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.

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.
