When You Gain A Sister-In-Law

They may not be sisters by blood, but they are by heart.

When You Gain A Sister-In-Law
Corrine Harding

Growing up, I never had a sister or many girl relatives in my life, but I was lucky enough that my brother met you in high school. From staying up till midnight watching childhood cartoons to helping prepare for your first child, we've all grown up and closer over the past couple of years. When you gain a sister-in-law, you gain so much more than a person. I know my family and I wouldn't be the same without you.

When you gain a sister-in-law, you get the opportunity to see your sibling fall in love and find their best friend all at one time. Their happiness becomes infectious, and somehow their happiness becomes your own. With helping with your wedding planning and now watching my brother and you build a family makes me so excited for what is in store.

You and my brother taught me how a relationship should be before I was ever in one by watching you two grow from high school sweethearts to husband and wife. These life lessons have stuck with me and help me navigate my own life and relationship now.

When you gain a sister-in-law, you gain a friend that sees and knows more about your family than anyone else. They become a person that has your back and takes care of you when the going gets tough. They really aren't just a friend, your sister-in-law is your family. You can spend so much time catching up or talking about the future, no matter the conversation they are always memorable. Gaining a sister-in-law is special and honestly, one of the best things that can happen to a person.

You being added to the family has let me have a person close to my own age that understands what I am going through and vice-versa. Being close to the same age has let us bond over similar interests and get each other better than most people.

I know we may not be sisters by blood, but I am so thankful to call you my sister. You have been a part of our family for years, and you have seen it all and still, have stayed through all the good and bad. You've shown me what it's like to have a sister in my life, and I'm so excited to see what the future has in hold.

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.

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.
