To My Little Sister, As She Graduates Middle School

Regardless of the age difference, you are still my best friend.

To My Little Sister, As She Graduates Middle School
Megan Crabb

When I was younger, I used to bully my sister mercilessly. I would make her do things for me like get me a drink while I was watching TV or I would fight with her until she cried. It was so bad that my aunt actually sent me a care package with a long letter, books and some other things on how to get along with my siblings. But you wouldn't guess that from our relationship now.

No photo description available.

My little sister is now almost 14 and heading for her freshman year of high school. We go shopping together, spend evenings practicing makeup together and build forts with chairs and blankets to watch scary movies late at night during the summers. We go for bike rides and when I'm at school, I FaceTime her multiple times a week. We talk every single day.

10 years ago, I didn't think I would ever be close to my sister. Now, I can't even go a day without talking to her. As she heads into high school, I hope there are a few things she knows and has learned through the things I have taught her.

I hope that she can be the confident, outspoken freshman that I never was. I hope she stands up to the people who have the nerve to bully her the way I was bullied. I hope she cherishes every moment of her homecoming football games and dances because even though they are not the high points of life like I thought they once were, they are fun memories you can never forget.

I hope she realizes to work hard on her schoolwork before it's too late and doesn't have to play catch up as I did. I hope her friends invite her to dozens of sleepovers and they spend hours talking and laughing over nothing. But most of all, I hope she knows she will always have her big sister regardless of what happens.

10 years ago, I could've cared less about being friends with her, giving her advice or being there for her at all. Now, I don't know what I would do without her.

No Sex And Upstate New York

A modern-day reincarnation of Carrie Bradshaw's classic column


Around the age of 12, when I was deciding whether or not to be gay, Satan appeared on my left shoulder. “Ramsssey,” he said with that telltale lisp. “Come over to our side. We have crazy partiessss.” He made a strong case, bouncing up and down on my shoulder with six-pack abs and form-fitting Calvin Kleins. An angel popped up on the other shoulder and was going to warn me about something, but Satan interrupted- “Shut up, you crusty-ass bitch!’ The angel was pretty crusty. She disappeared, and from that moment forward I was gay.

Senior Year Is Here And I Am So Not Ready For It

I was you not that long ago. I was once an eager freshman, a searching sophomore, and a know-it-all junior. Now? Now I am a risk taker. Not the type that gets you in trouble with your parents, but the type that changes your future. Senior year is exciting. A lot of awesome things come along with being the top-dog of the school, but you, right now, are building the foundation for the next 4 years that you will spend in high school. I know you've heard it all. "Get involved", "You'll regret not going to prom", "You're going to miss this". As redundant as these seem, they're true. Although I am just at the beginning of my senior year, I am realizing how many lasts I am encountering.

Why Driving Drives Me Crazy

the highways are home


With Halloween quickly approaching, I have been talking to coworkers about what scares us. There are always the obvious things like clowns, spiders, heights, etc. But me? There are a number things I don't like: trusting strangers, being yelled at, being in life or death situations, parallel parking. All of these are included when you get behind the wheel of a car.
