16 Things That Would Happen If My Sister Didn't Exist

You’re someone I’m grateful for every single day, sis.

313

Sisters are annoying. In fact, there are many days we argue. Yet, more days than not, my sister is my best friend. I get to go through life with her right by my side. Through all the fights about clothes, the stealing of my dry shampoo, and all the other times you simply get on my nerves, I love you. I never want to experience life without you, because these things will happen.

There would be no one to hype up

Tiffany Searles

When good things happen, you’re the first I tell. When good things happen to you, I’m the first to hype you up. I’m so proud of everything you do. You are wonderful and perfect.

The house would be quiet 

There would be no guitar strings strumming along to Aerosmith. There would be no laughter echoing in the hallways or singing in the bathroom. It would be too quiet without you. I would rather have us bickering.

The bathroom would be an absolute disaster

Hannah Porter

Let’s admit it, one of us is the “clean freak”

There would be no one to steal my food

Yes, those are my leftovers in the fridge. Yes, that's my ice cream.

I wouldn’t have grown up with my best friend

Hannah Porter

Imagine living in the same house as your best friend for your whole childhood and young adulthood (and possibly adulthood too if I don't get my life together).

There wouldn’t be any 2 a.m. conversations

You're there for the 2 a.m. conversations when I'm upset. You're the one I reach out to when I'm stressed (or the one I take out my stress on, my bad).

There would be no one to blast music with in the car

Giphy

You're my forever favorite car-singing partner.

There would be no random check-ins. 

Thank you for just checking up, even if I get angry. I appreciate you.

There would be no one trying to tell us apart.

Hannah Porter

"OMG are you, twins?!" "Oh, I thought you were your sister.." and then you get the "Wait...you're related?".

We are not twins. We may look alike, but we are not twins.

I would probably have all my clothes in my own room.

Giphy

My shirt is probably in your hamper.

Also, I wouldn’t have a second closet (AKA your room)

Your shirt is also probably in my hamper (or floor).

There wouldn’t be anyone to secretly text at parties

Giphy

Because when shit goes down, we shit talk.

There wouldn’t be anyone to freak out with me when something good happens

You are always there to celebrate with me. You are always the first to smile and congratulate me. You are my biggest cheerleader and I will always be yours. For every accomplishment and for every milestone, I will be there.

There would be no food dates

Hannah Porter

You're always the one to suggest food with me (not complaining).

I wouldn’t have my own personal photographer (or hair stylist, or makeup artist, or event planner) 

I take for granted how much you do.

There would be no you, and that is something I honestly couldn’t live without.

Cary Porter

My sister is my best friend. Even though it might not seem like it some days, she always will be. I still check to see if you got home at night. I still gossip about boys with you, even though we are way past 16 years old. You will be my maid of honor when I get married, and I will be your first drunken speech at yours. My children will have the absolute best aunt in the world. Thank you, for being you. I never want to experience what life would be without you.

May Is Mental Health Awareness Month, A Reminder We Need Even More In Quarantine

You're going through something brand new — that's worth talking about.

May is Mental Health Awareness Month. This isn't new to 2020, but oh man, if we ever needed a reminder about the importance of mental health, now is the time. With different states all over the place in regard to stay-at-home orders, phased reopenings, and a "new normal," we're experiencing conflict, fear, changes, and unknowns that can easily trigger mental struggles we already have or spark feelings we've never had before. Yes, May is always Mental Health Awareness Month, but in quarantine, that need for positive mental health is taken to a whole new level.

These 11 Face Masks On Etsy Support Small Businesses While Fighting The Spread Of Coronavirus

We're staying safe as states start lifting lockdown guidelines.

I, like most people who have had the luxury of being able to stay at home during this time, haven't spent much time outdoors at all. But when I do brave the great outdoors for a walk or to get to the grocery store, you won't find me without a mask.

My family and I were lucky enough to have family friends who were sewing some and had extras to give to us, but most of my friends and loved ones outside my immediate family have had to order some (or make a makeshift one out of scarves or bandanas).

13 Reasons We're Using Quarantine As The Ultimate Excuse For Online Shopping This Month

The one thing we haven't distanced from is our bank account.

Throughout quarantine, I've been FaceTiming most of my friends in a full turtleneck or the go-to cozy sweater I keep wrapped around the chair in my room. Either way, I always have tea in my hands to keep myself warm — till this past week.

For most of the country who hasn't had the luck of quarantining in 90-degree weather on their family's lake house or with a backyard pool, things began to change this month. Our favorite shows came out with summer seasons, the sun came out, and we started spending more time outside.

I Sat Down (Virtually) With Morgan Wooten To Talk About Coronavirus's Impact On The Wellness Industry

Just because coronavirus has greatly impacted the wellness industry doesn't mean wellness stops.

Morgan Wooten

If you're anything like me, your weekly fitness classes are a huge part of your routine. They keep me fit, healthy, and sane. Honestly, these classes help my mental health stay in tip-top shape just as much as they help my physical health.

Due to the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic, gyms and fitness studios are facing temporary closure. Yes, this means my personal routine is thrown a curveball, but this also means the wellness industry is one of many that is looking at unemployment and hardship. Do I miss my Monday spin class? Of course. But do the wellness professionals whose worlds were flipped upside down have a lot more to overcome than a slight change of routine? Absolutely. Thankfully, if anyone can prove the ultimate flexibility, it's the wellness industry.
