An Open Letter To My Unbiological Sister

I love you for all that you are, all that you have been, and all you're going to be.

An Open Letter To My Unbiological Sister
Sam Olson

Hey you,

Let me first begin by saying that knowing you has been one of the greatest blessings I could have ever hoped for. You came into my life in an incredibly unexpected way. I will never forget the first time we chatted, instantly connecting over some silly boy. I didn't know it then, but you would soon become one of the most important people in my life. I am so lucky that you did!

Watching you grow has been an exceptional experience in my life. You are determined to find happiness in the places where few look. You create your own silver linings and refuse to let anything stand in your way. You possess traits that are nothing short of admirable and have shaped my perspective on the importance of kindness in all circumstances.

We've both overcome tough obstacles throughout the past few years, but have always been there for each other. We might not talk every day, but when we do we both know nothing has changed. Distance and time do not have the power to change the relationship we have built. No matter what you will face in your lifetime, you will always have a friend in me. I am forever grateful that you are someone who will listen to my hopes, dreams, and fears without judgment. There will never be enough time to repay you for the tremendous role you have played in my life.

Though I don't say it enough, I hope you know how much I love you. You are filled with a kindness that I've rarely found in other people. You are intelligent, talented, and filled with beauty. You continuously inspire me to fight for the best version of myself. You, my dear, fall nothing short of amazing. I cannot imagine my life without you.

In every way imaginable, you have been a piece of my family. You have stood by my side through sunshine and storms. When I was plagued with doubt, you helped me to believe in my capabilities. You supported me more than I could ever ask for. I know (without a doubt) that you will be by my side for the rest of my life.

I can't imagine what my life would have become if I had never been privileged enough to meet you. You are one of my most favorite people of all time. God may have known that no mother could handle us as blood sisters, but understood how important you would be in my life. I love you eight days a week, my dear sister. I am forever grateful for your presence in my life. And, above all other things, I cannot wait to watch you change this world. Thank you for being the best unbiological sister I could have ever asked for.

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.

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.
