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 ...

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.
