A Thank You Letter To My Sister
Peyton Clark

A sister-bond is something somewhat unexplainable, and unbelievably special. Sister, you do more than enough for me and so I wanted to thank you by writing this for you.

You helped me find my faith


I was lost for a while. I wasn't sure what to believe in, or who to believe in. And when my world got turned upside down, you encouraged me to attend a sermon with you. From that day forward, I not only found myself, but I found God and since that day I have been forever changed, and I have you to thank for that. Without you and discovering your faith and our wonderful church, I would have never discovered my current relationship with God, I would have never discovered my passion for the worship music, and I would have never discovered the person I was always meant to be. Thank you.

You helped me discover my love for Harry Potter


One of the things that brought us closer together throughout the years is our odd, yet understandable obsession with Harry Potter… because who doesn't love Harry?! The books, the movies, and just the wonderful story that takes us to another world for just a little while, has created a bond between us that grew us closer together. You read the books growing up and encouraged me to indulge myself in this world, and without you pushing me to do so, I would have never discovered my passion for reading, writing and being creative. Plus, it is just super entertaining and I'm glad we have this to share with each other. Thank you.

You give me golden advice


If there is anyone in the world to go to for advice, it's your sister- hands down. But my sister gives superb, golden advice. It might not always be what I want not to hear at the time, but man… you are somehow always right. How are you always right?! You help ease my mind when I am in the middle of chaos, you help me rationalize when I might not be thinking clearly, and you have always helped me take the higher-road in tough situations. You helped mature me throughout the years and gave me a different perspective on life that not many people are lucky enough to say they have. Thank you.

You set a path for me


Obviously being the older sibling between us, you set a path for me. Fortunately for me, it in some situations allowed an easier path. I was allowed a later curfew, mom and dad weren't as harsh on me about grades, and the best thing of all? The path to your closet. You have great taste in clothes and fashion, you always have, and because of that, you not only set me down a path of having great taste, but you also were super fun to share clothes with… well, it was mostly just me taking things from your closet without you knowing, in hopes of beating you home and putting it back without you noticing. Needless to say, thank you.

You give me a friendship like no other


And the biggest thank you of all: our friendship. Being 6 years apart in age wasn't always easy, but now that we're adults and have grown in maturity and understanding, we have never been closer. I never laugh as hard I do than when I laugh with you, I'm never as goofy or weird with anyone as I am with you, I never share my deepest secrets than what I share with you and I never indulge in a foodie-cheat day with anyone else except you. God blessed me with you as a sister because He didn't just give me someone to steal clothes from, eat food, or excessively watch the Harry Potter movies with; He gave me you because He knew I would need a best friend. He knew I would need someone to confide in, someone to wipe my tears and help pick me up when I get my heart broken, and someone to laugh uncontrollably with. Thank you for not only being an amazing big sister, but for also being an amazing friend. I love you.

For anyone who has a sister, knows and understands how special they are. To be given a best friend the second you are born is such a beautiful, sometimes annoying, blessing. Love you long time 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.

19 Lessons I'll Never Forget from Growing Up In a Small Town

There have been many lessons learned.

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.
