14 Things My Best Friend's Little Sister Should Know

There's something magnificent about watching your best friend's younger sibling grow up. You have the opportunity to watch them go encounter everything that you experienced with your best friend. One advantage to this is that you will be able to catch on to any sketchy behavior and know what's really going on. Additionally, you're given the gift of being able to guide her through life with the escapades you've been through.

1. When we kicked you out of the room in high school, it was only because we were grumpy teenagers that wanted to be left alone (together)

2. We usually didn't have the answer so you were served with "you will understand when you're older" (too) often

3. I played dolls with you more for your happiness than for your sister's

4. The first time (and every time thereafter) that you bring a boy home, expect me to monitor him even more than your parents

5. If he hurts you, I hurt him

6. I will be sitting in the first row at your high school graduation crying and taking pictures

7. I will be there when you decided what college to go to and I'll rock out all the apparel

8. I'm moving you into your dorm (each year)

9. Your 1st-12th drink on your 21st birthday will be paid for by me, while sitting with me

10. When I am at your college graduation, my old age will finally hit me

11. At your wedding, your sister and I are going to be crazy old ladies dancing in a drunk frenzy

12. Half of the items in your first home will be courtesy of me

13. I'm going to spoil your children so much they'll think I'm their second mother

14. You're my little sister too, I love you!

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.

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.

Consider these 21 questions to ask in the talking stage when getting to know that new guy or girl you just started talking to:

Challah vs. Easter Bread: A Delicious Dilemma

Is there really such a difference in Challah bread or Easter Bread?

Ever since I could remember, it was a treat to receive Easter Bread made by my grandmother. We would only have it once a year and the wait was excruciating. Now that my grandmother has gotten older, she has stopped baking a lot of her recipes that require a lot of hand usage--her traditional Italian baking means no machines. So for the past few years, I have missed enjoying my Easter Bread.
