When You Give A Girl An Older Brother

Thank you for being the biggest pain in my butt and my best friend.

When You Give A Girl An Older Brother

There's no doubt that having an older brother is one of the greatest gifts because of how caring, devoted, and protective they are of you (when they want to be). My mom always confesses to me how much my older brother loved me when I was born, and how excited he was to have a little sister. Yes, I had the constant teasing, but I wouldn't have had it any other way.

My brother, and I are separated by eight years which is just enough to not get on each others nerves while still being super close despite him moving away when I was only eleven. By having an older brother I will always have the support system that I need. Through high school especially my brother was a constant in helping me, and being their for me when I needed him.

When you give a girl an older brother you give her a lifelong best friend.

He will always be there for you, and never leave your side. He will always accept, and be happy when you have exciting news while supporting you through the bad times.

You give her immunity to a nasty smell

My brother played a lot of sports through high school, and always came home with the worst smell. Boys are just gross in general. He always thought it was funny to come up to me, and fart right in my face, but I still love him unconditionally.

You give her someone that will protect her

My brother always jokingly says that he will punch whoever breaks my heart, or when I was younger beat up the kids who teased me, but he would actually do it in a heartbeat. He wouldn't let anything happen to me to the best of his capabilities. It was like having a bodyguard that was just a phone call away.

I can tell you that my brother and I were not super close when I was younger, but as we've grown older I do consider him my best friend. I never realized till the last few years how important it is to have my brother in my life, and I wouldn't have had it any other way.

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.
