10 Things Siblings Take for Granted
Jazmin Moore

1. The arguments

If you're a sibling, you know that arguing in inevitable. Siblings argue and there is no way of getting around that. Arguing at the time is not even the slightest bit of fun, and it makes you want to throw a chair at them sometimes, but there is nothing like arguing with a sibling. It teaches you how to share, how to be kind, how to not hit people you're mad at, and more. It is much harder to learn these things as a single child. Thank your sibling or siblings for all the wonderful arguments you had when you were younger, because you wouldn't be who you are today without them

2. Someone who is always there

Friends come and go, but family stays. No matter how stupid you are, or what dumb thing you do, your sibling is there right by your side through it all. It is easy to not acknowledge the fact that they are always there because you are just so used to it. Having someone who will always have your back is a blessing and you never want to let that go.

3.The unconditional love

No matter how many times you insult each other, or how many Barbie dolls your brother destroyed, you will always love each other. There have been so many times that I was mad at my sisters, and I swore I would never forgive them, and there I was the next day laughing with them again. There is a bond between siblings that you can't get with just anyone. That bond is special and sacred. Keep it in your heart forever!

4.The hugs

My sisters are not the lovey huggy type, but I am. Every time I try to hug my little sister, I get the stiff arm or the dead fish. It's really nice. Then on some days, she'll actually come up to ME and hug me. I cherish those hugs like no other, and you should too. This is depressing, but one day you may not be able to hold them in your arms again, so take in every second of that hug, and force them to hug you back!

5.The friendship

Your siblings are automatically in the family category, but they are actually a friend too. Anyone who deals with you and all of your imperfections and temper tantrums is a really good friend. I don't know what i'd do without my sisters and they are all my best friends!

6.The laughs

Have you ever laughed so hard you cried with your sister or brother? Or been at the dinner table with your family and make a joke that only you guys get? I have never laughed harder with anyone else. I can be as weird or crazy as I want and my sisters will just laugh about it. I just always have a genuine good time with them and that's an amazing thing!

7.The cries

There have been so many times where I have been balling my eyes out and my sisters come and comfort me or hold me until I stop crying. We may fight and may annoy each other, but no matter what we are there at the drop of a dime. There is nothing like a sibling relationship where you have someone who will go through the good and the bad times with you.

8.The competition

I don't know about you guys, but my sisters and I like to be the favorite child in the household. We try to outdo each other in everything. Having the Wii growing up was a disaster because we are all really competitive and temper tantrums would be an hourly thing. That competition, though, teaches you how to not be a sore loser, or how to be a fair winner. Of course, you may still be a sore loser with them still, but hey, you still learned.

9.They know you really well

My sister know be better than I know myself. They know what I'm thinking, what I'm feeling, and more. Whenever I am about to make a decision I may regret, they sit there and play the devil's advocate. They know when you're not being yourself and easily can call you out on it. You always need that person in your life that will check you and keep your head straight.

10.Secret keepers

I don't know who else I would talk to or tell my secrets to if I didn't have my sisters. They are people I can trust with anything and it is always good to have someone to talk to about things you don't feel comfortable talking to with anyone else. Some friends will do this, but most of the time secrets are leaked, but not with siblings. We protect each other and trust each other with everything.

I love having siblings and having a relationship with all of them is a blessing. If you don't have that great of a relationship with them, try to build one and I promise you won't regret it!

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

It will be okay, eventually.

A Letter To My Heartbroken Self

Breakups are hard. There's nothing comparable to the pain of losing someone you thought would be in your life forever. Someone who said all the right things at the right times. Someone who would give you the reassurance you needed, whenever you needed it. And then one day, it just... stops. Something changes. Something makes you feel like you're suddenly not good enough for him, or anyone for that matter.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.
