No Matter How Many Friends I Gain, My Sister Will Always Be My Favorite One

When they said "Sisters are a gift from God," they weren't kidding.

No Matter How Many Friends I Gain, My Sister Will Always Be My Favorite One
Personal

Growing up with a sister four years younger than me, we had our fair share of petty fights. For a while, I thought having a sister was the worst thing in the world. She stole all my clothes, annoyed me a majority of the time, and always wanted to be in my space.

As the first-born girl, I was always jealous of my little sister for getting the most attention and taking my throne.

She's the baby of the family, so of course, it always seemed that everyone loved her a lot more than they loved me.

But as we both grew older, I started to resent her a lot less. We became very similar to each other, and I realized that maybe having a sister wasn't so bad after all.

The more she matured, the more I realized that in reality, she's just a mini-me.

We like the same things, and we have very similar philosophies of life.

I have the privilege of being her role model; someone that she can look up to and lean on for support any time of day.

I taught her how to stand up for herself, how to appreciate and love her individuality, and how to know her worth (even when stupid boys try to make her forget it).

Sure, she really knows how to get on my nerves at times, but at the end of the day, there's no one else I'd rather spend my time with.

She's my best friend, day in and day out.

We laugh together, we learn together, we grow together.

I am incredibly proud of her and I'm stoked to have her as my best friend for the rest of my life.

I love my sister with my whole heart, and I'm so glad I was blessed with a little version of me to increase my understanding of what it truly means to be a big sister.

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.

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.
