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

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

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

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


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.


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


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.

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.
