My Little Sister Isn't Biological, But Why Does That Matter?

My Little Sister Isn't Biological, But Why Does That Matter?

Family is love, nurture, patience, kindness, commitment, positivity so why should genes matter if you have everything else?

When I say, little sister, I never had, I unquestionably don't mean smaller, because you're certainly taller.

I don't mean more childish because let's be real, you are pretty mature for a 14-year-old. And, I for sure don't mean intelligent, because girl, you have the brains of a 40-year-old with a doctorates degree.

The meaning of little to me would be someone I want to look after. I want to be there for you through thick and thin. I want you to feel comfortable talking to me about things you don't feel comfortable talking to your parents about. I want to support you in any way you need me without you being scared of getting in trouble or embarrassed.

I want to give you the confidence that you deserve because you have a beautiful heart and soul and no one should ever tell you otherwise.

I want to be the one there to give you love and comfort when you are feeling low and give you lots of chocolate when you're having a rough week. I want to be there for you when you get your heart broken for the first time and when you break your first heart, because honey, it will happen.

I want to be there for you all the times I didn't have someone there for me. It is so crucial for everyone to have someone they can depend on when they are at there worst. Someone that is not a family member or professional physician. And, of course, someone they can trust.

We are fortuitous that we have had the chance to live right next to each other our whole lives and I feel blessed you came into my life at such a young age. Because of that, we have bonded together for so long and we will always be apart of each other's life no matter what obstacles are thrown our way, even distance.

I cannot wait for us to grow up and watch each other go through every little step of life. I will see you graduate high school and you will see me graduate college. I will see you get married and you will see me have children. I will see you go to the Olympics playing tennis and you will see me working on Broadway. We have so much to look forward to and there is so much more growing to do.

I can't wait to see the future unfold and watch us flourish together, just as sisters do.

Love you forever little Leta! XO

Lil Yachty's 'Lil Boat 2' May Not Be Enough To Keep Him Afloat

Here's what you need to know about "Lil Boat 2."

On March 9, Lil Yachty dropped his newest album, “Lil Boat 2.” The album consists of 17 songs, most of which were probably better off not being on the album and seriously failed to impress me, despite its early success on iTunes.

In all of the reviews I have ever written, I normally organize it song-by-song, giving feedback to each track. This time, however, I think I can save all of us time on this article by just being completely honest about Lil Yachty’s “Lil Boat 2.”

Most of the songs from 1-10 on the tracklist are NOT worth listening to.

Other than those three, every other song from the top ten songs on the tracklist were absolute garbage.

The beats to the songs weren’t that bad but, overall, it just sounded like Lil Yachty and his features were WAY too high to be in the studio.

Yachty’s flows, bars and rhyme schemes were ALL weak throughout the entire album, and if it weren’t for the final six songs on “Lil Boat 2,” this review would be nothing but bashing Lil Yachty.

From the 12th track on the album, "MICKEY" (ft. Offset, Lil Baby) the album runs through much more smoothly, regardless of how basic those last couple of songs are.

I imagine Lil Yachty’s fanbase consists mostly of teenagers who eat Tide for Internet views and anybody who knows nothing about what a real rapper is.

Seriously. I cannot stress how elementary this album is. If you’re looking for new rap music to listen to, check out Tory Lanez’s album, “MEMORIES DON’T DIE,” or Logic’s “Bobby Tarantino II.”

Both of those albums are so much better than “Lil Boat 2” that they make Yachty look like an amateur — which he is.

Final Score: 5.8/10

Did Draco Malfoy Ever Get The Clout He Deserved?

Yes, he was literally the worst for a majority of the series. But does this one moment make up for it all?

The new trailer for the “Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them” series just dropped and I have a LOT of feelings. Mainly:

With the release of this new trailer, the only natural thing to do is to binge watch the "Harry Potter" series. Now, if you don’t know about "Harry Potter" series, I’m going to assume that you were born literally minutes ago. For those of you who do know what I’m talking about, let’s chat.

Throughout the series, we see some pretty rotten witches, wizards and muggles. The worst being Bellatrix LeStrange, in my opinion.

*Side note: Voldemort killed meticulously and with his own “reasoning” that supported his actions. Bellatrix killed for sport. No reason was necessary to support her choices. Regardless of who I thought was worse, it doesn’t change the fact that they were both 100% assholes.*

Throughout the movie, and even more so throughout the book, we are able to see slight character arcs for a majority of these lesser-evil villains, such as Petunia Dursley, Narcissa Malloy, Snape, and Draco Malfoy.

After Snape, Draco had one of the biggest character arcs in the series. He saved Harry and, ultimately, through his actions, gave Harry one last chance to defeat Voldemort. How? Well, Pottermore explains it best, but to put it simply, he refused to give Harry, Ron, and Hermione up to Bellatrix and the Snatchers.

This moment is so pivotal and apparent in the books, yet on screen, while it’s still a huge moment, it still gets downplayed. The weight of the moment isn’t truly felt and could be taken as more of a mistake on Malfoy’s part. That moment, if not understood correctly, could change many viewers' opinions about Draco's transformation from elitist, bigot, selfish snob to a (slightly) unknowingly ignorant, scared, defeated teen.

Damnit, J.K. Rowling, you’ve done it again. Even after all these years, somehow I still always seem to find something new.

Now let’s talk about how the new movie will allow the Ministry to apparate onto Hogwarts?!
