What My Greek Twin Means to Me

What My Greek Twin Means to Me

The many reasons why having a Greek Twin is the best.

What My Greek Twin Means to Me

One of the most exciting weeks when you become a new member is, hands down, big/little week. You are eagerly looking around figuring out who would make the best role model for you. Who do you see as actually being your big sister? Little do you know that some of the potential bigs are taking twins. Some of us would think that being a twin would be a terrible idea; you want to have your big just to yourself. Who likes to share!? Some of us would love the idea of being a twin. That gives you a better chance to get to know more of your sisters better. Personally for me, I wasn’t sure about the idea of being a Twin. But when the day of big/little reveal came around, I didn’t realize how much of an impact my Greek twin would make in my life.    

Unfortunately not every sister gets the opportunity to be a Greek twin. My pledge class was so huge, that most of the potential bigs had to take twins; there were only a few of my sisters that were not twins. It makes me sad that not every sister gets to experience being a twin because they are missing out on so much. Here are the many benefits of being a Greek twin...

My Greek twin becomes my second Big.

Of course we both love our big very much. But because she is a Senior, she can get a little busy sometimes with graduation right around the corner. If I ever need another shoulder to lean on, my twin is there for me. If I am ever in trouble throughout the day and I need someone’s help, I have my twin on speed dial and I know she will be there for me within seconds. If I ever crave for McDonald’s at 2 a.m., I know for sure that my twin will be parked in front of my residence hall, honking her horn and screaming, “Hurry, I need a McDonald’s Coke!” My twin then becomes the big sister I wish I had. My Twin also becomes a role model to me; she is someone I can look up to. 

My Greek twin and I literally act like twins.

Suddenly you start to realize that you and your twin start to think act alike. You become each other's two peas in a pod. You both catch yourselves saying the same thing, you both start to dress alike and you both became each other’s best friend. My Greek twin is literally my other half. Whenever I have required events to go to for my sorority, I get a little lost whenever my twin isn’t there. Whenever my sisters see that I am not with my twin, they also ask where she is. With that being asked, I always know where my twin is.  

My Greek Twin is referred as Twin or Twinnie, Never by her full name unless we are having a serious conversation.
The only time I ever use her real name is whenever we are having a heart-to-heart conversation.  

Lastly, my Greek twin gives me the best advice.

Chances are, your Greek twin has been through a lot of crazy situations that you are personally dealing with now. They are the best whenever it comes to giving advice because they have been in the same shoes! Not only do they give the best advice about life, they give you the best advice whenever it comes to clothes. Sure you think you look good in that skinny red dress, but your twin will straight up tell you that you look like a hooker getting ready to be picked up at the corner. Your twin will tell you the truth no matter what; they tell it how it is.  

If it weren’t for my Greek twin, I would have never found one of my best friends. My twin is my rock and she has easily become one of the most important people in life. Yeah, it might annoy others how obsessed we are with each other, but those that are not twins will never experience the true meaning of friendship.

"I haven't been able to get out of the 'talking phase' with anyone."

The reality is, there's no part of life the pandemic hasn't affected. Whether it's your work life, your home life, your social life, or your love life, coronavirus (COVID-19) is wreaking havoc on just about everything — not to mention people's health.

Nordstrom's Biggest Sale Has The Most Legendary Deals On Luxury Beauty Brands We've Ever Seen

Counting down the days to the Chanel box set gracing my front door.

I oftentimes (excessively) use the excuse of my job as a writer to justify my excessive spending habits.

I needed the new Huda Beauty palette before anyone else in the name of journalistic integrity. It was my job to test out the new Francis Kurkdjian fragrance to make sure I could tell people whether or not it was truly worth the splurge (it was).

Listen, you can do whatever you want with your free time. It's yours to spend and you have free range. However, I hope you recognize that there are a ton of proactive things you can do right now instead of stalking your man's ex – yes, I know you do it becuase we are all guilty of it.

Take this time to research your privilege. There are always new things to learn and ways to deepen your understanding of yourself, this world, and your surroundings. We live in a multi-dimensional, ever-changing society that needs your help and your time. By that, I mean there are so many layers to each and every one of us, and with our physical, mental, spiritual, or emotional selves, we can create real, positive change.

Preview These Top Nordstrom Anniversary Sale 2020 Picks — From Luxury Purses To Skincare

Currently 3 million people viewing the Stella McCartney purse I absolutely must have.

Online shopping has been a guilty pleasure of ours for years, but now more than ever it's been a shopping lover's outlet for all our home redecorating projects and resort wear we're purchasing for that trip we had to cancel.

One of my favorite places to (virtually) window shop has always been Nordstrom. I admittedly can't afford to go on sprees there often, but I still get a high off of adding things to my cart I know I'll never actually end up buying. But sometimes, that's not enough — that's when I, like the masses of luxury-, beauty-, fashion-, and decor-lovers around the world count the days down to the annual Nordstrom Anniversary Sale.

I remember the days where closet drinking before going to a party or bar was part of the night's itinerary. It was a requirement to have a good buzz flowing before calling the Uber to take you to that bar where you see everyone from your high school at. The pregames were the best part of the night, but it wasn't ever because of the alcohol, it was because of the atmosphere and those who were in it. The number of times I've heard "Wait, why aren't you drinking tonight? C'mon, get drunk with us" is endless, but think about it. Where were you when you were asked that? You were at the goddamn pregame and being there doesn't mean you need to be ripping shots. Being social doesn't require alcohol.

I asked 20 people how they cut back on alcohol while still being social.

Rihanna is known for many things: her music, fashion, makeup, and now skincare. As a makeup artist myself, I can confidently say that she rocked the makeup world when she released her makeup line in 2017 and has been influencing the beauty world ever since.

Trying some of her makeup products myself, I know that she doesn't skimp on quality, and even though some of her products may be a little pricey, trust me, you get what you pay for.

Friends, no one needs to be reminded that the COVID-19 pandemic rages on in the U.S. Frankly, this is because we have all collectively decided not to do the one simple thing that was asked of us and wear a mask.

I could make this a very boring article, and berate you with facts and statistics and the importance of wearing a mask, but I have opted against that for both of our sakes. Instead, I will attempt to reach you in another way. You might not care about a disapproving look from me, but from Nick Miller? Maybe that will be enough to change your mind.
