient Roman Kings: 7 Leaders of Early Rome

The names and dates of the reigns of the first four kings, as well as the alternation of Sabin and Latin names, are more legendary than historical. The last three kings, of Etruscan origin, have an existence which seems less uncertain.

It is evident that all this is only a legend although archeology shows us little by little that these kings if they did not exist as the ancient history, describes them, have at least in the very Outlines were real as chief of a shepherd’s tribe. The period when kings ruled Rome could estimate at 245 years.
