10 Reasons Your Sisters Are Your Life

10 Reasons Your Sisters Are Your Life

What would I do without my sisters?

Sisterhood is a relationship in which girls within a family are assigned to be best friends until death. For the non-sister's this can be enigmatic and confusing phenomenon. Breaking apart the word sister isn't easy. It requires intense analysis, observation, and patience. However, these are the 10 reasons why the complex relationship of sisterhood makes your life that much better

1. Unlimited Wardrobe access

Your wardrobe is good. You like your closet. You can do without the left over tween clothing you exhausted in middle school, but, you’re happy. Now add some sisters into the picture. Your closet in combination with your sisters’ closet. Amazing. The variety of jeans just tripled. Options for purses? Doubled. Necklaces and earrings are at your fingertips. Now you love your wardrobe and that’s all thanks to your sisters.

2. Free therapy

Pissed at your parents, friends, or even boyfriend? Need people to vent to with detached, objective (somewhat) advice? Sisters! The perfect people to talk to about any or all adversities you face on a daily basis. They actually care so they will give you their best advice at all times. Let’s not forget the impromptu gossip sessions which always start from a nice venting session. What could be better?

3. Loyalty beyond belief

You get in an argument with your parents. Guess which side your sisters pick. Yours, of course. It’s a part of the unspoken sibling code. Even if you're wrong. They will always have your back and your side. Sisters are a highly exclusive alliance only a select few have the blessing to be a part of. Don’t take it for granted, seriously.

4. Personal Role Models

Whether you are younger or older your sisters are your role models. Each one has qualities that emulate class, femininity, and sophistication. All your sisters have amazing personalities unique to themselves. They set a standard that you look up to and want to meet. They challenge you to be the best version of yourself and always support you to be that person.

5. Your scheming buddies

Do you want to stay late after curfew? Throw a party while the parentals are out of town? You and your sisters are in cahoots. You scheme, trick and fool anyone and everyone. Together you are the ultimate trouble makers. Couldn’t be more fun, right?

6. Your toughest critics:

Your sisters invented the term brutal honesty. They will tell you how bad you look, smell, and act without a hint of concern for your self-esteem or dignity. But hey! Who else is going to tell you that those side bangs from 2008 were a bad idea?

7. Personal chauffeurs

You could Uber or taxi, but that requires money and a tolerance for creepy old men. Your sisters not only get you from one destination to another, but they are also a free and non- creepy method of transportation! Thank your sisters for all the times they drove to parties, took you shopping in the mall, and gave your rides for food. They will appreciate it.

8. The social hookup

Take all the people you know and multiply it by the number of sisters you have. That is your social network. All your friends know them and all their friends know you. It’s a perfect way to stay in touch indirectly and know all the gossip all the time. It truly couldn’t be a more efficient system of remaining in the loop.

9. Inevitable Forgiveness

Fights happen. Some of the nastiest fights can be with your sisters. Sisters know every insecurity and every weakness about you so it can get ugly. But deep down as much as there are anger and hate brewing, there is even more love. You can go from mobilizing for a third world war to besties within minutes. It’s the beauty of having sisters. They are your forever and always as Taylor Swift would put it.

10. Built in Best Friends

This was God’s way of giving you best friends from birth. You laugh, cry, tease and giggle through every stage of life. These are the girls that will be there through anything and everything. At any battle and every struggle, they are right behind you. That’s the difference between every other relationship and sisters. Not all friendships last, and not all romances bloom, but sisterhood is infinite. They love you even when they hate you. What more could you want?

20 Fun Facts To Use When Introducing Yourself

As we embark on the semester, we are put on the spot in order to share interesting details about ourselves. This article discloses possible fun facts to tell others!

After experiencing my first week of classes, I have learned that every student needs a handy-dandy list of fun facts about themselves to tell other people. Many professors use the first couple of classes to learn about their students, so you may need to think about who you are and how you want to introduce yourself to your professor and classmates. We all have that one go-to interesting fact about ourselves, but sometimes you just have to mix it up!

1. My favorite hobby is...

What do you do in your free time? Personally, I love to stay active! I am a competitive Latin dancer and enjoy teaching and taking Zumba classes, going to the gym, and hiking.

2. I love...

Is there something, someone, or somewhere that you love? What makes your heart ache? What do you miss when it's gone? I can say that I love my friends because I feel my most confident when I'm surrounded by those who love and support me.

3. I look up to...

Is there someone you adore? Who mesmerizes you? Who do you wish to learn from? After watching "A Ballerina's Tale," I discovered Misty Copeland. In 2015 she became the first African American ballet dancer to become the Female Principal Dancer at American Ballet Theatre. Her passion, grace, and strength continuously motivate me to better myself as an athlete and an individual.

4. This art speaks to me because...

Coco Chanel said, "In order to be irreplaceable one must always be different." This encourages me to always follow my heart no matter what. I will never follow society's standards and norms because they do not define me. Chanel's saying definitely influences my character and lifestyle.

5. A funny and/or embarrassing memory of me is...

When you make others laugh they want to spend time and make memories with you! Don't be afraid to embarrass yourself. You will come off as down to earth, easy-going, and loyal.

6. My siblings or lack thereof influenced me by...

I can go on and on about my brother, who is 10 years older than I. We have opposite personalities and despite the age gap, we're quite close.

7. My pet(s) are my life because...

Only sad people don't like hearing about furry creatures, even if your pets are slimy and slithering creatures all human beings enjoy hearing pet tales!

8. I'm afraid of...

Your personality can be revealed by your likes and dislikes, including the things that you fear. I am terrified of change and the unknown, hence, the future is an anxiety-inducing topic to discuss for me.

9. I am the way I am because...

What have you gone through in life that has shaped you into who you are today? Remember to be open minded and allow yourself to open up to your peers. You may be surprised by how others respond and/or what others have endured as well.

10. The most unusual item that can be found in your dorm...

This is a fun fact about yourself that can easily liven up an awkward conversation. Think about your quirks and differences! One item I have in my dorm is my teddy bear, Peter, whom I like to joke is my boyfriend.

11. My dream job is...

In college, "What's your major?" is a widespread question. Nonetheless, skip the boring statement of "I'm majoring in..." and go in depth on what your dream job is (hopefully your major factors in to this dream of yours).

12. My hidden talents are...

Angelina Jolie is a knife thrower. Kendall Jenner can produce bird noises. Amanda Seyfried can crochet and knit. Is there anything special you can do? Some people have rare and unique talents, maybe you can think of some hidden talents of your own!

13. My guilty pleasure is...

I will say it a million times: don't be shy when introducing yourself to new people! I'll start by divulging my guilty pleasure: Youtube's family vlogging channel, "OKBaby"!

Check them out: https://www.youtube.com/channel/UCvUCbnwzySKgbKiB_...

14. Some activities on my bucket list are...

This is an easy way to grab people's attention and find others with similar desires as you. Be an adventurer! Go out of your comfort zone!

15. Talk about your best friend...

How would your best friend describe you? What do you love to do with your best friend?

16. Talk about an accomplishment of yours...

You are incredible and have achieved so much! Reveal something that you are proud of — show off a little!

17. This one time at my job...

Bosses breathing down your neck. Curious coworkers asking personal questions. Cursing customers who never leave you alone. Your job can be filled with tons of hilarious situations that can easily entertain a crowd.

18. During the summer...

Any scars with stories? Any summer flings? Any lessons learned from the tanning too long? Now that summer is over, disclose memories that can leave positive impressions on others.

19. I volunteer at...

Do you do any community service? Share a funny moment while you were volunteering. What did you learn while there? Would you continue?

20. [blank] is meaningful to me because...

What do you appreciate in life? What brightens your day? What makes you fall in love? What does someone have to do to make you smile?

Finally, remember to be outgoing! Reveal that three-mile smile and open your arms to learning about others. Spread smiles, love, and happiness.

An Open Letter To My Sorority's Newest Pledge Class From A Graduating Senior

Get ready for the best adventure of your life.


Welcome, ladies!

I'm sure you've heard it again and again, but we really are so incredibly excited to have you! Trust me. We put in a lot of work during spirit week and recruitment, and without a doubt, it was all worth it.

There is something truly special about looking at your new members and being genuinely excited for what the future of your chapter holds. For me, as the new member chairman of my chapter, my heart is bursting with joy over what our new girls are going to accomplish, over the leadership opportunities they're going to take, and over how much they will grow over their years here. And I know my other sisters feel the same way.

I would give anything to be able to go back, to do it all again. College years are some of the best. It's the last bit of childhood before reality sets in and you actually have to be an adult. But most importantly, college is about making memories; about discovering who you are and what your value is. The person I was when I joined my chapter just over two years ago as a sophomore is not the person I am today. Sure I'm still me, but I have found myself. I found my people. And most importantly, I believe in myself, which wouldn't have happened without my sorority.

You all are just starting out on your journey. My biggest piece of advice is to soak up every moment because trust me, it goes by entirely too fast. Being in a sorority is unlike anything else. It's hard to explain this instant bond you now have with not just the girls in your chapter, but all over the country, with thousands of girls, past, present and future. It's so special when you run into a sister in a random place and instantly feel at home. You'll have many of these moments, so enjoy them.

What I've found throughout my time in my chapter is you get what you give. If you don't try, if you don't come to events, and if you don't reach out to girls, you will not get as much out of the organization. Like with everything and anything in life, it doesn't come to you without trying; it works 50-50. So even if it pushes you out of your comfort zone to come to the house and not be sure someone you know will be there or to go to an event your closest friends might not be at, do it. These girls are all your sisters and love you. But you have to try and you have to put in the effort back. It will make the entire experience worth so much more.

I know it can be overwhelming and you probably are still finding yourself and your people, but don't worry, it happens. It might happen next week or next semester. But it will happen. Don't forget that you are in your chapter for a reason; your sisters wanted you, and they fought for you. These years will be the best of your life and will give you people and memories that will last well beyond your college years.

Soak it in. Make the most of every moment. Because as I start my senior year, I wish more than anything I could go back and do it all again.
