10 Things You Realize When Your Little Sister Grows Up

10 Things You Realize As Your Little Sister Grows Up And Becomes Her Own Person

Nothing could ever compare to the bond of two sisters.


Having a little sister is a blessing. They are basically a built-in best friend who follows you around to the end of the earth. Even when you don't want them to. They take your clothes, copy everything you do, and look up to you. As they start to grow up though and figure out who they are, there are a few things that you realize. Here are ten of them:

Your clothes go missing more often.


Have you ever gone past your sister and did a double take at what she was wearing. Plenty of times I have noticed my sister wearing my shoes or a jacket, taken directly from my closet. Don't even get me started on how much she raids your closet once you leave for college.

Sometimes though, you got to admit, that she pulls off some of your clothes better than you do.

She asks you to drive her everywhere.


Apparently having an older sibling that can drive is the coolest thing. Thus, she wants you to take her everywhere and anywhere. However, memories can be made this way and it can actually be fun to jam out to music while driving on the freeway.

Sarcastic teenage-girl sass is real.


You ask her a question and she gives you a sassy remark. Time after time, she replies with statements and attitudes that almost make you question why you hang out with her.

No boy will ever be good enough for her.

Sister's Boyfriend

This is a big one. You will know he's the one when I approve, just because I am so hard on anyone that comes near my siblings. Future boyfriends of my sister, beware.

She will always be game to come along on an adventure.

The Hobbit

When in doubt, your sister will come with you. I can't tell you how many times I took my sister somewhere with me because I didn't want to go alone, or she was the only one who would come with me. It's pretty touching when your sister is willing to do something boring in order to hang out with you.

Until she gets too cool and decides her friends are more fun.


Then there are the times when she's too busy with her friends to hang out with you. So you better enjoy the moments when she is with you before they disappear in her teen years.

She looks up to you.


No matter what she may do or say, you are her role model. She looks to you for advice, how to deal with life, and for all the details on what is cool and in style. She may get annoying at times, but she loves you, and she wants to be just like you.

You will always worry about her.


Every move she makes and decision she decides will worry you. You don't want her making any of the mistakes you did and wish you could bubble wrap the whole world and shield her from any harm. It's a dark and scary place out there and you don't want it to touch her.

She is your best friend.


Who is always game for movie nights? Who will go with you to a coffee shop at the drop of a hat? Who will take photos for you for your Instagram?

Your sister is your best friend and will never leave you. Through thick and thin, she is the one you can always count on.

No matter how old she gets, she will always be your little sister.


She may get older and wiser and not need you as much, but no matter what, she will stay your little sister. You will always try to keep the world from harming her and protect her from every little thing.

Sisters are precious relationships that last forever. Go hug your sister today and tell her you love her.

These Superfood Beauty Products Show Kale And Matcha Work For SO Much More Than We Thought

Just another summer's day with a cold glass of kombucha on my face.

I've been vegan for about six years now, so a love for fresh vegetables and superfoods has now become a core part of my being. Don't get me wrong. I love my indulgent, creamy pastas and truffle fries more than anyone. But I keep most of my focus on eating clean and healthy so I can indulge guilt-free.

But I'd say about a large part of my diet has always, unknowingly, included superfoods. Being Indian, lentils, beetroot, garlic, ginger, and whole grains have been core essentials on the family dinner table since I could digest solid foods.

We Asked You How You Felt About Resuming 'Normal' Activities, And Some Of Your Answers Shocked Us

The New York Times asked 511 epidemiologists when they'd feel comfortable doing "normal" activities again, considering COVID-19. We asked our peers the same thing, for science.

Last month, the New York Times surveyed about 500 epidemiologists asking about their comfort level with certain activities once deemed normal — socializing with friends, going to the doctor, bringing in the mail. That's all well and good for the experts, but they are a very niche group, not the majority of the population. What do "normal" people feel safe doing? In certain states, we've seen how comfortable everyone is with everything (looking at you, Florida), but we wanted to know where Odyssey's readers fell on the comfort scale. Are they sticking with the epidemiologists who won't be attending a wedding for another year, or are they storming the sunny beaches as soon as possible?
