If Your Sister Also Isn't Your Best Friend, What In The World Are You Doing?

"Isn't is great we get to be best friends for the rest of our lives?" - My little sister

If Your Sister Also Isn't Your Best Friend, What In The World Are You Doing?
McKenna Tunney

Growing up my younger sister and I would fight basically more than we would breathe.

She was also bigger than me, stronger than me, and the baby in the family, so she could do no wrong. She'd beat me up, and still always get her way. It's quite amusing reflecting back on our childhoods, and how much we argued over pointless things. If I'm being honest I can't remember what a single one of those arguments were about.

My mother also shared with me the importance of being close to your sisters, as she has three sisters herself. Growing up they would also fight constantly, but now they are closer than ever. I love seeing how my Mom's face lights up, and her whole demeanor is even happier and goofier than before when she's around her sisters.

Having your sister as your best friend means:

Someone is there that has seen you through all your most cringe-worthy phases, and she appreciates your glow-up more than anyone.

She's your soulmate, and she'll know when the other one comes along.

You'll have someone to talk to at any hour day or night. AKA me crawling into my sister's bed and letting all my thoughts and feelings out.

Someone to impart your mediocre wisdom upon. You don't have all the answers, but maybe you can help her skip a few of the mistakes that you've made.

You'll always have someone who's way too honest with you.

And sometimes you need that. My sister has told me I look like a straight up monster before, and that's when I know I probably should be resting, and taking care of myself better.

She's always down to do midnight donut runs, no questions asked.

Not having to explain yourself to someone, she gets it.

Going to the ends of the earth for her— going full-on mama bear if anyone tries to hurt her, and she'll for the same for you.

And lastly having your sister as your best friend is great because she's stuck with you.

As my sister, Scarlet always says, "we're gonna be best friends for the rest of our lives, how cool is that?!". Some friends you may grow apart from, your sister and you will be growing alongside each other.

Love you and can't wait for the rest of our lives together little sis (scub).

14 of the Most Revolutionary Short Films of All Time

Today's society places a ridiculous amount of importance on social media and what we see on our computer screens. Some of these short films you might have seen shared on Facebook. Some of them you may have never even heard of. Whatever the case may be, these productions have used thier position of power in our world today to spread a message. The messages vary from domestic violence, LGBTQ acceptance, self-love, the role of men in society to end the unfair treatment towards women and even the promotion of the furtherence of medical discovery in our country. Regardless of the message, each film advertises something that needs far more screen time than Victoria's Secret Fashion shows or Keeping Up With The Kardashians. Here are 14 of the best and most revolutionary short films to date:

Because the best part of flying isn't the flying.

Google Images

I’m not sure that many would consider their airport experience to be “fun.” It is either boredom or panic, layovers so long that you forget what the outside world looks like or connections that are made by the skin of your teeth. It is the decision between buying expensive food and starving; it is hunting for outlets (because the airports I’ve been in seem to have about five); it is the stress of making it through security without being that person who holds up everyone else. In short, it is stressful and time-consuming.

New millennial jargon seems to arise everyday, one of the newest being “daddy." While people have always said things like “sugar daddy" or “come to daddy" (which sounds a tad creepy to me...okay, a lot creepy), now just referring to an attractive man or one's boyfriend/husband as simply “daddy" has become the norm. *Gag*

Clarity To Confusion

How I lost my certainty of the future.

Clarity To Confusion

Last year, I knew exactly what I would be doing with my life. Not just what major I wanted, although, I did know exactly what I was going to major in during college. I went further, though, and knew exactly what I wanted to do with it. I aimed to be a book editor and use my French and English majors to go into technical editing after going to grad school. Yet this semester, disenchantment hit. I had no clue what I wanted to do with my life anymore. I still loved the idea of being a book editor. I still loved reading. I just couldn't feel any passion towards the courses I had to take this semester. They were amazing, but they didn't excite me the way courses I would love should. They didn't inspire feelings of amazement at how awesome my major is. It was then I realized maybe my major wasn't for me.

The Procrastination Station At College

We all have checked into "Procrastination Station" more than once..

The Procrastination Station At College
Achieve Center - Wendy Loewen

In high school, being a procrastinator wasn't that big of a deal in my own opinion. But coming from a school that didn't really have strict deadlines on things, meaning you basically got points for turning it in be it exactly on or before the deadline, or 4 weeks later when you realize your grade needs to be raised up. So, when I came to college, I knew it would be different. It hasn't really been hard transitioning into a good student when it comes to out of class work and projects, but it hasn't been that easy either. I will use myself for example. I am enrolled in Introduction to Public Speaking, and it's not that is a hard class, because it isn't, but I just get lost in other things and before I knew it, I had to present a persuasive speech the next day. I also realized this at about 11:15 the night before, and had about half of my outlines done, and my visual aid hadn't been started on. Though I got it done, I promised myself that I would not ever just wait until the last minute with specifically this class, but with any other class also. After that little dilemma, I decided to look for ways that I could get things done in a timely manner. So, here I have listed a few things that I now use in order to get things done before the deadline so that I do not have to rush and worry about it the night before:
