What It Means To Be A Sister By Choice, Not By Blood

You may not be sisters biologically, but the bond you share is just as strong.

What It Means To Be A Sister By Choice, Not By Blood
Nicolle Majette

After only a semester and a half at college, I have met the most amazing people who I am so lucky to call my sisters. Although the time we've known each other is small, it feels as if we've known each other forever. Through thick and thin, we're always there for each other, helping each other out and being there whenever we need it. These girls truly are the sisters I've never had, and I'm so grateful for each and every one of them. From them, I have learned what it means to be a sister.

Sisters always are there for each other. No matter how busy we may be with school, work, etc. sisters always make time for each other. Even if its just a trip to the dining hall, making time for each other is so important.

Sisters are the best people to confide in, and you know you can trust them with anything. Having people who know your deepest secrets can be scary, however, you know that whatever is said within the group stays in the group.

Nothing is better than the group chat. The group chat is where it all goes down. Memes, jokes, spilling tea, boy talk, you name it. The group chat is the ultimate reflection of the friend group, and where everyone's true self comes out. Nothing is better than re-reading old messages in the group chat together and dying about all the memories.

You must be ready at any moment to take pictures. This might not be true with every friend group, but at least in mine, we love. taking. pictures. At any given moment, you must be ready to flick up. A true sister will be ready to have a photo shoot anywhere, and have her friends looking right.

You'll always have people to hang out with. No matter what, you will always have someone to go get food with, study, or go out with.

You may fight like actual sisters but will always make up. Nothing is worse than getting into a fight with your closest friends, but also nothing is better than the moment where you make up and everything is good again. Fighting is a part of every relationship, but it makes the bond you share stronger.

I am forever grateful for my friends that I've met at school. From our "sister sleepovers" to our crazy Friday night adventures, nothing makes me happier than spending time with the people who know me the best. Thank you for being my best friends, and my sisters.

Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we are becoming.

If there's one thing I'm absolutely terrible at, it's giving myself grace. I'm easily my own worst critic in almost everything that I do. I'm a raging perfectionist, and I have unrealistic expectations for myself at times. I can remember simple errors I made years ago, and I still hold on to them. The biggest thing I'm trying to work on is giving myself grace. I've realized that when I don't give myself grace, I miss out on being human. Even more so, I've realized that in order to give grace to others, I need to learn how to give grace to myself, too. So often, we let perfection dominate our lives without even realizing it. I've decided to change that in my own life, and I hope you'll consider doing that, too. Grace begins with a simple awareness of who we are and who we're becoming. As you read through these five affirmations and ways to give yourself grace, I hope you'll take them in. Read them. Write them down. Think about them. Most of all, I hope you'll use them to encourage yourself and realize that you are never alone and you always have the power to change your story.

How Young Feminists Can Understand And Subvert The Internalized Male Gaze

Women's self-commodification, applied through oppression and permission, is an elusive yet sexist characteristic of a laissez-faire society, where women solely exist to be consumed. (P.S. justice for Megan Fox)

Paramount Pictures

Within various theories of social science and visual media, academics present the male gaze as a nebulous idea during their headache-inducing meta-discussions. However, the internalized male gaze is a reality, which is present to most people who identify as women. As we mature, we experience realizations of the perpetual male gaze.

Open-mindedness. It is something we all need a reminder of some days. Whether it's in regards to politics, religion, everyday life, or rarities in life, it is crucial to be open-minded.
