When You Give A Girl A Nonbiological Sister

No matter what happens in this life, you'll always be my sister.

When You Give A Girl A Nonbiological Sister
Kenzie Williams

To my nonbiological sister,

You have been in my life for the past seven years. You have guided me through my first heartbreak, the bullying incidents that I went through and overall, you have made me laugh more than anyone else could've.

I can still remember one of the very first times that I met you. I told you about how I liked your hair and I kept asking if you were dating my brother yet. I was ten years old and I had already figured out that you were going to be in my life forever. At times, I wonder if God put you into our lives for my brother, or to give me one thing that I have always wanted: a sister.

We have so many memories together that I could never forget. Anytime someone hurt me, you were there and ready to fight, but you were also there with a bag of popcorn, Netflix and your shoulder to cry on. When we first met, you thought I was annoying and you yelled at me sometimes, but what we have become since those days is amazing. I wouldn't trade you for the world. You have been my best friend for seven years and the only person there for me when nobody else was. I am so thankful that God put you into my life because if it weren't for you and everything you have taught me, I wouldn't be the person I am today.

The biggest thing that I will always be thankful for is the fact that you have taught me to have a faith that is stronger than life itself. You have always said if you put God in the center of any relationship, it is bound to last. I have thought about that saying for years, and I have noticed that it is completely true. Anytime I lose sight of my faith, you are right there to make me believe again. Making me center my relationships around God is the greatest lesson you could have ever taught me.

When I try to put words together to explain what you meant to me, I just can not seem to do it, because no amount of words could ever explain that. If I ever need anything, I know that I can call you. I know that you will be on the other side of that phone listening to me rant for hours and vice versa.

Because of you, I believe that I will always have someone by my side. I will always have someone who is going to make me laugh until I cry. You have made me believe that there are genuine people all throughout this world. I believe that God brings everyone into our lives for a reason. When people say, "Everything happens for a reason," they are all so true. You have changed my life forever and I could never imagine my life without you.

Finally, I really want to tell you how thankful I am for you. Everything you do doesn't go unnoticed. I wouldn't be the person I am today if it weren't for you and everything you have taught me. In the past seven years, you have become the biggest blessing in my life and I don't have any idea what I would do without you Thank you for being my nonbiological sister, for sticking with my brother even though he can be a handful, for making me laugh until we cry all the time and most of all, thank you for being you.

One last thing: no matter what happens in this life, you'll always be my sister.

P.S. I Love you, tat.


Your unbiological sister.

6 Questions To Ask Yourself When Cleaning Up Your Room

This holiday break is the perfect time to get away from the materialistic frenzy of the world and turn your room into a decluttered sanctuary.


Cleaning isn’t just for spring. In fact, I find school’s holiday break to be a very effective time for decluttering. You’re already being bombarded by the materialistically-infatuated frenzy of society’s version of Christmas, Hanukah, etc. It’s nice to get out of the claustrophobic avarice of the world and come home to a clean, fresh, and tidy room. While stacking up old books, CDs, and shoes may seem like no big deal, it can become a dangerous habit. The longer you hang onto something, whether it be for sentimental value or simply routine, it becomes much harder to let go of. Starting the process of decluttering can be the hardest part. To make it a little easier, get out three boxes and label them Donate, Storage, and Trash. I'm in the middle of the process right now, and while it is quite time consuming, it is also so relieving and calming to see how much you don't have to deal with anymore. Use these six questions below to help decide where an item gets sorted or if it obtains the value to stay out in your precious sanctuary from the world.

Why I Don't Write (Or Read) An "Open Letter To My Future Husband/Wife"

Because inflated expectations and having marriage as your only goal are overrated.

Urban Intellectuals

Although I have since changed my major I remember the feverish hysteria of applying to nursing school--refreshing your email repeatedly, asking friends, and frantically calculating your GPA at ungodly hours of the night. When my acceptance came in I announced the news to friends and family with all the candor of your average collegiate. I was met with well wishes, congratulations, and interrogations on the program's rank, size, etc. Then, unexpectedly, I was met with something else.

"Arthur's Perfect Christmas" Is The Perfect Holiday Special, Move Over Charlie Brown

Arthur Read is here to deliver the real meaning of Christmas.


As the holiday season draws nearer, many of us find ourselves drawn to the same old Rankin-Bass Christmas specials and the perennial favorite, "A Charlie Brown Christmas." However, I would like to suggest an overlooked alternative, "Arthur's Perfect Christmas." It is a heartfelt, funny, and surprisingly inclusive Christmas special that deserves more recognition.
