8 Things My Little Sister Says That Make Me Nostalgic

What's worse than seeing the innocence that you once had in a reflection?

8 Things My Little Sister Says That Make Me Nostalgic
Delly Chollet

As we grow, we realize that the world is not what we thought when we were young and oblivious. My little sister says things that make me wish I was still 7-years-old and I wish that I could keep her at that age and that innocent forever.

1. "When I grow up, I want to be a princess."

I mean come on. I can't just tell her, "You need to go to college, get good grades, do your résumé and keep it on one page, apply for internships with a different cover letter every time and still find time to be happy."

2. "Look!! I got $10 for making my bed! I can't wait to get an American Girl with my own money!"

You're going to have to make your bed 15 more times to be able to afford an American Girl, but God, do I wish $10 made me as happy as it makes her.

3. "My favorite thing about school is lunch and recess."

How sweet. Recess was my favorite thing too. Being able to play with my friends outside and when it was rainy, play inside ... until the chalk turned into pencils, monkey bars into notebooks and asphalt into ugly white tiles that were bargain priced and sold in bulk.

4. "I have a boyfriend, but don't tell Mommy or Papa."

When questioned further, she said that they held hands and smiled at each other all day and now they're dating. How sweet!

5. "Wait! Before bedtime I want to show you something."

When she tells me that, I so badly want to tell her to get as much sleep as she can now because in a few years, it'll catch up with her.

6. "Look at my new lipgloss! I feel like a superstar."

This one really gets me because she's just using makeup for fun, but soon it'll be a necessity of her professional and social life.

7. "Check out where my elf on the shelf is today!!!"

Little does she know that I moved it and that I feel so guilty for playing along, but damn that's going to hurt when she finds out. Also, basically about every other fictional character.

8. "I can't wait to go to the zoo today."

I don't mean to get all activist here, but she might not be excited to see the most interesting animals in the world when she finds out how they got there and what is done to them.

So in conclusion, all I have to say is ...

Love Lost

Being the girl that is falling for the boy is never easy.

Love Lost

You constantly text my phone telling me that you want to see me and hang out, even though we may not have sex we cuddle and that’s intimacy in its own. I’m tired of buying you food and being there for you like a girlfriend when you consistently tell me you aren't ready for a girlfriend. I am constantly feeling I’m getting slapped in the face because I’m doing all these things and getting nothing in return. Every day I feel myself liking you more which is just crazy because why would I even waste my time liking someone there isn’t a future with. I just want you to be honest with me and with yourself, tell me how you feel from your heart, stop just saying you aren’t ready. You are wasting time telling me you aren’t ready because while you are “getting ready” some guy somewhere else is telling me that he likes me and thinks I’m beautiful and wants to date me. I’m not asking for much, but I at least want exclusivity because you ask me for all these things but in return you give me nothing.

Pretty Little Liars

However, even though I loved the fact that the books and the show are starkly different, there are simply just some ways in which the books are much better. Let's take a look:

To The Girl In The Back Row

I just want you to know you are loved. You are loved so very much.

To The Girl In The Back Row

Recently I was blessed to be a counselor at a wonderful camp, secluded in a cornfield somewhere in Virginia. I consider myself to be a seasoned camp counselor, as I have not only been a camper for most of my life but have been privileged enough to work multiple camps with all kinds of different facilities. I have worked camps with multi-thousand dollar facilities, with zip lines, rock walls, ropes courses, and boats. I have worked at camps with amazing water sports, camps with paintball, camps with canoes and paddle boats and floating blobs or trampolines in the middle of the water. I have worked at camps with in ground pools and camps without any pools, and even some camps with go-karts. I've had problem kids, kids who refuse to listen to anything I say, kids who sneak out after lights out to meet a significant other, and kids who are every camp counselors dream.

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

"As to the U.N., things will be different after Jan. 20th"- Donald J. Trump

Why The United Nations Is Key For The World

The United Nations (UN) has been in existence since June of 1945. Since then, the world has come together to work on and solve some of the harshest problems that face the Human Race. Be it children in societal ills like Human Trafficking, natural issues like Deforestation, or issues of extreme poverty, the UN has worked together in an attempt to make it a better place for us all. It's the only organization in the history of the world to bring people together in a willing, peaceful way; a feat that not even the League of Nations could do in the Post- WWI era. Why was it that one organization failed, and the other one is still going strong, 72 years later?
