When you find the Blair to your Serena, you are not only gaining a best friend but also an additional member to your family, a future bridesmaid, and a forever valentine. When you find your soul sister, you know it's meant to be and then you end up with pretty crazy stories and amazing things that only come when you've found your soul sister! Here's how you know you have found the Blair to your Serena:

1. Accidental twinning/sharing clothes

Your styles are so similar that quite often, you end up showing up to the same place in the same exact go-to outfit. On top of that, you frequently raid each other's closets and share clothes because come on, what are best friends for?

2. Choosing outfits

To avoid the stress and chaos of #1, you plan outfits ahead of time and send pictures of potential trend-setting clothes to get the best input you can from none other than your soul sister! Much like Blair and Serena, anything calls for spontaneous shopping trips!

3. Car rides

The jam sessions you have with this person cannot be topped by anyone else --especially the car jams, am I right? So every time you plan to go somewhere, you get excited!

4. Selfies

Along with #2, you will frequently send mass amounts of selfies to your BFF to have her choose which one to post on social media, and of course the endless amount of selfies you take together! It's okay, everyone does it!

5. Confidence

A soul sister should boost your confidence and make you feel awesome about yourself whenever you need it. Most importantly when you are together, you feel like nothing can stop you!

6. Her family is mine

And my family is her's! Sometimes I think my family misses her more than they miss me!

7. Favorite place

Every time you two are together, it's tradition to go to your favorite spot - just like Blair and Serena we love our coffee! We have spent more time and money at Dutch Bros than I'd like to admit!

8. Someone to laugh with

Laughing is never a surprise when with your soul sister! Most of the time it's all you do when you are with each other!

9. Partner in crime

Much like Blair and Serena, you can find yourself in some mischief while looking absolutely amazing!

10. Honesty

When you have a soul sister, honesty is the only policy! She will give you real, upfront advice even if it isn't quite what you want to hear.

11. You have a fan

Much like Blair and Serena, my soul sister makes me feel like I'm on top of the world 24/7 and provides me with support in everything I do, and I try to do the same for her! A little love and encouragement goes a long way!

12. Funny tweets

Whenever I stumble across a funny tweet, I always send it her direction because I know she will find it humorous and appreciate it as much as I do!

13. Gifts

I get so excited to show people I care about them by buying little gifts that remind me of them or even just buying them a cup of coffee to show them I love them!

14. Texting

If people saw any of your text messages to each other, they might just think you are crazy. I'm talking about road rage rants, full conversations with GIFs, and even the ugly pictures you send back and forth!

15. Package deal

You and your soul sister are a two-in-one deal! If you invite one of us somewhere, more often than not, (unless it's a date, but even then one of us would be at the same place monitoring) we will both be there to stir up a little trouble and have some fun!

Dear Mom, From Your Daughter In College

Here are all the things our phone calls aren't long enough to say.

Dear Mom,

Do you remember when I was three and we would play together? It was the age of princesses and carpet that was actually lava, and you were the prettiest woman in the whole wide world. Do you remember when I was in high school and the world seemed too big and scary? You would know exactly when to take me on a mother-daughter date and have me laughing about anything and everything, and you were the smartest woman in the whole wide world. Now, I'm buried in homework and deadlines hours away from you and we don't get to talk as much you want, but you're still the prettiest, smartest woman in the whole wide world.

I'm sorry that I don't call you as much as I should, and you know a lot of what goes on in my world via posts and pictures. Our schedules just seem to never line up so we can have the three-hour conversations about everything like I want to. I know we don't agree on absolutely everything, but I cherish every piece of advice you give me, even though it probably seems like I'm hardly listening. I know that sometimes we get on each other's nerves, but thank you for putting up with me for all of these years. Thank you for listening to me cry, complain, question things and go on and on about how everything in college is. I know I don't come home as much as I used to, but I think about you all the time. After all, you're my first friend, and therefore, my best friend.

Thank you for celebrating my successes with me, and not downing me too hard for my failures. Thank you for knowing what mistakes I shouldn't make, but letting me make them anyway because you want me to live my life and be my own person. Thank you for knowing when to ask about the boy I've been talking about, and when to stop without any questions. Thank you for letting me be my crazy, weird, sometimes know-it-all self.

Thank you for sitting back and watching me spread my wings and fly. There is no way I could have known how to grow into the woman I am today if I hadn't watched you while I was growing up so I would know what kind of person I should aspire to be. Thank you for being the first (and the best) role model I ever had. You continue to inspire and amaze me every day with all that you do, and all that you are.

I don't know how I got so lucky to have a person in my life like you, but I thank the Lord every night for blessing me with the smartest, prettiest person to be my best friend, my role model, my confidant, my person and most importantly, my mother.

Love,

Your daughter

You Have To Give A Brick To Build Lasting Relationships

Vulnerability is the key to building lasting, impactful relationships.

59

Guys build relationships through shoulder-to-shoulder interactions. These interactions include: playing sports together, watching sports together, or getting drinks at a bar together.

Girls are the opposite. Girls build relationships through face to face interactions and by being vulnerable with one another. Shared experiences and talking about things we have done and been through is what brings us closer together.

This process of being vulnerable and sharing stories about our experiences is what is referred to as "giving bricks."

During sorority recruitment work week, we had an amazing public speaker who came to talk to us about the relationship between sorority women and potential new members, and how to quickly and effectively build a good rapport.

Throughout her speech, so many new concepts and analogies unfolded before my eyes that ended up leaving a huge impact on me. Namely, her concept of "giving bricks." The topic of conversation began with how to break beneath the surface level with a person you have just met and dig deeper. During sorority recruitment, it is important to get to know who a girl is deep down, beyond what her major is and where she is from. Small talk is friendly, sure. However, small talk does not enable you to fully understand and capture who a person truly is.

Imagine a tall brick wall. Reach up as high as you can and pick off a brick from the very top. Now give it to someone you just met. Just like in Jenga, taking a block from the top essentially does nothing and will not cause your tower to come crashing to the floor. In relationship building, if you share a very small, surface level piece of information with somebody, it will not negatively affect your relationship with that person but it won't make it better either. Handing over a brick from the top of your wall is not the way to dig deep and find out who somebody is.

Now imagine yourself taking a brick from the center of your wall. It's a little tougher to access and takes some effort to remove it, but again, it will not send your wall toppling to the ground. Sharing something personal with another person will actually encourage them to do the same with you. If you give someone a brick from the middle, they likely will give you one from the middle of their wall too because you just opened up a conversation. You are inviting them to dive below the surface level and your vulnerability will give them the confidence to share something a little more personal with you. Not harmful, not too invasive, but just enough to catch a glimpse at their character and what they are interested in or what is important to them.

Finally, try taking a brick from the very base of your wall. It is taxing. It is hardest to access, and it made the rest of your structure shake and teeter a bit. Selecting a brick from the most important part of your wall is the hardest grab thus far. It literally is the foundation of the rest of your wall. You are the wall. Digging deep, getting vulnerable, and sharing personal information about what we value and fear most, trust and steer clear of most is what will build the most authentic, genuine relationship. It is the most vulnerable you can be with another person.

If you decide to give a brick from the bottom of your wall to another person, they will crouch down and pick up a brick straight from their foundation too and hand it straight over. Giving a brick from the base is equivalent to building a strong, lasting relationship with another person. It is something intimate and deep you get to experience together. Your closest friends are the people you share the most bricks with, and the people you call acquaintances only get the bricks from the tippy top.

Whether you chose to give a brick from the top, middle, or base to hand over to someone will determine how close you are willing to get to them. If your goal is to get to know them, you have to share something about yourself.

What is important to you? What motivates you in life? What are the things that make up YOUR foundation?
